The answer to this question depends on your shipping needs. While most cars are completely safe on an open carrier, sometimes shipping enclosed may be more appropriate. When shipping enclosed your car is completely guarded from the elements.

Can I load my vehicle with personal items?

PAL strongly recommends against leaving personal items in vehicles during shipment. Transportation Cargo Insurance only covers the vehicle being shipped and does not cover damage resulting from personal items mobilizing during transport.

Do I need to be present during pick-up / delivery?

The condition report requires a customer signature at the time of pick-up and delivery. In some situations, it is possible to arrange a representative to sign for the customer. To ensure safe transport, we thoroughly inspect every vehicle prior to loading. Upon delivery, we cross-reference this inspection, making sure the vehicle is in the same condition it was before transport.

How do I prepare my vehicle for shipment?

To prepare your vehicle for shipment, please insure the following steps have been taken:

  2. Make sure fuel-tanks contain a quarter of a tank or less.
  3. The vehicle has been cleaned allowing for a proper inspection report.
  4. All personal items have been removed.
