How to Ship a Car Cross Country

Just the other day, Larry Brown asked us an interesting question. A colleague in the community and owner of one of the few honest auto mechanics in Denver http://davisrepair.com/, he wanted to know if Exodus Moving and Storage moves cars across the country. We were happy to answer, yes.

As a truly full service moving company, at Exodus, we are ready and able to help you relocate anything and everything that you own with the care and precision of our professional moving experience. Vehicle shipping is no exception. We understand that an important part of relocation is not only moving your home items safely and securely, but also making sure that all vehicles arrive on time and intact as well, when shipping your car long distance.

There are several things you want to make sure you check and consider when taking a car across country. Some of these things are more important than others. But when you are moving either to or from Colorado, it is vital to remember that not only is your body adjusting to the increase or decrease in altitude, so is your car. The following is a list created by Exodus and Davis Auto to help you with shipping your car.

Tire Pressure

It’s important to make sure this is checked when entering your new city to avoid blow outs or other damage.

Gas Tank

Make sure you are at ¼ tank or LESS for auto transport to ensure that there is enough to drive it a short distance but not too much to create a potential hazard.

Keys

Don’t forget to give all keys to the doors & ignition to your movers. Also make certain to have a spare set in case of emergency.

Your Belongings

Make certain to remove all personal items from vehicle.

Check Inside

Before and after the transport of your car its important to check your battery to make sure that it is fully charged. It is also good to check for fluid leaks.

Once your vehicle has been shipped by Exodus and has arrived safely at its new destination, the best way to make sure your car is as happy as you are with your new home is to take it into a local reliable dealer http://www.cartalk.com/content/mechx/ .

We suggest getting an oil change and mentioning to the mechanic just how far from its original destination your car is. Ask them to spend a little extra time to make sure your car is transitioning as well into its new environment as you are.

Exodus Past, Present and Future

At Exodus, our employees are hardworking, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. We stand for quality and excellence in everything we do. From packing services to relocating to totally secured storage, we are committed to our customers and to the integrity of our operation. When our COO, Joel Coen met up with the city in his most recent interview, he was able to share a bit of insight about where we come from and how/why we do what we do. The following are extended excerpts from this session.

Exodus History in Colorado

Ilan Levy began moving furniture in New York City with a plan that it would set the course for his future in Northern Colorado. In 1996, Levy relocated to Northern Colorado, where he started Exodus Moving and Storage. His one truck operation at the time has grown to a fleet of 20 trucks in Northern Colorado. Today Colorado is our home and for that reason we continue to focus on it as our main hub from which to move and store. Our staff is very happy to live and work in this great state. With the varied terrain and mostly sun filled skies, Colorado is a year round pleasure even in the winter. As we grow we will think about expanding into other states but for now we are thrilled to be a premier Colorado Moving and Storage Company.

Exodus & Social Media

We believe that social media and the Internet are powerful tools for the consumer. They provide customers with both vital and timely information on all sorts of topics. Finding message boards that are very active create good chances that someone will respond quickly with good information. Before social media most people found out who the good businesses were through traditional word of mouth. If you were looking for a good business you would just ask around and spread the word. Now people can go online and read all about it through online evaluations from their peers. We are happy that there is a ton of info online about Exodus Moving and Storage, and that it is all pointing to us in a positive light of glowing recommendations from happy customers.

Words to Work By

When asked what the best business advice that I had ever received in my life was, the question really got to me. But when I thought about it, the answer was a simple statement “the truth will set you free.” Telling the truth has allowed me to behave with integrity; to show up in an honest and forthright way and it’s the guiding principal that impacts the way we do business at Exodus. ~Joel Coen

Northern Colorado Associations

At Exodus we take partnerships with people seriously. One of our proudest positions is our place in our community. Because our customers are our number one priority, it’s no wonder that we are a preferred mover in Colorado and beyond.  Our company functions like a family. And with offices in both Fort Collins and Denver, we take care to get involved in the neighborhoods in which we serve. This includes creating alliances and associations with other organizations who are doing good to make our home a better place. This week we would like to highlight two such organizations that are doing their part to improve conditions in Northern Colorado.

Northern Colorado Renewable Energy Society

The NCRES is a non-profit membership organization that is committed to educating both businesses and consumers about energy efficiency technology. As a chapter of the larger Colorado Renewable Energy Society, NCRES holds various presentations and tours with the mission of increasing community knowledge about the importance of creating cost effective and sustainable solutions for business and life. For information about up and coming events or for a calendar of regular meetings check out their site:

The International Facility Management Association of Northern Colorado

Facility Management is the art and science of creating an efficient office. It uses architectural design, behavioral and engineering sciences and administrative aspects to blend an actual workspace with the people that work in it and the work that they do. In 1980 the International Facility Management Association was founded to support this endeavor. It now has almost 20,000 members spanning over 50 countries.

In an effort to support this organization the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the IFMA was established in 1989. It currently maintains a diverse membership and aids in the support, education and professional development of its community. This chapter serves Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming.
