The Process of Shipping a Vehicle
We know that shipping a car can be a bit of a confusing experience if you have never done it before. You may have no idea where to start or even what options are available to you. This is understandable, and that is why we will always do whatever we can to make it easier. To begin with, you need to try and:
The first thing you need to try and do is perform any maintenance. If you are transporting a vehicle that is inoperable, then it is a good idea to inform the transport company about this as you will not be able to drive the car on and off the truck as you might need to. If your car is in working condition, then you will need to check it over for any leaks. Now would be the time for you to check for any mechanical issues too while topping off your fluids. If you do see a leak, then be sure to have it repaired before your car is picked up. You also need to try and check your tire pressure. They should be inflated properly prior to the shipment date. Your battery should be charged, and your car’s fluids, including your coolant, brake, oil, washer, and power steering should also be topped up.
Empty your Tank
You have to remember that your car is going to be transported in a carrier. It is not going to be driven, so filling up your tank right before shipment is not required. If you fill up your car with gas, then this will be a lot of extra weight for the carrier and this can add to the cost. If you want to avoid this, then leave around a quarter tank of gas in your car as this will help you to drive it on and off the transportation truck without issue.
Protect your car as well as your accessories by removing them beforehand. You will need to remove any retractable antennas as well as your rooftop box or your luggage rack. If you can do this, then your car will be safer, and you may also find that you can make it lighter for the journey.
Lock your Car
You will have to give your keys to the car transportation company so they can drive it onto the transporter. Your driver may also need a set of keys in case any adjustments have to be made. Make sure that you do not give the driver your only set of keys and make sure that you have a spare to hand, just in case.
Types of Transport we Offer
We understand that your car is quite possibly one of the biggest investments that you will make in your lifetime. That is why we always make sure that we offer a range of transport options, so you can choose one that suits your budget requirements as well as the requirements of your family.
Open Auto Carriers
There are a lot of different open auto carriers that you can choose from. Usually, it comes down to three different types. You have a two-level carrier, which is the most popular choice, and you have a single-level carrier too. This type of car hauler is normally used when moving more luxurious vehicles, or for those who require an expedited delivery. The third option would be a dully truck. This is a single-level trailer. This transport type is normally good for short-distance or even local deliveries.
Enclosed Car Carriers
When it comes to enclosed car carriers, you should know that there are hard-sided trailers and there are soft-sided trailers. You also have the option of choosing a multi-car trailer, a one-car trailer or a two-car trailer. If you opt for a multi-car enclosed trailer, then you should know that this can hold up to seven different cars. If you do want to opt for an enclosed trailer, then this will be the most inexpensive choice. One-car or two-car trailers as you can imagine, are more expensive. If you are transporting a valuable vehicle, then this is probably the option you would go with but it is a good idea to compare the cost of the vehicle against the cost of the trailer so you can make sure that you are making the best choice possible.
