Will my vehicle be insured during transport?

by the DOT. The industry minimum is $100,000. We recommend
that you ask to see a copy of their certificate of insurance
for proof. Also, read the terms and conditions of your agreement
carefully to see what is and isn't covered.

carriers an MC# and/or US DOT#,
in order to have proper operating
authority. Brokers must be
have valid MC#'s. Bonding information

are going to a cold climate, make sure you have winterized
your vehicle by adding antifreeze. Secure any
loose items such as antennas. Disconnect auto alarms and anti-theft systems.
Remove any car covers, and bras as they are not allowed by car carriers during
open transport. Enclosed transport is different & may be allowed.

anywhere in the car. Auto transporters are not licensed to
carry household goods. In addition any items stored within
car or vehicle are not covered under the carriers

A. Shipping terminlas are necessary in
the event there is not enough room for a truck to drop off
your vehicle at it's destination,
because of a narrow or dead end street, or any other conditions that would
not allow a truck to enter. A terminal would also be used in the event no one is available to accept
the vehicle upon delivery. These terminals are fully licensed and insured. It
should be noted that terminal shipping is generally less expensive than door
to door vehicle shipping as well.
