Rutland, Vermont Professional Auto Transport
Rutland is one of the largest cities in the State of Vermont and is one of the few cities not located near a major highway. The city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and definitely has an old fashioned sort of feel to it in the downtown shopping district. The buildings are primarily fully restored historical buildings and the majority have been standing since the city’s incorporation in the late 1800’s. In the downtown area there is a large Paramount Theater, a free library, a hand-crafted brew pub, several locally owned retail shops and several diners, a bakery and other locally owned businesses. Rutland has plenty of space for outdoor activity including a skateboard park, mountain bike and walking trails, hiking trails and playgrounds and other outdoor parks. The city hosts many community events including a Friday night free music show, art in the park, a summertime farmers market and several festivals and entertaining events. The Vermont State Fair is held in Rutland annually and brings thousands of people to the city for carnival rides, food and games and live entertainment.

Shipping a Motor Vehicle to Rutland
Keep these tips in mind when shipping a motor vehicle to Rutland:
- If shipping a car to Rutland in the wintertime, make sure the car is winter weather ready. Snow can be a major concern in Rutland and you may want to have snow tires or chains put on the tires before shipping. Also make sure the antifreeze is filled as the cold weather can cause mechanical issues if the car does not have the proper amount of antifreeze.
- Before shipping you will need to wash the car and clean the inside as well as remove all personal items and important paperwork from the interior. Remove any loose CD’s, DVD’s, garage door openers and aftermarket detachable face stereos or video monitors.
- Run the gas down to a quarter tank, check the battery charge and make sure the brakes are in good condition. Unless approved by the auto transport company, the vehicle needs to be in good running condition when loaded onto the carrier. If the car has a tricky ignition switch you will need to show the driver how to start the car as he will need to do so as he loads or unloads other vehicles during the trip.
