Car Transport Costs per Mile


The cost per mile for car transport varies depending on factors such as the type of vehicle being moved, the mode of transport, & the distance covered. On Shiply, for transport distances exceeding 50 miles, the average charge per mile is approximately £0.95. For shorter car delivery requirements under 50 miles, average prices are closer to £2 per mile.


Types of Car Transport Services Available


When it comes to moving cars, 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 & requires a valid MOT. However, the car does not need to be taxed or registered, as a professional trade plate driver can operate it using a special registration plate displayed over the vehicle's existing plates.


If you opt for trailered car transporting, there are several options to consider. Single car transporters carry one vehicle at a time, making them more expensive. Multi-car transporters, on the other hand, can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping transportation 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. This is the safest option, as it protects the vehicle from the elements & keeps it out of sight. However, classic car transportation can be more costly, as these trailers typically only carry one or two cars at a time.


For overseas vehicle transportation, specialized car shipping companies can help. These firms have established relationships with large freight liners & can advise you on the necessary procedures & shipping documentation, often assisting with their completion. The most secure but expensive option is shipping your car in a 20ft or 40ft 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 vehicle is covered while being transported by a third party.


Preparing Your Car for Transport


Once you've accepted a quote for your car delivery & agreed upon the dates, it's essential to prepare your vehicle for transport:


  • Documents: Ensure you have all the necessary paperwork readily available, especially if you are distance-selling.

  • Clearing: Remove accessories & valuables from the vehicle, as they are unlikely to be insured. Secure or remove any items that could come loose during transit.

  • Running condition: Make notes of the vehicle's performance before transport to easily identify any changes upon completion of the move. If the vehicle will be driven during delivery, ensure fluid & fuel levels are adequate.

  • Cleaning: Clean your vehicle to help prevent damage caused by dirt rubbing against the paintwork. This will also make it easier to spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during transportation.

  • Evidence: Take photographs of your vehicle before transport to prove any damage that may have occurred during the process.

Many Shiply firms have extensive experience & have transported thousands of cars. Your chosen transport company will be available to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.


Checking Car Condition & Leaving Feedback


Upon your vehicle's arrival at its destination, be sure to check the following:


  • Vital signs: Verify that all essential functions are as you left them, including lights, engine, brakes, & any special features unique to your vehicle. If you purchased your vehicle online or from a car dealership, ensure everything is as described.

  • Mileage: Check if the car has traveled the expected distance. If not, address this with the transporter.

  • Paint: Inspect for any damage by comparing the vehicle's current condition 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 of the site make informed decisions when arranging their own car transport.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes.

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.
