As a classic and specialty car dealer in the business of selling collector cars, there are times when you have to ship vehicles to clients and auctions across the country. We know how stressful and time-consuming this process can be.
We’re sure you want to ensure your vehicle is in good hands and being taken care of during the shipping process. That’s why it’s imperative your classic car arrives at its destination in the same shape it was when it left your showroom. Therefore, it’s important to use a shipping company you know you can trust.
That’s where our new transportation module, Dealer Accelerate Dispatch (D.A.D.), comes to the rescue. D.A.D. is a free transportation job bidding request tool within Dealer Accelerate that is available to our 120+ specialty car dealer and classic car auction clients.
In the past, dealers and auctions had to do their own vetting of possible carriers and finding the best deals. With D.A.D., we have taken the guesswork out of transporting valuable cars. We have thoroughly vetted and invited only a select number of the most reputable national carriers with outstanding safety ratings, appropriate insurance coverage and experience in transporting collector cars to join the D.A.D. platform.
So, you can sleep easy at night knowing that one of the best and most qualified transportation companies in the classic car industry will be handling your vehicle and not some random guy with a pick-up truck and rusty trailer.
Whether you’re looking to ship one vehicle, a truckload or multiple truckloads, requesting transportation bids is simple. When you sell a car through Dealer Accelerate, a button will appear asking if you want to request a transportation bid. From there, you will have to fill out several fields pertaining to the job (e.g., location and date of pickup, location and date of delivery, how many cars, open or enclosed carriers).
Once you submit a request, the D.A.D.-approved carriers will receive a notification about the new request and be are invited to submit bids. When a carrier submits a new bid, you will be notified. You are able to review the bids at any time and select the one that best meets your needs.
It is understood that you may already have a regular carrier; however, there is going to be a time when they can’t do the job. That’s the perfect time to call on D.A.D.
It’s as simple as submitting a free request. And who knows … you may even find a new go-to carrier for your classic and collector cars.
