Are You Ready for Auto Shipping?
Keep these tips from A-1 Auto Transport in mind when you’re planning to ship a car:
- Be prepared for varying times in transport. The weather, road conditions, seasonal traffic and the location of pickup and delivery can all affect transit times.
- To fit on a standard carrier your car needs to be 7’ or less in height and must be at least 4” off the ground. If the vehicle has been modified you need to let your agent know so they can schedule the correct carrier.
- All personal items including CD and DVD players, garage door openers and all other loose items must be removed from the inside of the car.
- No flammable liquids or gasses, plants, firearms or other hazardous material may be left inside the vehicle when being transported.
- You must be present when the carrier picks the vehicle up as well as when the carrier delivers the vehicle at the new location.
- If there is any damage found on the car when it is delivered you need to bring it to the driver’s attention and make sure it is noted on the Bill of Lading. You also need to immediately contact the company to file a claim. Never delay on filing an accidental damage claim as it could deter the repair from being made.
