Preparing Your Car for Transport
Making a long distance move can sometimes necessitate shipping your car to your new home rather than driving it. There are some things that should be done with your car prior to handing it over to your vehicle transport company to ensure that it will arrive in safe condition. To begin, your automobile needs to be operable and safe to drive. At various points along the shipping route, a technician will be driving your car to pick it up, deliver it, or load it onto the shipping vehicle. Before you give it to the shipper, it is wise to have it checked by a mechanic for any fluid leaks. Not only will this protect your car from potential damage, but it will save you from liability in the event that leaks from your vehicle cause damage to other property.
