Diesel Auto Express is 20% more expensive than the average car shipping company. A trip that costs $800 with another company will set you back about $960 with Diesel.
If that seems confusing, we understand. Diesel Auto Express claims its customers save up to 30% over other companies. While it doesn’t provide any data to back up its claims, there are two reasons to think you may be able to get a lower price:
- A bidding process determines prices. Car shipping companies give you a quote and then ask drivers to bid on it. If they give you a low price, but no one accepts the job, they have to raise the price—meaning your initial quote isn’t valid. It’s possible Diesel Auto Express initially has higher rates, but that they hold more steady throughout the bidding.
- Customers like the company. Diesel Auto Express gets near-perfect scores in customer reviews. It’s unlikely hundreds of customers would give the company such high ratings if the costs were too high.
Of course, we can’t say for sure that you’ll save with Diesel Auto Express over another car shipper, as our research shows that the company is generally on the pricey side. That’s why it’s important to shop around and get at least three quotes.
Beyoncé has a Jaguar named Honeybee. The Obamas refer to their Ford Escape as the Beast. Whether your vehicle has a better name (or no name at all), your car is like your baby. You have a lot invested, and it can feel a bit nerve-racking to watch a truck driver take it away.
Diesel Auto Express eases your anxiety by offering no-charge GPS tracking. You can call the company up anytime, and it will tell you exactly where your baby is.
Car shipping companies are often big brokerages with lots of employees. If you call three times, chances are you’ll talk to three different people. It can be frustrating to feel like you’re starting over each time.
(We know. We make a lot of mystery shopping calls.)
Not with these folks. Diesel Auto Express is family-owned and prides itself on giving you a single point of contact. Whoever you work with at the beginning is the same person who will walk you through the entire process.
It’s likely one reason the average customer gives the company a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars.
