2021 taycan picked up in May. Great ride. Damaged on auto transportation truck to Florida. Will fight it out with carrier and insurance company insisting only on PORSCHE approved parts and collision center. I was told that they will have to take car to PORSCHE to shut down battery in order to work on it and I will lose my settings, most likely. If this is true, is there any way that I can avoid that problem? Thanks to anyone who is responding and thanks to those who have responded to my Elementary questions in the past.

Ugh I just want to say I'm sorry you had this experience. I shipped a car ONCE and it was a nightmare. Fortunately no damage but it went "missing" for several weeks. Never again, when I need to relocate I just drive it now.

I shipped my 458 spider from CA to Hawaii a few wears ago and the roof panels were damaged in shipping. Kind of put me off the process...

That would do the same for me. Don't trust car shipping companies. Always seems be be issues.
