Auto transport services we provide
- Enclosed carrier services: Enclosed carriers guarantee total safety of your car. An intermodal container houses the car during shipping, providing protection against external elements like low hanging tree branches, small rocks from the road and adverse weather condition. The container also provides privacy against prying eyes, which makes it the recommended option for clients that wish to ship high-end cars like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti, Aston Martin, Range Rover, Mercedes and Maybach.
- Open carrier services: Open carriers are long hauls with the capacity to accommodate cars of any size. They come with flatbed racks, onto which cars are secured before being shipped. There is no enveloping structure covering the cars, which leaves them slightly exposed to the external environment. The cars are however, completely safe from damage as the drivers are instructed not to transport any car during adverse weather like hail and tornadoes. Clients however, have the option of throwing shrink wrapping over the car to keep dirt and rain off. Open carriers are cheaper to use compared to enclosed carriers, and they allow the driver to randomly check the cars during transportation.
Types of cars we ship
We transport inoperable cars, salvaged cars, high-end cars, electric & hybrid cars, alternative fuel cars, motorcycles, SUVs, ATVs, sedans, vans, RVs & motorhomes, heavy equipment and trucks of all sizes.
How to prepare your car for shipping
- Take out all personal items: Ensure you remove all personal belongings from the car, including any clothes, electronics, appliances, accessories and general shopping items. Additionally, remove all aftermarket installations like external speakers, DVD players and GPS navigation systems. Such items are not covered under the in-transit insurance policy.
- Wash the car: Every car being shipped is subjected to a compulsory examination by the driver shipping it. A car hauler inspection report is then drafted, which contains details of the cars condition before shipping, such as any pre-existing damage.
- Mind the gas: Any car being shipped is not subjected to gas-demanding movements. The car therefore only requires enough gas to cover the loading and offloading. A quarter-full tank of gas shall suffice.
- Disable the car alarm: There is no need to leave the car alarm on as the car is completely safe onboard our carriers.
- Perform a car maintenance check: This involves getting any fluid leaks fixed by a mechanic and thereafter, ensuring that all fluids are filled to their recommended levels. Also ensure that all tires are properly inflated and that the car battery is sufficiently charged.
- Take photos: We recommend clients to have a personal record of the car’s condition before shipping. They can do this by taking clear pictures of every side of the car.
