Car Shipping: Common Questions About Transporting Your Vehicle

Answering Your Top Car Shipping Questions

Transporting your car, truck, motorcycle, or boat can be a daunting task, and it’s only natural to have a lot of questions. You’re entrusting your valuable property to a professional, and you want to ensure that it’s in safe hands. In this article, we’ll address some common questions about car shipping to help put your mind at ease.

Can I ship my non-operational vehicle?

If your vehicle doesn’t run, you might be wondering if it can still be shipped. The answer is yes, but it will come with additional fees. Shipping an inoperable vehicle requires extra effort, expertise, and specialized equipment, but reputable car shipping companies can handle it with ease.

Can I load personal items in my vehicle?

It’s important to note that your vehicle must be free of personal property during shipping due to insurance limitations. The car shipping company will not be liable for any missing or damaged personal property that is not part of the vehicle.

Will anyone drive my vehicle during the car shipping process?

The only driving that should occur is for loading and unloading purposes. Additionally, if you’ve chosen “terminal-to-terminal” shipping, your vehicle may need to be off-loaded and driven to a parking spot at the terminal. To protect against any potential abuse, the mileage of your car must be noted at the time of pickup.

Should I obtain extra insurance for auto transport?

A reputable car shipping company should have insurance that covers all costs in the event of damage, total loss, or theft during transport. It’s important to request a copy of the carrier’s insurance and ask pertinent questions to ensure that your property is properly covered during transport.
