Common Mistakes made by the Shipping Customer.
- Not looking into the history of the shipping company before hiring them for services. Researching the companies that are local to you is important. They should also have the proper licensing and certificates to prove their legitimacy as an auto transporter.
- Not remembering to ask about the insurance coverage provided. Although it is rare that insurance is ever needed during a transport due to the security of the international transport company and their staff, it’s important that the company carries it anyway. This is their way of guaranteeing their services and it is obligatory for all trustworthy transporters to have insurance policies.
- Not preparing the automobile as asked by the transporters. The prep work is all in the best interest of the vehicle and those handling it during the shipping process. All risks are lessened when the car is prepared accordingly.
- Not presenting the documents required. You must have everything requested by the transporter including a license, insurance and the vehicle’s specifications and original title.
- Paying for the shipping services before the transport concludes. Never pay out any money before the transport has begun. Most reputable transporters won’t ask for anything upfront.
