Can I Ship a Vehicle With no Brakes?
As you know, shipping a vehicle is a long and arduous – not to mention expensive – process. Shipping a standard vehicle is tough enough, but shipping a car that has something wrong with it is another thing entirely. And there’s few things tougher – in the car shipping industry, that is – than trying to ship a vehicle with no brakes. Brakes are important, as you probably know if you drive a car. It’s nice being able to stop that thousand pounds of death you’re riding in, isn’t it?
How hard is it to ship a vehicle with no brakes?
It’s pretty tough. Brakes are kind of important when you’re shipping a car, as they let the carrier, you know, stop the car. They load and unload vehicles by driving them on and off the truck, so if they can’t stop the car under their own power they’ll have to use another method. Oftentimes this means winching the vehicle onto the truck. With a winch, a carrier has more control over the vehicle, and they should be able to stop the car with the winch while loading and unloading.
Of course, not all carriers have winches, which is why it’s important that you tell your shipping company whether or not your vehicle can stop as soon as possible. This will save you a lot of time versus not saying a thing to anyone. Carriers have to know all about what’s going on with your vehicle before they ship it. This includes knowing if the vehicle is running and driving, whether it can roll and brake, whether or not it steers, what condition it is in, and much more. These are important for loading, transporting and unloading your vehicle safely. Make sure to speak to a live agent to learn more.
