Remove Accessories and Personal Items
Do not risk damaging or losing your personal belongings by leaving them in the car. Remove all of your personal items such as:
- GPS devices,
- Personal identifying documents,
- Charging cables,
Also, pay attention to the exterior of the vehicle. If there are any expensive outside accessories that can easily get damaged during car shipping, you should remove them. Items such as rooftop boxes, bike racks, luggage racks, custom spoilers, and retractable antennas shouldn’t be left on the vehicle. In any case, most long-distance moving services providers will require you to remove it all.
Some drivers own toll tags and parking passes. These should be removed as well since you’ll be charged fees each time the carrier goes through tolls. However, keep an emergency kit, license plate, and a spare tire in the car.
