- Vehicle cleanliness. Make sure none of your personal items are left in the car by checking every part of the vehicle and removing objects that will not be allowed during shipping.
- Make a list. It is advisable to thoroughly check the interior and exterior of your car for any signs of damage and note them down. Also, ensure that the Bill of Lading has a similar list outlined on it to reduce confusion at the final destination.

Services we offer you
Our vehicles transportation services are ideal for folks shipping cars to or from Ashville and other parts of Alabama. Some of the services we offer are:
- SUV shipping: Are you planning to ship your SUV to any of the fifty states? You are in luck! We have been moving SUVs nationwide for twenty years plus and have become experts in the area. Our truck drivers are well trained in SUV shipping and will get your car to the final destination in one piece. When shipping more than one sports utility vehicle, we often use open trailers that can accommodate several cars at one go. Alternatively, we can use covered transportation for clients that want their SUVs shipped in a more secure manner.
- Enclosed vehicle shipping: Covered transport trailers are popular among vehicle owners that want their cars moved under extra protection. Most of the cars we ship this way include luxury cars, classic vehicles and high-end vehicles among others. The trailers that are covered on every side keep the car from getting damaged while in transit. Your vehicle is also protected from prying eyes that may be planning to steal it or cause damage. When shipping by sea within the US or abroad, we recommend container shipping for vehicles or crated transport for motorcycles that need to be transported using added protection.
- Open Carrier: An open carrier is the economical way to have a car shipped to or from Ashville and is usually the quickest way to ship via the interstate. Open carriers are built as single level and double level and can carry anywhere from one to ten cars at one time. While this is predominantly the way that most vehicles are transported, it can take a little longer to ship with open transport than with enclosed vehicle shipping since there may be more cars lined up for delivery ahead of your car on the truck.
Other Modes of Transport
Train: Shipping cars by train has long been a low cost means of moving cars from one place to another and you can choose from open (on a flat car) or enclosed (in an enclosed train car) to ship the car. If you prefer train, it is a good idea to call at least one to two months in advance to secure a spot on the train. Manufacturers and dealerships often book train space for large fleet shipments, and it is not always easy to find a place for one vehicle when others ship in bulk.
Plane: Air freight allows you to not only ship the vehicle fast, but you can also package personal items and ship them along at the same time. Shipping in a plane is the fastest way to move a car from one state to another (or country to country) but beware, it is also the most expensive and is usually reserved only for extremely high-end luxury cars and other very expensive vehicles.
