Whenever you’re in need of shipping services on a vehicle that you’re still paying for, don’t fret- because it is usually possible. Of course, dependent on whether the car is shipping overseas or domestically, the documentation you must present may differ. Nevertheless, getting the car where it needs to go is almost always a possibility.
If you’re still paying for the vehicle that you wish to transport, you’ll need a copy of lien and possibly more information provided by the lien holder. The lien holder can deny the right of transport if they so choose. Usually, as long as you’re in good standing with them and not behind in payments, they’ll agree to the transport.
Aside from the lien agreement and other relevant documentation from the lien holder, you’ll need proof that the vehicle is fully insured. All licensed transport companies will carry at least the minimal amount of insurance coverage but this is only during the shipping process of the vehicle. If the car is to ship to another country, the original title might also be required by Customs. An international auto transporter with experience will know how to deal with such affairs.
How a Transport Company Can Help…
When you hire a longstanding transport company, they’ll have professionals onboard that are familiar with the ins and outs of shipping cars and the documentation needed if the vehicle is not yet paid off. Once you explain the circumstances and the details of the transport and vehicle, they’ll inform you of all the documentation that is required to make a lawful transport.
It shouldn't be too difficult to assemble the necessary paperwork and evidence in the majority of cases. Certain lien holders, however, may object to the vehicle being shipped elsewhere. Transport firm options are limited in this situation. The lien holder may be more receptive to the proposal if the car is being exported owing to a job relocation due to promotion or other comparable conditions.
