Here Are The Three Tips For Shipping A Kit Car

Do you have questions about how to properly prepare your car for shipping? This quick and easy guide will help you to prepare your car for shipping.

Step 1 - Choose the Right Type Of Container

First, a kit car can be a valuable commodity. Therefore, it is important to choose the right level of protection. An open container can cause scratches and dents to your car while it is being transported. Closed carriers are more expensive but they can be used for transport. This will give you peace of mind knowing that your kit car arrives at its destination looking the same as when it was dropped off. Take photos of your vehicle. If there is damage to your vehicle, these photos will give you proof.

Step 2 - Remove any loose parts and valuable items

You must do everything you can to reduce your car's chance of being injured before it travels, no matter how long or short the journey. Before shipping your car off, fold your side mirrors in and place your antennae inside the trunk. This will make it easier to transport your vehicle. Clean vehicles will ensure that there is no visible damage to the vehicle before it is picked up. You can also:

  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated.
  • Check the fluids inside the car
  • Check that the battery is fully charged before you leave.

Kit cars are unlikely to encounter any problems, but it is important to follow protocol before the vehicle is picked up.

Step 3 - Make sure the Shipping Company Is Bonded and Insured

We are paid a portion of your payment to confirm that the carrier you have been placed on is insured and up-to-date. This coverage is provided at no additional cost to customers and is their primary insurance. Be wary of companies that promise a low price, as they may be too good to be true. This could be because they don't provide insurance, and they can offer low transportation costs.
