Getting Auto Transport Quotes is Easy on Shiply

Vehicle shipping is something every driver will have to deal with at some point. Although driving along the 7,821 km Trans-Canada Highway may seem tempting, there are other ways to move a vehicle. There are a variety of different types and sizes of car carriers in Canada, comparing these by trawling through their websites and phoning them up individually could take hours. Listing your vehicle on Shiply will let them come to you.

Get quotes in a few clicks

Simply click the ‘get quotes’ button at the top of this page to get started. You will need to enter your vehicle type, as well as your origin and destination details. It is also advisable to enter dates for your move. Uploading a photo can increase the number of quotes you receive, getting you a better deal!

Weighing up your options

After about 24 hours you should have received a good bunch of quotes. Most companies will include a message detailing their services but you should ask each company about their car transport method, insurance coverage and delivery time.

4 Main transport methods are available:

- Flatbed: These are often used by rescue or auto towing companies for shorter distance moves, generally within one province. These will only hold one car but can get your move done very quickly.

- Auto Carrier: This is the most common auto transport method in Canada. These can carry anywhere up to 10 cars, which leads to cheaper prices.

- Enclosed Transport: Getting enclosed transport quotes is great if you are looking to move a more valuable vehicle such as a vintage or sports car.

- Rail Transport: This is a great option if you are looking for a good price and aren’t looking for very quick delivery.

Rail transport and larger multi-car carriers can only transport from terminal to terminal, however, they may also offer additional services to your door, for a small fee.

It is also important to view the Shiply profiles for each company. This contains information about their company size, insurance coverage, photos, and, most importantly, their feedback from our other customers. This is a great way to gauge the carriers experience and quality of service.

Getting great prices

The delivery method is typically the biggest factor in pricing. Rail can be cheaper, while single auto transport methods such as flatbed and enclosed transport can be more expensive. However, the cheapest quotes almost always come from backhaul. This is when a carrier needs a few more cars to fill up spaces on the truck. They will offer quotes much cheaper than the market rate to fill these spots, these are based entirely on availability these prices are not always available. Many companies use Shiply to find these extra loads, meaning you can snag a great rate.

Accepting a quote

Once you have decided which auto shipping company suits your needs, it is time to accept a quote. This will automatically exchange your contact details with the company you have chosen. It is important to ensure you ask for their insurance information and any invoices you need at this point. They will also send over their own booking forms for you to fill out.

Completing the move

Delivery time can vary with distance, taking up to 3 days for shorter moves (eg shipping from Toronto to Montreal) and 10 days for longer moves (eg shipping from Vancouver to Toronto). Once your car arrives it is important to check it for any damage prior to signing it off.

If you are happy with the service, please do not forget to review your company on Shiply. Your feedback will help other customers in deciding which car shipping company they want to use.

"Communication was great from the time I accepted the quote until the car was dropped off. In terms of the timeline, I was given a potential range for both how soon the car would be picked up and how many days it would be in transport."
