Shipping to Newport
Use these tips from A-1 Auto Transport to have your car ready for transport:
- Make sure there are no personal items inside the car. Personal items are not covered by insurance and if lost or damaged while in transit the carrier insurance will not cover the loss.
- Cars should be clean when the carrier picks them up. They will be physically inspected and it’s much easier to see the body of the body of the car when it is clean. When the car is delivered it will again be inspected and you will want to be able to compare the inspection notes upon arrival to make sure there is not any damage from transport.
- Make sure the company that you have hired is one that you feel completely comfortable with. You need to be able to trust the company with your vehicle and know they are dependable. Check to see if they have accreditation from the Better Business Bureau and if they have good reviews and recommendations online from prior customers.
- The car should be checked before the date of pick-up to make sure it is in top condition. Drivers must load and unload cars sporadically during transport in order to pick-up and deliver other vehicles along the way.
- Your fuel should be run down to about a quarter tank. This will be enough for the driver to load and unload during transport but not enough that will add extra weight to the vehicle.
