Before your first Auto Transport experience, there are tips that can make your experience easier. The successful navigation of these points will ensure each a safe and stress free Car Shipping experience.
Vehicle Shipping are not supposed to allow personal items in the trunk during transport.
Be sure to inspect your car thoroughly with the Car Moving driver before you hand over possession of your car. Be sure to note all dents, dings, scratches and rips to the interior and exterior. If this step does not occur, the Auto Shipping company is not liable for the damages that occur during transport. You will also conduct a similar inspection upon delivery.
Keep insurance during Carriers; it is better to be safe than sorry. After all, most damage that can happen during Auto Transport conditions is not covered by the Car Shipping carriers insurance.
If you are shipping a classic, custom, rare, exotic, or otherwise expensive vehicle, considering enclosed Car Shipping may be worth looking into.
Have your vehicle serviced and make sure the gas tank is at or below 1/4 tank prior to Vehicle Shipping.
If your car does not run or has had modifications that impact the sized and standard dimensions of your car, let the Car Moving company know. This can impact the cost to ship your car because it may take up more room in the Auto Shipping truck.
