Safe and Reliable Piedmont Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
As cities go, Piedmont in Alabama is quite small spanning only about 10 square kilometers. However, it can trace its roots back in the mid-1800s on a property purchased by Maj. Jacob Forney Daily from North Carolina. He called it back then the Cross Plains. Progress, however, was slow due to its violent past and the racial tensions that blew over many times.
Today, Piedmont is brimming with potential. Families who like to live in a close-knit community will find a home in the city.

How to Prepare Your Car Before Shipping It to Piedmont, AL
Preparing your car for transport is very easy. Check the exterior and the interior, and all pre-existing damages should be specified and written in the report. Document all the scratches and dents with photos. Finally, the carrier should countersign the documents. This is important for insurance purposes.
Don't worry, only a negligible number of vehicles is damaged during transport, which speaks of the competence and professionalism of the industry. Nevertheless, it's best you protect yourself.
Check your oil, fluid and battery. If you don't know anything about engine, have your mechanic note all the defects (if there's any) or give the engine a clean bill of health. If there's a leak, notify the carrier so that it will ensure your car will be placed at the bottom rack of the trailer.
Don't ship your car on a tank full of gas, however, not only for safety purposes but also to keep the weight to the minimum.
If you have a protruding antenna, retract it. Spoilers and fog lights should be secured and your mirrors folded back. Disable your car alarm, or at least tell the carrier how to disable it if it's triggered in the middle of transport.
Check the inside of the vehicle. Look around for any object that may be dislodged during travel. Although with reputable companies, theft incidents don't happen, it does occur in some instances.
Make sure to remove all valuables, after-market navigation systems, TVs and stereos. It stands to reason that any cash inside the vehicle should be taken out as well.
