What documents do I need when shipping a car?
Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Los Angeles to San Francisco, you or someone on your behalf must release the vehicle to the carrier at pick-up.
The person at pick-up will also need to sign a Bill of Lading (BOL). The BOL is a receipt and an inspection report. When the carrier inspects the car you need to check with that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.
San Francisco is not Los Angeles
Moving up north, to San Francisco, is a big decision, but surely there are many reasons for you to relocate. Whether that is a new job in the Silicon Valley, or simply change of scenery, – fog instead of smog, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are moving to San Francisco! Without a doubt, Northern California has a lot to offer.
Whether you want to go skiing or wake boarding, surfing in the cold Pacific ocean or sailing, – you can surely find it all in the San Fran bay area.
With its spectacular views and plenty of places to ski northern California is certainly a gem. Lake Tahoe is less than three-hour drive from San Francisco. Are you a fan of the great outdoors? There is an abundance of national parks in close proximity where you can go hiking and biking, and reconnect with the nature.
Golden Gate National Recreational Area and Muir Woods National Monument to name a couple. And if you are keen on wines, Napa and Sonoma Valley – the world’s most famous wine regions, are just a short ride away. Keep in mind all the small and beautiful wineries as well. So, welcome to San Francisco!
