Find reliable vehicle movers

Kick off the process by identifying a top of the line auto transport company that operates within Tacoma. You want one that offers reasonable quotes and has all the necessary equipment for loading and discharge with an excellent customer care team to boot. Note that many companies will talk a big game but end up falling short on their promises. The only way to figure out the exact nature of a shipping company is by reading true-to-life customer experiences. Leading companies will have nothing short of raving reviews.

Vehicle shipping inspection before and after delivery

It is common practice for auto movers to inspect your car before they take it off your hands. Any pre-existing damage should be jotted down to the last scratch and dent. This is a very sensitive process that warrants your physical presence or that of a trusted representative. Here at A-1 auto transport, we encourage our clients to take detailed photos from every angle just before departure. You also ought to pen down the odometer reading too.

Upon delivery of the vehicle, reconcile your findings with the photos taken. If there are any dents, scratches or a significant rise in the odometer reading you have it good authority to file an insurance claim.

Preparing for transport

Shipping cars to or from the port of Tacoma calls for adequate preparation. For your vehicle to be deemed safe and operable for loading and discharge, the following should be met:

  • Your tank should be no more than half and no less than quarter. This minimizes any unwarranted gas leaks while still leaving enough gas for loading on a Ro-Ro vessel.
  • Removal of all exterior add-ons such as spare tyres, car covers, and grills.
  • Deep cleaning of the interior and exterior of the car to get rid of any plants and insects. This requirement was set by the USDA.

In addition to this, you ought to adequately prepare your car for its new destination. This may range anywhere from investing in snow tyres to purchasing an engine coolant depending on the weather of the destination.

Vehicles transport options

You are accorded with two main modes of shipment when shipping cars to or from Port of Tacoma: Ro-Ro and Container. The latter is useful for shipping exotic cars while the former is a cheaper alternative that fits the bill for all other scenarios.
