Shipping a Car across Country, shipping a car

People all across the country have plenty of reasons for having to ship a car from one corner of the country to another. Those reasons can include moving to a new state, needing a car during a vacation without using a rental, or selling your car on your own to someone across the time zones. If you need to ship your car across the country, it will take the same amount of time as if you were driving it yourself but the weather conditions and road construction can cause your car to arrive across country after you have already gotten there.

Make sure that you do not hire just any car shipping companies to move your car across the country because they might not be as reputable as they say they are. Check your top five choices with your local Better Business Bureau to make sure that they have not had any complaints filed against them in recent months. Once you choose the company best for you, make sure that they have an insurance policy. Ask the company if there is a deductible to pay and always ask for a copy of the insurance policy.

Once the date arrives for the company to pick up your vehicle, watch the mover carefully to make sure that he or she does not roughly handle your vehicle. Also, the person moving the vehicle should fill out a report that details the condition of your vehicle at the time of pick up. Get a copy of that report and take it with you on your trip. When your car arrives, check every inch of it for any new damage and then report it to the auto shipping company.
