Craigslist Auto Shipping
When you need to transport your vehicle you bought on Craigslist, you have a few options: your car can be towed, driven or loaded into a car carrier. If the car is not in working condition, driving it is not an option. When shipping an inoperable car, you may incur additional transportation fees; especially if there is difficulty loading it onto a trailer or tow dolly, or the wheels aren't highway ready.
There are many options for shipping your car, from large multi-vehicle transport trailers, to single-car “hot-shot” transport. After you know what car transport service you prefer for your Craigslist vehicle move, use uShip to find safe and reliable auto transport. Confirm each vehicle shipping company’s legal carrier status and credentials by checking their USDOT or MC numbers, found on their uShip profile, against records at The Department of Transportation. You should also inquire about insurance and review their profile for feedback and comments.
Communicate with the transportation company so they know that they will be picking the vehicle up from the Craigslist seller’s home or business. If you are unable to be present during the move, you will need someone you trust to complete and sign off on the pre-shipment or post-shipment inspections. Transportation companies will check out your automobile and give you a condition report, which is very important if you have to make an insurance claim later on.
