  1. Shipping Method That Will Help Protect Your Car Against Bad Weather
  2. Insurance Coverage And Other Ways A Transport Company May Protect Your Car
Car Transportation Insurance Coverage

If you plan on shipping a car in California it’s in your best interest to check the weather report for the time you wish to begin your vehicle’s transport. The climate in California varies greatly depending on the region you’re in. You may experience everything from subpolar climate to record high heat to more moderate temperatures along the coast. If the weather is too severe, it could affect the car’s transport. However, experienced transport companies have ways to avoid and protect the vehicle from possible harm that may be caused by the weather.

Shipping Method That Will Help Protect Your Car against Bad Weather

Although open air shipping is the most common method of transport in more temperate regions, there is another type of shipping that offer more protection against the weather. This might be favorable to you if the weather isn’t looking so good. This transport method may cost a little more than open air transport but it is cost effective and will provide a lot more safety against outside elements.

Enclosed transport safeguards the vehicle behind strong metal walls. There are two forms of enclosed transport, but the more popular option includes shipping the car inside a large shipping container. Other belongings can ship with the car when this is the transport method of choice. Your possessions can fill the car as well as the remaining space in the freight container.

Another form of enclosed car shipping includes crated transport. This is more frequently chosen among those with antique, classic cars or even smaller vehicles. Nonetheless, the smaller container is usually made of wood and much smaller than that of a shipping container. It provides a lot more security since the crate is then placed within a shipping container.

Insurance Coverage and Other Ways a Transport Company May Protect Your Car

A professional and longstanding car transportation company will provide insurance coverage during the delivery process. This coverage should protect the entire value of the car and any possessions you may ship with it should you choose enclosed transport methods. Weather related damage is included and your car will be repaired or cared for through the insurance company if a file is made due to this reason.

Strategic planning and Wi-Fi enabled tools will help the transport company avoid the bad weather. For example, the tools used will inform them of weather, traffic and road conditions. This will also give them help planning alternative routes if necessary.

★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
