Auto transport services we provide
- Open carrier services: Clients under a tight budget can get their cars shipped using open carriers. The carriers come with flatbed racks onto which the cars are loaded and secured using industrial strength skids. The cars are shipped as they are, which means they are slightly exposed to the external environment. They are however, completely safe from damage. Open carriers are also advantageous as they can accommodate different sizes of cars. Read on the other perks of using open carriers here.
- Enclosed carrier services: Clients that are concerned about the privacy and safety of their cars have the option of enclosed carriers. These come with an intermodal container that offer extra protection against external elements like pebbles, twigs and adverse weather conditions. Due to the high-cost of hiring an enclosed carrier, we advise clients to use these when shipping high-end cars, as they have more to gain from the privacy and extra protection.
How to prepare your car for shipping
- Remove all personal belongings: The Department of Transportation mandates that no carrier should transport any car with household items in it. Additionally, remove all aftermarket installations like DVD players, external speakers and GPS navigation systems to avoid loss or damage.
- Wash the car: Washing the car reveals more details of any pre-existing damages. This is important for purposes of filing a car hauler’s inspection report. The report is used to compare the car’s condition after shipping and identifying any damages that the carrier firm is liable for.
- Leave about a quarter-full tank of gas: Shipping a car with a full tank of gas is ill advised as the car weighs more. A weightier car means a higher shipping fee. A quarter-full tank of gas is sufficient to cover the loading and offloading during shipping. It is also enough to cover the distance to the nearest gas station for refill.
- Run a car maintenance check: A complete car maintenance check involves looking for any fluid leaks and thereafter filling the fluids to their recommended levels. Additionally, check the tire pressure and have the car battery charged if need be.
- Take photos: We advise clients to take clear photos of every side of the car. These act as your personal record of the car’s condition prior to shipping. You can compare these with the car hauler’s inspection report.
- Disable the car alarm: The car is completely safe onboard our carriers. Disable the car alarm to avoid any inconveniences and battery drain.
- Mind the keys: Have a spare set of car keys made for the driver. It’s safer to remain with a set of car keys in case those with the driver get misplaced.
