Whatever may be the reason you are shipping your vehicle, that experience can go more smoothly if you get to know these simple tips on car shipping basics. This is the reason why we decided to share some valuable information about auto transport across the USA with you. One of the best car shipping companies in the US, Vehicle Haul, gave us some insider tips when shipping a vehicle, and we’re sharing them with you.

1.   Research Broker or Carrier Route

When deciding on your car shipping partner, you may choose to go with a broker or work directly with a car shipping company that, in this context, is known as a carrier. Both options have their pros and cons, and it is up to you to choose depending on your specific needs and particular shipping situation.

Brokers offer more options at a possibly cheaper rate. But on the other hand, working directly with a carrier enables you to be connected to customer service along the way. This aspect is vital for most people since it can give you peace of mind in the already delicate process of moving your valuable possessions.

2.   Be Diligent About the Insurance

A good car shipping company will have its own liability insurance policy, and you can ask to take a look at it before you approach closing a deal. Especially if you are shipping your car cross-country, the road brings its challenges, and you need to be absolutely positive your vehicle will be in good hands if something goes wrong. In addition, there are protocols in place to protect your property.

3.   Choose Your Preferred Shipping Method

The most important thing here to remember is you have options. You may choose the enclosed or open car shipping method. Which one is better for you depends solely on your preferences. Discuss it with your car shipping partner. For example, if you choose the open shipping method, you may ask whether your shipping partner uses chains or more gentle nylon straps to secure the vehicle on a trailer.

4.   Design Your Schedule, Pick Up, and Delivery Destinations

There are many options; discuss your preferences with your shipping partner. They may have their terminal if they are a local company. Your pick-up and drop-off locations will influence your price quote. Most carriers will offer a time window for your shipment since shipping a car may be affected by unforeseen factors. This window may be between 5 and 7 days.

5.   Prepare Your Car for Shipping

Know your vehicle’s state inside and out before entrusting it to someone else’s hands. Take photos of the interior, and exterior, have your mechanic look at it, clean your car, and remove your personal belongings. Of course, you can still ship a vehicle if you have some stuff inside, but you better check the rules and possible risks before deciding.  Whatever the state of your car may be, the most important thing is to have a mutual understanding of its state before and after its transport.
