Car transport costs per mile fluctuate based on factors such as the type of vehicle, mode of transport, & distance. On Shiply, the average charge per mile is £0.95 for transports exceeding 50 miles. For shorter car delivery requirements under 50 miles, the average price is closer to £2 per mile.

Investigating Various Types of Car Transport Services

When it comes to relocating cars, there are two primary methods: transporting on a trailer or having a professional trade plate driver operate the vehicle. Choosing a professional driver is often the most cost-effective option; however, it does increase the mileage on your car & requires a valid MOT. The vehicle doesn't need to be taxed or registered, as the driver uses a special 'trade plate' that is displayed over the existing plates during transport.

If you opt for trailered car transporting, there are several options available. Single car transporters carry one vehicle at a time, making them more expensive. Multi-car transporters, on the other hand, can move multiple vehicles simultaneously, keeping costs down & proving useful for cars that are not running, roadworthy, or legal. When transporting a luxury or classic car, you may prefer a covered or enclosed service for added protection & privacy. Keep in mind that this option tends to be more costly, as these trailers usually carry only one or two cars at a time.

For overseas vehicle transportation, specialized car shipping companies have established relationships with large freight liners to transport your car by sea. They can guide you through the necessary procedures & shipping documentation, often assisting with the completion of required forms. The most secure but expensive option is using a 20ft or 40ft shipping container, although some systems can reduce costs by fitting up to five cars in one container. A cheaper alternative is the 'roll-on / roll-off' (RORO) method, where your vehicle is driven directly onto the vessel & secured.

Regardless of the transportation method you choose, we recommend verifying that the transporter's insurance coverage is sufficient for your vehicle's value. Additionally, review your personal car insurance policy to ensure your car is protected while being moved by a third party.

Readying Your Car for Transport & Inspecting Its Condition Upon Arrival

Once you've accepted a quote for your car delivery & agreed upon the dates, it's crucial to ready your vehicle for transport. Gather all necessary documents, especially if you're distance-selling. Remove accessories & valuables from the car, as they may not be insured, & secure any loose items. Make notes of the vehicle's performance before transport to easily identify any changes upon delivery. Ensure fluid & fuel levels are adequate if the vehicle will be driven during transport. Thoroughly clean your car to prevent dirt from damaging the paintwork & to make it easier to spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during delivery. Taking photographs before transport is an excellent way to prove any damage incurred during the process.

When your vehicle reaches its destination, check that all vital functions, such as lights, engine, brakes, & any unique features, are working as expected. If you purchased the vehicle online or from a dealership, verify that everything is as described. Compare the mileage to ensure the car has traveled the expected distance, & if not, address this with the transporter. Lastly, inspect the paintwork for any damage, comparing it to the photos taken before transportation.

Shiply is built on trust, with company profile pages available for you to browse when selecting a car transporter. Once your car delivery is complete, don't forget to leave feedback on your chosen company's profile page. This helps future users make informed decisions when arranging their own car transport.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

Does Someone Have To Be Present For Pickup And Delivery?

In most cases, the car delivery company will require you to be in attendance for the pickup and delivery of the vehicle. This is because there are likely to be release forms that you need to sign, as well as handing over the keys for the car.

Can I Keep Items In My Vehicle?

Most car delivery companies will be fine with you keeping some personal items in the vehicle when it is transported. However, there are two important things to remember: 1. The weight of the items may affect the price of the vehicle delivery, and 2. Any items in the vehicle will not be covered by insurance for the transport of the car itself.

Can I Transport My Vehicle If It Isn't Running?

You can transport your vehicle if it isn’t in running condition, however, this will be more expensive as specialist equipment is required to load and unload the vehicle.
