What You Need To Know About Car Transporters

What You Need To Know About Car Transporters

It is not something that most people do every day. Many of our customers are new shippers with no prior experience in hiring car transporters. This can cause people to be hesitant, if not even anxious about the whole process. We want you to feel confident about your car transporter and are happy to answer any questions you might have.

The most common question auto shippers ask is Will the car transporter damage or injure my vehicle?

This is not to be taken lightly, but if shipping a car by open carrier caused damage to cars, no one would do it. The industry would cease to exist.

Many cars are transported by door-to-door carriers over long distances. They arrive at their destination in excellent condition.

Accidents do occasionally happen, but they are part of life. If an accident should occur, the insurance of the car transporter will cover it.

Move Car offers an insurance guarantee - we're the only broker that does this. (No, this guarantee doesn't prevent accidents, but it ensures that you are protected.

Another question many shippers are asking is "Can you leave personal items in your vehicle?"

Although we would love to say so, the truth is that it's not something that we recommend. Car transporters are not furniture movers, they are simply car transporters. Car transporters are only licensed and insured to transport vehicles. Personal items cannot be transported by them.

We are unable to provide any protection if one of your belongings is lost or damaged during transit. Your car transporter may have weight restrictions. The shipping contract will be priced based on the vehicle's weight.

Although your driver might not notice a small or bulky item, they may not be able accommodate heavy and valuable cargo. Your driver will make the final decision. However, we cannot include any items in your contract. Anything left in your vehicle while it is in transit is at your risk.
