Tips for Transporting Your Truck with a Professional Company

If you drive a large truck, such as a Ford F-350 or Chevrolet Silverado, you may not think you have many options for shipping your vehicle. Even those who drive minivans or utility vans might believe that the vehicles are simply too big or too heavy to ship.

American Car Transporters is experienced in handling all types of vehicles, from shipping boats to transporting sports cars. A truck is just another vehicle, which means it can be transported in the same way any another vehicle can be.

Types of Trucks We Can Transport

Some types of large vehicles and trucks that can be shipped:

– Utility vans
– Fire trucks
– Classic trucks
– Box trucks
– Dump trucks
– SUVs
– Campers
– RVs

Pickup trucks and SUVs are common on the road, but in some cases, they might also be used for a personal business. If you own a classic, such as a 1950s Ford F100, it might be a vehicle you do not drive often. A truck transport company can help you get your truck to the right place safely and on time.

Truck Transport Tips

First, begin by finding an accredited auto transport company that can ship your vehicle. Next, ask about the company’s liability insurance coverage and check with your own insurance to see what is covered in the event of a transporting issue along the way.

Some other tips for transporting your truck:

– Wash the truck and clean the inside; remove anything that is not secured to the truck
– Disable the alarm
– Avoid filling up your gas tank, it’ll just add more weight
– Check for any mechanical issues prior to transport, including noticeable leaks
– Check the tires for proper inflation
– Inspect your vehicle for any damage before it’s loaded onto the transporting truck

If it’s your first time shipping your truck, read the contract carefully and ask the transporter to answer all of your questions. If you need your vehicle for work, be sure you receive an estimated pick-up and delivery time so that you have the vehicle in time to get back to work.

Truck transport is a great alternative to the driving the vehicle yourself. Whether you’re moving to a new city or to show your classic off at a car show, many truck transport options are available with American Car Transporters.
