What To DO And What NOT To Do
At some point in your lifetime, you may be in need of auto transport services. Whether you need your car transported a few states away or across the country, auto shipping is the way to go. Before booking services, however, there are a few things you should know. This is to ensure that your future car transport goes as smooth as possible. Here is a short list of Do’s and Don’ts:
DO Go For Quality Over Price

DON’T Forget To Remove Items From The Car
It may seem like a good idea to pack your car full of belongings. However, it is recommended to avoid placing personal possessions in your vehicle. This is due to a number of reasons. One of the main reasons to avoid putting items in your car is to prevent damage. Items may roll around in the car during transport and damage not only the items, but your car’s interior. In addition, auto transport companies do not take responsibility if these items were to become lost during transit. Lastly, additional items in your car add weight to the vehicle. Increases in weight could mean an increase in price for you.
DO Double Check Insurance Coverage
Any company that transports vehicles must have the appropriate insurance coverage, in case any incidences were to occur. At National Dispatch, we do not require you to purchase any special insurance before the transportation of your car. You should ask for a copy of the insurance policy from the auto transport company. This way you know exactly what is and is not covered. It is also a good idea to check with your own auto insurance company to see what they cover during transit. You do not want there to be any surprises before transporting your vehicle.
DON’T Skip Out On Doing Research
It is important that you find a company that you can trust to ship your car to its destination. This is why research is critical. Dedicate the time to look for an auto transport company that provides quality services that suit your needs. At National Dispatch, we seek to provide car shipping services for a wide array of customers, from vacationers and military personnel to large corporations and auto dealerships. A few of the services we offer include, open auto transport, enclosed auto transport, door-to-door services, non-running vehicle shipping, and guaranteed delivery.
DO Supply All The Needed Documents For Transport
Most companies require you to supply a few documents and sign some paperwork before being able to ship your vehicle. You may be asked to provide auto insurance information, as well as the vehicle registration. There are some items that need to be taken care when the driver arrives, as well. A vehicle condition report will be completed upon pick-up and delivery of the car. This is done upon arrival to make a note of the existing condition of the vehicle, in case in incidents were to occur in transit. Although incidences are unlikely, it is important for insurance purposes.
