Auto Shipping FAQ: Personal Belongings

We’ve started up a new segment on our blog that we’ll be doing every once in a while, where we talk about some of the more frequently asked questions in the auto transport industry. This question is actually covered on our Auto Shipping FAQ page in more detail, and you can follow the link to read more frequently asked auto transport questions.

Our first questions is this:

Can I put personal belongings in my vehicle?

The simple answer is “no.” Auto transport carriers are not licensed to carry household goods, so technically you aren’t allowed to put anything in a vehicle you’re shipping at all. However, unofficially, most auto transporters don’t object to light objects being in the trunk, so long as they’re completely out of sight. You should probably talk to your specific auto shipper about how they feel about personal belongings, because really it all depends on who you’re shipping with.

Make sure to fill out our free online quote request form to get a no-hassle quote immediately. You can also contact us any time at 800-930-7417 to speak to a representative. We work with only top-rated, reliable auto transport carriers who are fully licensed and insured. So use American Auto Shipping to get the best shipping services for your needs.
