Vehicle Loading Photos: Why You Need Them
The importance of having photos taken while your vehicle is being loaded in a container cannot be understated. It provides a point of reference for when and how your vehicle was strapped down and secured for its journey overseas. If any damage was to happen during international shipping, the photos would be used by the shipping and the marine insurance companies to figure out what went wrong.
Loading photos aren't only useful to protect yourself when something goes wrong, it is also required by certain customs offices around the world. For example, Japanese customs specifically ask for photos to be taken during loading to avoid having to open and inspect the container upon its arrival to Japan. By taking loading photos, you will be avoiding extra fees and inspection charges.
