How to prepare a car for shipping
When you decide to use a professional you can check their license records at the FMCSA and get reviews and feedback from other people who have used the service. Use the following checklist to help you get a stress-free shipping experience.
- Wash the vehicle and run it through a pre-shipping inspection. Look around it for chips, dents, dings, and scrapes as you record every detail. Use a camera to take dated photographs of all the imperfections.
- Remove all the custom accessories to prevent possible losses or damages during the shipping process. The items include CD and DVD players, GPS, speakers, radar detectors, and other interior fittings. You should also take out the spoilers, ground effects, and roof racks form the exterior.
- Do not leave any valuables, household goods, and other personal items inside the vehicle. It is against the federal regulations for transport companies to carry these items in your car, and you will take responsibility for the resulting damage or losses.
- Only a handful of companies can accept to transport inoperable vehicles, which happens at an extra charge. Try to keep the car functioning properly by running maintenance checks on the fluids and topping them off. Keep the battery on a full charge and make sure that you have well-inflated tires. Note the mechanical problems and share them with the transporter in advance.
- Do not keep too much gas in the tank as it might increase the safety risks. We recommend that you run it down to about a quarter full. Make sure that you disable the alarm system and deactivatethe toll tags and EZ-passes.
- Get all the information that you need about shipping cars to or from SierraMadre by visiting the local chapter of the Department of Transportation.
