  3. 3. Get quotes for help with the loading. If local you should be able to get one for about $75 Call your local tow truck operators
  4. 4. Tip you can put things in the car but do not load higher than the windows and obviously keep the drivers seat clear Make sure you only have a tiny bit of gas in the car Drive the car on to the tow truck
  5. 5. Tip Fold in wing mirrors just before they are going to clip the side of the container. Secure car to tow truck Reverse tow truck up to the shipping container
  6. 6. Tip Take your time, get out of car through window or sunroof in necessary. This is a job for the smallest driver of the family. Reverse car into container Keep slightly to the opposite side so you have more room to get out.
  7. 7. Tip Nail the wood blocks behind where the rear wheels will go in advance of loading the car, much more room! With 4x2 inch blocks of wood, chock in wheels. Behind, in front and on outside wall of wheel The floor of the container is made of wood. A nail gun will work great
  8. 8. Tip Make sure rope or tie downs come off the car lower than the body so that there is no chance of it rubbing during the journey With web ties, rope or car tie downs loop around the axle inside of each wheel and secure to tie hooks in container or twist round a piece of wood and nail gun rope into the floor to secure. This needs to be done to all 4 corners.
  9. 9. Tip Always reverse car in container. Its easy for Customs to inspect vin number on wind shield as well as re charging the battery at the destination with jumper cables if necessary Disconnect battery, tie off terminals and wrap with insulation tape. Leave windows open, doors unlocked, keys on dashboard, handbrake on and in 3rd gear or park
  10. 10. Skilled Carpenters Only! You can build a tier over the car to give you more space if necessary but its at your own risk and personally I don’t recommend it!
  11. 11. You can ship motorcycles the same way by either strapping to a pallet or securing to container floor. Motorbikes
  12. 12. Tip 8x4 plywood sheets work well behind the load bar if needed. Most things can be loaded in a container with some thought and preparation Use a telescopic load bar to keep things from falling down on the car.
