Vehicle Shipping

Here is some guidance we like to offer our clients with regard to vehicle shipping.

      • 1. Before performing a vehicle shipping, we request that your car have no more than 1 / 4 of the tank of gasoline. This is sufficient enough to load the car onto and off of the hauler, but not enough to throw off the total weight of the load.
      • 2. Please ensure that none of your personal things are left in the automobile. Those things won't be included in the carrier's insurance, nor are the drivers going to claim responsibility for them.
      • 3. Please disable or switch off the alarm system in your automobile before the auto shipping.
      • 4. Vehicle shipping companies don't promise a particular delivery date, but generally a delivery "window,” in order for things such as traffic and weather conditions can be taken into consideration as possible chances for delay.
      • 5. When the vehicle is picked up, we're able to supply you with a pretty accurate window for delivery. This window is generally based on the distance between the two points and the ideal day that you’re looking to have it delivered.
      • We ask for 3 to 5 days for delivery from North to South.
      • We ask for 4 to 6 days for delivery from the Midwest to either coast.
      • 6. Our driver will fill out a bill of lading which provides one of the significant facts about the state of the automobile. This document will be signed by the individuals that are releasing and receiving the vehicle on either end.
      • 7. At the time the vehicle shipping process is coming to an end and the automobile is delivered, please have whoever is receiving the car look over the vehicle very attentively and compare the status of the car to the bill of lading which was signed at pick up to ensure that it's still in the same condition. Report any damages to your dispatch representative so that further action and the appropriate stops can be taken.
      • 8. Just about all car shipping companies require a deposit in advance on Visa, MasterCard, Amex or Discover. You'll receive an invoice via e-mail for this particular payment. The remaining balance will be paid at the time the vehicle is received. The driver will take cash, money order or cashier's check. Because the driver often doesn't have a credit card merchant machine on hand while he is in transit, credit card isn't generally recommended at the time of delivery.
