How To Ship A Car Across The Country
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A few months ago I was in the market for a new vehicle. I had decided that I wanted to purchase a jeep. So I shopped around online to try and find the best deal available. After looking on AutoTrader and other similar sites, I found a few on Ebay that looked to be in my price range. I ended up purchasing one from a guy who was located in Rhode Island and I live in the midwest. I quickly realized that I needed to learn how to ship a car.

Whenever I had purchased a car before, I had always done it locally. I didn't have any experience shipping a car across the country. So I do what I normally do when I don't know how to do something, and I got online and started researching shipping a car. Fortunately, I found out that the process is not too difficult and was able get it done without incident.

The first thing I needed to do is determine a date of when I wanted my Jeep shipped. The process can at times take a week or longer, and you also need to plan for unseen events like poor weather. I was ready to get my new vehicle as soon as possible, so I wanted to get it shipped soon.

Once you have determined when you want to get your car shipped, you need to choose a car shipping service. This is probably the most important step in the process. Take your time to research different shipping companies to determine the best one for you and your situation. You also want to select a reputable, honest company that has a strong track record. Like any industry, there are some companies that you will want to stay away from. Also, ask around to friends and relatives for any advice on auto shipping services they may have used in the past.

After you have narrowed down your list of auto shipping services that you can trust, it is now time to find the best rate possible. This can be a fairly expensive process. So, you will want to get the best quote you can and save as much money as possible.

Having picked an honest, reliable car shipping service with a low rate, it is now time to prepare your vehicle for shipping. This includes securing or removing any loose parts on the exterior like fog lights or antennas. If you have an alarm, turn it off. Remove any personal belongings. Take note of any damages to your car. You might want to also consider taking pictures of them.

As you can see the whole process is fairly simple. If you don't know how to ship a car, just follow these easy steps. And remember, make sure to pick a quality car shipping service.
