Vehicle Transport Recommendations
For your peace of mind we would like to provide you with a few crucial vehicle transport recommendations!
First when shipping your vehicle it is very important to have personal copies of the company’s insurance policies and all other agreements to avoid any misunderstandings.
Supplemental car insurance coverage is a great idea when transporting a valuable classic car, vintage car, race car, exotic car, antique car, etc. Experienced transport companies understand that these type of vehicles require different attention.
Ask for a copy of the car shipping insurance coverage, and find out whether their insurance is primary or secondary to your own car insurance.
Make sure that the transport company has the 3 main insurances: Cargo Insurance, Liability Insurance and Garage policy. The best Canadian auto transport companies should have all three of them.
Double check that the vehicle shipping company you are dealing with has the necessary paperwork to ship your vehicle safely in Canada. This paperwork consists of the Bill of Lading and the Condition report. Upon completion of your vehicle’s inspection the driver should ask you to sign the bill of lading.
Make sure to have the phone number of the dispatch department to the auto transport company. This will help you stay in touch with the company of your choice. They should be able to answer any questions and provide you with updated information about your vehicle’s location.
If you follow these tips every time you ship a vehicle, you will have the peace of mind that you deserve since the transportation company will be responsible for any damage done to the vehicle.
As an additional benefit we are glad to inform you that these recommendations apply to transport companies in the US as well.
American car brokers work in the same way as Canadian car brokers. They are all required to have their insurance up to date. If you find that this is not the case, we politely ask you to let us know since their reviews are based on the shipping service they offer.
