It is the third largest city in the Bay Area and the eighth most populated city in the state. In 2011, Oakland was ranked 10th on a list of the most walkable cities in the country. This is because it has more than 50 neighborhoods, each with its own unique character.

          Precautionary Measures to Consider

          You need to consider several factors when shipping your car, some of which may result in a huge penalty or your car being sent back to the port.  Our specialists have prepared a vehicle transport preparation checklist for your convenience.

          • Make sure the vehicle with propane tanks are delivered with empty tanks and marked “gas-free
          • Remove fire extinguishers from the vehicle before shipping
          • All personal and removable items not fixed to the vehicle should be removed
          • Keep your car clean for a quick inspection
          • Ensure your car is in working order and anti-theft devices are deactivated
          • For electric vehicles, make sure the battery is between 45-50% charged
          • The fuel tank should be 1/4 full, more than that can delay your vehicle shipping
          • Have a set of keys available for the Department of Agriculture inspection
