Shipping a car from Washington to another state or country can be quite the challenge, but it doesn’t have to be complicated if you know what to expect. Here are the main things you should know about shipping a car from Washington to another location.
Picking the Right Company
Before we talk about how you should go about picking the right company, here are some things you need to know when it comes to shipping cars. First, check out the requirements for transporting the car by air.
Most states have specific rules and regulations when it comes to transporting a vehicle across state lines. In the case of an overseas move, international laws and regulations apply. You need to decide if you will be driving your car into the country, shipping it in a container, or have someone else drive it for you.
Most car transport companies have limited liability coverage. Some specialize in certain types of cars, like vintage cars, so it is important that you understand what your coverage limits are before signing anything. Ask the car shipping company for more details about their policy, including any exclusions or waivers of liability.
More Important Factors To Consider
-Some states require you to fill out the necessary forms before transporting your vehicle. Be sure you know your state’s regulations and requirements before starting.
-Your vehicle must be titled in the same state as where it will be shipped (transferred). If the car is already titled in another state, an application for a certificate of title must be made by presenting evidence of ownership and taking an oath that the car has not been used illegally since its arrival date.
