How to prepare a car for shipping
Try to make your plans a few weeks in advance and contact the transport company early enough so that you get a convenient schedule. The following tips will help you to make the best preparations for your vehicle before the pick-up date.
- Wash the vehicle so that it becomes easy to prepare an inspection report. Record details of every chip, dent, or scratch presently on the car. Doing so will help you to spot any damage caused during the transportation process. You can take photos of all sides of the vehicle and add them to your records.
- Remove personal belongings and aftermarket accessories from inside the vehicle. It is against federal regulations. The insurance policy will not cover for the damage caused by the items. Remove everything that did not come with the car from the factory, which includes DVD players and GPS.
- Run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank. Any more than that will add unnecessary weight to your vehicle and increase the safety risks. Keep enough fluid levels in the engine and transmission system. Top off the coolant and make sure that you have a fully charged battery.
- You should have well-inflated tires and make sure that there no aggressive leaks coming from the vehicle. Send it for repair to fix the existing mechanical problems. If you feel that you have little time to fix the vehicle, list all the outstanding issues and share them with the transporter.
- Remove the spoilers, roof racks, fog lights and other accessories added to the exterior to protect them from possible damage. Remove or retract the antenna and fold in the side-view mirrors. Note down the odometer reading, disable the alarm system, and deactivatethe toll tags. Get an extra key for the truck driver.
