Hi, thanks for visiting Movers.com! If you need to ship your car engine from California to Arkansas, you'll be happy to know that there are plenty of options available for you. Large, heavy items such as a car engine are not easy to move or ship, which means you'll need to consult a professional moving company to assist you with the move.
However, if you're only looking to ship the car engine and not the entire vehicle, most moving companies will not take it because it may fall below their minimum weight requirements for a moving load and you wo not be able to consult an auto transport company either. If that's the case, you'll find that hiring small movers
or even specialty movers
who are experienced in transporting large items such as these, will be your best option under these circumstances.
Hiring special movers
- They have the experience and expertise necessary to transport your belongings safely and securely. While you may not have the moving skills that are needed to transport an item as big and as heavy as a car engine, special movers certainly do and can take the proper measures to ensure that your items are moved safely and securely and are not damaged during the move. Trying to handle such a move without the help of professional movers can result in damage or injury.
- You'll save yourself money and time. In the long run, the amount of time and money you'll likely spend trying to ship your engine without professional movers will be less than what you'd end up paying for special movers to move your items for you.
Preparing your doors for the move
To prepare your engine to be shipped, you should first have them carefully wrapped in moving blankets or moving pads to ensure that they wo not sustain any damage while they are being shipped. You do not want to receive your engine damaged and unable to work, so it's important that you wrap it securely and protect it prior to the move.
