AmeriFreight's quote came in at a favorable number. The customer service was great. It was the winter. A lot of people weren’t going up North. So, there was a bit of problem to find me someone, but they did find me a carrier. And then the day before the carrier was supposed to come, they called me and said that the carrier, the truck through an axle, and he would not be able to get there. So she put the job out immediately again and had already secured me another vendor who would come that day to pick up the car. And he was in Austin, he was coming my way, had one extra slot on his truck. She was wonderful about immediately going out and remedying the situation, not leaving me hanging with no vendor and no truck.

They were very responsive to me. And they were very helpful. We ran up against a big problem, and it could have been a disaster, but they stepped right up and got somebody new for me. That was very good. And the driver that I got was great because he went and met my son in the parking lot of Walmart to drop the car off. And he was there when he said he would be there. They also said to make sure my E-ZPass was not in the car at the time because they don't want it to trigger. Things you have to know. You just send your car off and you don't realize what's going on once it gets on that truck.

It’s important that when you see the quote, to understand that's probably not what you would pay. Because that's the lower end of what they think is going to happen. It depends on if there are carriers available, and the carrier wants to take your job. So if there's no carrier and they have to entice somebody, then the price would go up. If you've got a lot of movement going to that area, or you've got trucks with room and they want the job, they might be a bit more competitive on the price. You're going to end up paying a bit more. Knowing that, you don't get dazzled by a low price. You keep in mind that you want to check reviews, and you would want to ask anybody you know who might have used somebody. Because those are the things that are important. You want to make sure the car is safe when it goes, that the driver has insurance, that your car is appropriately handled.

    I listed at least six companies and AmeriFreight seemed to be the most reliable amongst the others when I was looking at the reviews. They were also very responsive and helpful to all my questions. The lady, who was my customer rep, was very honest and straightforward in terms of what can I expect, and I was 100%, very comfortable. She was helpful helping with the shipment of the cargo. She wasn't hiding any costs and she explained to me the whole process. She mentioned to me at the beginning that if the transportation companies are increasing the price then I may need to wait or the prices may go up. She told me that this is based on the current market price, which can go up or even down. In the end, there was a very minimal difference between the quote I got and the price.

    The driver called and said to me when I should expect him to arrive to the delivery location. Once he arrived, he called me again that he's here, and I could go pick up the car. He unloaded the car and asked me to sign the paperwork. The Cadillac Escalade was in a very poor condition, but it wasn't transportation company's fault. Unfortunately, the dealership in Colorado Springs left a huge mess in the car. From transportation company's perspective though, they did a good job. There were no additional scratches or dents on the car. I was pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend AmeriFreight for a friend if they want reliable service.

    Original review: April 17, 2021

    I was very hooked on the fact that using AmeriFreight was so much cheaper than all of the other places I have looked online. Then when I spoke to AmeriFreight about details, they said, “Well, we hope we can get that price.” At first I was like, “Oh **, is this a scam?” But because we had plenty of time and we were under no pressure to be able to ship our cars, we were able to get that inexpensive price. And it happened within a few days. It was great. There was a big problem with the delivery of the car in that the driver who had transported the car had damaged it extensively. However, AmeriFreight was very responsive, as was the driver. The driver took care of it completely. AmeriFreight was responsive in checking in the entire way. And they had excellent customer service.

    They're a coordination service. They don't have their own trucks. So they look for all of these drivers who have little spots available on their rigs. So if you can be patient, you can wait for the right rate to come along that matches the price that you're looking for that they initially quote you. And there was enough respect between the driver and AmeriFreight, that the driver wanted to make sure that they were doing right by me in order to maintain the relationship with AmeriFreight, which also says to me that there's a positive relationship going on between the umbrella organization and the contracted drivers.

    The driver and his professionalism were outstanding. The vehicle arrived on time without any problems. My only problem is with AmeriFreight’s marketing model. They initially quoted me a target cost of $750. Two days prior to the day I had to move my vehicle, they said they had a single bid of $1400. With no place to turn, I pretty much had to accept the bid. I checked several other brokers when I was first looking into shipping. In hindsight, their offers were much more realistic to the final price I paid than what AmeriFreight gave me. The agent told me that unlike other brokers, they don’t lock customers into a price at booking so customers are able to turn down a bid if it doesn’t meet their expectations. Had I known that the quoted cost was going to be so different from the actual, I would have gone with a different broker earlier on in the process. I’m still not happy about being put over a barrel so late in the game.

    I looked at three transport companies online as we had two cars that we needed to ship out. I chose AmeriFreight because they got back to me fastest. The transport was under 3,000 miles, from California to Georgia. It was a good haul. The guy that picked our cars up was really nice. We had to get an Uber from the pick-up spot to go back to our house and the guy let me use his Uber in his phone because I was having trouble with the app on my phone. He was great. My son then picked the cars up on this end in Georgia. He overslept and there was a little issue. He called the driver and begged the guy to stay where he was. My son and a couple of his friends drive out and picked up the two cars. The driver was pretty cool about that.

    The cars were picked up on the day they were promised to be picked up and everything was delivered on the time. The cost ended up being a lot more than we thought but it wasn't too much of a surprise. They wanted to take the cars a week earlier than we wanted and it would have been cheaper then. But we ended up having the cars taken during the Christmas week and we were told that's one of the most expensive weeks. Overall, AmeriFreight was great and I would recommend them. We have friends moving out to this area in December and they have two cars so we might use them again.

    I shipped my car from Santa Barbara to Charlottesville. The price increased by $700 between the initial quote and the final charge. The communication from AmeriFreight was great, but the communication with the company that did the shipping (TA Transportation) was abysmal -- they didn't tell me when they picked my car up and they told me the day before dropping it off that I would have to meet them outside of town because they only just realized they couldn't actually deliver my car to the agreed-upon address. No complaints about Amerifreight, but if I had to transport my car again, I would much rather drive.

    AmeriFreight did a great job coordinating transport of our car from OR to OK and the return. I researched many companies prior to the first transport. Everything worked so well, I didn’t hesitate to use them for the return transport. I would definitely use them again if the need arose!

    From the time I made the first call, customer service agent was responsive and assisted in making sure the car pickup met our needs. The carrier arrived earlier than planned, but that was okay. We needed to make sure the car was shipped before bringing my daughter back home from college.

    My AmeriFreight agent was fabulous - friendly and professional. AmeriFreight contracts haulers (haulers bid on the trip and you can choose) and handles any issues one may have with the haulers in an expedited and professional manner. Your agent is in contact with you regularly and you can text/call your agent any time. Although the expense was almost double of what was quoted, I was really happy with the services AmeriFreight provided.
