Auto Transport Safety Tips

Check Your T’s and C’s

Before you sign anything insist on seeing a copy of the auto transport "Terms and Conditions" from the back page of their Bill of Lading, It is a good idea to see the Bill of Lading legal terms of the auto transporter or auto transportation broker before you book your order and place your deposit. Don’t wait until the point of Pick up!

Get a Thorough Vehicle Inspection
The original Bill of Lading is a record of the inspection of your car at pick up; it is to be signed by both you and the driver after the inspection. At the car shipping delivery, the car is inspected again by the driver with you or your agent, both parties sign again, noting if there are any changes. If there is damage, it must be noted on the car shipping delivery Bill of Lading before you sign. Any claim must then be filed within 2 weeks. In the event of damage, you must complete the payment of your auto shipping COD at delivery and then send your request for claim application.

Don’t be Sold on Delivery Guarantees

Any company that leads you to believe that they will pick up or deliver on an exact date, is not being completely honest. Due to the state by state taxation and inspections on car carrier transportation and the stringent auto shipping safety laws of the Department of Transportation governing the specifics and peculiarities of auto shipping, auto moving, auto transport, car shipping, car moving, car transport, auto relocation and vehicle transportation, exact pick ups and deliveries can not be guaranteed. In support of the movers however, car transport pick up and delivery estimate windows hold true on 80% to 95% of all orders.

When Door-to-Door is NOT Door-to-Door
Many cities have restrictions on large trucks that prohibit them from driving into some residential areas. Transport trucks are 70-75 foot long, and need lots of room to maneuver and turn around, so if access to your home is restricted by narrow streets, low-hanging trees, speed bumps or tight turns, the driver may ask that you meet the truck at a large parking lot nearby, such as a grocery store, school, or shopping mall.
