What are the Options for Shipping a Car to Georgia?
There are a few different options available to ship your car to Georgia. The reason there are so many ways to ship a car is because reputable services like to make their prices flexible.
The roll on/roll off method is the most cost efficient way to ship a vehicle overseas. If you want to make things even less expensive, you can drop the car off at the terminal yourself.
If you would like to have a little more protection for your vehicle and a more convenient delivery, you should consider container shipping with door to door delivery. This option is more expensive, but you will not have to arrange for a ride home from the terminal. You can also select airfreight if your bank account will allow. This method of shipping is the quickest, but most expensive shipping option on the market to date.
Do I Need to Prepare My Car for Transport?
Unless you are shipping inside of a container, you must make sure your vehicle is ready for transport. This means having any leaks repaired and topping off the fluids. You should also check the tire pressure and document all the damages to your car.
The shipping company you hire will provide you with a list of things to take care of before the delivery date. Those who purchase the roll on/roll off method must also remove any personal possessions from the vehicle. Once the checklist has been completed, make sure you hand over a copy of your inspection report sheet to the driver.
