The challenge with shipping salvaged and damaged cars is how to get them on the trailer if they don’t move. When buying from auctions like Copart & IAAI this is made possible due to a forklift. With a help of a fork lift cars that do not roll or steer are easily loaded onto the auto transporters. It is important to realize that it is the responsibility of the customers to unload the vehicle on delivery. If a forklift is not available a tow truck may need to be used at owner’s expense.
Auction will not load all vehicles, if a car is too heavy or oversize a wrecker will need to be hired to load. It is also important to realize that during loading with a forklift a car is likely to get damaged.
