Car Shipping The Right Way to Prepare for Your Vehicle Transport

When you’ve scheduled a pickup for your vehicle shipping transport, you have lots of questions:

  • Can I load my luggage in the back seat?
  • Full tank of gas or empty?
  • Can my bike rack stay on?

These are great questions to get answers to when you’re preparing to transport your vehicle on an open or enclosed carrier. Our vehicles are important to us financially and sentimentally. So it’s important to understand what is needed to ready your vehicle for shipment. The goal is for you and your vehicle to be prepared and protected so your car shipping experience is exactly what you expect.

To help understand what you need to do before the car carrier shows up, plus what is needed on the day of pickup, we’ve put together a detailed checklist to help you prepare. Working together, we can make the hand-off quick and complete ensuring that everyone is doing their part to make your delivery on time and trouble-free.

Check out our detailed “Preparing Your Vehicle for Shipping” checklist. You’ll find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had like:

  • Do I need a second set of keys?
  • What documentation do I need?
  • What’s a Bill of Lading?

Take the time to review the list and follow all items that relate to your transport – whether for a car, truck, or motorcycle. If you have a more exotic delivery, say a boat or a classic vehicle, give us a call and we can talk more about special transport preparations.

Our goal is for you to be completely prepared for delivery and secure that your vehicle is prepped and ready for a safe, secure transport. If you have more questions, we’re just a phone call away and will be happy to answer as many questions you may have.
