Using East Hartford Vehicle Transport Companies
- Cleaning & Preparation – Your vehicle will need to be cleaned and empty before an auto transport company will pick it up for delivery. This means removal of any personal items inside the car, as well as any exterior components that are not permanently attached. Items that fall under this category include luggage and bike racks, wheelchair mounts, spoilers, and storage compartments. Inside the vehicle, you’ll need to detach and remove any electronic devices such as GPS units, toll passes, electronic parking tags, and detachable audio components. It’s important that the outside of the car be cleaned so that the driver get to evaluate the condition of the vehicle accurately. This report will be documented on the bill of lading, both before and after shipping, to determine if any damages have occurred.

- Mechanical Considerations – Though some shippers are capable of transporting non-running cars, an additional fee will usually apply since special equipment is needed to load non-operational vehicles. For the maximum savings, your car should be in good running condition and, ideally, have been recently serviced. The main things to check, as far as a car shipper is concerned, are that the battery is charged, fluids are topped off and tire pressure is checked. Since the position of the vehicles sometimes have to be shuffled to accommodate the order of delivery, it can cause significant delays if a vehicle won’t start, or can’t be driven off the carrier temporarily. Cars are often shipped aboard a double-decker carrier, which means that it’s also a good idea to check for any leaks so that oil and fluids don’t drip onto adjacent cars. (Auto carriers have leak and drip guards specifically to guard against this.)
- Before Contacting A Shipper – Before you contact a company to get a cost estimate, there are some steps you can take that will make the process of comparing prices easier. The first step is to gather the appropriate information that an auto transporter will need to give you a price quote. This includes things vehicle make, model and year, current location and drop off destination, any mechanical issues your vehicle may have, and which type of carrier you prefer (open or enclosed). If your car has any damages, it’s also a good idea to document this yourself, preferably with photos. Having your own record of the condition can be helpful when the driver evaluates your vehicle and will ensure that the information contained in the condition report is as accurate as possible. Photos can also be helpful in the rare event that you need to file a claim for damages that occurred during shipping.
