Multi-car trailers make it affordable for many shippers by allowing more vehicles to travel in one trip. Our focus for high-end vehicles is to make sure that they travel discreetly, safely, and securely from start to finish. We have specially designed trailers that keep the cars protected from external risks such as road debris and inclement weather. Terminal shipping involves pooling together the vehicle bound to the same destination and delivering them to the nearest transportation hub. The transport company makes savings on the costs. Most terminal points sit in large metropolitan areas, which experience a lot of activity with different trucks moving in and out of the facility.

Preparing a car for shipping
It is worthwhile to run your vehicle through some important preparation steps as it helps to cut down on some of the costs and risks involved during transportation. Wash the vehicle and prepare a written record of the chips, dents, scratches, and paint blemishes. Use a camera to take dated photographs of all angles and close-ups o the damaged parts. Share the record with your transporter and make sure that they acknowledge it. Do not pack any personal items inside the car. Detachable CD players and radio faceplates, aftermarket DVD players, stereo systems, LCDs and GPS should not form part of the cargo. Remove them so that you can keep them safe from potential theft or damage. Toll tags and parking passes left in the car could get repeatedly charged along the way. Keep them deactivated or remove them since they could become a potential target for thieves. The car will go through some minimal driving so try t keep it in good shape. The following steps will help you to keep it in order:
- Use a fully charged battery and well-inflated
- Top-off all the fluids in the vehicle.
- Run down the gas tank to a quarter-full. It will help to save weight, which could lead to a lower bill.
Keep an eye out for fluid leaks and mechanical problems. If you can’t have them fixed, make sure that you note everything down for the truck driver.
