Clean out the car internally and take away all personal belongings and other things from the front and back seats.

Do not forget to have your car serviced before shipping, and also make sure that it is free of fluid leaks too. In case, your car leaks fluids and further loaded on a huge carrier, the fluids might also drip down onto other cars and may cause serious damage.
