What to Do if Your Car is Damaged During Transportation
That is why we always say “Photograph the state of your belongings before you hand them over to your movers.” As soon as you receive your vehicle, no matter if you opted for door-to-door auto transport or terminal-to-terminal car shipping, make sure to thoroughly inspect its exterior and compare it to its previous state. Once you notice the damage, document it meticulously. Take photographs, make notes of the affected areas, and compile a comprehensive report.
This evidence is key to ensuring a smooth resolution of your claim. Remember, it’s your responsibility to report these damages as soon as they’re discovered, typically within a certain time frame after delivery. By understanding these procedures, you can better navigate this stressful situation, ensure your rights are protected, and hasten the restoration of your vehicle to its pre-transport condition.
