Transport services offered in Manitou Springs
Loading more than one vehicle on the same truck makes good use of space, particularly in a low-budget situation. If you have a standard ride that you use regularly, you can opt to send it using our open-air solution. The trucks can handle between 8-10 cars on the same trip.
If you have an expensive car, you can opt for enclosed shipping to give it extra protection from the elements. It is also a suitable option when you need discrete transport for a high-profile vehicle.
We have a variety of solutions for international shippers starting with expert help in the paperwork and customs-related issues.
- The roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) standard offers the most economical transport solution. The specialized vessels that we use can transport 500-800 vehicles on the same trip. The ships have covered decks, which protect the cars from the elements.
- Our container options can transport vehicles and personal effects to overseas destinations. A 20ft container can only accommodate one car, while the 40ft option offers room for 2-3 cars.
You settle for a terminal drop-off/pickup point when shipping cars to or from Manitou Springs if you live close to a transportation depot. It is a low-cost solution, which may serve as the only choice in highly urbanized areas and neighborhoods with narrow streets.
If you have a long drive to the available transportation depot, you can settle for the door-to-door option. We will fetch the car from any point that you send us and get it delivered to your home, office or the nearest point in your neighborhood.
Types of cars that we ship
We have affordable transport solutions for any automobile that you want to move within the country or to an overseas region. Our regular assignments revolve around moving ATVs, boats, RVs, buses, vans, trucks, farm machinery, and many other types of wheeled and non-wheeled vehicles.
How to prepare a car for shipping
The DOT will not allow the transport company to ship any household goods inside your vehicle. Remove all the personal items and valuables. You should also detach the custom accessories like spoilers, bike racks, DVD players, and GPS.
Report any unsolved mechanical problems in advance so that we can prepare the right equipment. Write down special operation instructions for any quirks that you have on the vehicle. Run the following maintenance checks to guarantee a smooth process:
- Check the engine oil, coolant, anti-free and transmission fluids.
- Make sure that the battery runs on a full charge.
- Use properly inflated tires.
- Keep the fuel levels at about 1/4 of the tank. Going beyond that may increase the weight and safety problems.
Give the vehicle a thorough wash. It becomes easy to prepare a condition report since you can spot all the cosmetic damage on the body. A proper inspection should detail every chip, dent, scratch, or paint discolorations on the car.
Remove the toll tags and parking stickers to avoid accumulating unnecessary charges. Retract the antenna, fold-in the side-view mirrors, and use a protective cover on the external loose parts that could break or fall off during the process.
Disable the alarm system to avoid interrupting the truck driver during the transportation process. It may also drain the charge on your battery. Make a set of spare keys to the vehicle and give them to the transporter during the collection.
