Tips for Shipping Your Vehicle

1. Vehicle Inspection Services

Perform a full inspection of your vehicle with the shipping company, taking note of any pre-existing damage. It is usually recommended to thoroughly wash your vehicle prior to the vehicle inspection process in order to have the most accurate inspection. Take note of all dings, dents or scratches and compare these notes with the condition of the vehicle after transportation. Your driver should sign these notes confirming that he too acknowledges the current condition of the vehicle.

2. Have the Right Insurance Coverage

Different transportation companies will provide different levels of coverage. Find out what your shipping company provides, including what types of deductibles are in place and whether it is primary or secondary coverage. Secondary coverage will go through your own personal insurance company first.

3. Remove All Personal/Loose Items

The shipping company will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items during transportation. Remove all personal items and secure or remove any loose or specialty items on your vehicle (ex. spoiler, fog lights, etc).

4. Good Working Order

Your vehicle will have to be driven on and off the trailer so ensure that it is in good working order or the driver is aware of any operational problems. If your vehicle has unique driving, starting or stopping instructions, write them down for the driver so that you can guarantee no damage is done to your vehicle.
