Are you relocating, purchasing a vehicle or need to transport your vehicle to another state? Shipping your car can be the easiest and cheapest way to transport. Moving and planning can be overwhelming and stressful, but transporting a car from state to state can be successful by following these steps to start the process.
Compare and review auto transport companies online, to receive quotes in your local area. The cost to ship a car will vary and the dates available to schedule a driver shouldn't be your only decision. All carriers must comply with federal regulations by providing you with their license and insurance information. Search online reviews for the available car shipping companies.
The cost to ship a car to another state is determined by time of year, the distance of your move, size and weight of the vehicle, the type of transport you chose, open or enclosed and the make and model of your car.
When you secure a safe and reliable carrier, there are preparations before loading the vehicle onto a trailer. Remove your personal belongings, including your toll tag. Check the pressure on your tires, the condition of your car battery and leaking fluids. Take pictures of your vehicle along with the odometer reading and note and scratches or damage to your vehicle upon delivery. These pictures will be helpful when a claim is reported to the insurance company.
