Using Royal Oak Auto Transport Services
- Remove Personal Items - Before the shipper will load your vehicle onto the transport trailer, it needs to be clean and empty. This means that any personal items should be removed from the car, as well as any other nonpermanent components. Items included on this list are GPS navigation units, detachable stereo parts, toll cards and passes, and any other electronic devices. This requirement is in place so that items inside the vehicle don’t cause damage while the driver is hauling it. While it may seem like a trivial concern, items inside the car can move during transport--especially during long distance trips--and cause damage to the interior. (Some transport companies may allow a minimal amount of personal items to be stored in the trunk.)
- Gas Level & Alarm System - Removing personal belongings isn’t the only preparation you’ll need to do before your car is picked up. You’ll also need to disable the car alarm or any security system before the vehicle can be loaded onto the carrier. This is done so that the driver doesn’t have to contend with car alarms going off while in the process of driving. The amount of gas in the tank should be no more than 1/4 of a tank--some auto shippers may even request as little as 1/8 of a tank. Having less gas in the tank means that the overall cargo weight is less, which in turn reduces the total cost of shipping. It’s also safer to move multiple vehicles when they have less fuel in them.
- Information You’ll Need - In order to take advantage of the free estimates offered by auto shippers, there is some basic information that you’ll need to provide. The make, model and year of the vehicle are required, as are the pickup and drop off locations. (If you’re shipping a vehicle other than a car, be sure to mention that as well--most websites will have menu options that reflect the services they offer.) In cases of door-to-door auto transport, the specific address will be needed. If your car is inoperable or has any modifications to it, that also needs to be mentioned since it can affect the method of shipping required. If you have the specific dates or a window of time that you need your vehicle delivered within, that will help the companies you’re working with give you the most accurate quote possible.
