Wash the Car

Was it the previous week, you washed the vehicle? Then dust and dirt will be present on the car’s exterior. The dents, dings will remain hidden. So, before shipping, take care to wash the vehicle properly. This will help you take notice of any previous damages that have happened. On our part, we will take precaution to deliver the car in safe condition.

Our supervisor, before loading the vehicle on the specific truck will take note of the condition of your car. He will ask you to sign the vehicle condition report.

Interior of Car

The car trailer is a long vehicle and during the move, there are umpteen chances the car may move a little inside. This may cause the inside items present in the car to move around and fall. So, please keep the interiors of the car clean. Please do not forget to remove your electronic cables, chargers, air fresheners, portable DVD players, phone holders, pens, spare changes and other items.


Car alarms are meant for other purposes. Ensure you make our driver’s journey comfortable by disabling the alarm.


Do not forget the fact, that your car is getting transported to the new location. Our driver is not going to take the car by road. So, there is no reason for filling the petrol tank/diesel tank or other. If you have a filled tank, then your car will get heavy. Do not forget to leave little fuel in the car before loading the car in our transportation truck.


It is mandatory to check your car completely for any leaks. In case of a leak, our Pune packers and movers team will refuse service. Other companies will advise to first have the leak fixed. Oil dripping in the vehicle during the process can put the driver and the transportation vehicle in a dangerous situation.

Another unfortunate event can happen. Usually, we do not transport only one car in the trailer. If your car is leaking, and if it is located on the top most part of the trailer, the leakage will fall immediately on the other cars.

Tire Pressure

An over-inflated tire or under-inflated tire can cause problems during loading or unloading process. So, it is better to check the tire pressure and keep it at perfect levels.

Remove Accessories

Have you added extra bumpers to your car? Have you also added other accessories? Then kindly remove them. The reason, they can get damaged during the move.

Can you remove the antenna? Please do. It is also advisable to move the side mirrors at a safe position. Also check for luggage tracks, removable bumpers and skis. If needed, you can safeguard the external mirrors or other parts of your car with bubble wrap or other sheets. If you have special requirements, our packers and movers team can always provide the required assistance during car transportation services.
