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.
It’s important to make sure this is checked when entering your new city to avoid blow outs or other damage.
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.
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.
Make certain to remove all personal items from vehicle.
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.
