Before you choose any auto transport company you should be made fully aware of their insurance that protects your vehicle during the shipping process. Progressive Auto Relocation can offer you peace of mind while your vehicle is in transit by having it insured by the carrier, as we are a certified auto transport company. Every tractor/trailer holds a full liability policy and a cargo policy that covers the vehicle during transit. This insurance policy is required and is mandatory by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
To make this process as uncomplicated as possible we provide the following information. Here are some helpful tips you may not be aware of when it comes to coverage for your vehicle:
- The cargo insurance policy in effect during transportation covers damage to the vehicle in the way of scratches, dings, dents, and gouges. It also covers neglect in loading, unloading and transportation of the vehicle by the driver. Any resulting damage would be addressed to the cargo policy in effect by the carrier.
- Before your car is shipped we provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare it -- the insurance does not cover personal items left in the vehicle.
- The driver inspects the vehicle for any pre-existing damage before loading you're more than welcome to make a list of anything you are aware of or even take a couple of pictures of something in particular
- The driver will perform the same inspection process when he delivers the vehicle. His condition report (bill of lading) will provide you with an opportunity to make note of anything that may have occurred during shipping. If damage occurs he will do our best to rectify the situation or reimburse you for any repairs that your vehicle may need.
As a transport company that values its customers above anything else we want you to know that the driver will take the utmost care when shipping your vehicle and his auto carrier insurance is just one of the ways we do that. We want you to feel secure that when you ask us to ship your vehicle that it will be done the right way. With Progressive Auto Relocation you can rest assured it will.
