How to Successfully Transport a Car Interstate?
When deciding to move your vehicle interstate with a transport company, there are things you can do to help us keep your pride and joy as safe as possible. As car lovers ourselves, we work with the best in the business, including having the best insurance money can buy with NTI. However, for peace of mind it is a good idea to also have your own comprehensive vehicle insurance in order to make sure there are no discrepancies in vehicle values.
Is my car safe during transportation?
Shipping a vehicle with a transport company is a very safe way to transport your vehicle interstate. Because of the way we load and carry your vehicle on our trailers, damage is extremely unlikely to happen.
We have been operating for 11 years transporting vehicles up and down the east coast of Australia. We know what our trailers can carry and we will advise the shortest wait time possible to ensure we fit your vehicle safely on our trucks. We are committed to working with the best in the business and our expert drivers will get your car safely to your destination. Our Insurance cover also offers peace of mind.
Why your own comprehensive vehicle insurance is a good idea
For everything we can possibly cover for peace of mind, we have our own transport insurance. Your own comprehensive insurance that you likely already have on your car will fill the gaps. For example, Acts of God or theft/ malicious damage in storage that our transport insurance does not cover.
If you do not have comprehensive insurance on your vehicle you want to transport, you can organise cover quickly with a phone call for a selected time period in order to cover your interstate car transport booking.
Other tips for your vehicle transportation booking
To prepare your vehicle for transportation, there are a number of things you can do:
- Clean your vehicle and conduct a vehicle inspection
- Note down and take a photo of any existing paint chips, discolouration, scratches or dents
- A specific list of pre-existing damage is the most important part if, in the unlikely event, you need to make an insurance claim
- Secure any items you are planning to leave inside your car during transport
