When we review auto shipping companies, we look at more than 500 data points in key areas such as reputation, cost, services, and customer experience. The following sections provide further context for these categories and how we evaluated Easy Auto Ship with respect to each.
We consider Better Business Bureau (BBB) accreditation and rating, state availability, and how many years a company has been in business when we rate its reputation. Easy Auto Ship was founded in 2013, is available in all 50 states, and offers international shipping. With the BBB, Easy Auto Ship carries an A+ rating and accreditation. Overall, we give the company 4.6 out of 5.0 stars for industry reputation.
Cost is an area in which Easy Auto Ship trails behind many of its competitors. We give the company a 4.0 out of 5.0-star rating for cost, which places it well behind our other top-ranked providers. To arrive at this rating, our team sourced quotes for shipping an operable 2018 Toyota RAV4 along several popular routes.
While the estimated rates we received were generally higher than other companies, it’s important to note that Easy Auto Ship offers discounts for active military, for paying in cash, and for shipping multiple vehicles. As an example, paying in cash would bring each of the quotes we received down by $125.
We give Easy Auto Ship a strong 4.9 out of 5.0 stars for its shipping services. Along with all 50 states, the company offers vehicle shipping to international destinations. Easy Auto Ship offers door-to-door shipping, in which your car is picked up from and dropped off as close to a home address as possible, and the cheaper terminal-to-terminal option, with pickup and dropoff at centralized locations.
Easy Auto Ship provides both open and enclosed shipping options. With open shipping, your car is transported in an open carrier. Since an open auto transport trailer can fit more vehicles, this is the cheapest way to go. However, your car will be exposed to the elements and minor damage from road debris may occur. An enclosed trailer is more expensive, but your car will be protected from road debris and the elements. This is the best option if you have a luxury car or a historic vehicle.
Easy Auto Ship is also known for quick pickups, earning the provider the designation of Best for a Quick Pickup. Their typical time of one to five days comes in at the low end of the industry average.
An easy-to-use online quote tool and solid customer reviews across the web contribute to our 4.4-star rating for Easy Auto Ship in the category of customer experience. Specifically, our team noted that each quote we collected took less than a minute. The company has a healthy 4.6 out of 5.0-star rating from over 700 reviews on the BBB website, along with the same star rating from more than 3,000 Google reviews.
