Inspection Process For Car Hauling Nationwide Car Haulers
Used car dealers ship a lot of cars. It is important to know and understand the inspection process. It is difficult to prove that damage to a vehicle is a result of transportation when there is no record of any damage noted at time of delivery. Here is a quick reminder of what anyone hiring a car hauler to ship cars needs to know about the inspection process. What is the inspection process for shipping cars?
Pre-Pickup Inspection Prior to vehicle pickup by a licensed car hauler, the seller/shipper should carefully inspect each vehicle and note any scratches, dents, or additional problems. When the car hauler arrives, both the seller/shipper and the driver need to sign off on any pre-existing damage.
Delivery Inspection Upon delivery, the buyer/recipient should immediately and thoroughly inspect the vehicle and note any damage that may be transportation-related on the Proof-of-Delivery receipt presented by the car hauler. Any damage that may be transportation-related should be noted before signing the receipt. If the recipient signs the receipt without noting any damage, it makes it very difficult to prove damage was transportation-related.
