Ensure the truck to be transported

Let your insurance company know about shipment details for your truck. You should be prepared for anything, including:

  • potential road accidents
  • Theft or damage

Your insurance agent will be able to advise and give information on supplemental insurance- if required.

Choose a Date to transport the truck

You may have more or less an idea of when you will move your truck. It is suggested that you pick an exact date for your delivery. An exact time of delivery is needed to get transportation quotes for moving your truck. Some transporters are flexible and will accommodate you, but it is always best to give at least 7 days’ notice.

Date of arrival for truck delivery inspection

A lot can happen while your truck is in transit – so be there when it is delivered. Inspect the truck once it is unloaded off the trailer. Check it from bottom to top to make sure it wasn’t damaged during the move. The driver should present you with a copy of the transport contract for your to sign. Inspect your truck before signing – otherwise, you will be liable for the damage.
