Step 1: Clean and Inspect Your Vehicle

Start by giving your vehicle a thorough clean, both inside and out. Remove any personal items and ensure the interior is free from loose objects. Next, inspect your car for any existing damage and take photos or videos as documentation before shipment.

Step 2: Empty the Tank and Secure Loose Parts

For safety reasons, it’s recommended to have no more than a quarter tank of fuel in your vehicle during transport. Additionally, remove any aftermarket accessories or loose parts that could potentially detach during transit.

Step 3: Disable Alarms and Prepare Keys

Disable any alarms or anti-theft devices in your vehicle to avoid unnecessary disruptions during transport. Provide a spare set of keys to the auto transport company, including keys for any locked compartments or accessories.

Step 4: Inform the Auto Transport Company

Communicate any specific requirements or concerns to the auto transport company. Provide them with accurate dimensions and details about your vehicle to ensure proper handling and transportation.

Step 5: Safety Measures and Roles of Those Involved

During the preparation process, it is essential to prioritize safety:

  • Auto Transport Company: The auto transport company is responsible for loading, securing, and transporting your vehicle safely to its destination. They should have experienced drivers and proper equipment to handle the shipment.
  • Driver: The driver of the transport vehicle plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety of your vehicle during transit. They are trained to handle various road conditions and should adhere to safety protocols throughout the journey.
  • Customer: As the vehicle owner, you play a role in preparing your car for shipment and providing accurate information to the auto transport company. Communicate any concerns or special instructions to ensure a smooth process.

In Case of Emergency: Steps to Take

While rare, emergencies can occur during auto transport. If you encounter an emergency situation:

  1. Contact the Auto Transport Company: Immediately notify the auto transport company of the situation and follow their instructions.
  2. Document the Incident: Take photos or videos of any damage or issues with your vehicle for documentation purposes.
  3. Work with the Company: Work closely with the auto transport company to resolve the emergency and ensure the safety of your vehicle.
