The cost per mile for car transport can fluctuate depending on factors such as the type of vehicle being moved, the mode of transport, and the distance covered. For Wolverhampton car transport requirements exceeding 50 miles, you can anticipate an average charge of £0.95 per mile on Shiply. For shorter distances under 50 miles, the average price is closer to £2 per mile.


Types of Car Transport Services in Wolverhampton


When it comes to transferring cars in Wolverhampton, 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 the driver can use a special 'trade plate' that is displayed over the vehicle's existing plates during transport.


If you choose trailered car transport in Wolverhampton, you have several options to consider. Single car transporters, which carry one vehicle at a time, tend to be more expensive. Conversely, multi-car transporters can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping costs down and providing a convenient solution for cars that are not running, roadworthy, or legal.


For those transporting luxury or classic cars in Wolverhampton, a covered or enclosed service may be preferable. This is the safest option, as it shields the vehicle from the elements and keeps it out of sight. However, classic car transportation can be more costly, as these trailers typically only carry one or two vehicles at a time.


Overseas Car Shipping from Wolverhampton


If you need to transfer a vehicle overseas from Wolverhampton, specialized car shipping companies on Shiply 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, and often help you complete them.


The most secure, but also most expensive, option for overseas car shipping from Wolverhampton is via a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. Some systems can optimize costs by fitting up to 5 cars in a single container. A cheaper alternative is the 'roll-on / roll-off' (RORO) method, where your vehicle is driven directly onto the vessel and secured.


Regardless of the method chosen for your Wolverhampton car transport, 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 in Wolverhampton


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


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


2. Clearing: Remove any accessories & valuables from the vehicle, as they may not be covered by insurance. Secure or remove loose items that could shift during transit.


3. Running condition: Make notes of your vehicle's performance before transport to easily identify any changes upon delivery. If the car will be driven during transport, ensure fluid and fuel levels are sufficient.


4. Cleaning: Clean your vehicle to prevent dirt from rubbing against the paintwork and causing damage. A clean car also makes it easier to spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during delivery.


5. Evidence: Take photographs of your vehicle before transport to prove any damage that may occur during the process.


The experienced car transport companies on Shiply have handled thousands of vehicle moves and are available to address any questions or concerns you may have.


Post-Transport Checklist & Feedback


Upon arrival at its destination, inspect your vehicle for the following:


1. Vital signs: Verify that all essential functions, such as lights, engine, brakes, and any unique features, are in the same condition as before transport. If you purchased the vehicle online or from a dealership, ensure everything is as described.


2. Mileage: Check if the car has traveled the expected distance. If there are discrepancies, address them with the transporter.


3. Paint: Compare the vehicle's condition against the photos taken before transportation to check for any damage.


Shiply is built on trust, and company profile pages are available for you to browse when selecting a car transporter in Wolverhampton. Once your car delivery is completed, don't forget to leave feedback on your chosen company's profile page.

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 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.
