Using Racine Vehicle Transport Companies
- Storage - Car shipping companies will require that you be present at the time they drop off your vehicle. Since coordinating travel plans can be tricky, most companies have short term storage facilities available in which they can store your car. Storage facilities are most commonly found in major cities and along primary shipping routes, which makes it easier to arrange if you’re having a car shipped to a major metropolitan area. If you need storage and the auto transporter doesn’t offer it, they can usually arrange it with a local auto storage company for a reasonable price.
- Preparation - There are a few things you should do before your vehicle is picked up by the auto carrier. The first is to make sure it is clean, both the interior and outside of the vehicle. This is so that the carrier can make an accurate note of the condition of the car before loading it onto the trailer. Standard maintenance is also recommended: tire pressure, fluid levels, checking for leaks, etc. Any internal components in the vehicle should also be removed, including disabling alarms and GPS units. Finally, any external components that are removable (spoilers, luggage & bike racks) should be removed from the vehicle.
- Research - Before signing a contract with an auto carrier--always get the contract in writing--you should do some basic research on the company. If you know someone who has used an auto transport service before, that’s always a good resource, as are car rental companies and dealerships. If you want to look up information about a company’s service and safety records, as well as the current status of their license, you can look up car shippers using the company snapshot feature from the website for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
