  3. 3. You need to know that most auto shipping carriers refuse to ship the car that contains personal belongings. You ask, why? Federal transportation laws forbid carriers from shipping personal belongings in vehicles during transit. This law forbids this due to insurance reasons, which only cover the actual vehicle and not the item inside of it.

  5. 5. 1. Auto transport carriers are not allowed to ship anything else besides motor vehicles Legally, auto transport carriers can only transport motorized vehicles. Regardless of their size, age or type, the motor vehicles are placed in the car hauler and shipped from one place to another. From small cars to minivans and SUVs and from motorcycles to cargo vans, they all find their spot on the truck. On the other hand, companies that are legally allowed to ship personal and household items are called moving companies.
  6. 6. 2. Auto transport carriers have to abide by federal weight limits Each vehicle model has a certain curb weight, the total empty weight of the automobile. This weight is usually taken into consideration when an auto transport company gives you a price quote. According to the specified weight of the car, the carrier loads the truck with a certain amount of cars, careful not to overload it.
  7. 7. 3. Loose objects can damage the vehicle during transit Placing household items in your vehicle during auto transport in order to save money may end up costing you even more. Loose objects inside the car can damage the vehicle while the truck is in motion, for example, windows can be easily broken and seats can be punctured. If these damages occur due to the personal goods that were placed in the vehicle.
  8. 8. 4. The personal items are not insured Professional moving companies have insurance for their trucks as well as for the household and personal items on board. This means that, if a vase is broken or your clothing does not reach the destination in good condition, you will be reimbursed by their insurance company.
