How to prepare your car for shipping
Find out about all the particulars that involve vehicle transportation in the region. Contact the Department of Transportation (DOT) in the destination state to find out the rules and regulations relating to vehicle ownership and state taxes.
Federal regulations state that you cannot use your car to transport personal belongings. The list usually includes aftermarket installations like CD and DVD players, speakers, GPS, and radar detectors. Get in touch with your transporter for rules that are more specific on the same.
Keep the vehicle free of dirt and debris by giving it a thorough clean. It becomes easy to check for the existing cosmetic damage during the pre-shipping inspection. Write a report of your findings and share it with the truck driver for validation. You may go a step further and include dated photographs of all sides.
Most transit insurance policies do not protect external add-ons like spoilers and ground effects. Get them removed and include all the other detachable parts on the exterior. Use a protective cover n the non-removable loose items to shield them from potential damage. Fold in the side-view mirrors and retract the antenna.
The transporter assumes that you have a running vehicle unless you make it known when booking. The following checks can help to create a smooth process and avoid unnecessary charges or delays.
- Run down the gas tank to about a quarter-full.
- Top off the fluid levels.
- Use a fully charged battery.
- Check the tire pressure.
- Check the braking system.
- Fix all the mechanical problems and fluid leaks or make them known to the transporter in advance.
