A day or two before your car is shipped, give it a good cleaning so you can identify any damage prior to shipping. Document any existing scratches, dings, and rust spots with a digital camera so that you have a record of the car's condition prior to shipping. Empty the car of personal belongings because they may not be insured if lost in transit, and may become loose and damage the interior. Some Service Providers will allow you to transport a few lightweight objects in the trunk of your vehicle. Also, remove any third-party equipment like fog lights, ski and bike racks or spoilers. Most Service Providers recommend that you leave the gas tank less than half full and be sure to deactivate the car alarm.
