In most cases, your vehicle shipment will go smoothly and safely with no damage or problems. However, there are some instances where problems occur in transit. If this happens, you'll need to take up a damage claim with your shipper or insure. Have on hand a record of what changed between the time you handed the vehicle over for shipping and the time it arrived at its destination. Start by cleaning the vehicle before shipping (so that you can see any existing damage easily) and document its condition with a camera and date the pictures; make notes of any existing scratches or dents. When you arrive to pick up the vehicle, photograph it again. Go over your notes and cross-reference them with the current state of your vehicle to make sure no new points of damage can be seen.
