The Car Transport Basics


Sometimes we are offered work or other opportunities in different states or overseas. The distance may be too far to comfortably or practically drive, or the location you are moving to may be in another country.


For those that own and drive an automobile, this often means that you must transport your car to your new home.


Be Prepared


Don't leave shipping your car to the very last minute. This is a process that requires research, preparation and planning.


Research an appropriate company and book them in advance. Remove all personal and valuable items from your vehicle, including head units if they are detachable.


Thoroughly check your vehicle prior to shipping, make sure that you are appropriately insured and that your insurance company is aware of the shipping process as it may affect your premium.




Shipping a car is not the cheapest endeavour.


Make sure that you have enough money to book the shipping and pay for any associated costs such as permits and regulations.


Shop around for different quotes but be aware of potential scams. You could even try and haggle, as these companies are competitive and want your business!


Another option is to get all your shipping, home and car, by the same company. They may offer you a package deal or discount.


Expect a Wait


Estimated times of arrival are just that, estimates. While in an ideal world everything and everyone would be prompt and punctual, this simply isn't the case. Especially when large freight ships, weather and wild oceans are involved.


Don't rely on having your car arrive precisely when you expect it to, give a few days or even a week or so leeway just in case.


Hire a Car in the Meantime


A good idea would be to have a hire car arranged for at your destination for the time spent waiting for your own automobile to arrive.


Book this at the same time that you are booking the car transport, and ensure that the cost of this is included in the budget that you set when following the above tip. This ensures that you can get whatever you need to do done without the inconvenience of not having a car at your disposal.


Good luck with your car transport journey, following the above tips will ensure that a frustrating process is made all the more easier for you.
