Mode of shipping

Container shipping is the only method of shipping cars to or from the port of Decatur, Alabama. The initial loading process, more commonly referred to as stuffing, is a meticulous process that needs well-trained personnel. Your car will be hauled up by a crane and carefully placed inside a 40 ft. or a 20 ft. container. To this end, the port of Decatur Alabama boasts of highly skilled workers who carry out this task without so much as a dent or scratch on your car.

After the car is safely inside the container, the wheels will be held down to the floor by use of metal or wooden chocks. Afterwards, the car will be secured into position by lashing it to every corner of the container.

Preparation

  • Get rid of all household goods inside the car, e.g. iPods, clothing items, food items, etc.
  • Any after-market add-on such as DVD interfaces, toll tags, car phones, and bumpers should be removed.
  • Your car battery ought to be fully charged and safely secured on the mounting bracket.
  • Run down your fuel tank to between a quarter and a half full to prevent leaks and to keep your carโ€™s weight low.
  • Prepare the car for loading by removing body kits that reduce the ground clearance and by folding car mirrors inwards.
  • Thoroughly wash your car from top to bottom and ensure that no plant life, pet dander or dirt is lodged in the mudguards, dashboard or beneath the car seats.

Documentation

One of the most notable documents is the bill of lading. This is a document detailing the make, model, and manufacture date of the car in which a carrier promises to safely deliver the vehicle in the condition it was prescribed to them. When filling out the bill, ensure to back it up in the following ways:

  • Pen down a personal, date-marked record of dents, chips, or scratches in addition to any other cosmetic damage.
