Remember to also clean your vehicle before shipping.

It’s important to thoroughly inspect your vehicle for prior damage, scratches, and dents. Take as many photographs of your vehicle as possible from all angles as a proof. If any damage occurs in transit, you can quickly make a claim and have the documented proof you need. Although damage is unlikely, it’s better to cover your basics before you ship a car internationally.
