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. These loading photos not only serve as a precautionary measure but also provide a detailed record of how your vehicle was loaded and secured in the container. In the unlikely event of any damage or mishap during the transit, the photos can be invaluable in determining the cause and extent of the damage. This can help the shipping and cargo damage protection companies to identify and rectify any issues that may have caused the damage, and ensure that the same mistakes are not repeated in the future. Additionally, having clear and comprehensive loading photos can also help expedite the insurance claim process, allowing you to receive compensation for any losses or damages incurred during the shipping process. So, make sure to request for loading photos when shipping your vehicle overseas, as they can prove to be an essential tool in protecting your investment and peace of mind.
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.
