Hansen's car carrier

Is it Safe to Ship my Vehicle?

Shipping via car carrier is a safe and trusted way to transport your vehicle. Here are five reasons why:

1. Drivers are trained and experienced

Reputable and long-standing car shipping companies employ professional drivers who are highly skilled and experienced in vehicle transportation. Their expertise significantly reduces the risks of damage during transit.

2. Vehicles are secured

A car carrier is designed with safety in mind and equipped with specialized tie-down equipment to secure vehicles firmly in place. These tie-downs are placed over the tires and prevent shifting during transportation. Drivers inspect the tie-downs thoroughly as a required part of the safety checks to ensure all the vehicles are secure throughout the journey.

3. Trucks are designed for safety

Car carriers are designed to accommodate multiple vehicles simultaneously, and they’re configured to ensure optimal safety and protection during transit. The layout allows for safe and efficient loading and unloading.

4. Regulations prevent accidents and damage

Car carriers operate under strict regulations set by local, provincial and federal authorities. These rules maintain cross-country safety standards for auto shipping. To keep their licences and permits valid, car shipping companies must comply with weight limits, load guidelines and road safety regulations. Strict adherence to these rules prevents accidents and protects the vehicles being transported and drivers on the road.

5. Insurance provides extra protection

Reputable and professional car transportation companies will insure your vehicle for coverage in the unlikely event of damage. You can also purchase additional insurance coverage options for extra peace of mind. Hansen’s is an auto shipping company with its own claims department so you get a quick response if you ever need to make a claim.
