How can I prepare my automobile for transport?


  • There should be less than 1/4 tank of gas
  • Wash your vehicle – this will allow you to view any possible dents or scratches for the shipping report.
  • Taking pre- and post-shipment photos is a great idea – helpful to compare with shipping report upon arrival
  • Clean the inside of your vehicle – remove anything that is not secured.
  • Disconnect your alarm – the carrier will be happy.
  • Check your tire pressure – decreases the risk of damage both before and after shipping
  • Check for any leaks or drips – a shipping company will decline to transport if you have any leaks.
  • Remove any modifications – these would be custom accessories, such as a spoiler – it makes it harder to place on a truck
