South Yorkshire is a well-liked location for people moving vehicles to and from the area. With its rich industrial heritage, thriving cities like Sheffield and Doncaster, and easy access to major motorways, South Yorkshire is a hub for vehicle transport. Many individuals relocate to the region for work or family reasons, and often need to bring their vehicles with them. Others may be selling or purchasing cars from the area, requiring reliable vehicle transport services.


Varieties of Vehicle Transport Services



There are two primary methods for transporting vehicles: transported on a trailer or driven by a professional trade plate driver. Having your car driven is often the most economical method; however, it adds mileage to your vehicle and requires a valid MOT. The car doesn't need tax or registration as it can be driven by a 'trade plate driver' who displays a special registration plate over the vehicle's existing plates while being driven by a professional.



When it comes to trailered vehicle transporting, there are several options. Single car transporters carry one vehicle at a time, so they tend to be more expensive. Multi-car transporters can move several vehicles simultaneously, which keeps vehicle transportation costs down & is useful if your car is not running, roadworthy, or legal. If moving a luxury or classic car, you may prefer a covered or enclosed service. This service is the safest as the vehicle is protected from the elements and kept out of sight. Transporting classic cars can cost more as these trailers tend to only carry one or two vehicles at once.


Readying Your Vehicle for Transport



Once you've accepted a quote for your vehicle delivery and agreed on dates, we recommend preparing your car for transport:


  • Documents: Ensure you have all your paperwork handy, especially if you are distance-selling.

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

  • Running condition: Make notes of the vehicle's performance prior to transport. This will allow you to spot any changes when the move is completed. Ensure fluid and fuel levels are adequate if the vehicle will be driven during delivery.

  • Cleaning: Cleaning your vehicle will help avoid damage caused by dirt rubbing the paintwork & it will allow you to more easily notice any scratches or scrapes that occur during vehicle delivery.

  • Evidence: Taking photographs before your vehicle is transported is a great way to prove any damage was incurred during transport.


Many companies on Shiply have vast experience and have transported thousands of vehicles, & your chosen transport business will be on hand to help you with any queries or concerns.


Inspect Vehicle Condition & Provide Feedback



Once your vehicle has reached its destination, you should check:


  • Vital signs: Check that all important functions are as you left them: Lights, engine, brakes, and any special functions unique to your vehicle. If you bought your vehicle online or from a car dealership, check that everything is as described.

  • Mileage: Has the car travelled the expected distance? If not, raise this with the transporter.

  • Paint: Check for damage against photos taken before transportation.


Shiply is built on trust with company profile pages available to browse when choosing a vehicle transporter. When your vehicle delivery is complete, remember to leave feedback on your chosen company's profile page. This helps future users of the site make the best decision when arranging their vehicle transport in South Yorkshire.

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes.

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.
