Transport services offered in Yuma
There are a lot of complex processes and regulations involved when sending a vehicle overseas. We have enough experience handling such matters to offer you the best solutions in customs clearance, paperwork preparation, and transportation:
- Our roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) standard offers one of the most economical transport solutions. The RoRoships have built-in ramps where the automobiles get driven along (rolled) during the loading and unloading.
- Containerized transport helps to secure the highly prized vehicles and possessions from possible damage by seaside hazards. You can save money by opting for a shared container or get more room for your personal effects using a dedicated one.
Open-air shipping is the best solution when you simply want to move an inexpensive vehicle at the lowest cost possible. We can use a flatbed truck for the distances that fall below 500 miles. Multi-car trailers help in transferring 8-11 cars on a long trip across the country.
Highly expensive vehicles may need special care and attention throughout the transportation process. We recommend the enclosed shipping option, which offers the following benefits:
- A fully covered carriage to shield the vehicles from the elements and roadside hazards
- Hydraulic lift gates to load and unload the cars with a low ground clearance
- An air-compressed suspension system to allow for smooth riding on rough terrain
- Non-abrasive straps to secure the vehicle without damaging the exterior
When you live in Colorado, you can choose a convenient terminal across the state for the drop-off or pickup when shipping cars to or from Yuma. We can also send it to your residence or office on the door-to-door arrangement.
Types of cars that we ship
We have reliable transport solutions for motorcycles, ATVs, boats, trucks, vans, farm machinery, and project cargo.
How to prepare a car for shipping
Most transporters enforce a strict prohibition on placing personal items inside the vehicle. Find out from their policy about the list of allowable items. You cannot keep household goods inside the car due to safety and regulatory concerns.
Giving the vehicle a thorough wash will help you to run a flawless inspection process. Make a record of all the chips, dents, and discolorations. Use a camera to take dated photographs of all sides of the car.
Run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank. It is a recommended level that lowers the vehicle’s weight and helps to cut down the safety risks.
Try to remove all the custom accessories to protect them from possible damage or loss during the transportation. Aftermarket DVD players, speakers, TVs, GPS, spoilers, fog lights, and ground effects do not fall under protection by the transit insurance.
Use protective padding to secure the non-detachable parts on the exterior. Fold in the side-view mirrors and remove/retract the antenna. If you have a convertible, make sure that you secure the top to protect the interior from possible damage.
Keep the car in good shape for driving by running the following maintenance checks.
- Top off the brake fluid, coolant, engine oil, and transmission fluid.
- Check your tires to make sure that they have enough pressure.
- Get the fluid leaks and other mechanical problems fixed.
- Keep the battery on a full charge and make sure that the terminals work.
- Prepare a detailed list of the unsolved mechanical issues and special operating instructions needed to handle the vehicle.
Disable the alarm system to keep it from triggering off during transportation. Deactivate the toll tags to keep them from accumulating unnecessary charges along the highway. Prepare a spare set of keys that you will hand over to the truck driver at the collection.
