Will My Car Require Special Preparation Prior to Transport?
Vehicle preparation includes the steps taken by an individual or company prior to the transport of a motor vehicle. This usually includes disconnecting a car alarm and making sure that the car is in good working order – but it’s not all.
One of the most important things when preparing a car for shipping is to make sure all fluids are at the proper levels. Have an oil change done if necessary, and make sure coolant, transmission fluid, and brake fluid are at the right level as well. You should also check the tire pressure and top off any low tires. This will help protect your vehicle while it’s in transit.
As part of relocation day preparations, it’s also important that all loose items are removed from inside the car. This includes everything from floor mats and spare keys to clothing and electronics. Any items left in the car may be subject to theft or damage during transit, so make sure to take anything valuable out of the vehicle beforehand!
In the end, add a thorough cleaning of your car to your move-out cleaning list before it gets shipped. All dirt, dust, and debris should be removed from both the interior and exterior of your vehicle. It will not only help your vehicle look its best when it’s delivered but help you spot any kind of damage made to the exterior. When your vehicle is all nice and clean, take a picture of it, so you’ll be able to compare the condition before the transport with the one after.
