National Car Transport Inc. (NCT) offers door-to-door car shipping and delivery services to locations around the country. The company is based in Miami and has several offices throughout South Florida. In addition to passenger cars, National Car Transport ships motorcycles, vans, sports utility vehicles, boats and recreational vehicles. The company also offers point-to-point transportation of antique vehicles, classic cars and non-operational vehicles.
National Car Transport was established in 1998, and provides auto transportation services to individual consumers, corporate clients, car dealerships and military personnel. A substantial portion of the company’s business comes from repeat customers who move to Florida for the winter from the Northeast. The company ships vehicles throughout the continental United States, Hawaii and Alaska. It also offers port pickup and delivery services for customers who want to ship a car overseas, or bring one into the United States from an overseas location. Many of company’s drivers have port permits and Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWIT cards) that allow them to pick up or deliver cars at US ports.
National Car Transport uses both open car carriers and climate-controlled enclosed trucks to haul consumer vehicles. Unless a customer specifically asks for an enclosed carrier, National Car will ship their vehicle in an open carrier. The company offers an expedited service, called the 911 service, under which it guarantees that a customer’s car will be picked up within 24 to 48 hours of the order being placed. Not surprisingly, they charge between $150 and $200 extra for the expedited service.
Like most car carriers these days, NCT allows customers to obtain free quotes online. However, they have to call its toll-free number to actually make transportation arrangements. The company accepts all major credit cards for the initial deposit, but only accept cash or a cashier’s check upon delivery of the vehicle. NCT does not guarantee its shipping times, but claims it is able to ship a car from coast to coast in 10 days or less, and over shorter distances in under five days.
The company is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau of Miami, and currently enjoys an A+ ranking with the Bureau. National Car Transport is a full service transportation provider, which means that, in addition to car shipping, it offers a range of related logistics services. For example, it arranges international shipping of cars, trucks, project cargo and machinery. National Car Transport Inc. helps customers take care of customs forms, customs inspections, permits and insurance-related issues as well.
