Auto Parts Delivery
The internet has opened up the possibilities of car fixing and customization by allowing the buying and selling of car parts all over the world, but whilst you may find the car part of your dreams or be close to finally selling your spare parts, getting them delivered can still be a challenge. How to ship an engine can often be the unanswered question that means your garage is still as cluttered as ever.
There are hundreds of auto part delivery services on Shiply whose quotes are often up to 75% less than usual rates.
How Much Does Auto Parts Delivery Cost?
Often the first question one has about shipping car parts is, for example, well what does engine shipping cost? Whilst an accurate quote for your auto parts delivery job is hard to give due to a number of factors that may affect it, on average you will be looking at paying roughly $1.36 per mile for journeys less than 100 miles and $0.26 per mile for journeys less than 1,000 miles.
Obviously then distance will affect the price of your auto parts delivery quotes, but you should also consider these factors:
Item Size - How large the car parts are will also affect the price as this will determine how much space they need in a vehicle. The larger or heavier the items are that need to be shipped, the more it is likely to cost. For example, shipping wheels and tires is going to cost more than shipping a spare wing mirror.
Timings - If you need your car parts delivered by a certain time then this is likely to cost extra as it means a rush job may need to take place with a vehicle set aside just for your delivery, whereas flexibility with timings allows for more options.
Locations Of Pickup And Delivery - If the item is located in a remote location as opposed to in an urban area then the extra fuel costs to drive to the item for pickup may be passed on to you.
Time Of Year - Unfortunately adverse weather conditions can increase the price of your auto parts delivery quote as well. If certain routes are too unsafe to travel then this may require your car parts to have to take a longer route.

For this reason, quotes on Shiply are up to 75% cheaper than usual, and what’s more, this is also great for reducing unnecessary CO2 emissions as it ensures that fewer half-empty vehicles are on the road making the same journeys.
Preparing For Your Parts To Be Shipped
If you have decided on a company to carry out your auto parts delivery then the next thing to do is to prepare the parts for pick up:
Documents - If there are any documents required for the delivery such as proof of ownership or customs documents to travel overseas then these should be taken care of as a priority as the delivery cannot go ahead without them.
Cleaning And Photographing - Cleaning the car parts can help to give a better idea of their condition prior to delivery. This means that you are able to easily spot any damages that may occur in transit. High quality time-stamped photographs also give you evidence of this and make comparisons easy.
Running Condition - You want to check that all parts are operating as expected prior to delivery, just to ascertain the item’s working condition beforehand. You also want to drain any fluids that are not supposed to be there in transit.
Packing - You want to make sure that your car parts are as safe as possible and should wrap them securely in protective material to protect them from damage during transit. For example, when shipping wheels and tires you should try and wrap them to avoid any unwanted scratching or wear and tear. Discussing your packing options with your chosen transport provider is always a good idea.
What To Do After Delivery
Once the car parts have been delivered the most important thing to do is to check their condition. They should be operating as expected and their exterior condition should match the photographs taken prior to pickup. Any issues should be raised with the auto parts delivery service immediately.
Finally, we ask that you leave a rating and some feedback for your shipping company. This not only helps them improve their service in the future but also allows future Shiply users to browse their options with confidence and trust.
