100 lb Limit on Extra Weight
There are a lot of things to consider when you plan on transporting your vehicle. If you’re selling your house and planning to move, how you plan on transporting yourself, and any items you have, are a big factor. It’s very important to keep in mind, that most auto shippers generally only allow up to 100 pounds of extra weight confined to your car’s trunk. This can potentially be a frustrating part of your moving plan, where as a lot of people assume that it’s OK to pack their vehicle full of household items. Remember that the auto transporters have to be very careful with how much extra weight is on their truck to avoid being fined by the highway patrol. This is why there is a limit of 100 pounds confined only to the trunk of your vehicle.
Keep in mind, the auto shipper is not responsible for any personal items that you decide to transport with your vehicle. It’s only the vehicle itself that is fully insured during the transport. Considering that, it is advised that if you plan on transporting any items with your vehicle, that they are not valuable or sentimental items. How you transport yourself, your children, and your pets, is up to you and not the auto transporter. It might be a pain at first knowing you can’t pack your house in your car, but it’s best to know the rules and avoid any surprise charges at the end of the car shipment.
