How to prepare a car for shipping
- Run a car maintenance schedule: Ensure it has no fluid leaks and refill them to their recommended levels. Additionally, check the tire pressure and ensure the battery is charged. This is done to ensure the car doesn’t break down during shipping. Also, take note of the car’s mileage before shipping. The mileage after shipping shouldn’t differ a lot from the mileage before shipping.
- Mind the keys: The driver will need a set of keys to access the car during transportation. Ensure you have a spare key with you and have a copy made if you have one.
- Wash the car: Have the car cleaned prior to the day of shipping. The driver needs to perform a car hauler’s inspection before transporting the car. All pre-existing damage needs to be recorded, no matter how minute. This is done to ensure the carrier firm is not liable for the damage. It’s harder to spot such details on a dirty car.
- Remove all personal items from the car: The Department of Transportation mandates that no car hauler should ship any car with household goods in them. These include electronics, appliances, clothing and shopping of any kind. Also, remove all aftermarket installations like DVD players and GPS navigation systems to save them from damage or theft.
- Leave about a quarter full gas: Shipping a car with a full tank of gas will have you pay more when shipping it due to the extra weight. A quarter tank of gas covers the movement involved with car shipping and still leaves enough to make it to a gas station for refill.
