If you’ve never transported you vehicle before, the idea of it can seem pretty scary. However, in reality, it’s an easy task that that can be boiled down to three simple steps:

·       Step One – Call an auto transport company two to three weeks prior to your desired shipping date. In some cases, they allow some leeway and ship your car as quickly as possible. It never hurts to ask! These companies are dedicated to transporting vehicles in the safest and most effective way as possible. They use professional drivers that no how to carefully handle vehicles, while transporting them in one-time and at the destination you chose.

·       Step Two – Make sure all of your personal belongings are out of the vehicle. The drivers will examine the car prior to shipping to make sure they aren’t in there. Upon shipping, personal belongings are not allowed to be stored in your vehicle. This rule is enforced by the Department of Transportation and in doing so it allows for them to inspect and/or remove belongings if they so choose.

·       Step Three – Keep in mind that they can’t haul vehicles that are inoperable. That means that the vehicle must run, brake and steer.
