Transport services offered in Townsend
For highly expensive luxury vehicles, race drags, classics, or prototypes, we have a specialized service that offers advanced protection throughout the process. The main features include:
- A special hydraulic lift to load and unload your vehicle so that no damage happens to the undercarriage.
- A fully enclosed carrier to offer a protective shield against the elements.
- An experienced handler with immense knowledge in handling rare classics and high-end automobiles, to plan and monitor the process through to completion.
The main advantage of open-air transport is that you don’t have to worry about blowing your budget during a long-distance move. When we place your vehicle on one of our multi-car trailers, you will only pay for space it takes up on the truck.
The door-to-door service is exactly what the name suggests. Our representative will fetch the vehicle from any point that you send us and deliver it to your residence or office. We may opt for a nearby school or public parking lot where the truck cannot drive through your neighborhood.
The terminal-to-terminal option offers an extra avenue for saving money when shipping cars to or from Townsend. We will find a convenient transportation depot in your state, where our representative will drop off or pick up the vehicle.
We can cover all your international vehicle transfers starting from the paperwork stage. Our RoRo standard ranks among the most economical options. We also have containerized transport for your high-end luxury vehicles and classics.
Cars that we ship
We move all types of vehicles from motorcycles and ATVs, standard cars and trucks, vans and minivans, SUVs, RVs and campers, boats and yachts, industrial equipment, and farm machinery.
How to prepare a car for shipping
Wash the vehicle and make a personal record of the pre-existing cosmetic damage. Use a camera to take dated photographs from all angles. You will use the same documents to make comparisons when inspecting the car on delivery. Make sure that the transporter makes a formal acknowledgment of the report on the Bill of Lading.
Do not keep any personal effects, important documents, and household goods inside the vehicle. The only things that you can leave inside the car include the jack and spare tires. The rest increase the safety risks and may violate the federal regulations.
Remove all the custom products fitted inside and outside the vehicle such as luggage racks, spoilers, radio faceplates, DVD players, TVs, GPS, ground effects, grills, and speakers. Transport these items separately to protect them from damage or losses.
If you have an inoperable vehicle, you should brief the transporter in advance so that they can prepare the right people and equipment. Use the following checklist on all running cars:
- Leave the battery on full charge and tightly secured in its bracket.
- Check and top off the fluid levels.
- Make sure that there are no leaks or mechanical problems. Let the transporter know in advance if you can’t get them fixed.
- Get the tires properly inflated.
- Run down the gas tank to a quarter-full, which will help to save on weight and cut down the safety risks.
Secure all the loose parts on the exterior to protect them from possible damage during transportation. If you have a convertible, keep the top firmly secured to shield the interior from the elements. Retract/remove the antennas and fold in the side-view mirrors.
Go to the state’s Department of Transportation and look for all the regulatory information that you might need when shipping cars to or from Townsend. Make sure that you get a set of spare keys for the truck driver and note the current mileage on the vehicle.
