How Auto Shippers Protect Your Vehicle from Damage During Transport

Carrier 7Damage to vehicles while they are being shipped is fairly rare, but on the whole it’s something that can happen to anyone at any time. Take this British car transport truck – you wouldn’t want that to happen to your vehicle, right? All on fire and everything, that’s not good for anyone.

Luckily, it’s rare. Quite rare, in fact, as there are only a handful of videos on YouTube that even show a car transport truck on fire, or losing loads to whatever.

The reason why it doesn’t happen often is because auto shipping companies go to great lengths to protect the vehicles they are shipping. In this blog we’ll detail some of the ways that auto shippers protect your vehicle from damage during transport.

One thing that auto transport companies do is secure your vehicle tightly via chains or other secure mechanisms after they load them. Making sure the parking brake is on, every auto transport driver will secure your vehicle to their truck, to ensure that it does not move while it is being shipped.

This is good, obviously, as it prevents cars from rolling into one another or off the truck. Most of the time chains will be used – big, heavy chains – to secure your vehicle. They’ll usually loop them through the wheels, or more specifically the rims; if they can’t, they usually have a backup location they can secure your vehicle to to ensure it doesn’t go anywhere.

Auto transport drivers are also happy to show you how they will secure your vehicle at pickup, if you are interested in learning more (you can also learn more at our videos section, where we actually have a video showing how the loading process works).

Of course, it’s easier to protect a vehicle that is in an enclosed trailer than on the back of an open auto transport truck, namely because it’s in an enclosed trailer and it’s harder to screw up a car when it’s literally protected from anything that could happen to it other than another semi slamming into the side of the truck.

Catastrophic accidents and losses are incredibly rare in the industry precisely because of the safeguards that auto shipping companies put on their drivers, and the lengths that they will go to ensure that the vehicles they are shipping are protected.

If they screw up and damage your vehicle, they don’t just lose the load, they lose money, because they have to pay for all those damages, and no one wants to do that – but since it’s required by law that they do, there’s not much auto shipping companies can do other than make sure that the vehicles arrive in the same condition they left in.
