How To Prepare Your Car For Shipping

Before you hand your vehicle off to a moving and shipping company, you need to make sure that it’s ready to be shipped. Most moving companies will tack on extra fees if the car isn’t in proper condition. Here are a few things you should check before calling your vehicle shipper.

Is your car clean?

Clear as much out of your car as possible. Wash the outside of your car. Clean as many extra items out of the car as possible, including things that normally stay in the car such as luggage racks and antennas.

Are the car’s fluids sealed?

Leaks in car fluids can cause big problems over the course of long transports. Always check all the fluid levels in your car and make sure everything is in working order.

Is your car alarm disabled?

Left on, your car alarm will cause big problems for the transport driver and can lead to long delays.

Is your documentation up to date?

You should be keeping a record of all the existing damage to your vehicle, including minor problems such as cracks in the windshield and dents. It’s a good idea to gather pictures of every part of your car to keep everyone accountable.

Types of Car Shipping We Offer

It’s important to choose the right type of shipping for your car. We offer all the main types of vehicle shipping. Depending on your needs, you might want to elect for the cheaper open transport or the more expensive enclosed transport options.
Open Transport

Open transport is the fastest and most affordable vehicle shipping. With this option, your vehicle will be secured to a truck and towed to its destination, sharing the truck with other vehicles that are being transported nearby.


Open transport is typically faster because it is a more popular option. With more open carriers on the road, chances are higher that your vehicle will get a spot fast. On the other hand, open transport carries risks of damage to your vehicle from weather, road debris, and even vandalism.

Enclosed Transport

Enclosed transport is the right option when you’re concerned that your vehicle is fully safe and secure. With enclosed transport, we provide you with a carrier for your vehicle that’s completely cut off from the outside. This removes all risk of damage to your vehicle. The downside is that enclosed transport tends to be much more expensive, but if your car is especially valuable to you then it’s worth the investment.

Shared or Unshared?

We offer both shared and single enclosed transports. A shared enclosed transport will carry your car among others to the location. This option is cheaper, but it might take a longer period to get your car to its destination, as enclosed transports aren’t as popular. With a private unshared transport, you can protect your vehicle from the elements and get it where you want it quickly, but it’s a major investment.
