Vehicles are one of the most important parts of our lives. After all, we purchase it with a lifetime of savings. So it’s important to shift the same with utmost care.
We hereby list out certain things that you need to do before vehicle relocation to have a damage-free shifting:-
Best Auto Transportation:
You must hire none but the best auto transport company which can handle your vehicle with care. Research well along with the reviews and ratings of the company before hiring it. Also, it is advisable that if you can travel by riding your vehicle to the destination, then it is the best deal as it avoids the risk of possible wear and tears on its way to delivery. Ahead of that, ask them if they will be driving your vehicle or will take it inside a multi-car carrying truck.
Preparation In Advance:
Make sure you wash your vehicle well in advance before transportation. Right from washing your car to checking for the dents, do it all beforehand. Because if your car is dirty with layers of dust, then you can never tell the difference between your undamaged and damaged car if it survives any damage or dent in the course of transportation.
The Inner Body:
The inside of a car is often filled with unwanted items like room freshener, towels, etc. It is important to clean it all before movement as things may bump in the vehicle and may damage the mirror and other parts of the car. So, cleaning the same is important. Also, there are several logistics companies like us who let you use the car space in the best way to accommodate belonging items in the car.

Choice Of Things:
Make sure that the things you wish to keep inside your car for transportation are those things which do not cause potential harm to your car as well as that they are the most important yet less risky things which can be subjected to theft in the course of transportation. You have to take into account all the possible angles of relocation.
It is the utmost necessary thing that you need to do. Ask the logistics partner for payment charges and terms of relocation payment. Ahead of that, it’s important to understand all the hidden charges at once right in the beginning. Some companies may have a term of payment where they ask for partial payment in advance and partial on delivery. It’s wise to go with their terms, unlike those companies which ask you to pay in full in advance. Never pay in full. Also, make sure you have a written record of the payment terms and charge calculation.
Before you move ahead with your vehicle relocation, make sure you have insured the same with your logistics company. Initially, you may think it’s an extra price you are paying, but post damages, if any, you will be paying a much higher price. So, why not be cautious beforehand? Also, do check your current vehicle insurance policy if ut covers shipping damages or not. If it does, you are old to go.
So, these are some of the things you should be ready with before moving your vehicle with us. Also, make sure your vehicle has sufficient fuel in the fuel tank for loading and unloading but no more than that.
Have a happy relocation!
