Corporate Relocation: Ensure Your Vehicle Will Make It Home Safe!

Corporate Relocations

During hard economic times, the ability to be flexible in your job is a must.  More and more, companies are looking for employees who would be willing to move if necessary.  This is a huge decision and many factors play into it, especially the worry that all your property won’t make it to your new destination safely.  One thing you shouldn't have to worry about is your vehicle.  There are a few key things you can do to ensure your vehicle arrives at your new home safe and sound.


When searching for a company to move your vehicle, be sure to not only consider the price, but also insurance, licensing, customer reviews and registration.

Insurance is one of the most important things to keep in mind when hiring a motor carrier.  As of March 2011, auto movers are no longer required to maintain a minimum amount of cargo insurance, which opens up the possibility of significant damage costs.  Make sure the partner you choose has $1,000,000 liability coverage and at least $100,000 in cargo damage limits.  This ensures that the company you hire has sufficient insurance to keep you safe in case there is an accident or damage during transport.  MetroGistics carries extra contingent cargo coverage in the amount of $500,000, making sure your vehicle is protected every step of the way.

Licensing and registration are also very important, and you should always request this information before hiring an auto mover.  The main thing to look for here is the Motor Carrier Number/Operating Authority.  This is a number that a company receives after they have shown proof of all requirements to receive operating authority through The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.   Your transport company should be able to present to you their certificate as proof that everything is registered properly.  Our MC (Motor Carrier Number) is 702188.

Finally, make sure you read a few reviews before making your final decision.  You can learn a lot about a company by reading what others in your position have experienced.  You can visit some of our testimonials here.

As long as you prepare properly and make sure that the company you chose is a good one, transporting your vehicle will be an easy and stress-free task. Take the time to do your homework and everything will work out great!
