Moving a car can be a tough thing to organize. Knowing what to look for in a service that offers to move your car for you is not always an easy task, especially if you have never made such a move before. The good news is that there are a few handy tips to make sure that your attempt to move your car to your new home is a successful one.
One good tip is to make sure that you perform an external inspection of your car before the relocation. Car movers will make a similar inspection before they begin to cover themselves against being blamed for damages that they were not responsible for. This makes it all the more important for you to make your own personal inspection before you take your vehicle to the car mover in order to protect yourself in the event that any damage results from the car mover being of a dishonest nature. Things that you should look out for include cracks in taillights, cracks in windscreens, obvious body damage, paint damage and rock damage.
Another good tip is to choose open air shipping when you want to obtain maximum value. This is by far the most common way of transporting an automobile and involves vehicles being placed in the back of an open trailer that can carry up to a dozen vehicles.
When maximum protection is your biggest desire, closed crate shipping is the way to go. Closed crate shipping means that your car will be protected against any and all external elements.
