Being prepared and knowing what to expect are key components to successful transport
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/21/2013 -- With the connectivity of the world comes the possibility of longer, more vast, commutes across countries, regions, even continents, as one moves to where a job is necessary. That is why car transport has become an ever-growing industry in the last several decades. Now, ASWD has created an infographic that takes into account what one must know when interested in utilizing a automobile transport service.
The infographic points out that preparedness is always the first step one must take when considering the best strategy for moving, pointing out it can take weeks for details to process. Of course, price is also an important factor, as moving a vehicle is not going to be the price of a happy-meal. One must be prepared for anything from $750-$4000 according to ASWD's infographic.
There are two primary options when dealing with a move, depending upon where an individual is interested in going. The use of a moving company or an international freight forwarder are the common options. The moving company often handles all the details including paperwork and transport. The freight forwarder is contracted by a transport service and organizes the final point distribution.
When shipping overseas, the latter is a more useful option, and those who choose such an option due to international destinations, there are extra options to consider. Knowing whether or not to use a roll-on/roll-off option, an exclusive container, or a 40-foot container is key. Prices can vary with these options.
As the infographic points out, it is very important to keep in mind all the taxes that must be involved in the process. Knowing how to handle paperwork is also key, as notarization is part of the process and ought not be overlooked. The lien holder letter, export declaration form, and declaration of dangerous goods is also of key importance.
Once all of the heavy-lifting of paper work is handed, final checks, tank fill-ups, and removal of valuables is important before the car is dropped off or picked up for service.
As the infographic depicts well, the process is not a single-day process, but when prepared for properly it can be done without extraneous headaches.
