Auto Movers in India

Most auto transport companies require some preparation to be made in advance to the vehicle being picked up for shipping.
Following is a list of the pre-move activities carried by movers and packers:
1. Inspection of the vehicle is done by the company's expert in the presence of a customer / his representative.
2. The vehicle needs to be operable (though some companies move inoperable vehicles for an extra charge).
3. The vehicle should be free from any fluid leaks.
4. All personal belongings need to be removed from the vehicle prior to shipping. It is against the law for any vehicle carrier to accept a vehicle with personal items inside.
5. Hazardous materials cannot be transported in this manner.
6. Roof racks or other non-permanent items must also be removed.
7. The alarm system in vehicle must be disabled or disconnected.
8. All antennas must be removed or fully retracted.
9. The passenger cars / jeep / multi-utility vehicles etc, which are in the registered category, may be imported without a license. This can be obtained on payment of full customs duty by certain categories of importers.
