Using Alexandria Vehicle Transport Services
- Don’t Fill Up - When you’re having a vehicle shipped, it’s typically asked that you have no more than 1/4 tank of gas before it’s picked up for delivery. (Some companies may request as little as 1/8 tank). With multiple vehicles sometimes being moved at the same time, keeping the gas level low keeps the weight of the load down and lowers the overall cost.
- Empty Vehicle - Much like keeping the gas levels low, an empty vehicle reduces the weight and most auto carriers will require that the vehicle be emptied before pick up for delivery. This is also for the safety of the vehicle since things can shift during hauling. External and removable components should also be taken off before transport.
- Research Companies - There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a company to move your car, truck or motorcycle. It’s important to take your time, get estimates from several companies and research them to make sure they have a good history and safety record. The best way to research an auto shipping company is with its MC# or USDOT#, which can be used to find information about history and performance record.
