Tips to Prepare For Transport

When you’re making plans to have your car transported to Bradenton there are some things you need to do to prepare the car for transport. Most people choose open car shipping as it is typically the least expensive as well as the fastest way to have a car delivered. You may also choose enclosed shipping if you have a luxury, exotic or classic car that needs extra security during transport or if you need to ship other items with the car. To prepare for transport, use some of the following tips to ensure a safe and secure voyage for your car:

  • Cleanliness is important: Prior to having your car loaded onto a carrier for transport, either when moving locally in Bradenton, to Bradenton from another city or state or from Bradenton you should make sure the car has been cleaned inside and out. Your car will go through a damage inspection just before it is loaded, and ensuring cleanliness will make it easier to spot signs of damage if there is any. It will also help keep the car safe during transport. Items left inside a car during transport can be dangerous if they fly around. Not only to the interior or your car or the windows but to other cars loaded on the carrier as well as people that may be nearby if something dislodges and exits the window.
  • Damage protection: As you discuss the contract with the automobile transporter, you will want to check to see what amount of damage insurance coverage is available. Most often, insurance is included with shipping, whether local or long distance. If you have a classic, exotic or collectors car, you may want to ensure the total available will be enough to cover the car in case of an accident during transport.
  • Door to Door or Terminal: Most automobile transport is completed with convenient door to door transport. This means the car will be picked up at your home or business location, or at an agreed on location that will be best for you. If you will need to have the car placed into storage prior to the date of pick-up, you will need to make arrangements with the carrier to put the car in storage at a terminal and pick it up there instead of at your home or business. It is always best to be present when the car is picked up if at all possible so you can walk through the pre-delivery inspection with the driver.
  • Discounts: Many automobile transport and moving companies offer discounts to military, students and seniors. They may also offer seasonal transport discounts. If a discount is not offered, then you should ask if they have any available discounts that would help you save money on shipping.
