Vehicle Shipping Tips
Auto transport on Shiply is a simple process. You submit details of your move on the site and transport companies come back to you with quotes. You can then view other customer reviews of each company to decide which suits you the most, then, accept their quote.
Step 1. Upload your vehicle make and model, origin and destination postal codes, and delivery dates (if needed). This will create a car transport page for trucking companies to view.
Step 2. You should start to receive quotes pretty quickly. Once you’ve received a few, it's time to weigh up the options and decide which company you would like to ship with. There are a variety of factors which will influence your decision.
Depending on your vehicle, delivery distance, the urgency of the move and budget, you may favor one delivery type over another. Single car hauling, car carriers, rail and enclosed transport are the main options. Researching these thoroughly will allow you to decide which suits your vehicle delivery best.
Some quotes may be terminal to terminal, which means you must drop the vehicle off and collect it from a secure company yard. Some companies do offer door to door service, which may incur a small fee.
Different companies will have different insurance value and coverage types. On Shiply, it is easy to obtain this information from each company. Once you accept a quote, they will provide you will the documentation necessary to verify this. If you are shipping an expensive or new car, you may want more extensive insurance coverage than if transporting an older vehicle.
This is mainly based on the distance you are moving the vehicle. If the move is across Canada (eg. Halifax to Calgary), the delivery time could be 10 – 14 days. However, a shorter move such as Toronto to Winnipeg could take around 6 days. This is also dependent on the transport type and availability of the company you select.
Each auto transport company on Shiply has a profile page with insurance information, company information, and customer reviews, these will show the level of service the company provides.
Step 3. Once you have decided your requirements and asked all the questions needed, it is time to accept an auto shipping quote. Once you have accepted this, you will receive the contact information of the company to arrange the destination location and date. They will also send over the booking form and insurance details for you to read and sign.
Step 4. Completing the move. Once the vehicle arrives at its destination, inspect it for any damage. Ensure it is in the same state as when you left it. Once you are happy, sign off the vehicle.
Don’t forget to leave feedback for the vehicle shipping company you chose. This will help others in your position to make their decision on Shiply.
