Is Shipping a Car Safe During COVID?

Is car shipping safe?

Certainly! As long as the customer and the driver maintain a safer environment, shipping services are not vulnerable. Cars can be safely transported – just make sure to put in the necessary efforts, including prepping yourself and the vehicle to minimize the spread of COVID during loading and unloading.

How to prep the car for shipping?

To make the trip a safe one for yourself and the driver, here’s what you, as a customer, can do:

-Sanitize your hands 

-Spray and wipe the insides of your car with a nontoxic good quality disinfectant.

-Properly wash the exteriors before shipping the car.

-Remove the items that aren’t part of your car as the driver assumes no liability over your personal belongings.

-Place a safety kit for the driver, including disinfectant wipes, sanitizer, gloves, masks, etc.

-Give your vehicle a quick overall check to ensure it’s in proper condition if the car is functional.

Try to remain one step ahead to ensure you’re providing the driver the same amount of protection that you’d expect for yourself.

What safety measures should you apply when dropping off the vehicle?

When you’re out to meet the driver for handing over the vehicle, exercise the necessary care. This helps you stay safe and not to jeopardize others’ safety as well. So, wear a mask to cover your nose and mouth. If you don’t have one, you can also cover the face with materials, as suggested by the CDC.  Maintaining a safe distance goes without saying so stand at least 6 feet apart.
