Tips to Prepare for Transport to Athens, Texas

Use these tips to make sure transport will go smoothly for your vehicle:

Contacting Transporters

You need to contact more than one company in order to compare services. Once you have compared services it’s easier to choose a company that will best suit you and your vehicle. If you have a specialized car, luxury, classic or vintage vehicle the best way to ship will be inside of an enclosed carrier. Make sure the company you choose offers the right services for the transport that you and your vehicle require.

Getting the vehicle ready

  • Remove all personal items from inside the car.
  • Lower the fuel to ¼ tank.
  • Wash the exterior of the car.
  • Get a set of keys made for the carrier driver.
  • Remove all accessories from the exterior that are loose or that could be removed during transport.
  • Disarm any alarms or security devices on the vehicle.
  • Be prepared to pay more for oversized or inoperable vehicles.
  • Be physically present when the carrier picks the car up.
  • Take pre-shipping photos of the car. Be sure to have the time/date stamp on.
  • Complete the pre-shipping inspection with the driver.
  • Carefully read the Bill of Lading and only sign it if it is correct. Also be sure to get a copy before the driver leaves with the car.
