Areas we serve within Dublin
One of the reasons behind our large Dublin clientele is our extensive scope of service. We rely on our knowledge of the city’s profile and state-of-the-art GPS navigation systems when making our way to addresses across the region when shipping cars to or from Dublin. We also stretch our reach to the neighboring cities and towns, including San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose.
Auto transport services we provide
- Open carrier services: Open carriers are long hauls that come with flatbed racks. We use straps to secure the cars onboard the racks before shipping them as they are. The cars are left slightly exposed to the external environment. They, however, are not exposed to damage as drivers are instructed not to transport cars under adverse weather conditions like hail. They are also instructed to avoid roads with low hanging tree branches as these may damage the cars. Should the client wish, they have the option of using shrink wrapping to keep rain and dust off.
- Enclosed carriers: These come with an enclosed container which houses the cars during transportation. The container provides extra protection from external elements like extreme weather conditions, twigs and small rocks from the road. Additionally, the container offers privacy, making it the best option for shipping high-end cars. The advantages of using an enclosed carrier, however, come at a much higher price compared to using an open carrier.
Types of cars we transport
Our service mix is tailored to the profile of all types of autos that we ship. These include trucks, vans, motorcycles, high-end cars, salvaged cars, inoperable cars, electric cars, hybrid cars, alternative fuel cars, ATVs, RVs & motorhomes, sedans, SUVs, jet skis, heavy equipment like tractors and boats of all sizes.
How to prepare your car for shipping
- Perform a car maintenance check: A thorough maintenance check involves identifying any fluid leaks, fixing them and thereafter, filling the fluids up to their recommended levels. Additionally, check the car battery life and have it charged if need be. Also ensure the tires have enough pressure. All this is done to ensure the car does not run into mechanical issues during shipping.
- Remove all personal items from the car: It is prohibited to have personal items like clothing, electronics, appliances, etc. in a car during shipping. Ensure you remove all of them, including all aftermarket installations like GPS navigation services and DVD players. These, are not covered under the in-transit insurance policy. Additionally, remove all unnecessary heavy items in the trunk as these make the car heavier. A heavier car attracts a higher shipping fee.
- Wash the car: Washing the car makes it easier for the driver to perform a car hauler inspection. The inspection identifies all pre-existing damage, which is recorded in a comprehensive report. The minor details like a scratch on the paintjob may get obscured if the car is dirty.
- Take photos!: The car hauler’s inspection report is the driver’s findings of the car’s condition before shipping. It is advisable to take clear photos of every side of the car. These act as your personal record of the car’s condition before shipping. You can later compare these with the car hauler’s inspection report.
- Leave about a quarter-full tank of gas: The car only needs enough gas to cover the loading and offloading during shipping. A quarter-full tank of gas covers such movement without adding to the car’s weight, like a full tank of gas would.
