What to Expect When Your Vehicle is Delivered

Upon your vehicle’s arrival to the destination, conduct another thorough inspection comparing the current state of your vehicle against your records. Having a record of the vehicle’s condition before and after transport is important in the rare occasion that it has been damaged. If you cannot conduct the inspection yourself, assign a trusted representative to inspect the vehicle on your behalf. If you are meeting the transporter at night, bring a flashlight so you can inspect the vehicle on site. Keep in mind that your vehicle will have traveled just as if you drove it yourself. It will face the same road debris, dust, rain, snow, etc.
