ShipCarsNow Launches New Mobile App for Auto Transport
Free ShipCarsNow Mobile App for Smartphones
Omaha, Neb., June 28, 2011 ShipCarsNow has developed the industry's first mobile application, ShipCarsNow Mobile, that gives auto dealers and remarketers a fast and easy way to get multimodal auto transport quotes from any smartphone. One of the few auto transport companies to offer flexible options of truck and rail service, ShipCarsNow's mobile app provides shippers the ability to make quick, informed purchase decisions whenever and wherever they buy wholesale inventory.
ShipCarsNow Mobile is available free of charge for iPhone and AndroidTM smartphones, and coming soon to Blackberry® devices.
"The new ShipCarsNow mobile app demonstrates our continued dedication to making auto transport easy for auto traders," said Roland Fortner, ShipCarsNow president. "It is a great complement to our online services and offers auto traders mobile access to instant auto shipping quotes while they're bidding on cars at auction."
When sourcing inventory, the ability to quickly identify shipping costs during the purchasing process is critical to maintaining healthy profit margins. ShipCarsNow's mobile application gives car dealers and remarketers the auto transport information to help them make quick, informed decisions.
In addition to instant price quotes, the ShipCarsNow mobile app provides users a link to register with ShipCarsNow.com for lower, preferred customer rates and to access auto transport tips and industry news. Auto dealers and remarketers can use the app to login to ShipCarsNow.com to get quotes, track shipments, and quickly access ShipCarsNow sales representatives.
