Steps to Auto Shipping a Car Sold or Bought Online.
All auto transport companies have criteria that must be met before they will agree to ship your vehicle. This is for the driver's safety as well as the safety of your car. Since the seller must prepare the car for shipping, you'll want to check with him/her prior to making your purchase to verify that they are willing and able to comply with the auto transport company's specifications. Used car dealers will find this a normal part of the procedure. Individuals, however, may not be aware of all the steps that need to be taken before shipping a car. You should especially be aware of this potential problem when buying a car on eBay or other online site, which might have good-intentioned, but naive sellers.
For instance, the vehicle must be operational. If you've purchased - for instance - a classic car, you'll need to let us know ahead of time so that height, and ground-clearance limits must be met. The battery must be secure in the mounting bracket. The car must be clean and will be required to have no more than a 1/2 tank of gas. There are other stipulations you'll need to clear with the seller also. Be sure to accurately fill-out our quote form, so there are no surprises or additional fees.
