Shipping your car for the first time can
be a long and frustrating process. Picking a company that
you can trust can take time, but when you find it, you will find
out that car shipping can be an easy and hassle free process. When
the car transporter comes to pick up your vehicle there is a few
things that you should consider.
Most of our clients ship their
vehicles because they are moving to a new home in a
different state. Often, they pack personal belongings in their car
in order to make the moving process easier. What they do not know
is that the law prohibits people from leaving their personal
belongings in a car. Car haulers are not
allowed to transport cars with personal items
inside. Another important factor that you should consider is that
while your car is in the possession of a car transportation company
it is insured, but the items left inside are not insured.
Washing your car before transporting it to a
different state is also not a good idea. When your vehicle
is put on an open car hauler it is not protected
from bad weather. If you are shipping your vehicle far away the
truck might pass through rain or snow and your vehicle will be
dirty again when it arrives. You can always wash it inside, but
washing the exterior of your vehicle when you are going to ship it
is often a waste of time and money.
When your vehicle is picked up it will
not be driven. The driver will put it on a car hauler and
it will not be taken off until it arrives at the delivery point.
You should not fill it up with gas. Car haulers have to follow
strict weight regulations, therefore, we ask our customers not to
fill up their gas tanks before trusting us with their vehicle. Five
gallons of gas is more than enough for drivers to place your
vehicle on a car hauler and then take it off.
Following these simple car shipping tips will save you
time and money. Car shipping can be extremely easy
if you find a company that you know you can trust.
