Hire the best car shipping services
Whether shipping nationwide or overseas, your auto transport company should have experience in trucking. Ensure that they have a valid license to operate in Marcus Hook and its environs. Their staff should be qualified for the job and have skills required for shipping. The equipment used in loading and unloading of vehicles should be appropriate and in good condition to avoid accidents. Also look out for professional customer service when looking to hire vehicle movers.
Inspect your car before shipment
Endeavour to inspect your vehicle even when shipping on short notice. Make notes of any unusual marks or dents before releasing the car to the auto shipping company. Cleaning the car should also be done for both the interior and exterior. If you come across any personal items, remove them to prevent them from getting damaged. In some cases, border security can hold your car for being dirty and charge extra for getting it cleaned on your behalf.
Insist on a signed contract
Signed contracts are sacred in the transport industry. Both parties are expected to adhere to terms outlined in the document. However, for a contract to be valid it has to be duly-signed by the shipping company and the car owner. Make certain that the person signing the contract is a legal representative of the company to avoid issues in the future. Keep a copy to refer back to incase the job is done poorly and an agreement on certain issues is unattainable.
Plan ahead for pickup or drop off
Typically, shipping cars to or from port of Marcus Hook is done according to a time schedule. The schedule is shared with the vehicle owner and truck driver to make it easier to keep pickup and drop off appointments. Plan to be at the agreed location on time to avoid delaying the truck driver. Also, deliveries cannot be completed without a walkthrough, so arriving early gives you time to inspect your car thoroughly.
