Transport services offered in Stonington
Enclosed trucks offer the best protection to your vehicle during the shipping process. When you transport a luxury brand or rare classic, you need to shield it from all the possible dangers along the road. Here is what you should look for when opting for the service:
- Fully covered trucks to shield the vehicles from the elements
- Hydraulic lift gates for secure loading and unloading
- Air compressed suspension systems for smooth driving on rough roads
When moving out-of-state or buying a new car from a different region, you might need an economical transport solution to keep your costs manageable. In such cases, you can opt for the open-air standard. It is one of the most popular options countrywide. It is easy to come across such trucks running along the major highways.
Containerized transport is the alternative answer to the enclosed option when you need to send a vehicle overseas. A shipping container secures the cars from seaside hazards and handling risks. If you need a low-cost transport solution, you can opt for the roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) standard. RoRo hints at the loading and unloading process, where the automobile get driven on or off the ship.

How to prepare a car for shipping
Remove all personal items and valuables from the vehicle. Any aftermarket accessories such as DVD players and GPS will not get insurance protection during transport. By law, auto shippers should not carry any household goods, plants, and contraband.
Do not fuel up for the trip. Too much gas may add a lot of unnecessary weight to the vehicle, which complicates the shipping process. We recommend that you leave it at about 1/4 of the tank, which will allow for a little driving when necessary.
Wash the vehicle so that you can have a flawless inspection process. Walk around it as you record all the chips, dents, scratches, and discolorations on the body. You can use a camera to take dated photographs of all sides and close up shots of the imperfections.
Fix all the aggressive fluid leaks and mechanical problems to keep the vehicle in driving shape. Run the following maintenance checklist for the best preparation:
- Leave about 1/4 of gas in the tank
- Top off the fluid levels
- Keep the battery on a full charge
- Inflate the tires
- Note down any operational oddities and mechanical problems
The transporter must offer you a liability insurance cover when shipping cars to or from Stonington. It is important that you confirm the coverage extent and compare it with your vehicle’s value.
Cover all the loose parts on the exterior and remove the custom ones like spoilers, grills, luggage racks, and ground effects.
Disable the alarm system to keep it from draining the battery and deactivate the toll tags so that you do not accumulate unnecessary fees as the vehicle travels along the highway.
