Why Ship Your Car Using an Open Auto Transport Service?
Open transport is one of the most common ways to ship your vehicle as it is usually the least expensive out of all the different car shipping methods. Your vehicle will be shipped on a trailer with an average of 7-10 other cars, making it cheaper than an enclosed auto transport service which is typically used for higher-end vehicles.
Open auto carriers are more readily available than other auto transport vehicles, making it easier to find a carrier for your vehicle and to get your car shipped exactly when you want it to be shipped. Paragon Transport can set you up with an open auto transport carrier in a timely fashion. Your vehicle will also be insured against damage. Throughout the process, you’ll have excellent communication with the team at Paragon at all times. Thousands of customers trust Paragon Transport for all of their open car shipping services and you should too! Call us today at (877).858.4415!
How to Ship Your Car Using an Open Car Shipping Carrier
We here at Paragon Auto Transport know that shipping your car can be stressful. There are several factors to constantly worry about such as deadlines, price, the types of transport, etc. Paragon will work with you every step of the way and help guide you through the process of getting your car shipped safe and sound. Since your car will be exposed to the outdoors during transportation, here are a few things to consider and to do in order to prepare your car for shipping on an open carrier. We can also help you to ensure that all of the following are done. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us!
Even though damage is rare and your vehicle will be insured against damage during transportation, it is important that you inspect your vehicle for any and all damage prior to shipping. If your car has previous damage, let us know.
Remove personal items from the vehicle. It is actually illegal to ship other items with your car. It is reasonable to have an item or two in the trunk, but you want to remove most if not all of your personal belongings from the vehicle prior to shipping.
Remove parking and toll passes. As your car will be traveling major roads and highways, you could be charged for going through tolls even though you’re not using your vehicle.
Make sure your car is in running condition. Although it will not be driven much or at all during the transport process, it will need to be loaded and offloaded. Check the following:
Battery is fully charged
Tires properly inflated
1/4 tank of gas, but not more
Fluids topped off
Notify Paragon of any leaking fluids
Secure convertible tops
If you need assistance with any of the steps listed above, we will be happy to help! By taking the proper steps, you can help ensure that your vehicle arrives safely and on time.
