Services offered in Atwater
Enclosed shipping accords high-end vehicles and classics VIP treatment throughout the trip. The cars get protection from inclement weather, dust, and debris. Open-air shipping is the most popular transportation mode in America. It is a simple process that involves loading the vehicles onto an open truck by driving and securing them for the trip. Simplicity helps to cut down the cost to ship, which drops even further on trailers with enough room for more cars. You can have the vehicle picked up or delivered to your residence or another convenient point. Our representatives will run all the chores as you move along to other important activities of your life. Convenient terminal shipping depends on finding the nearest transportation depot when shipping cars to or from Atwater. We will assign two hubs, one as the drop-off and the other one as the pick-up point. The first decision that we can help you make when sending your car overseas is choosing whether to ship by air or on water. Shipping by plane is a very expensive affair that we only recommend for certain special reasons. Sea transport can take different approaches depending on your needs.
- The roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) is a low-budget solution that uses multiple parking decks on large vessels to move hundreds of vehicles at once. Transporters load and unload the cars by rolling (driving) them on or off the ship.
- A shipping container increases vehicle safety as it moves along the sea. It has airtight and watertight properties that help to protect the car from potential damage. You can make some savings on the shipping when you choose to use a shared container. You might want to consider an exclusive option if you have to bring along personal and household belongings.

How to prepare your car for shipping
Aftermarket DVD players, GPS, and stereo systems count as personal items, which you should remove from the vehicle before shipping. Keeping them exposes you to several risks including damage or loss. The insurance policy does not give protection for these items. A clean vehicle always looks neat and attractive. It also makes it easier to inspect the car by getting rid of the dirt and dust hiding some of the cosmetic damage. Dated photographs come in handy as extra evidence when you need to lodge a claim against the transport company. Run down the gas so that you can drop the load on your vehicle. The FMCSA places weight restrictions on different carriers. The transporters respond by offering weight-based shipping rates. You can leave it at about 1/4 and keep a gallon ready for when you get the delivery. Prepare for a safe loading and unloading process by protecting the loose parts on the exterior. Take out the detachable ones and use extra padding on the non-removable items. Fold back the side-view mirrors and retract the antenna. Send the car to the mechanic to have the fluid leaks and mechanical problems fixed. You should also keep the battery fully charged, the fluids topped off, and the tires well inflated. You don't want to receive an inoperable vehicle at the other end. It also eases the handling process, which can lower the cost to ship.
