Tips to Ship a Vehicle to Columbus
Planning ahead is very important when shipping a car to Columbus. Use these tips to help guide you as you make plans to have your car transported:
- Keep in mind that the weather in Columbus can be very hot and humid, especially in the summertime. Make sure the antifreeze in the car is filled as it will help prevent the car from overheating.
- Check with the local DMV to register the vehicle. You will also want to find out about obtaining a local driver’s license. In Mississippi, you have up to 30 days to register the vehicle locally and you will need your car title, current registration, photo identification and the fee for the registration. If you do not register the vehicle in time, you can face fines up to $250.
- Make sure the transport company has valid insurance coverage that will be enough to cover your vehicle in case of accidental damage. If the amount of their coverage is not enough you will want to either ask for an increase or supply your own insurance coverage with a private policy.
