You know that you shouldn't drive your car without the right insurance, but you
might not know that you have to think about insurance when shipping your
vehicle too. When you load your automobile onto the transport truck you don't
know what it might be in for and if you haven't double checked
shipping company's policies, you may be left footing the bill for
scratches, dents or worse.
auto transport companies carry the insurance required to cover
any damage that occurs to the vehicles they're shipping (and in the vast
majority of cases, transported cars arrive at their destination in perfect
condition). However, as with any kind of insurance, there can be lots of
caveats. Before you trust your automobile to a moving company, check out 123
Movers' advice on insurance and the vehicle shipping process.
Keep the following in mind:
Before you settle on which auto shipping company to use, ask the companies
you're interested in for their insurance certificate. They're all required by
law to have one. Don't be afraid to ask questions about their policies either.
Will your car be covered for any damage that occurs during shipping? Or are
only certain parts of the car (i.e. the body) covered? Will you be required to
pay a deductible?
