Enclosed Shipping is an Option
When considering truck shipping, enclosed shipping is always an option that you can go with. You may pay more for this type of service, but it can be well worth it in the long run. You can ensure that you protect your truck from all outside hazards, debris and other elements that it might meet.
Not only that, but millions of dollars in theft have been reported while shipping vehicles from one place to the next. If you have a truck that is enclosed, it is less likely to be seen and less likely to be stolen in the process of moving it.
Insurance companies like to see that the vehicle is in an enclosed shipping container. Due to this, they can possibly provide a nice break on the cost of shipping insurance for the person using their company.
Preparing Your Truck for Shipping
Preparation is key when it comes to shipping a truck from one place to the next. You want to ensure that you have everything set to go when they come to pick up the truck. This is generally 2 to 7 days from the day that you hire them for the shipment.
Cleaning the inside and outside of the truck prior to shipment is highly recommended. You want to ensure that it is in the best shape possible when it comes to sending it to another area. This is also an ideal time to make sure that you remove all your personal items from the inside of the vehicle when the time comes. You don’t want to lose any of these belongings when your truck is being shipped. Also, since a portion of the charges are based on vehicle weight, removing any extras will help keep the weight, as well as the cost, down.
Check to make sure that the truck is working properly. Maintenance should be done on it prior to shipping, as well as replacement of any parts that may not be working, such as the bulbs.
