Car Shipping Tips
Shipping a car can be simple when you follow these tips from A-1 Auto Transport:
- Compare - You need to contact several companies and compare not only the price they quote but more importantly are the services that they offer. If you have a custom car you should hire a company that has enclosed transport so the car will be secure during shipment. Most companies have open carriers but not all have enclosed.
- The Low Price Attention Grabber - When a company quotes a very low price, it may grab your attention. You should be aware that many companies will offer a low price but that low price frequently goes up after you book service. Be sure to get everything in writing and carefully read the fine print to make sure they cannot increase the price at a later date.
- Getting the car ready to go - Once you have booked transport with the company of your choice you will need to get the car ready to go. Since the car will be inspected at pickup and delivery, you need to make sure it is washed and that all personal items have been removed from the inside. Drive the car around a bit to lower the fuel down to about ¼ tank. Fuel will add weight to the vehicle and can increase shipping costs. Check for fluid leaks and make sure the car is operable. You will also need to have keys made for the driver and you will need to make plans to be present when the car is picked up and delivered.
