Yes. Many car shipping companies require you or a designated person to be present upon the pickup of your vehicle. It's because you'll need to sign a contract called "bill of lading" when you go to pick up the vehicle. If you're unable to pick up your vehicle, you can call the company prior to the pick-up date to confirm an alternate person (let's say your wife, friend, or relative) to be responsible for your vehicle. However, if there are any changes made to the pick-up or delivery location, after you've placed the order, additional charges may apply.
