• Wash your car carefully even if it is going to be shipped on an open trailer. You would like to note any damage, dings, nicks or other cosmetic damage correctly.
• Take away all the personal objects from your car. The majorities of the car shipping companies are not licensed for items and therefore cannot officially carry any personal items in cars which they transport. It will also not possible to cover these personal items in insurance.
• Put the car alarm out of action. It is not possible to be experienced in all of the alarm systems available these days, make it easy on the company and put it out of action.
• Don't fill your gas tank fully; keep it low, in between 1/8th to 1/4th of a tank as this saves a little weight which the transporters be pleased about.
• Please ensure to lock or take away any loose parts or specialty objects from your car like ground effects, spoilers, fog lights. If you have broad mirrors just fold them back and take out the antennae if possible.
• Always try to ship convertibles with the top and protected appropriately. Make efforts to seal any holes or open seams in the top to stop air or moisture from causing any type of harm to your car. If you are not able to raise the top, you should try to cover it with a safe fitting canvas that can defend against high winds.
• Just be ensured that the battery is fully charged and the tires have suitable inflation. Cars seeping out oil and specially brake or transmission fluid should never be on the top of a two deck open trailer. This is to avoid dripping onto the paint of cars below.
To make sure any claims of car damage are correct and enforceable, make a complete report of any pre-existing damage your car may have.
