Picking up your car after transport will require the same attention to detail you exhibited before the car was loaded onto the truck for transport. Make sure you have all of your paperwork in order before picking up your car. This paperwork includes a condition report on your car before transport, auto shipping insurance, pictures of your car, and other paperwork that might have been given to you.

This will make scheduling an inspection much easier.
