Car Shipping Pointers When Packing for Moving Abroad
When packing for moving abroad, often there is a need to bring along a car. Seldom is it possible or feasible to drive the car from one country to the next and hiring an unknown driver to do the job is simply too risky and not guaranteed. One method for car shipping to Australia, New Zealand, the UK and similar points is to enlist the services of international movers who are experienced in providing customers with various shipping options to meeting their specific needs. Having access to such services means you can schedule to have your car delivered to its destination and continue packing for moving abroad without any worry.
One of the decisions that you will have presented regarding car shipping is the method you want your vehicle to be shipped by. There are many different options for container shipping your car. Many people want their vehicle shipped by itself and choose sole use container services so that it is not brought into contact with any other items or cars. With this option, your car is secured with wheel chocks that hold it in place and straps. Other options may exist that allow you to include other goods inside the container as your car ships.
Shared container services are available as well. In the case of car shipping in a shared container, after your car is loaded into the container, it is protected during transit by a custom built crate designed around the car to ensure a safe transit from one location to another. The shared container option means you only have to pay for the space inside the custom built frame, which can result in lower car shipping costs. In both cases, shipment protection ensures that should anything happen, your vehicle is covered. A detailed pre-shipment report that is prepared also offers peace of mind.
As a rule, personal effects should be removed from the car before shipping. Exceptions would be instances where it is allowed to have baggage and or personal goods loaded into the vehicle as a form of shipment. Entrusting your car shipping to the professionals that are fully bonded by the British Association of Removers is a smart way to ensure that all requirements are met when your car goes into the crate for shipping whether it is by container or overseas.
