Getting the Vehicle Ready

Regardless of what type of vehicle is being transported, you will want to make sure that you prepare it the way it is meant to be. There should be no more than a quarter tank of fuel, as this would add more weight to the automobile. If there is an alarm, this must also be disabled.

Clean the vehicle out and make sure that it back to its original form. Don’t leave anything in the vehicle that doesn’t belong there. Only the floor mats and a spare tire should be kept in the vehicle.

Before you take the vehicle to a terminal or it gets picked up, give it an inspection to take pictures and jot down any damages. Then, you can use this information to help you with the final inspection to make sure that there was no damage done to the vehicle during the transport.


Inspecting the Vehicle after Its Transport

After a vehicle’s transport, you should give it an inspection immediately. If you notice any damage, inform the driver who will fill out and have you sign a report. This will make it so that you can file an insurance claim.

It is also wise to take your vehicle to a mechanic to see if they find anything else. If they find further damages, ask them if it could have been caused by the shipping process. Make sure you handle any problems with the auto transport company at this point.
