Inspect your car before
pick-up and take photos
Take time to inspect your car before the carrier arrives and note any visible or mechanical problems. It’s helpful to take dated and well-lit photos of your car from different angles. Thankfully, the industry as a whole has a damage rate under 3%, so you probably won’t have to deal with the photos at all.
Protect your vehicle from the elements
If you own a classic, vintage or luxury vehicle, you’ll want to request either fully enclosed transport (an enclosed trailer), or have your vehicle “top loaded.” Top loading typically costs a bit more, but your vehicle will travel on the upper deck of the carrier, where contact with road debris and auto fluids is less likely.
