Sometimes life changes in unexpected ways and an opportunity presents itself that just cannot be missed. It may be a career change or a promotion that will mean a better salary and better benefits. But this prospect may mean moving to a place far away and so even if it looks better for raising your family it is still a big change.

If you decide that this new opportunity is worth making a major life change for than you need to organize all the aspects of a move. This does not just mean you need to move your furniture. You will have to consider what to do about car transport as well.

Depending upon how far your new home is, and how much of your moving costs are being picked up by your employer, you may decide to send your car instead of driving it. This is especially true if you have more than one car or you are moving across the country or to another country. Arranging for a company to take care of the car transport is very easy.

You begin by checking the yellow pages, or computer web sites, to find a company near you. Make sure it transports to wherever it is you are moving. Then get a quote. Be sure to get a few so you can compare costs. Even if you are not paying for it you want to find the best deal available. Also, while many companies will pay for your car they may not pay for your partner's.

There are some very useful things that you can do when preparing your for the car transport company to come pick up your car. Do not send an empty car that is a waste of all that space. Fill the trunk with boxes or kitchen supplies. There is plenty of room to put your microwave, coffee maker and/or blender.

Fill the front and back with clothes or other things that can fill up the space. The more you put in the more space you save in the moving truck. If you are paying a portion of the moving costs this will be of benefit. But even if you are not you may find it easier to pack up your vehicle as you prepare it for the car transport company.

Be sure that when you send your vehicle you remember to take your second set of tires. That may be what you need to put in your trunk or in the back seat. Also, make sure that you lock your car to prevent anything inside being stolen. Most companies who do car transport will drive the vehicle into the moving truck and then hand you back your keys.
