The vehicle must be clean for inspection. A dirty vehicle decreases the ability to perform a quality inspection.
Prior to shipping, make sure that your car is completely empty. First of all, the majority of shipping companies are not licensed nor insured to transport your personal belongings, but rather are only insured to transport your car. Secondly, personal belongings left inside your vehicle can shift during transport and cause damage to the interior of your car which the shipping company would not be responsible for.
The types of services provided by auto shipping companies vary greatly. Some companies offer overseas auto transportation while others offer local transportation alone. Some of the other services provided by auto shipping companies include corporate relocation, snowbird move, RV Transportation, Motorcycle Transportation, Classic and Collector Car transport and much more. A corporate relocation is a service provided to companies that have group transportation needs. A snowbird move is a service offered to seasonal transporters who switch places frequently. Motorcycle transportation is nothing but shipping of two wheelers and other smaller vehicles. Classic and Collector transport involves transporting of vintage cars. Since classic and collector cars have to be handled with care, most of the auto shipping companies use an enclosed transport medium to ship vintage cars.
