Can the Driver Pay for the Vehicle When it's Picked Up
The answer to this question is no. Carriers cannot take any form of payment such as checks, cash, etc. to pay a seller, dealer, or auction when a vehicle is picked up. You must arrange for these payments before sending the carrier.
Carriers will however pay some storage fees out of pocket from time to time and will expect reimbursement for those fees in cash or certified funds and the time of delivery.
