Transport services offered in Los Banos
Enclosed shipping: It is the most secure moving option for classic, vintage, and high-value automobiles. The cars travel in a fully enclosed carrier, which offers protection from external forces like the weather.
Open-air shipping: We have a wide array of uncovered trucks offering some of the most affordable moving solutions. Smaller flatbed trucks help us navigate the street clearance when collecting or delivering at your address. Multi-car trailers are the cheapest long-distance solution for shipping cars to or from Los Banos.
Terminal-to-terminal shipping: We have authorized entry in almost all the major transportation depots in the country. You can drop off or pick up the vehicle at the nearest hub in your state.
Door-to-door shipping: If you can’t get down to the transportation depot, we can fetch it or drop it off at your residence. We can always work out the closest address if you live in a hard-to-reach neighborhood.
International RoRo: Standing for roll-on/roll-off, RoRo is the cheapest way to send your vehicle overseas. Some of the transport vessels that we use can carry close to 6000 cars at once, which lowers the costs even further.
Containerized transport: Container shipping helps to secure the cargo from potential damage while at sea. We can place your vehicle inside a shared or a dedicated option depending on your budget.
Air transport: If you want to have your car delivered in the shortest time from across the globe, we can send it on the next available flight. It is usually an expensive affair that we only recommend for certain high-end vehicles and special occasions.

How to prepare a car for shipping
The Department of Transportation (DOT) prohibits the car shipping companies from transporting vehicles packed with household goods. In many cases, the insurance policy does not cover aftermarket accessories like DVD players, and GPS. Get them removed to prevent possible damage.
Wash the vehicle. Walk around the exterior while recording all the chips, dents, and scratches on the body. You may use a camera to take dated photographs of the cosmetic damage and share the records with the truck driver at the collection.
Leave the gas tank with about a quarter of fuel. We might have to start the car and drive on or off the truck when loading and unloading. Try to avoid keeping too much as it might compromise your vehicle’s weight.
Get your vehicle checked by a professional to fix the mechanical problems. If you don’t have enough time for this, write a note detailing the issues and share it with the truck driver. Check the battery and keep it on a full charge, keep the tires well inflated, and top off the fluid levels.
Disable the alarm system so that it doesn’t cause unnecessary interruptions during the transportation. Toll tags and parking passes might attract charges along the highway. Keep them deactivated or get them removed.
