  How do I prepare my car for transport?

Any loose parts or specialty items should be removed or secured. Antennas should be lowered of removed if possible. There should be a proper supply of antifreeze in the radiator. The gasoline tank should not be more than a quarter full. Make sure the battery is secured, with no leaks and fluid levels should be low enough to allow for expansion in transit. Any tears in convertible tops should be sealed to avoid further damage during transit. Alarm devices should be deactivated. Finally, make sure that the vehicle is clean to allow for an accurate inspection at the pickup time.
