Shipping insurance For Autos
Auto insurance is as important as home insurance. Auto insurance is essential for protection plans that cover us against thefts, accidents, and other damages. You should also have all-inclusive auto insurance when shipping your car. Before you ship your car, there are many things that you need to know about auto insurance.
Auto insurance proof
Car shipping companies must have valid auto insurance certificates. This is required by law. When you book, it is possible to request proof of insurance. It is a good idea at this point to ask questions about the company's auto coverage. It is important to inquire if your entire vehicle is covered, or only the damage sustained during transportation.
Writing is proof
Most likely, you will be calling to book your car shipping details. You are likely to be writing down information the car company shares with you. But those are your words. It is important that you ask the company to record any discussions and agreements that are not part of their regular contract.
Double-check with your auto insurer
More protection is better! Some insurance companies will cover your vehicle while it is being moved depending on what personal policy you have. Before shipping your car, it is a good idea for you to contact your auto insurance company. It is important to find out if your policy covers your vehicle while it is being shipped, and/or in another country.
All personal items should be removed
Your car may be covered by your auto insurance company and most likely by your car shipping company. However, personal items are not covered. You should empty your car completely of all personal items. You should get rid of all electronics, loose change and CDs or cassettes. Also, you need to remove any important paperwork. If in doubt, take it out.
