You could be moving to a new state, or maybe you found our perfect vehicle on the other side of the country, no matter what the reason, uShip can help you find the perfect carrier to ship your vehicle across country to its destination. When moving a car across country, there are some things to take into consideration for a smooth and safe delivery.
First, you will want to make sure your chosen car transportation service will have enough liability and cargo insurance to give you peace of mind. You can check this by asking them for their MC (Motor Carrier) Number and DOT (Department of Transportation) Number. You can then compare this to the FMCSA’s SAFER Company Snapshot to see what kind of insurance they have on file with the government. You can also ask them for a copy of their insurance card once you’ve decided to work with a specific carrier.
Figure out what kind of transport service works for your delivery. Shipping your vehicle across country, you may want to investigate enclosed transport as an option. This service is a little more expensive than open transport, but it provides extra protection for long distance shipping. The next thing you’ll want to do is prepare your car for transportation. Take your time in doing so, and if the vehicle isn’t in your possession, help the seller to prepare the vehicle to ensure a safe delivery.
