Vehicle Transport 101: What you Need to Know

There may be times that arise during your life that require you to move a vehicle from point A to point B. While it is always easy to move the car simply by driving it, there are times when that just isn’t an option. And when such a time comes, there are only a handful of methods you can turn to. The most effective method being using an auto transport company to haul your vehicle wherever it needs to go.

Depending on what industry you’re employed in, or what type of life you lead, transporting a vehicle over a long distance isn’t something you normally do. So it’s no wonder that you may have questions concerning the process and how it all works. We here at Coast to Coast Auto Transport know all about educating first timers and getting their cars on the road while avoiding the hassle.

Just a few things to know before transporting your vehicle:

  • Find the right company to work with- The first step in transporting your vehicle from one place to another is finding a company that’ll do it. While there are many companies that claim to be the most reputable or the best for the job, the truth is you need do your research in finding the best company. You’re trusting the company with your car, so it may take a while to find the best option.
  • Coordinate the details- When you call Coast to Coast, you are immediately connected with skilled coordinators that will let you know what the best options are to transport your vehicle. We arrange pick up of the vehicles in parking lots are other areas with a large open space because our trucks have difficulty turning around in subdivisions or neighborhoods.
  • Make sure your car works- We cannot move inoperable vehicles. Therefore, you need to make sure your car can both run and steer. There are many different reasons for this, however, the bottom line is that we are unable to transport the vehicle unless it can get to the pickup destination under it’s own power.
  • Other fine points- Some other things to considers is that we are licensed to transport vehicles only. We cannot transport any personal belongings or household goods that may be packed into the vehicle. We also prefer that the car being transported has ¼ tank of gas or less.

Now that you know what it takes to transport your next vehicle, you can go through the process without the hassle!
