Before vehicle transport carriers are allowed to go anyplace with your vehicle, they are required by the DOT to do a every day “Pre-Trip Inspection” of the equipment. We strongly recommend that you also do a Inspection of your car. In preparing for any transport, it is key to check items such as tire pressure, oil & water levels, other fluid levels, etc.
This inspection can help in avoiding troubles down the road, not to point out that it is a good idea to be familiar with your car. Loose moldings and the like have a propensity to take the air off in shipping, thus causing likely break to your vehicle or to others on the same load. Leaking fluids could also be a harm to the wellbeing of your car and/or the car below it. Please do you have any and all repairs done before transport.
Vehicles that become untreatable in transport are subject to an inoperable charge up to $100.00. It is also adviced that you have no more than 1/4 tank of gas in your motor vehicle at time of transport for weight reasons.
