Using Richmond Vehicle Transport Companies

  • Comparing Prices – You absolutely should compare prices between different companies that ship cars in your area. Most auto transport companies have a website that allows you to easily get a free price quote with some basic information and a few clicks on a form. Take advantage of this! With a couple phones calls or a little web searching, you can easily get a handful of quotes in a very short amount of time and have companies competing for your business.
  • Bill of Lading – The bill of lading is a legal document that explains the details of a cargo shipment. It includes information about the vehicle, its condition and where it is being delivered. The auto transporter will do an inspection of your vehicle before shipping and it will be noted on the bill of lading, at which point you should review it. Not only does the bill of lading explain the terms and conditions of the shipment, it also acts as your proof of purchase, so take a good look at it!

  • International Transport – Shipping a car to another country can be done in a couple different ways. Transporting a car to Canada or Mexico can still be done with overland car carriers. If a vehicle needs to be transported overseas or by boat, there are two primary methods. The first is called roll on, roll off or RORO shipping. With RORO shipping, the car is driven onto a transport ship and secured in a cargo area designed to hold vehicles. The other method is called containerized shipping, in which the car is loaded into a shipping container. Transporting a car in a container allows you to put additional items, such as personal belongs or furniture, in the container along with the car.
