Shipping a Car to Weirton
A few key points to remember when shipping a car to Weirton:
Packing personal items inside the car
When you are shipping a car, everything should be removed from inside the car. The only thing covered by cargo insurance will be the car. Personal items can add weight to the vehicle that can increase shipping cost as well as cause the driver to have an overweight load and face a possible fine. Also, due to insurance regulations, if any personal items were damaged or lost during transport they would not be replaced or repaired by the auto transporter.
All transporters must carry valid insurance to cover the vehicles they haul. The coverage will range in amount depending on the company but it is required to cover the vehicle from bumper to bumper. Many companies only carry enough to cover what the Kelly Blue Book value of the vehicle would be. If you need more coverage you may be able to pay to upgrade the coverage. If not, you can always add a private insurance policy that can be used while the vehicle is being transported.
Paperwork is very important when using a professional auto transporter to relocate a vehicle. When you call to get a price quote, be sure to get it in writing if possible. If you sign any paperwork you will want to get every paper printed. Many transporters have shipping contracts that they require customers to sign. You need to read all of the contracts before you sign it. When the vehicle is inspected when it is picked up and delivered, you need to make sure the inspection notes are accurate before signing the Bill of Lading.
When you are having a car transported to a new area, you should be sure to check the area out before the vehicle arrives. If the car is being delivered to a shipping terminal, you will need to find out where the nearest gas station is located so you can fill the car up when it arrives. You will also need to get the vehicle registered locally, get a local driver’s license and change your voter’s registration card to a local address.
