Important Things To Consider When Preparing Your Car For Transport

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.

Inspect Your Vehicle for Damage

Check your vehicle from top-to-bottom for damage such as scratches, dents, or discoloration. It is a good idea that you wash your vehicle before shipping it. This will allow you to see any damage. Photograph any dents or other damage. Keep a record of any dents, scratches, etc. Sometimes, scratches and dents may occur while your vehicle is being transported. If this happens to your vehicle, you can take photos during the pre-shipping "prep" process to help you fill out the Bill of Lading. This is a report of inspection that you will need to sign when your vehicle is dropped off.

Removing 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.

Perform a Maintenance Check

You should inform your transport company if you are transporting an inoperable vehicle. 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.
