The only questions that are silly are those not asked. Before finalizing on auto shipping, ask questions about every step of the procedure. Request an auto transport quote, and ask any questions you may have about car shipping rates and services. The rates may vary based on whether you are using an open flatbed truck or enclosed auto transport. The distance of the journey, and door to door service may also factor into the price.
It is also important to inquire whether the auto transport company has insurance, and if so, how much the insurance covers. Remember that car shipping companies will not insure personal belongings that are left in the car.
If you request door to door auto transport, be sure to check that the truck will be physically able to access your home. Narrow streets, low hanging branches, or curves in the road sometimes make it impossible for the auto hauler to reach you. In such a case, make up with the driver to meet in a large open space near your home, such as a parking lot, where the vehicle can be loaded onto the truck.
