    Auto Shipping Auto Shipping Scheduling:car moving auto transport
    Schedule your auto shipping at least 4 weeks before you move, giving
    enough time to arrange for a car mover carrier to pick up your
    vehicle. Basically, the more advance time the better. If you are not
    available, please arrange an alternative authorized party such as
    neighbor, friend or relative you can trust to transfer the car to the
    car mover.

    Most automobile shippers offer door-to-door service. However, in many
    residential neighborhoods it may be difficult to drive in a large
    truck carrying your vehicle. Because of potential difficulty in
    getting the truck into your neighborhood, the car mover may ask you to
    meet them at a nearby local shopping center or garage for pick up of
    your vehicle. The same will apply for the delivery.

    Make sure your car is adequately insured by the car mover for
    relocation. Upon pick-up, the driver will do a condition report (bill
    of lading) for any scratches or damages on the vehicle which should be
    signed by both parties. The same will occur upon delivery; make sure
    you check vehicle before signing. Reporting any damages or claims at a
    later time is not advisable.

    Personal Items

    Do not leave personal possessions of any kind in your car. Of course
    spare tires, car jacks, and other standard items that can be found in
    a trunk of a new car are not a problem. Make sure anything left in the
    car is tied down securely.

    Auto Shipping Delivery

    Make sure that if you or an authorized party is not available to
    receive your car, that it will be stored in a secure storage facility
    where you will be able to pick it up at a more convenient time. This
    may be subject to additional charges.

    Specifics on Auto Transport

    Auto Shipping Cost

    When working with a Car Mover, confirm what the total cost of the
    shipping will be. As you obtain quotes from several car transport and
    auto shipping companies, be prepared to provide:


    approximate departure date

    type of vehicle(s)

    type of car transport service desired (e.g., door-to-door car
    transport vs. terminal-to-terminal)

    special car mover or auto shipping requests (eg., deliver at a
    location other than your home vs. at your home)

    Paying For Shipping Your Vehicle

    While some car movers and auto shippers may not require payment in
    advance, others require a deposit, or full payment in advance. If a
    deposit is given, amount due is always required at time of delivery -
    oftentimes with a cashier's check or cash. If full payment is required
    prior to car transport or auto shipping service, consider using a
    credit card so that charges may be disputed if circumstances warrant
    such actions.

    Make Sure You Are Properly Insured

    Your vehicle should be insured against damage and theft by your car
    transport or auto shipping company. Ask for a copy of the car mover's
    insurance coverage. Find out how the car mover's insurance works with
    your own insurance in the event of damage during car transport.
    Additionally, find out if there is any kind of damage deductible and
    the amount. Everything pertaining to the car move should be in
    writing. Your own car insurance policy may cover your vehicle in
    transit; make sure to contact your insurance company to find out. It
    is advisable that you do not leave any personal items in your car when
    it is shipped; items left in the car may not be covered by your
    homeowner's insurance policy.

    Get Dates - Pick Up and Delivery

    Get the estimated pick-up and delivery dates and times from your car
    mover or auto shipping company. Make sure to get a 3 day guaranteed
    window for the pick-up and delivery dates of your car, as suggested
    earlier get everything in writing. Once pick-up is made, your car
    mover or auto shipping company should be able to provide you with a
    specific delivery date. If you require a specific date for pick-up,
    many car moving and auto shipping companies can accommodate you and
    store your car at a terminal for an additional charge.

    Check Car Moving References

    It is important to verify the good standing and valid licensing of any
    car moving company or auto shipping service. verify that the shipper's
    license is valid and active with the appropriate transportation agency
    (such as the state or federal Department Of Transportation).
    Affordable Moving Company does its best to make sure that we list only
    quality service providers. However, we cannot guarantee the quality of
    service of any car moving or auto shipping company. It is important
    that you take the time to check references and get all services agreed
    to by the company in writing.

    Inspect Your Car Before Auto Shipping

    It is advisable that in addition to receiving a condition report
    document from your car mover detailing any pre-existing damage to your
    car, that you take photographs of the car, date the photos, and attach
    them to the condition report provided by the car mover for your
    records. You must have a detailed description of the condition of your
    car prior to shipping. The condition report or other document used by
    the car mover should include: current mileage, pre-existing damage of
    any type including: glass, scratches, paint, dents, and so on. This
    report is important in case any disputes arise.

    Vehicle Delivery Inspection and Acceptance

    When your car is delivered, make sure to methodically inspect your
    car. Use the condition report given to you at pick up and go over all
    of the details. Look for damage not on the original report. Check for
    changes in mileage and check every part of your car carefully
    including the roof and under your car. Look for obvious damage or
    changes to the car's condition that may have occurred during the
    shipping. If there are any discrepancies, make sure to note them on
    the condition report you received on pick-up of the car, and have the
    driver sign the document. Please be advised that you should avoid
    accepting your vehicle at night or at a location that does not permit
    you easy access to inspecting all parts of your car. It is absolutely
    essential that you perform a thorough examination of your car as
    described above. Remember that once you have accepted your car, your
    signed documentation is what protects you. If problems arise,
    reputable car moving and auto shipping companies will work out
    disputes with you in an amicable fashion, but you must have
    documentation. Nationwide International and
