What is an inspection or condition report?

The Vehicle Condition Report is a part of the auto shipper’s Bill of Lading. The Car Transport 5 point inspection documents the condition of your vehicle at the time the auto shipping Driver takes custody of it. Before the car transport driver loads your vehicle, he will fill out an auto shipping 5 point inspection that will note the condition of the vehicle at the time he receives it. The Shipper, (thats you) or your authorized agent will need to verify the notations made and sign that you are in agreement with them. The Shipper (again you) should receive a copy of this auto transport 5 point inspection before the vehicle leaves the point of origin. Claims of damage at destination will be based on the condition of your vehicle, as reported, before it was transported.
