How To Safely Ship A Car

How To Safely Ship A 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.

Take a once-over of your car

Inspect your vehicle for damage such as dents, scratches, or any other 'off' condition. It is a good idea that you wash your vehicle before shipping it. This will allow you to see any minor damage. Photograph any dents or other damage. Keep these photos for future reference. Sometimes scratches and dents may occur while transporting your vehicle. Photos taken during pre-shipping will help you fill out the Bill of Lading accurately if damage occurs to your vehicle.

What about valuable items?

It is important to take every precaution to reduce your car's chance of being injured before it travels. Before shipping your car off, fold your side mirrors in and place your antennae inside the trunk.

Perform a Maintenance Check

If you are transporting an inoperable car, make sure to inform your transport company before you drop it off. It is important to make sure your vehicle is in good working order before you hand it over. Make sure to check your vehicle's mileage, top off all fluids, and ensure that the battery is fully charged.
