Preparing your Car for Transport
Transporting a car or other vehicle doesn’t have to be an ordeal. All it takes is a little preparation. By starting several weeks ahead of time, you can adequately prepare your car for delivery and get quotes from reputable car transporters that can provide the service you need.
Begin by deciding what sort of car transportation service you will use. If price is the most important factor and the vehicle is in working condition, consider hiring someone to drive the car to its destination. If this is not an option, you will need to decide between door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal vehicle transport services.
Next, you will need to choose between different types of trucks and transport trailers and select the best fit for your transport needs. The options can vary quite a bit, from big open tractor-trailers that carry up to twelve vehicles, to small, enclosed lorries for single cars. Your choice can affect the cost and time needed for your delivery, as well as how protected your vehicle is during transport.
As soon as you have decided how your vehicle will be transported, you will need to choose a haulier. It is recommended that you research car transporters before you choose one. Remember to check references or feedback on previous courier jobs performed and make sure you understand what your insurance covers. Ask the haulier what you need to do to prepare your vehicle or motorcycle for transport, and be ready for your transporter on moving day.
