Helpful tips for Auto, Boat, or Equipment Shipping


With the right knowledge and preparation, vehicle and equipment shipping is simple.  The planning process for shipping large items should start at least a month before your ship date. Each type of vehicle and piece of large equipment is different however, so research extensively to get the right quote.


For example, for international boat shippingyou may need to allow a longer time to research and obtain different quotes as it needs more preparation for longer transport.  You will also need to look into boat trailers, choose a boat carrier, and have the boat measurements for an accurate estimate.


Once you have done this you can prepare your boat for transport.  Before boat shipping you should secure any loose items and identify any pre-existing damage before your boat is loaded. This check is important in the unlikely event that your boat is damaged in transit.


Consider having a qualified boat yard help you with the pre-shipping check.  It is also advisable to have your boat inspected by a licensed marine surveyor before boat shipping.  You should clean the exterior of your boat before shipping and take time-stamped photos of any problems or damage.


Similar preparation is advised when it comes to auto shipping.  A complete and accurate description of the vehicle is crucial to obtaining an accurate quote, especially of any modifications have been made to the vehicle such as over-sized tires or if the vehicle has been lowered.


Ensure your car is in good working order before transport.  Many things can happen during auto shipping, and pre-existing problems with the car will be your responsibility, so check for leaks, etc. Inoperable vehicles are able to be shipped, but let your transporter know ahead of time so they can make preparations.


Consult an auto shipping guide to find out more specific details about what is expected and required before the inspection process.  It is critical to be as thorough as possible at pick up and delivery.  If you discover a problem a few days after the shipment, it will be very difficult to make a claim at that point.


Equipment shipping can be a stress-free process with the right preparation.   Don’t forget to tell your transporters the access routes to picking up very large equipment, be prepared to offer an alternative like a large parking lot so they can meet you there.  Be on time to ensure a smooth start to your equipment delivery.
