Vehicle Transport Cost per Mile

The cost of car shipping per mile varies depending on factors such as the type of vehicle, mode of transport, & distance covered. On average, you can expect to pay around £0.95/mile for transport distances exceeding 50 miles. For shorter journeys under 50 miles, prices may be closer to £2/mile. Rest assured, Shiply's competitive bidding process ensures you receive the most cost-effective solution for your Brighton vehicle transport needs.

Types of Car Shipping Services

Shiply offers two primary methods for relocating cars: trailer transport & professional trade plate drivers. Having your vehicle driven by a professional is often the most economical option, but it does add mileage to your car & requires a valid MOT. Alternatively, trailer transport provides several options to suit your preferences & budget.

Single car transporters are ideal for individual vehicles but may be more expensive. Multi-car transporters, on the other hand, can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping costs down & accommodating non-running or unroadworthy cars. For luxury or classic automobiles, consider opting for a covered or enclosed service to ensure maximum protection during transit.

If you need to relocate a vehicle overseas, Shiply collaborates with car shipping companies specializing in international transport. These experts can guide you through the necessary procedures & shipping documentation, often assisting with the completion of required forms. Choose between secure shipping containers or cost-effective roll-on/roll-off (RORO) options for your peace of mind.

Preparing Your Vehicle for Transport

To ensure a smooth & hassle-free car shipping experience, it's essential to prepare your vehicle adequately. Gather all necessary documents, especially if you're involved in distance-selling. Remove any accessories or valuables from the car, as they may not be covered by insurance. Secure or remove loose items to prevent damage during transit.

Make note of your vehicle's performance before transport to easily identify any changes upon delivery. Ensure fluid & fuel levels are sufficient if the car will be driven during the move. Thoroughly clean your vehicle to minimize the risk of dirt-related damage & make it easier to spot any potential scratches or scrapes incurred during transport. Taking photographs of your car before handing it over to the transporter is a smart way to document its condition.

Checking Vehicle Condition & Leaving Feedback

Upon receiving your vehicle at its destination, take a moment to inspect its condition. Check vital functions such as lights, engine, brakes, & any unique features specific to your car. Verify that the mileage is as expected & examine the paintwork for any damage, comparing it against the photos taken before transportation.

Shiply values transparency & trust, which is why we encourage users to leave feedback on their chosen company's profile page once the car delivery is complete. Your honest review helps future customers make informed decisions when arranging their own vehicle transport in Brighton or elsewhere.

Choose Shiply for your Brighton car shipping needs & experience the convenience, reliability, & affordability we offer. Our dedicated transporters are ready to assist you every step of the way, ensuring your vehicle reaches its destination safely & efficiently. Get started today & discover why countless satisfied customers trust Shiply for all their vehicle transportation requirements.

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

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?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

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.
