How to ship a car

 How to ship a car with Paragon Auto Transport

Here are a few things to know when shipping a car across country with Paragon Auto Transport.

1.Wash your car thoroughly even if will be shipped on an open trailer. You want to be able to note any chips, dings, nicks or other cosmetic damage accurately.
2.Don't fill the gas tank of the car. If the tank is low, between 1/8th to 1/4th of a tank, this will save quite a bit of weight. It is ok if the tank is full, but not preferred.
3.You will need to remove any household or personal goods from the car, it is against DOT policy in every state to transport them in a car during auto shipping.
4.Secure or remove any loose parts or specialty items from your car such as ground effects, spoilers, or fog lights.
5.Ship convertibles with the top up and secured properly. Try to seal any holes or open seams in the top to prevent air or moisture from causing damage. If you cannot raise the top, you should attempt to cover it with a secure fitting tarp that can resist high winds.
6.Make sure the battery is charged, that the tires have proper inflation and top off all of the fluids on the vehicle and let the driver know if there are any leaks.
7.Prepare a careful list of any operational problems or steps necessary to start, stop, or drive your vehicle on and off of the trailer.
8. Make sure you and the driver go over the condition of your car at pickup, the auto transport driver will do a full condition report of your car before he loads the unit. Be sure to look it over carefully and retain a copy.
9. Check the condition report at delivery for any changes.
10. Call you Paragon Auto Transport agent with any questions regarding shipping your car across country. 

Paragon Transport offers open car shipping & enclosed auto transport

 An open car carrier is uncovered, more frequently used and is normally cheaper than enclosed car carriers. However, your vehicle will be exposed to the elements of nature while being transported.Enclosed car shipping is a car carrier that has a covered shipping area, and is most commonly used when shipping an expensive vehicle or classic car that you wish to protect. If your vehicle will be traveling cross-country and going through some dry and desert territory, you may consider using a closed trailer to protect it from wind-blown sand and heat. Note that closed trailers usually cost much more.
