Mistakes to Avoid while Shipping your Car

If you are planning to ship your beloved and precious car, then you can choose from various car transport companies. However, all the companies serve the same services; there might be some or other differences in their service qualities. Therefore, you need to analyze the differences between the various car shipping companies while you are planning for your car shipment.

Do not pay extra money

The cost of car shipment fluctuates from company to company. Moreover, there might be different prices for different types of services by the same company. It may also vary according to your shipping address and location. You have to confirm and take all the details of the exact price rates at your shipping address before you confirm the final booking.

Do all the research to make sure that there are no hidden charges. However, also keep in your mind that cheaper is not always the best of anything. You can easily get the quotations of different companies to easily compare the charges of various shipping companies to select the best out of all of them.  However, if you are in a hurry or you want the delivery on any specific date then you might need to pay a bit more.

Take insurance coverage

The car shipping companies need to have authorized insurance in order to cover any damage to the car they are moving. You can also ask the company to give a copy of the insurance certificate and ensure that you understand exactly what coverage your car will have when it will be shipped to another place. If the insurance coverage of the company is insufficient, you can look into getting additional coverage from your own insurance company.

Collect all the necessary documents

Before shipping your car, most of the companies ask for certain documents before they confirm your shipment booking. The required documents usually include your insurance certificate and vehicle registration, as you have to prove to the company that the car is owned by you. To avoid any chaos, make sure that you have all the demanded documents assembled in the correct order.

Before shipment, the shipping company will do a thorough inspection of your car and make a note of all the issues on the inspection report. All the information gathered at the time of the inspection is very crucial and you have to ensure that the report is precise.

When you get your delivered at the desired location, you should again do an inspection of your car. If you find any patch of damage due to transportation, you must report it to the company and ensure that the transporter signs it.

Remove all the personal items

You must remove all the personal items from your car before shipping it. Although, it seems like a very smart idea to load your car with the stuff and let the stuff move with the car shipment, you should keep in mind that vehicle shipping companies are prohibited by law from shipping any vehicle that contains personal belongings.

However, some shipping companies do allow up to 100 lbs of your personal property to be stuffed in your car. The company won’t take any responsibility for your stuff if it gets damaged or goes missing. Furthermore, if your car was full of your belongings, the insurance company won’t cover any damages that are caused to the car. Hence, it is always great to ensure that your car is completely empty.

Conclusion

The car shipment might be a bit chaotic process but if you avoid some common mistakes while shipping your car then you make the entire shipping task easy and smooth.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
