Once you’ve scheduled auto transport, there are a few things that you need to do to prepare before the carrier arrives to pick up your vehicle. Transporting a car needs some coordination, but don’t worry – Metti International is here to help you make sure that everything goes smoothly during the pickup and drop off of your vehicle.
Provide a Reliable Phone Number
When you’re preparing your car for automobile shipping, it’s important that you give the dispatcher a good phone number that you can be reached at. When your car is close to delivery or your drop off date is delayed, they will call you to let you know.
Don’t Cancel Your Insurance Policy
We recommend keeping your car insurance during your scheduled automobile transport to make sure that it’s covered if any damage is done. It’s much better to be well prepared, and you can always cancel once your car has been delivered to your new home.
Make Two Sets of Keys
Never schedule automobile shipping without making an extra set of keys. You’ll give one to the driver and keep the other set with you in case the set you gave the carrier is misplaced.
Remove All Personal Items From Your Car
Prior to transporting a car, always make sure that you remove all personal and valuable items from the car. Most auto carriers will not accept vehicles with visible items in them and protect your car’s windows during its journey.
Keep Gas In Your Vehicle
It’s recommended to have a ¼ tank of gas in your car at the time of pickup. This will make sure that you have enough gas to get to your final destination if the vehicle isn’t dropped off at your new home.
By following these simple pieces of advice, your car shipping experience should go smoothly. And remember, if you ever have any questions throughout the process, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to the dispatcher or driver.
