Only a 1/4 tank of Fuel When Shipping a Vehicle

Fuel 2When shipping a vehicle, one of the most important things that you can do is to make sure that your vehicle is in top shape to actually be transported. This means that it runs and drives, can roll, brake and steer, starts up okay, and that all the fluids are at their proper levels for transportation.

Prepping a vehicle for transport really isn’t all that difficult; most of the time it’s just making sure that it’s in good working order, like it should be, and if it isn’t running or working just let someone know ahead of time so they can adjust their prices and services accordingly.

One thing that a lot of people don’t realize, though, is that you should only have a quarter (1/4) of a tank of fuel in your vehicle when you ship it, and for several reasons.

The main reason why you should only have a quarter-tank of gas in your vehicle when you ship it is the fact that fuel is heavy, and weight is a serious consideration that auto shippers have to take into account when they ship vehicles.

Auto shippers – and, really, any long-haul truck – is required to be under specific weight limits. Weight limits are put in place mostly for infrastructure considerations, as many bridges and overpasses have weight limits as well.

These are really high, of course, and have to take into account vehicles that have more than their fair share of weight (for instance, U-Haul trucks, etc), but long-haul trucks still have to weigh in at various weigh stations along the way.

A quarter of a tank of gas in your vehicle will be plenty for your shipper to load and unload your vehicle and also enough for you to drive your vehicle to a gas station and get it fueled up at delivery.

Auto transporters can’t have more weight than they are allotted, so one of the first things they do will make sure that there is nothing in your vehicle that should not be there and then make sure you don’t have too much fuel in your vehicle when you ship it.

If you do, you may have to siphon it out yourself or possibly drive it off, which can take a lot of time and end up costing you more at pickup. To avoid this, simply get that fuel out of the vehicle before the carrier shows up and you should be fine.
