Important Duties Of Car Movers

Important Duties Of Car Movers

Many people believe that moving a vehicle from one point to another is the sole job of a car transportation company. Car movers do much more than that. Learn what your car movers are expected to do and what they can expect from customers.

Registration and License All auto movers must be licensed and registered at the U.S. Department of Transportation. This agency regulates the practice of auto transport and moving. To be eligible for a license and registration, movers must comply with all regulations and standards set forth by the DOT. This includes safety, business practices, and business operations. These requirements will ensure that auto movers offer high-quality services to customers.

Insurance
Insurance is required for all car drivers and movers. Cargo insurance and liability insurance are two of the most popular types of insurance you can expect. Cargo insurance protects cargo by restricting the number of vehicles a truck can transport. It covers minor damage such as scratches and dents that may occur during transport.

Liability insurance on the other side provides coverage for the contents of the carrier and covers any damages caused by driver error. The Department of Transportation requires certain types of insurance. Customers should inquire about their availability and what type of coverage the mover has.

Provide Information
Car movers must provide complete and clear information to customers about the limitations and benefits of their services, which vehicles they can transport, delivery times, costs, fees, and other charges. Customers will be able to choose the best service for them. Customers can make informed decisions when they have the right information. Also, there is less chance of misinformation resulting in misunderstandings.

Formal agreement
Contracts must cover all transactions with auto movers. It should contain important information like the type of service that the customer will use, the terms and conditions, and any fees or other services the customer might require.

Non-Moving Vehicles that Do Not Run
Some vehicles might not work properly or be unusable. The car movers must inform the owner about the condition of the car upon pickup. They also have to use any equipment necessary for loading the vehicle onto the carrier. Most cases will require additional charges for this service.
