Varieties of Car Transport Services


When it comes to relocating automobiles, there are two primary methods: transporting on a trailer or having a professional trade plate driver operate the vehicle. Having your car driven is often the most cost-effective option; however, it adds mileage to your vehicle & requires a valid MOT. The car does not need tax or registration, as a 'trade plate driver' can display a special registration plate over the existing plates while driving.


Trailered car transporting offers several options, including single car transporters, which carry one vehicle at a time, & multi-car transporters that can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping costs down. The latter is particularly useful for cars that are not running, roadworthy, or legal. If you're moving a luxury or classic car, a covered or enclosed service provides the safest option, protecting the vehicle from the elements & keeping it out of sight. However, this service tends to be more expensive, as these trailers usually carry only one or two cars at a time.


For overseas vehicle transportation, specialised car shipping companies have relationships with large freight liners to transport your car by sea. They can advise you on the necessary procedures & shipping documentation & often assist in completing them. The most secure but costly 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 'roll-on / roll-off' ('RORO'), where your vehicle is driven directly onto the vessel & secured.


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


Ready Your Vehicle for Shipment


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


  • Paperwork: Ensure you have all the necessary documentation, especially if you are distance-selling.

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

  • Operational state: Note the vehicle's performance before transport to easily identify any changes after the move. Ensure fluid & fuel levels are sufficient if the vehicle will be driven during delivery.

  • Cleansing: Clean your vehicle to prevent damage caused by dirt rubbing against the paintwork & to more easily spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during transportation.

  • Documentation: Take photographs before your vehicle is transported to prove any damage incurred during transit.

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


Inspect Vehicle Condition & Provide Feedback


Upon your automobile's arrival at its destination, check the following:


  • Essential functions: Ensure all crucial features are as you left them, including lights, engine, brakes, & any special attributes unique to your vehicle. If you purchased your vehicle online or from a car dealership, verify that everything is as described.

  • Odometer: Confirm that the car has travelled the expected distance. If not, address this with the transporter.

  • Exterior: Inspect for damage against the photos taken before transportation.

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

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

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.
