Comprehending Car Transport Costs per Mile


The cost of car transport per mile can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of vehicle being transported, the mode of transport chosen, & the distance covered. On Shiply, the average charge per mile for transport distances exceeding 50 miles is approximately £0.95/mile. However, for shorter car delivery requirements under 50 miles, the average prices tend to be closer to £2/mile.


Discovering Different Types of Car Transport Services


When it comes to relocating cars, there are two primary methods: transporting the vehicle on a trailer or having it driven by a professional trade plate driver. Opting for a professional driver is often the most cost-effective option; however, it does involve adding mileage to your car & requires a valid MOT. It's important to note that the car does not need to be taxed or registered, as the driver can use a special 'trade plate' that is displayed over the vehicle's existing plates during the journey.


If you prefer to have your car transported on a trailer, there are several options available. Single car transporters are designed to carry one vehicle at a time, which can be more expensive. On the other hand, multi-car transporters can accommodate several vehicles simultaneously, helping to keep car transportation costs down. This option is particularly useful if your car is not running, roadworthy, or legal.


For those relocating a luxury or classic car, a covered or enclosed transport service may be the preferred choice. This service offers the highest level of protection, shielding your vehicle from the elements & keeping it out of sight during transit. However, transporting classic cars can be more costly, as these trailers typically only carry one or two vehicles at a time.


If you need to relocate 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 & shipping documentation, & often will assist you in completing them. The most secure but costly option for international car shipping is via a 20ft or 40ft shipping container, although some systems can optimize costs by fitting up to 5 cars in a single container. A more affordable 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, it's crucial to verify that the transporter's insurance coverage is sufficient for your vehicle's value. Additionally, review your personal car insurance policy to ensure that your vehicle is protected while being transported by a third party.


Readying Your Car for Transport & Checking Its Condition Upon Arrival


Once you have accepted a quote for your car delivery & confirmed the dates, it's essential to prepare your vehicle for transport. Gather all necessary documents, especially if you are distance-selling. Remove any accessories & valuables from the car, as these items are unlikely to be insured. Secure or remove anything that could come loose during transit.


Make note of your vehicle's performance prior to transport, as this will help you identify any changes once the move is completed. Ensure that fluid & fuel levels are sufficient if the vehicle will be driven during the delivery process. Thoroughly cleaning your car will help prevent damage caused by dirt rubbing against the paintwork, & it will make it easier for you to spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during transport. Taking photographs of your vehicle before it is transported is an excellent way to provide evidence of its condition.


Upon your vehicle's arrival at its destination, take the time to check its condition. Verify that all vital functions, such as lights, engine, brakes, & any unique features, are working as they did before transport. If you purchased your vehicle online or from a car dealership, ensure that everything is as described. Check the mileage to confirm that the car has traveled the expected distance, & if not, address this with the transporter. Compare the vehicle's paintwork against the photos taken before transportation to identify any potential damage.


Shiply is built on a foundation of 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. Your input helps future users of the site make informed decisions when arranging their own car transport needs.


By choosing Shiply for your Northumberland car transport requirements, you can enjoy a seamless, affordable, & reliable vehicle shipping experience. Our extensive network of professional transporters & user-friendly platform ensures that your car will be delivered safely & efficiently, allowing you to focus on your new adventures in this stunning region of the UK.

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.
