There are simple steps that can guarantee the safe transport of your car. Listed below are some tips that you can follow:
Inspect Your Car Before Shipping
It is very important to check for any pre-existing damages in your car. You will be able to carry this out more effectively by washing your vehicle thoroughly. Furthermore, you must take note of scratches, chips, and any cosmetic damages on your vehicle.
Besides writing down the damages, you must also take pictures of the vehicle at various angles. For the pre-existing cosmetic changes, you should try to take close-up images.
It is important to associate your records with dates. These must be verified with the shipping coordinator. An official note of receipt must also be given, and it must reflect that the car shipper is aware of your vehicle’s pre-transportation damages.
Remove All Valuable Items From Your Car
It is best to transport your car without any valuable products in it. For instance, if you have custom components installed in it, such as GPS systems, DVD players, and stereos, take them out to avoid loss or damage.
It is also better to get rid of the toll tags and parking passes in your car. Otherwise, you will be facing unexpected fees from the tolls your vehicle passes through. Never forget to disable and remove the custom alarm system of your car as well. In case you forgot to disable it, the shipper has the right to turn it off in any way.
Do Not Fill Up With Gas
There is no need to fill up your vehicle with gas while it is being transported. Furthermore, your car will be heavier with a full tank. This factor may cause extra shipment risks. As much as possible, leave only a small amount of gas in your car tank during the moving process.
Simply follow the provided tips above to ensure the hassle-free transportation of your car. Preparation is vital not only for your car’s protection but for the prevention of problems that may arise during the moving process.
