Using Columbus Vehicle Transport Companies

Prior to your auto transport to Columbus:

  • Prep your car properly: Clear out all personal effects, remove items that can easily be damaged or fall off the vehicle during transport and do everything you can well in advance to prep your vehicle prior to turning it over to the transport company.
  • Ask about the experience of your driver: Whether you are getting personalized transport or having your car moved on a tractor-trailer, you still need to know a little bit about the person moving it. This is a pertinent question to ask in advance of transport.
  • Research all available depots to which to ship: This not only tells you how close to your end destination your chosen company can get your vehicle, but it is also an indicator of the reach that your company of choice has around the country. The bigger the reach, the more competitive the rates.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Columbus
