At Navtrans we complete such
tasks regularly. If you will be including such vehicles in your move,
tell our representative at the time of the estimate. These large items
should definitely not be left as a last minute addition. They require
special handling and planning.
Moving cars, boats and recreational vehicles can be a real challenge.
We take into consideration the type of vehicle or boat, cost, your delivery
needs, the capacity available for moving the item on a truck, the number
of loads/unloads the truck will be making, and other factors.
There is little preparation for a car. Make sure valuable items are removed.
For instance, never put the title in the glove compartment. For overseas
moves, you must not pack any other items in the vehicle.You should leave
a small amount of gasoline in the tank, enough to allow loading and unloading.
Boats require more care and can vary a great deal. Ask us how to best
to prepare your boat for transport.
The time of year will influence pre-move preparation.
Recreational vehicles are very popular.
As always, be sure gasoline is drained before loading Motorcycles, Mini-bikes,
Mopeds Scramblers, Dune buggies, All Terrain Vehicles, Jet Skis, Snowmobiles
gas powered tools, such as Tractors, Lawnmowers, Gas grills and BBQ's,
Strimmers, Snowthrowers and Gas or kerosene heaters, should also be drained
of gasoline or other combustible fuels. Blades should be secured and wrapped
for handling and safety locks engaged.
Complete a detailed evaluation before turning vehicles over to the carrier,
noting any existing damage, scratches, dents, etc. The carrier will complete
an inventory, listing any pre-existing damage. Be sure you agree with
the description before signing the inventory or releasing the vehicle.
Upon delivery, check the condition carefully and note any damage on the
inventory. While damage is rare, it can occur
