Although your Freightliner isn’t protected by the walls of a shipping container, its value is protected by the transporter’s insurance coverage. This coverage will ensure that your Freightliner is repaired or replaced if it is ever involved in an accident during the transport. Fortunately, this is a rare occurrence. However, if damage was done, tell the transport company. After they assess the damages, they’ll file a claim with their insurance carrier immediately.

If you’re shipping your Freightliner overseas, it will likely get secured to the top of a flatbed ship. It will then make its way overseas under the careful eye of the professional transporters. They’ll ensure the truck’s safety as it makes its way to the right port. The transport company will make sure that all import laws are met and even inform you of the paperwork needed to get Custom’s approval. This is perhaps the most difficult and stressful part of an international delivery. Nonetheless, the auto shipping experts make it much easier to comply with the import policies regarding large commercial truck imports.
