Using Melbourne, FL Auto Transport Services
- How It Works - After you book your pickup date with the car shipper, there are some basic things you’ll need to do to make sure the car is ready to be loaded onto the carrier. This includes things like basic maintenance, checking fluid levels and tire pressure to ensure the vehicle is in good running condition. (Not all auto transporters will move an inoperable car.) When the driver arrives to pick up your car, they will note the condition on the bill of lading (the main document in cargo shipping), which you should review. Any damages should be noted on the bill of lading and you’ll want it to be as accurate as possible since it will provide a basis of comparison once the car arrives at its destination. If the initial condition isn’t accurate, the shipper may not be liable for damages incurred during the transport process. You will need to be present when the vehicle is dropped off, though temporary storage is available from most companies (see below).

- Watercraft Transport - Since we handle a lot of vehicle transport in Florida, we’re well aware that not every vehicle that needs to be shipped is on wheels. Some, but not all, car shipping companies are also equipped to move boats, yachts, and jet skis. Though there are limitations based on the size and type of carriers they have available, boat transport is very much a part of the vehicle transport industry. Our boat transport options are especially popular for seasonal vacationers, sport fisherman and private owners that are moving a long distance. Make sure you talk to someone on the phone if you need a boat shipped since not all companies offer the service and there may be limitations on what types of boats they can move.
Winterizing your boat or storing it for an extended period? Make sure to read these tips (PDF) and consult the boat storage checklist.
- Storage - It’s not uncommon for customers that need a car shipped to also need short term storage. In most cases, the customer needs to be present to receive the vehicle, which means that storage is sometimes a necessity. If you know that you’ll need storage when you’re booking the transport company, make sure to mention it early on in the process. You may qualify for a discount for booking both services at the same time.
