Why Addresses Matter- Addresses inform us where to ship. And while that may sound obvious, it isn’t. Addresses direct the courier. But sometimes there isn’t one! Who knows? This is not an excuse. We need the pick-up and drop-off.

Did You Buy It Cheap?
Auto sales are big. Popularized by online auto shopping and the COVID-19 epidemic. Buying a car online is an excellent way to save money on a new automobile or a project car. And auctions are a great way to save even more.
But an auction car must be sent. Don’t forget to give your shipper all necessary vehicle information. Buyers must advise us of the vehicle’s condition. You have the least say in this, but we need to know everything. Is it? Is there anybody damage that prevents driving? Are the tires inflated enough?
Just a few things to know. With auctions, you’re almost buying blind. But please send us any transaction details you have. We’ll also need buyer and lot numbers. Carriers can’t pick up. All auctions use the same lot number and winning bid number. Nothing is released to a carrier without the proper lot and buyer numbers. So no one else can send your automobile!
