Do you have an upcoming move that you need to be prepared for soon? Are you having your vehicle shipped using our auto transportation? Is this your first time doing something like this, so you are perhaps a bit worried or lost when it comes to where to start? If you said yes to all of the above, have no fear! We understand the struggle and are here to happily help! Follow the quick and easy steps laid out in this guide and your auto shipping will go smoother and better than you could ever imagine!

Start with a clean car.

You may be thinking, surely there is no way that the cleanliness of your car matters right? Right? Well, it actually does! The cleaner your car, the easier your overall auto transportation experience will be. This concept applies to both the outside and the inside of the vehicle. Having a clean exterior of your car allows for you  to see any scuffs, scrapes, or bits of damage that you may otherwise miss. This then allows you to be aware of what kind of damage, if any at all, exists on your car pre-transit so that you can then easily identify any damage that may exist to your car after transit.

Cleaning the interior of your car really applies to organizing your car. You do not want to have any loose items that can move around willy nilly, putting the actual structure of your car at risk. With how your car moves around when being shipped, loose items are very likely to move around a bit, and depending on the road conditions, it could be quite aggressive. Prevent any risk to items or your car by not having things in your vehicle.

Make sure all fluid and gas levels are right!

You want to identify that all fluid levels are right to be sure there is no leak. A leak could cause serious damage to the vehicle itself, the shipping vehicle, or even other vehicles being shipped with yours, so be sure to guarantee that no such issues arise. Furthermore, gas you actually want to be around ¼ of a tank. That leaves enough gas in case of an emergency but does not weigh down the car too much. Having a lower tank also limits the risk of a leak.
