Auto shipping regulations can be complex and challenging to navigate for dealerships. However, understanding and complying with these regulations is critical to ensuring the safe and legal transport of vehicles. In this blog post, we’ll provide a guide to auto shipping regulations and compliance for dealerships, and how Rite Way Transport can help you meet these requirements.
- Federal Regulations
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the auto transport industry in the United States. These regulations cover several areas, including driver qualifications, hours of service, and vehicle maintenance. It is important for dealerships to work with transport companies that are compliant with FMCSA regulations to ensure the safe and legal transport of their vehicles.
- State Regulations
In addition to federal regulations, there may be state regulations that dealerships need to comply with when transporting vehicles. These regulations may cover areas such as licensing, insurance, and vehicle weight limits. It is important for dealerships to be aware of these regulations and work with transport companies that are compliant with state regulations.
- International Regulations
When transporting vehicles across borders, dealerships need to comply with international regulations. These may include customs requirements, tariffs, and taxes. It is important for dealerships to work with transport companies that are familiar with international regulations to ensure compliance and avoid delays and additional costs.
- Insurance Requirements
Transport companies are required to carry insurance to protect against damage or loss of vehicles during transport. Dealerships should verify that the transport company they are working with has adequate insurance coverage to protect their vehicles.
