Also, clean the car and inspect it for any pre-existing damages, and take pictures or videos to document them. Make sure the car has less than a quarter tank of gas and is fully operational, with no leaks or mechanical issues.

  4. Choosing the right type of auto transport in Texas is important. There are two main types of car transport in Texas: open and closed. Open transport is more affordable but exposes your car to the elements. Enclosed transport provides more protection but is more expensive.

If the items add more than 100 pounds of extra weight, the driver will probably work out a fair fee as compensation for the added weight to the shipment.
