Moving your car without driving it yourself isn’t something you do every day, but there are thousands of car delivery companies dedicated to doing just that.

Before you arrange any services to move your vehicle it’s important to establish a couple of details about your vehicle:

Basic details: Ensure you have the major details of your vehicle including make, model, year and registration numbers as well as the accompanying paperwork.

Running/faults: Depending on if your car is running or not, you will need to ensure that it’s in good working order for the journey. Even if your vehicle will be hitching a ride on a trailer it still needs to be loaded and unloaded. Also, any mechanical faults need to be taken note of so that when your car reaches its destination you can check that it’s still in the same working order.

Clean your car: Making sure your car is clean is not just so that it looks nice when it reaches its new home, it also lets you notice any scratches or paintwork damage (which you should take note of).

Condition: Thoroughly inspect your auto for any nicks, scrapes, dents or notable damage (inside and out). Leaks are particularly important to repair or notify transporters about, especially if your car is going on a multi-car trailer.

Photos: Take photos detailing the condition of your car from all angles that you can use as evidence should you have any disputes after your car is moved.

MoT: If your car is going to be driven on the road it will need a valid MoT, make sure it’s registered until reach its destination at the very least.

Last Minute Checks: Finally, before handing over your car to the transporter, make sure you conduct these last minute tasks:

Clear out: Remove any personal or loose items from your car before the move as these are unlikely to be insured during its transportation.

Checks: Make sure the car is secure (things such as fold-down roofs) , ensure that fluid levels are topped up, tyres are inflated to the correct pressure and check your car mileage (if your car is being driven this will change of course, but even if it’s travelling via trailer it still may increase slightly).
