How to prepare a car for shipping
- It becomes difficult to have a thorough visual inspection of the vehicle if there are patches of dirt and mud on the body. Clean the car so that you can find all the pre-existing chips, dents, scratches, and paint discolorations.
- Personal and household items left inside the vehicle can cause damage during the shipping process. The transit insurance will not protect you in such situations.
- Mechanical failure can lead to high transportation costs. Make sure that you have a running battery and well-inflated tires. Top off the fluid levels and check the car for leaks and other mechanical problems.
- Report any unsolved issues in advance to so that the transporter can prepare the right handling equipment.
- Run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank. The transporter needs the fuel to start and drive the vehicle during the loading and unloading process.
- Fold in your side-view mirrors and retract the antenna. Remove any custom accessories that might suffer damage during the shipping process, like spoilers and fog lights. Use a protective cover on the non-detachable items to prevent possible breaking or denting.
- An alarm that triggers off in the middle of transportation can drain the battery. Try to disable the system or leave instructions on the deactivation steps.
- Active toll tags may accumulate charges as your vehicle travels along the highway. Leave them deactivated for the trip.
- Make a set of spare keys that you will hand over to the truck driver and note down the current odometer reading before giving out the vehicle.
