If you’re moving, you can’t always transport all of your vehicles yourself. Of course, this all depends on your situation. If you are moving yourselves, chances are you’ll be driving the moving truck. If you are moving a short distance, you might be able to get a trailer to drag your car with you. If you are moving far away or across continents, you might need to have your car professionally moved to your new house. If this is the case, here are some things to consider before hiring a moving company.
Research is always the essential first step. Call your potential candidate companies and ask them any questions you may have. Find out about their packing and transport methods. Ask them what their insurance covers as far as damage and unforeseen events. At the same time talk to your insurance company about what potential car damage it will cover. The company will most likely not take any responsibility for your personal belongings, so it would be wise to completely empty out your car. This will also help if they charge your car by weight. That being said, do not think you can drain all the fluids out of your car. You have to be able to drive it away from the drop off point.
In any case this is probably going to be and expensive part of your move, so get as many price quotes as you can. And compare the services offered in that quote. Chances are the cheapest offer won’t be the best of available services. Be sure to document any car defects before letting the moving company pick up your car. This will help you with any damage claims that occur during the moving process. The insurance company will have a harder time claiming it was a pre-existing condition.
