Is Anyone Going To Drive My Car Through The Shipping Process
People are concerned about who will drive their vehicle after it has been shipped to an auto transport company. It is understandable that vehicles are often our most valuable assets. It is likely that your vehicle will be driven by someone at some point in the shipping process. However, it shouldn't take too long.
Many transport companies offer customers the option to drop off their vehicles at a drop-off point before shipment. A worker might need to drive your vehicle from the storage area to the carrier once the vehicle has been loaded. This is usually not far away. The driver of the auto carrier will then have to load your vehicle onto the truck. The vehicle will be on the truck for the duration of the transport. Once it is unloaded, the driver will need to take it off the truck. Your car may be left at the same location, or driven to a storage facility where it will stay until it is picked up by the transport company. Your vehicle shouldn't be driven beyond these short distances during transport. The driver of the transport vehicle will ask you to hand your keys over to them so that they can load your vehicle and unload it from the carrier.
Your car will still be driven during shipping, but the distance should not exceed 10 miles. The vehicle's mileage should be noted at drop-off. A bill of lading should also be provided by the transport company. This will include the mileage when it was dropped off. To check for discrepancies, you should compare the mileage at drop-off to the current mileage. While most auto transport companies offer insurance for your vehicle while it is being shipped to you, make sure to check if the coverage includes driving it to and fro the carrier. You can check with your insurance company to make sure your vehicle is covered if they don't cover it. Additional insurance may be required in certain cases. Move Car offers additional coverage and a 'Damage-Free Guarantee.
