When transporting your vehicle, there is always room for surprises whether it be with time restraints or price. The overall goal should be to try and avoid any and all surprises, making your transport experience as painless and as stress free as possible. After all, who wants to worry about that type of thing if it can be avoided. The truth of the matter is, life is full of surprises, and your auto transport experience is no different. You can however minimize the chances of headache by following a few easy steps.

1)– Perhaps the most important step is finding the company which best suits your needs. The best way to go about doing this is simply by researching the companies which are offering the services you desire. If you have internet access, you can simply hop online and check out their prices and reviews. Be sure to read reviews if they are available, as this will help give you some insight as to other experiences customers have had with the customers. Compare prices and reviews of at least a few different companies. If you do not have internet access, do not hesitate to contact the company via telephone and ask any and all question you think may help make a better educated decision

2) – Once you’ve chosen the company that best fits your specific needs, it’s time to get the ball rolling. First, it is important that you communicate your vehicles information to the company, as this will assist them in setting you up with a driver and vehicle that will best handle your transport. Information you should give include weight of vehicle, height of vehicle, width of vehicle, ground clearance, distance from main road (is the vehicle easily accessible), and also the running condition of the vehicle. All of these factors will assist in helping keep your experience surprise free. For example, if you neglect to tell the company that your car is not in running condition, the extra man power required to get the vehicle onto the transporter will cost more and could also cause the pick up to be delayed, if the driver is under staffed. Also, if your car is located in a place the truck cannot fit, this may also cause delays in the transport process, causing headaches for you!

3)– Also, be sure to not pack any personal possessions in your vehicle prior to pick-up. While it may seem like a good idea, killing two birds with one stone, it is actually not allowed! Not only is it usually not allowed per company transport guidelines, it is also a bad idea due to other factors. One example can be seen in the fact that it could mess with the weight of the vehicle, possibly effecting the transportation of the vehicle. Another reason not to is simply due to the fact that your possessions are not insured, and if anything was to be damaged or lost during an accident or any other number of unforeseen situations, you wouldn’t want to be left without any type of compensation.
