Cleaning Your Car Before Vehicle Shipping

Cleaning Your Car Before Vehicle Shipping

DATE: 03/08/10

Are you thinking about shipping your car? Before you drop your vehicle off for shipping, there are several things you should do to prepare it. One of the most important steps to take is to clean the car before vehicle shipping. Why is it so important to clean your car before shipping? The main reason to clean your vehicle is that it allows you and the shipping company to clearly examine the vehicle before it’s loaded and shipped. This lets you identify any pre-existing scratches, dents, or other damage so that if any additional damage appears after shipping, you know it occurred while the vehicle was out of your hands. It’s also important to clean the inside of your car prior to vehicle shipping. There are two reasons for this. First, you don’t want loose items in your car during shipping and they could also get damaged during the transportation process.  Additionally, having a bunch of belongings inside your vehicle could make it difficult for the vehicle to clear customs as agents would have to search through the car. There are some other things you should do to prepare your car for shipping, including removing add-ons and accessories, keeping the gas tank low (about ¼ full), and disconnecting the car alarm so it doesn’t go off during shipping.
