8 helpful Tips for Car Transportation

While the most economical way would be driving the car yourself, hiring a specialized car moving company to ship your Vehicle door-to-door is recommended. MovingNow.in gives you the following helpful tips to keep in mind while shipping your Vehicle;

1. Searching for a reliable car transporter: Cost of shipping is the main influencer and we urge you to resist your decision based on cost. While there are specialized operators to ship your car, it can also get driven by road if you persist on cost reduction. Platforms like MovingNow have listed reliable Car Carriers and provide you the right guidance to ship your car by validated transporters.

2. Readying your car for transportation: You are totally responsible for getting your car ready for shipment - be it cleanliness, empty fuel tank, valid insurance, and RC. Preparation should not take much time which also will help ensure smooth shipping. Ask the car transporter for additional tips and precautions to take before loading the car. It is certainly not a hassle if you follow the basics right.

3. Insurance: Your comprehensive insurance generally covers transit damage. Before car shipment, you are however advised to check with your Car insurance company to verify and confirm the same. While transporters do provide you with a specific transit insurance cover for your vehicle upon request, they DO NOT insure personal items left in the Vehicle. You are allowed to put personal belongings only inside the boot at your own risk.

4. Warehouse to Warehouse service: A cheaper option though, you are supposed to bring the car to the warehouse where all get consolidated before shipping. You are also supposed to receive the delivery at a designated warehouse at the new destination

5. Door to Door Service: This is the most recommended service and definitely attracts a certain premium over the Warehouse service. Since carriers come under the ODC (Over dimensional) category, they are not allowed inside the city. Given this condition, the warehouses are situated approximately 50 kms. away from the city and you are saved from all the hassles of driving such distance at both ends when you opt for Door-to-door service.

6. Shipping an expensive car: Transporting an expensive car needs extra precaution and vehicle by those who are making the move. Owners of such vehicles need to be assured that their vehicle is in safe hands and that the people involved in the move know how to effectively handle such Vehicles and take precautions of issues that may possibly arise. Shipping expensive vehicles hold a premium cost over the regular car shipment since the numbers of such cars that load in the carrier reduce considerably.

7. Closed body trucks: Your car is transported in an enclosed container that makes it free from dust, wind, rain and other elements of the road, ensuring complete safety and protection while in transit

8. Car delivery: Transport companies are rarely able to provide quick delivery times since this is a part load consignment. Trucks move only when they are fully loaded. Unforeseen problems like breakdowns can cause potential delays. Considering all the mentioned options, the delivery schedule provided is generally longer. Patience and preparation are essential and will make sure both you and your vehicle transporter have a positive experience.

Considering all the above factors, MovingNow.in has aggregated the best in class Car Transporters for faster, more cost-effective and safe transportation of your vehicle. At the same time, we urge you to understand that a particular tip may not be effective in given circumstances. Taking preventive measures too cannot guarantee a particular outcome. With industry-leading customer service and the dedication towards your delight, we work closely with you to ensure safe, timely delivery of your prized possession.
