Simplifying the Process of Acquiring Car Transport Estimates

When it comes to relocating a vehicle, there are various reasons why individuals might require assistance. Whether you own a car dealership, have acquired a vehicle from eBay, stumbled upon a barn find, or desire to participate in a track day, Shiply can assist you in finding the ideal transporter for the task. With thousands of registered transport companies specializing in different areas, Shiply provides a wide array of choices to cater to your unique requirements and budget.

Our extensive network of vehicle transport companies delivers cars all around the globe, ensuring that whether you need a car delivered within the UK, Europe, or beyond, we can find a suitable solution tailored to your specifications.

To begin, simply complete one straightforward car delivery quote request form, and within minutes, you'll receive prices from multiple transportation firms via email. By utilizing Shiply, you can access prices that are significantly lower than going directly to car transportation companies, who often quote the full industry rate. On our platform, vehicle transport firms engage in a reverse auction, competing to offer the best price and driving down costs by up to 75% off standard rates, guaranteeing that you get the most competitive deal available.

When browsing delivery quotes on Shiply, you'll find the transport provider's feedback profile next to each quote, displaying customer ratings and reviews. This feature allows you to assess the quality of service provided by the company, giving you peace of mind when making your decision. While car transport costs per mile can vary based on factors such as the type of vehicle, mode of transport, and distance, on Shiply, you can expect an average charge of £0.95/mile for transports exceeding 50 miles. For shorter car delivery requirements under 50 miles, the average prices tend to be closer to £2/mile.

Investigating Various Types of Car Transport Services

When it comes to relocating vehicles, there are two primary methods: transporting the vehicle on a trailer or having it driven by a professional trade plate driver. While having your car driven is often the most cost-effective option, it does add mileage to your vehicle and requires a valid MOT. However, the car does not need to be taxed or registered, as it can be driven by a 'trade plate driver' who displays a special registration plate over the vehicle's 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. On the other hand, multi-car transporters can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping transportation costs down and 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, which offers the highest level of protection from the elements and keeps the vehicle out of sight. However, this option tends to be more costly, as these trailers typically only carry one or two cars at a time.

For those relocating a vehicle overseas, specialized car shipping companies can assist you. These firms have established relationships with large freight liners, enabling them to transport your car by sea. They can provide guidance on the necessary procedures and shipping documentation, and often help you complete them. The most secure, albeit most expensive, car shipping option is via a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. Some systems can reduce costs by fitting up to five cars in one container. A cheaper alternative is 'roll-on / roll-off' ('RORO'), where your vehicle is driven directly onto the vessel and secured.

Regardless of the transportation method you choose, we recommend verifying that the transporter's insurance level adequately covers your vehicle's value. Additionally, it's wise to review your personal car insurance policy to ensure that your car is insured while being moved by a third party.

Readying Your Vehicle for Transport & Inspecting Its Condition Upon Arrival

Once you've accepted a quote for your car delivery and agreed upon the dates, it's essential to prepare your vehicle for transport. This includes gathering all necessary documents, removing accessories and valuables, securing loose items, noting the vehicle's performance prior to transport, ensuring adequate fluid and fuel levels, cleaning the car to easily identify any potential damage, and taking photographs as evidence of its condition before transportation.

Upon your vehicle's arrival at its destination, be sure to check its vital signs, mileage, and paintwork for any changes or damage that may have occurred during transit. If you purchased your vehicle online or from a car dealership, verify that everything is as described.

Remember, 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, as this helps future users make informed decisions when arranging their own car transport.

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.
