National Car Transport of Miami, Florida, provides vehicle transportation services to destinations around the country. The company maintains offices in several Florida cities, including Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton. National Car was established in 1999, and, today, positions itself as one of the largest and most reliable providers of vehicle transportation services in Florida.
Licensed Interstate Broker
According to a National Car Transport review maintained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the company is an auto transportation broker licensed for interstate operations. National Car does not own any carriers. Instead, it partners with a wide range of automobile transportation companies to help arrange vehicle transportation services on behalf of customers.
Vehicle Transportation Services
Despite the company’s name, National Car transports a whole range of other vehicles besides cars. The company also transports SUVs, minivans, recreational vehicles, motorcycles and boats. National Car specializes in hauling inoperable vehicles, classic automobiles, antique cars and sports vehicles. The costs associated with transporting such vehicles, though, are typically higher than its usual rates.
Pickup and Delivery Times
All cars are transported by default on open carriers, unless the customer specifically requests enclosed carrier transportation. National Car says it requires at least 10 days notice in order to schedule a pick up. The company offers a three-day window for pickup and delivery. National Car charges an additional fee for customers who want their vehicles to be picked up and dropped off on specific dates. Coast-to-coast moves take between 10 and 14 days, while shorter trips take about five days, according to National Car Transport.
Port Pickup and Delivery Service
One service that National Car offers, which many others do not, is port pickup and delivery. National Car Transport has several drivers on its roster that have the requisite permits and the security clearances needed to enter U.S. ports. Customers can simply hand their port reservation number to National Car, and the company will find a driver to pick the vehicle up from the port and deliver it to the customer’s home.
National Car appears to have a solid reputation among customers. Previous customers of the company have given it a four-star rating out of a possible five for its customer service, overall responsiveness, and pricing. According to a National Car Transport review by the Better Business Bureau, the company has received only a handful of complaints over the past three years, all of which have been successfully resolved.
