Things to consider when transporting your car using a backloading service

Automotive Blog

If you're moving interstate, without having enough things for it to be worth hiring a moving truck, backloading is one of the options you should consider for transporting your belongings. It's essentially a service that provides a service of moving a small amount of things over any distance. An option in particular that has become popular is to hire a backloading company to move cars. If you're moving interstate, or just very far, and don't want to have to go back and forth to pick up your other car at the location you're moving from, it might be worth considering hiring a backloading car carrier service.

It's cheaper and greener

The option of transporting cars by using a backloading service is often cheaper than other options. This is because backloading companies, as opposed to other types of removalist companies, fill up all the space they have in their trucks before making a trip. This means your car will be transported along with other people's cars, and the cost of the transport is split between customers. Hiring a moving truck will cause you to pay for the entire truck yourself. Backloading is, for this reason, also the most environmentally friendly way of transporting cars, as one trip is all it takes to transport many cars. This causes less harmful gases to be released into the environment than if all the cars drove on their own or if they were to be transported in a truck each.

It takes preparation beforehand

To get your car transported on a backloader car carrier, there are a few things you need to make sure of. Firstly, your car must function, as it needs to be driven up and down the ramp. Further, you should tell the backloading company about your car's specifics as you are booking the service. They need to know the exact dimensions of your car to know how much space it's going to take up in the carrier. This is important for them to know how much they should charge you and how many vehicles they are going to fit in this particular transport. You should also have an inspection done by a professional before the car is picked up by the backloading company. This is to ensure the condition of the car before the move, in case it would get damaged during the transport. Lastly, you should make sure to remove all personal items out of your car. These items are usually not included in the company's insurance, and you might end up having to pay for them if they were to gets lost.
