Whether you are moving a vehicle locally, interstate or internationally it doesn’t have to be complicated. All it takes is a little preparation. Learn more from the uShip guide for preparing your car for transport. 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 type of car transportation service you will require. If price is the most important factor and the vehicle is in running condition, you may consider hiring someone to drive the car to its destination. If a drive-away service is not an option, you will need to decide between door-to-door and a terminal-to-terminal vehicle transport services.
Next, you will need to choose between different types of car carriers and select the best fit for your transportation needs. There are a variety of options ranging from big open tractor-trailers that carry up to twelve vehicles, to small enclosed movers for single cars. Your choice can affect the cost and time frame of your delivery, as well as the level of protection there will be during transport.
As soon as you have decided the method of transport, you will need to choose a transporter. Researching the different carriers that have placed bids on your listing is highly recommended. Remember to check references or feedback on previous transport jobs performed by the carrier and make sure you understand what their insurance covers. Ask the transporter what you need to do to prepare your vehicle or motorcycle for transport, and be ready for your transporter on pick-up/delivery day.
