Vehicle Shipping Tips in Canada

Vehicle Shipping Tips in Canada

Having a reliable car carrier to ship your vehicle or truck is a convenient and safe way to move it across country. Take advantage of the car shipping service when you’re relocating, moving a vehicle out of car storage, or buying a vehicle from a distance.There are many factors to consider when shipping a vehicle. It’s a good idea to make a check list with all your question and tasks.

How can I save money when shipping a car:

  • “Terminal to Terminal” will help you save money since “Door to Door” is more costly.
  • If you are far from the Terminal ask about our “Meet the driver” service. This is also less than our “Door to Door” service.
  • Take advantage of last minute specials, when they are available!

How many days in advanced should I book with my car shipping company:

  • We recommend you booking two weeks in advanced. The auto transport company has had an exponential growth and this will give us time to accommodate your vehicle.
  • If you find a date that you are comfortable with, book it. Spots on the trucks go fast and your spot is not reserved unless payment is made.

Make a complete check-up of your vehicle before car shipping:

  • Make sure the battery is good.
  • Check for any leaks. (If you find any leaks, please let the carrier know.)
  • Car’s ignition system – Make sure it runs.
  • Wash your car and check for dents or scratches.
  • Leave only 1/4 tank of gas.

Personal belongings in your vehicle during auto transport:

  • ShipMyRide, unlike most companies, allows you to have up-to 150 pound of personal belongings in the truck of your car.
  • They must not cover the windows
  • we recommend that you do not put any fragile items in the vehicle since they may get damaged on the road
  • Personal items are not covered by the insurance.

Auto transport time frames:

  • Keep realistic time frames
  • To receive your vehicle when you need it. Please plan well in advanced.
  • We will keep you updated each step of the way – Please note that our delivery times are an estimate, since our schedules depend on many factors such as weather, layovers and possible break-downs.

We greatly value each of our customers and believe that honesty is key to keeping a long lasting business relationship!
