How to Plan Vehicle Shipping

how to plan vehicle shipping

Learning how to plan vehicle shipping can be a daunting task. You may be surprised to find out, that finding a reliable auto shipping company is not enough. You need to prepare your vehicle before having it shipped. To ensure safe, damage-free transport and delivery, we recommend following several simple guidelines.

So you already know the first available shipping date. What do you need to do?

  • Remove all the valuable items from your vehicle, including adds-n, such as custom stereos, DVD players, front and rear cameras, etc. By doing this, you will eliminate the chances of theft and damage.
  • Wash your vehicle. It will also enable you to better inspect your vehicle against any scratches, paint chips and discoloration.
  • Inspect your vehicle against any damages, take a photo if you find any and mark it on the Bill of Lading (BOL)
  • Remove or secure loose parts. For example, you need to remove your antenna and put it in the trunk. Additionally, you need to fold the mirror vehicles.
  • Check the maintenance of your vehicle. We will ship your vehicle whether it is running or non-running. In any case, you need to report us about the vehicle functionality (mileage and existing damages). If there are any mechanical issues (leakage, under-recharged battery), it may slow down the shipping process.
  • Your gas tank should be ¼ full.
  • For your own safety, we recommend our drivers to have an extra set of keys.

By following these steps, you will significantly reduce the risk of any damage and ensure a secure transportation.
