That all depends on how you plan to ship it and where you are shipping it to. Give us some details. I would start with cleaning it extremely well and then placing some type of shipping wrap around it. It is almost like plastic wrap. But if you are shipping in a closed trailer then not as much need for that.

Post Prepere my vehicle

@RADR actually i am planning to ship my vehicle from Boston to Las Vegas. I've decided to move my vehicle through enclosed trailer. Do you think that it might be best for car delivery??? But i think that there are many factors might be harmful for my vehicle. Now let me now that how can i prepare my vehicle for the best transportation?? I need to choose another transport company or not??

Thanks

Actually, I don't know how much time it will take to ship my vehicle but I want to ship my vehicle within 3 days if possible. Because i am looking for the fast and secure moving services. You can suggest me about reliable companies or services provider. I am worried because first time i am going to hire transport company.

I don't know of any companies in the states, but when I moved out west I had my RX-7 in the semi that had my furniture. The moving guys take special precautions with the car to make sure it doesn't go no where. I suggest a real good wax as there will be moving blankets covering the car.

Other than that, the driver himself is responsible for any damaged so I wouldn't be too worried.

I would like to say thanks for your suggestion. I've got reliable company services in Boston and really appreciate it. My friend helped me to find it. Through this company i have got reliable quotes and shipped my vehicle within 2 days rather than 3 or more. I suggest you that you can also get quick services whenever you need for shipping from Boston.

By the way everybody, George54 is an auto transport spam bot. It's a computer program talking to you, not a real person. So just ignore it.

Not sure how you know its a bot but I agree that all but one of "his" posts are related to auto transport and that one other is completely generic.

If its a Mustang owner/fan plugging his company, he should make that clear. If it is a bot, it should be banned; no need for members to waste time trying to help some bot with a made up issue.

There has been a rash of auto transport bots lately in the classic forums. I've reported all their posts, including George's twice, and have yet to see any action taken.

I'm an administrator in a forum based out of my town and we have horrible problems with bots. When you deal with them all the time you recognize them immediately as they have distinguishing characteristics, and George is as cliche as they go. I could give you a dissertation on posting style and behavior of bots, but instead I'll just tell you that when I went to the profile information of a different bot, it's 'real' name was "George54." So, go figure. It just means they're all auto-transport bots and they're all originating from the same place.

Bots come onto forums as new members and start to make generic and non-sensical posts to 'fit in' so they seem like a real poster. Then they finally slip in their spam link, just as George did. Sometimes this is because some forums have now (including mine) implemented anti-spam measures where the first X posts of a new poster have to be approved. Bots get around this by posting the generic and non-sensical (but non-spamming nonetheless) posts until the posts are no longer under review. Regardless, a savvy admin or moderator can identify a bot usually by its second, if not first post and deny the post.

Mister! What you want? I am not promoting any site but i would say that i am living in Boston and related to different auto transport companies. I ship my vehicles at daily base. I know better about some of those companies and their bots. I no need to share this link but i just to tell my viewers that this is also best for choose if they are looking for best shipping in Boston.
Second thing that you have mention in this post that there is no email id in my profile so i want to tell you that i don't want to share my personal information with others because i don't want to contact anyone through my personal emails. I am just sharing and posting knowledge. Yes one question now you'll ask to me is that if i knew all about it so why i asked here?
Because i wanted to know that how much people know about it?
That's clear. If you have any question about it so i am here.
Last thing, I love my Boston city and there is no forum which is unrelevent to auto transport and mostly post are too old.
If you think that i am a bot yet so i am ready to leave this site. Otherwise you can blocked as a senior member and i respect your decision. Because i think that I've no experience and knowledge that how to talk in forum.

Thanks.

Verdict: TOTALLY a bot.

Exhibit A: Check out the profile of fellow bot RichardA92:

Ford Mustang Forums - View Profile: RichardA92

Real name: George54. Location: Las Vegas, NV

Exhibit B: George54's real name listed under his profile: "George Eric." Name listed for his MySpace: Charles Miller.

Exhibit 3: Meet bot Charle Miller: Ford Mustang Forums - View Profile: Charle Miller

Who posts here: https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...s-houston.html

Exhibit 4: NOBODY does MySpace or AIM anymore, let alone Yahoo messenger. These are all auto-entries.

Exhibit 5: All three of the bots stated above have a hard on for auto transport

Mods get these goddamn bot spammers out of here.
