Shiply offers more affordable prices compared to directly contacting car transportation companies that charge the full industry rate. On Shiply, vehicle transport firms engage in a reverse auction, driving down the price by up to 75% off standard rates, ensuring you receive the most competitive price. Many transport firms have successfully completed thousands of deliveries, and nearly every delivery quote on Shiply includes the transport provider's feedback profile, where you can view customer ratings and comments to gauge the quality of service. Car transport costs per mile vary depending on the type of vehicle being transported, the mode of transport, and the distance covered. On Shiply, for transports exceeding 50 miles, you can anticipate an average charge of £0.95 per mile. For shorter car delivery requirements under 50 miles, the average prices will be closer to £2 per mile.


Varieties of Car Transport Services


Two primary methods exist for transporting cars: via trailer or driven by a professional trade plate driver. Having your vehicle driven often proves to be the most cost-effective option; however, it adds mileage to your car and necessitates a valid MOT. The car does not require tax or registration as a 'trade plate driver' can operate it, displaying a special registration plate over the vehicle's existing plates while being driven by a professional. Trailered car transporting offers several choices. Single car transporters carry one car at a time, making them more expensive. Multi-car transporters can transport multiple vehicles simultaneously, keeping car transportation costs down and proving useful if your car is not running, roadworthy, or legal.


When relocating a luxury or classic car, you may prefer a covered or enclosed service. This service provides the highest level of safety, protecting the car from the elements and keeping it out of sight. Transporting classic cars 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 maintain relationships with large freight liners to transport your car by sea. They can provide guidance on the necessary procedures and shipping documentation and often assist in completing them. The most secure but expensive car shipping option is via a 20ft or 40ft shipping container, although some systems can reduce costs by accommodating up to 5 cars in one container. Another more affordable option is 'roll-on / roll-off' ('RORO'), where your vehicle is driven directly onto the vessel and secured. Regardless of the transportation method, we recommend verifying that the transporter's insurance level adequately covers the vehicle's value. Additionally, review your personal car insurance policy to ensure your car is insured while being transported by a third party.


Shoreham-by-Sea Vehicle Transport


Shoreham-by-Sea, a beloved coastal town situated in West Sussex, UK, attracts many individuals who frequently transport cars to and from the area for various purposes. Some may be relocating to Shoreham-by-Sea and require their vehicle to be transported, while others may be buying or selling a car from someone in the town. Furthermore, classic car enthusiasts may transport their prized possessions to Shoreham-by-Sea for exhibitions or events. Regardless of the reason, Shiply can assist in connecting you with dependable car transport companies in Shoreham-by-Sea, ensuring your vehicle arrives safely and efficiently.


Ready Your Vehicle for Transport


Once you have accepted a quote for your car delivery and confirmed your dates, we recommend preparing your car for transport:


Documentation: Ensure you have all necessary paperwork readily available, especially if you are distance-selling.
Clearing: Remove accessories and valuables from the vehicle as they are unlikely to be insured. Secure or remove any items that could become loose during transit.
Running condition: Make notes of the vehicle's performance before transport. This will enable you to identify any changes once the move is completed. Ensure fluid and fuel levels are sufficient if the vehicle will be driven during the delivery.
Cleaning: Cleaning your vehicle will help prevent damage caused by dirt rubbing against the paintwork and allow you to more easily spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during the vehicle delivery.
Evidence: Taking photographs before your vehicle is transported is an excellent way to prove any damage incurred during transport.


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


Verify Vehicle Condition & Provide Feedback


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


Vital signs: Ensure all essential functions are as you left them: lights, engine, brakes, and any special features unique to your vehicle. If you purchased your vehicle online or from a car dealership, verify that everything is as described.
Mileage: Confirm that the car has traveled the expected distance. If not, address this with the transporter.
Paint: Check for damage against photos taken before transportation.


Shiply is built on trust, with company profile pages available for browsing when selecting a car transporter. Upon completion of your car delivery, remember to leave feedback on your chosen company's profile page. This assists future users of the site in making the best decision when arranging their car transport.

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

Whoever you choose! There are thousands of rated transport providers on our platform ready to make a bid to carry out your delivery. It is up to you to decide which quote to accept.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. 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.
