Terms and Conditions
DAMAGE CLAIMS AND TERMS
Showroom Transport provides you the convenience and protection of handling your needs through a select network of transporters across the US, each of whom has a history of dependability and are fully licensed and properly insured. Transporters who fail to meet our standards are not accepted into the network and those who do not maintain them are quickly removed. Therefore, problems or damage claims will be minimal. In the event you would have a claim, it would be the responsibility of the assigned transporter to file it with their insurance carrier. However, we do ask you to immediately advise us of any claim. Then, part of our service to you is to facilitate the prompt and proper handling of it and to do everything possible to obtain a rapid settlement for you. Showroom Transport appreciates and thanks you for your vehicle transport business. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
