How to Inspect Your Vehicle After Shipping
Vehicles should be inspected before and after shipping. You should always note any damage to the autotransporter before shipping and take photos of the vehicle’s condition before its voyage. When you are ready to move cars, you should already know the condition of your vehicle and be prepared with proper documentation in case of potential but rare damage.
When your vehicle arrives at its destination, a representative will be there to receive the vehicle from the vehicle transporter. With the bill of lading that you receive, make note of any marks or scratches on the vehicle that was not there before. Take photos of any of these marks, and show these to the representative to confirm this condition on the bill of lading.
If there is any vehicle damage, you would have to file a claim with the insurance company. If your vehicle if valuable, a sports car or over the value of $70,000 – it is recommended to use an enclosed auto carrier. 75% of Direct Connect’s Customers use open auto transport.
