Yes and no. We need someone there to sign the contract (also known as the Bill of Lading) between you and the truck driver. If you can’t be there, make sure you have a friend or relative that can be there in order to sign the bill of lading and avoid unnecessary delays. Someone is also required to be present to do a walk-around inspection with the truck driver. This is to note any damages to the vehicle before transport. So make sure you arrange for someone to be there if you cannot be.
