Shipping a Car Tips

Shipping a car as part of a long-distance move could be expensive, but also a good investment. People who cannot drive their own vehicles to their new homes, or who have too many vehicles to do so reasonably, can have their vehicles shipped using a professional service. With these tips, people who are moving can reduce their workload as they prepare to relocate to a new area.

Shipping a car across the country is an expensive process, but also a wise investment option. Shipping a car is suitable for people who cannot drive to their destination, or have many vehicles to move. By using Intercity Auto Movers, you are guaranteed professional service. Here are a few tips for people who are moving to a new area and require the services of an auto shipper:

#1. Get a Few Quotes and Shop Around

There are many options available when shipping a car. You could choose to ship via a car towing service, train, or hire a driver. Get quotes on all the options and see which one best suits your budget and needs.

#2. Understand the Process

Once you hand over your car for loading, you are handing over your second biggest investment. It is best to enquire from the shipping company what the whole process entails for peace of mind. Here are a few things you should ask the shipping company:

  • When will they pick up the car?
  • How long the transporter expects delivery to be?
  • What is all included in the fee?
  • Is the company registered with the Department of Transport?
  • What services are available e.g. Door-to-door and VIP

#3.  Inspect Your Vehicle

The worst feeling in the world is collecting your car and finding a new dent or scratch on it. The only way to be sure that this is new damage is to do your own inspection before and after delivery. The best way to do this is by taking clear photos of your car during loading and after. Cars that are in storage awaiting delivery might have flat batteries. Always ensure that your battery is not an old one.
