CHICAGO, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Montway Auto Transport, the leading car shipping company, announces their participation in the new published rates program on uShip.
At one point in time, if consumers wanted to receive a car shipping quote online, they had to offer up a plethora of personal information. A consumer would find a website, have to register with the given site and then enter personal information such as name, email address, mailing address and even their telephone number. Montway Auto Transport respects user privacy and has always utilized a car delivery quote calculator platform that gives a real-time quote without requiring the input of personal information.
"We want our customers to have a pleasant experience regardless of what step they are at in the process of shipping their car, thus Montway Auto Transport advises customers to not provide their personal information to any lead-generating websites. Most of the websites that provide quotes sell customers' personal data to third parties, compromising customer privacy. Established auto transport companies will never ask you for your personal information upfront," says Mike Mihaylov, President of Montway Auto Transport.
Lucky for the consumer, the requirement of personal data to receive a free car shipping quote is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Recently, transport aggregator site uShip has introduced a platform that requires no personal data upfront, and pulls price information from several car transport companies. Similar to aggregator sites in any industry, the consumer is delivered a list of car shipping prices with an up charge of approximately 15% service fees for the aggregator website.
There are many other lead generators that will still ask you for personal data upfront without giving you a quote. Montway strongly advises all consumers not to fall for this type of website and only limit their search for car transportation rates and quotes within actual trucking companies that have licenses posted on their website with direct links to USDOT and FMCSA for verification! Many aggregators / lead generators falsely represent themselves as trucking companies. If they don't have an active MC (Motor Carrier number) and USDOT number then they're not a trucking company.
Montway applauds the aggregator's effort to respect their clientele's privacy and actively participates in the published rates platform. Montway Auto Transport is number one ranked and rated in the world's largest transportation market place. Top in the industry and on the aggregator site, Montway is proud to be participating in the published rates platform.
An idea perfected by Montway Auto Transport in its industry, the free vehicle shipping quote without requiring personal data is a practice that is standard for any reliable auto transport company.
