There are times when you might need to ship your vehicle from one part of the country to another. Maybe you have purchased a car online or perhaps you are relocating. There are several reasons why it might be worthwhile to have your car shipped. One of the main reasons people choose to have their car shipped is for convenience. That said, it could backfire if you are required to be present when your vehicle arrives. This begs the question, “Can I assign someone else to pick up my car?”
There are a number of reasons why it might not be convenient for you to pick up your vehicle. Perhaps you cannot arrange to leave work, you might be out of town, or you might not live in the same city where the car is being delivered. In any case, it is possible to arrange for someone else to pick up your car. You just need to make sure you arrange this ahead of time. If you send someone else at the last minute to pick up your vehicle without notifying the car shipping company, there is a good chance they will not release your vehicle. However, you can make arrangements in advance to have someone pick up your car. The auto shipping company will just need this information ahead of time. If, by chance, you have a last-minute change of plans and cannot arrange for someone to pick up your vehicle, many companies will give you the option of storing your vehicle in a terminal until you are able to retrieve it.
Always check with the auto shipping company ahead of time to check out their policy regarding who can pick up your vehicle. It is also a good idea to remind anyone who will be picking up your vehicle to have their driver’s license with them for proof of identity.
