Using Wheaton, MI Vehicle Transport Companies
Document Vehicle Condition - Before your car is loaded onto the carrier by the company you’ve hired to move it, they will note and document the condition. This information, as well as other details of the shipment, will be included on a document called the bill of lading. The information contained on the bill of lading can come into play if you need to file a claim against a shipper for any damages to your vehicle, or if they did not fulfill their part of the contract. As a result, it’s very important that you carefully review the information contained on the bill of lading to make sure it’s accurate. In some cases, it’s a good idea to make your own notes about the condition of your vehicle. If you have a classic, vintage, or luxury car, we recommend taking pictures as part of your own documentation.
International Auto Transport - It’s one thing when you need a car moved across the state or a few states away, but what about when you need it shipped to another country? The good news is that there are plenty of shippers that offer overseas and international service; the bad news is that you need be cautious about which one you pick. When shipping a car to another county, you want to make sure not only that the company you’re dealing with has experience, but also has specific experience shipping to the area you need service to. There are many laws, regulations and import taxes that can affect the price and timeframe of international car shipping and a less experienced company may ask that you bear with them as they figure it out. The bottom line: if you need a car delivered to another country, make sure your carrier knows the ropes.
Information You’ll Need
Before contacting companies to get a price quote, you should have some basic information ready. In order to get the most accurate price estimate possible, an auto shipper will need the following information:
- Type of vehicle, including make, model & year
- Vehicle location and destination
- Timeframe for delivery and pickup
- Type of carrier required: open or enclosed
- If short-term storage or additional insurance are needed
- Your contact info: phone or email
- Any customizations or additions to the vehicle
With just this basic information, there’s no limit to how many price quotes you can get before deciding on a shipper. Be sure to ask about discount programs as well since many companies offer price breaks for students, military, retirees, snowbirds, multi-car shipments and returning customers.
