West Yorkshire, UK: A Sought-After Destination for Vehicle Transport


Situated in northern England, West Yorkshire is a popular destination for individuals relocating cars to and from the area. With major cities like Leeds and Bradford, as well as smaller towns and villages, West Yorkshire attracts people for various reasons, such as employment, education, and lifestyle changes. Consequently, the demand for dependable and cost-effective west yorkshire car transport services has surged significantly over the years.


Varieties of Vehicle 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 economical 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 vehicle at a time, making them more expensive. Multi-car transporters can move several vehicles simultaneously, keeping car transportation costs low and proving useful if your car is not running, roadworthy, or legal. When transporting a luxury or classic car, you may prefer a covered or enclosed service. This option is the safest, as it protects the car from the elements and keeps it out of sight. Transporting classic cars can be more costly, as these trailers typically only carry one or two vehicles at a time.


When shipping a vehicle overseas, specialized car shipping companies with relationships with large freight liners can transport your car by sea. They can provide guidance on the necessary procedures and shipping documentation, often assisting you in completing them. The most secure but costliest car shipping option is via a 20ft or 40ft shipping container, although some systems can reduce costs by fitting up to 5 cars in one container. A more affordable alternative 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 moved by a third party.


Ready Your Vehicle for Transport


After accepting a quote for your car delivery and agreeing on 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 come loose during transit.


Running condition: Note the vehicle's performance before transport. This will enable you to detect any changes once the move is completed. Ensure fluid and fuel levels are sufficient if the vehicle will be driven during delivery.


Cleaning: Cleaning your vehicle helps prevent damage caused by dirt rubbing against the paintwork and makes it easier to spot any scratches or scrapes that may occur during 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, and your selected transport company will be available to assist you with any questions or concerns.


Inspect Car Condition & Provide Feedback


Once your vehicle reaches its destination, you should check:


Vital signs: Verify that 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, ensure everything is as described.


Mileage: Has the car 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. Once your car delivery is complete, remember to provide feedback on your chosen company's profile page. This helps future users of the site make informed decisions when arranging their car transport.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes.

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.
