Auto Car Transport- More Tips
I. PREPARE FOR PICK-UP
Use the following tips to be ready for your car pick-up:
Wash your car, so that you can properly inspect it and there are no disagreements over responsibility for any damage.
Remove personal items from your vehicle (see Tip.C).
Remove or secure any special effects on your car, such as spoilers, fog lights and antennas. These can easily be damaged during transport.
Be sure your car battery is charged, so your car can be easily loaded and unloaded from the carrier.
"Original Inspection Report" only for domestic
K. DELIVERY OF YOUR VEHICLE
At the time of delivery, inspect your vehicle SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY and compare the condition and mileage against the "Original Inspection Report" provided by your car transport company at origination. Be sure to inspect the roof and under the front and rear bumpers. If there are inconsistencies, note them as exceptions and be sure the driver signs it. NEVER ACCEPT YOUR VEHICLE AT NIGHT IF YOU CANNOT VERIFY ITS CONDITION – without being viewed and signed by the driver, you have little recourse if damage occurred during transit.
L. IF DAMAGE SHOULD OCCUR
If this should happen, note all damage on your inspection report (see Tip#12), obtain the driver's signature, and contact your car transport company. The car transport company should then work with you to reimburse you for verifiable damage done to your car.
