Don’t always go with the lowest quote!

While we all want to save money whenever possible, sometimes the lowest quote may not be the best value. If you get a quote significantly lower than the rest, think before you act: You don’t expect great things from a cheap piece of merchandise, right? If you buy something at a dollar store, are you surprised when it craps out quickly? The old adage “you get what you pay for,” applies in life and especially in the vehicle hauling business.
