Transport services offered in Olathe
Open-air shipping allows you to send a range of standard vehicles at the most economical rates. Since the trucks travel the routes often, you can book in your car almost at any time. Our trailers can handle 8-10 cars going on the same trip.
On an exposed trailer, strong winds and snowstorms can cause cosmetic damage to any high-end vehicles in transit. A solid barrier over the cargo will offer a protective shield against the elements. The enclosed trucks that we use can do that and more, such as allowing enough ground room for the cars with a low undercarriage.
When drawing up a plan to move overseas, we can help you include the vehicle on the list of items that you can move. We have reliable transport solutions that may start with handling the complex paperwork processes depending on your needs:
- For highly expensive and sensitive vehicles, we can send them by plane if you can meet the high costs. If you don’t mind waiting around for a few weeks, containerized shipping comes in as the better solution. A container will shield the car from potential hazards as it travels across the ocean.
- RoRo ships help to cut down the transportation costs when you have a non-running car, which needs a little handling during the transportation process. They have special ramps that allow us to drive the vehicles on or off the decks during the loading and unloading.
A door-to-door arrangement will send our driver to fetch or deliver the vehicle right next to your house or the nearest point that you choose. Sometimes our trucks might find it hard to navigate the neighborhood streets, in which case we will settle for a public parking lot in your area.
Major urban areas have transit storage terminals, which may help you to save money when shipping cars to or from Olathe. We will coordinate a convenient drop-off or pickup point at one of the available transportation hubs in Colorado.

How to prepare a car for shipping
The federal authorities prohibit certain items from traveling as part of the vehicles in transit. The list includes all things classified as household goods and contraband. Vehicle transporters that go against the rules will suffer heavy fines, penalties of license revocation.
Remove all the custom accessories from the vehicle to protect them from possible damage during the shipping process. Aftermarket DVD players, GPS, spoilers, bike racks, luggage racks, and ground effects should not travel as part of the vehicle due to limits on the transit insurance policy.
Do not send the vehicle on an empty gas tank unless you declare it as a non-op in advance, which will need different sets of equipment. The transporter needs to drive the car during the handling process. The following measures will help you to keep it in working order:
- Top off the fluid levels
- Keep the battery on a full charge
- Make sure that you have well-inflated tires
- Fix all the mechanical issues and aggressive fluid leaks
- Keep the fuel levels at 1/4 of the tank
Wash the vehicle before the pickup date so that you can make a correct inspection. The transporter’s representative will check for the pre-existing cosmetic damage before loading the car on the truck. Make sure that you get a detailed report on the Bill of Lading.
Disable the alarm system, deactivate the toll tags, and prepare a spare set of keys for the truck driver.
