Shipping a Car to Colchester
Shipping a car can be simplified by making sure your vehicle is ready for transport. Use these tips from A-1 Auto Transport to get your car fully prepared for transport:
- Cars are required to be inspected before they are loaded onto the carrier as well as when they are delivered. Your car should be washed so the driver can clearly see all areas of the surface of the vehicle. This is important as the inspection will be noted on the Bill of Lading for insurance purposes.
- Plan to be with the car at pickup and delivery so you can sign the Bill of Lading and also so you can make sure the paperwork is correct.
- Remove anything personal including paperwork from inside the car.
- Have an extra key made as per law the driver must have a key to the ignition as well as the doors and trunk.
- Disarm the car security system. An alarm setting off during transport can startle the driver and could cause an accident.
- Have the tires, brakes, and battery checked to make sure they are in good condition.
- Drive the car until the gas is down to around a quarter tank. Less fuel in the tank means the car will weigh less and that can help keep the cost of shipping down.
- Gather all of the transport paperwork and make sure you keep it in a safe place.
- Take time/date stamped pictures of the car on the day it is picked up. You will need to keep the pictures until the car is delivered.
- Exchange contact information with the driver in case there is an emergency.
