Three Major Steps to Follow After Hiring a Car Transporter

After hiring a car transporter, there are three important steps to follow to ensure a smooth and safe transportation process. 

First, make sure to thoroughly inspect your vehicle before it is loaded onto the transporter. Take photos of any existing damage or imperfections and make note of them. This will help you document the condition of your car before and after transport.  

Remove any personal belongings from your vehicle. Transporters are not responsible for any lost or damaged items left inside the car during transport. It is also important to ensure that your gas tank is less than a quarter full to reduce the weight of the vehicle during transport.  

Make sure to communicate with the transporter regarding the pick-up and delivery times and locations. Be sure to provide accurate contact information so that the transporter can easily reach you if necessary. 

Next, Be ready for the original inspection before going to hand over the car. In the report, there should be details such as pick-up and delivery details, the exact condition of your car, tire conditions, current mileage of your car, etc. Once you have completed the final report you need to save it.

Finally, you received your car at your delivery location inspect your car according to the final inspection report. Try to avoid receiving your car at the time of night unless you have proper lighting to inspect your car.

Never try to argue with the driver or any staff about your damages. If you have any complaints, you should say to directly shipping company who will handle your claim. You should keep patience in this situation and contact the shipping company to fix the damages.
