All companies look alike to me! Wrong is my answer. Once again you will have to do your homework. There are basically two types of companies one that will turn your car over to complete strangers or companies that hire professional drivers.
The non-professional driver companies make money by charging the vehicle owner fees for finding you a driver. In essence, the drivers gets free transportation. The potential drivers must come up with a low cash deposit. This deposit is refunded when the drivers deliver the car in good shape. “It is expected you will want to do a little sightseeing along the way, and the system is expecting this.” (Braun) Complete strangers are in your car. They could be foreign nationals on vacation, a young family moving, or worse, drug dealers moving their products. To get this job basically you need to be 21, have a valid driver’s license and cash for the deposit. (If your car breaks down or the driver runs out of money for gas, for which they are responsible, you could be in a real tough situation.)
Other companies employ people that are being paid for moving your car directly from A to B. You need to look into how they get their drivers? How the companies operate. Do the drivers carry credit cards? What happens in the event of an accident? What happens if the driver is late delivering? Can I put personal belongings in my car? Can I talk with your customers?
These companies offer a higher level of service, most employ professional drivers. You will see a much higher satisfaction rate.
Do your homework and you will find that services vary by each company? If you Google professional drivers it will help in your search.
