Many people use or own golf carts but don’t golf. It’s true: the golf cart manufacturing industry grew by 3.1 percent in 2018, reaching revenue of $1 billion. And not all those carts were sold to golfers. Not by a long shot: they were sold to hotels, resorts (for in-resort transportation), colleges/universities, estate owners and managers, and – perhaps especially to the great benefit of those who live there – in active retirement living communities.
Buyer Beware! We see this advice pretty much everywhere, but we don’t always heed it. Yet it’s especially important to be very careful when it comes to choosing a shipping company to transport your car or other vehicles: scams in the auto transport industry are, unfortunately, plentiful. Especially in our current age of Internet sales and services.
You’re moving. A long way. Several hundred miles away. And so you either don’t want to or don’t have the time to drive your car to your new home yourself. Time to find a reliable auto transport company! But if you Google “reliable auto transport company” up will pop 52.9 million results (we checked).
Moving is expensive, especially if working with a moving company (although making a move yourself is not inexpensive either).
The same goes for shipping an automobile or other vehicle: chances are good it’s going to cost you a few hundred dollars. The average cross-country shipment for a four-door sedan can run from $700-$1200 in an open carrier; possibly as much as $2000 if you ship it in an enclosed carrier.
