Preparing Your Vehicle for Transport
Before shipping your car, there are a few things you need to do to ensure it’s ready for transport:
Clean your car: Give your vehicle a thorough wash before it’s picked up. This makes it easier to inspect for any pre-existing damage and also ensures that the car is delivered in a clean state.
Remove personal items: It’s important to remove any personal items from your car before shipping. This includes any loose items in the trunk, glove compartment, or elsewhere in the car.
Document any pre-existing damage: Before shipping your car, make sure to document any pre-existing damage. This includes taking pictures of any dents, scratches, or other imperfections.
Empty the gas tank: Most car shipping carriers require that your gas tank is no more than one-quarter full. This helps to reduce the weight of the car and ensures that there’s no risk of a fuel leak during transport.
Disable car alarms: If your car has an alarm system, make sure to disable it before shipping. This will prevent it from going off during transport and causing any unnecessary disturbance.
