Ship a Vehicle as a Present

Ship a Vehicle as a PresentHave you ever wanted to buy your kid a vehicle then went “darn, I wish they hadn’t gone to college!” Probably not, actually, but that’s beside the point – did you know that you can ship a vehicle as a present with a car shipping company? You really, truly can, though it is a bit different than if you were to ship a vehicle just for yourself. Granted, it’s not all that different, but it can be a bit tricky if you’re trying to keep the vehicle a secret from the person that you’re shipping it to. Really, we’re not sure how feasible that would be – at the very least, keeping a vehicle you are shipping to someone secret is going to involve communicating with someone else on their end in order to make sure the shipment is handled properly. Let us explain.

When you ship a vehicle, someone is going to have to be there at pickup to release the vehicle into the custody of the vehicle shipper. This is generally going to be you if you’re trying to ship a vehicle as a present to a friend or loved one. So that’s easy. But where it gets tricky is who is going to be there at delivery. It can’t be the person you’re giving the vehicle to unless you want to give everything away to them, so who does that leave? Well, the nice thing is that you can have just about anybody be there at delivery to receive the vehicle, so long as the carrier knows ahead of time who it is. This can be a friend, a neighbor, a loved one, your son’s former roommate from eight years ago – it doesn’t matter, so long as they’re there to sign for the vehicle, do an inspection report and make sure the vehicle is delivered properly and signed for.

So, basically put, you can ship a vehicle as a present so long as the people at pickup and delivery know what is going on. The carrier is not responsible for the receiving party seeing your vehicle, so make sure not to try to put anything…extra…on your carrier. They are there to help you but they are running a business and will not bend over backwards to accommodate your every whim. Keep this in mind and make sure that you have all your ducks in a row and everything accounted for before the carrier shows up – this will save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
