We pick up your vehicle

You’ll be contacted by your assigned vehicle shipping carrier a few hours before the scheduled pick-up time. The driver will want to know about the particulars of the pickup location. Basically, the pickup location should be accessible to commercial vehicles.

If not, alternative arrangements can be made if this isn’t the case. When talking with the driver, arrange a suitable location nearby, such as a parking lot, where you work, or a wider street. The carrier also needs to confirm someone is available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be there, you can nominate a third-party such as a neighbor, relative, friend, or colleague.

When the carrier arrives, they’ll inspect your vehicle along with you, noting any existing damage on the Bill of Lading. This important document is then signed, and you’ll get a copy to keep safe.

Once this is done, your precious vehicle is loaded onto the carrier’s trailer. Your vehicle will then be on its way to the eventual delivery destination. You can check in with the driver at any stage during your vehicle’s journey, if you need to put your mind at rest. Regular updates can also be arranged regarding the status of your auto shipment, by phone, Live Chat, or email.

You receive your vehicle

You’ll receive another important call when your car is almost home. To make sure you’re available, the carrier will contact you a few hours before the planned delivery time. If you’re otherwise engaged, don’t worry. A friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor can be nominated to accept delivery of your vehicle, on your behalf. The only stipulation is that they have to be at least 18 years of age.

You or your representative have to closely inspect your car when it’s delivered. If everything is in order, the Bill of Lading has to be signed to accept your delivery.
