What happens when your brand new BMW 3-Series arrives at your doorstep and there is a big dent in the drivers side door? Typically, the auto hauler would mark it on their Auto Transport Bill of Lading report, customer would sign it, and the haulers insurance would get involved. What happens, though, when the haulers handwriting is not legible and the insurance claim gets rejected? This is happening more and more as truck drivers are trying to get in and out in a flash. Important things start slipping such as the proper documentation and care for detail on these reports. Most of the time they are not going to be an issue, but what happens when there is damage to a vehicle or the vehicle isn’t in the same condition it was when it left the pick up location?
This scenario is where Auto Transport Receipt has everyone covered. By making the Bill of Lading digital in a PDF form there is no mistaking handwriting or losing a document. The auto transport bill of lading is typed out perfecting, listing the exact damage to the exact part of the vehicle. No guessing required. The form that has the damaged marked is saved by the haulers email, saved to the haulers device, saved in the customers email, etc. No insurance company can say that they cannot make out the bill of lading document any longer or say they never received the document. Everything is saved and the hauler and customer can go back and see they physically sent it and what email address it was sent to and what time and day it was sent.
It is very uncommon for damage to occur to a vehicle being transported, but when it does happen it would be nice for the situation to be taken care of accordingly. Time to get Auto Transport Receipt and time to start making life as a hauler easier.
