Transporting a Car

When it comes to moving, a lot of the focus will be on relocating all the belongings in your home. But, what about your vehicle?

Some people, prefer to drive themselves to their new home, turning the long trip into a family vacation. Whilst others, would rather not travel to save money. Or alternatively, you are a car collector, and transporting your beloved vehicle would be your main priority.

Fortunately, transporting a vehicle is a lot easier than you might think. With a few easy steps everything can be done in only a few days’ time. To help you along, we have some basic tips to share with you before you start contacting companies in assistance with the transporting of your vehicle.

Step 1 – Make sure that you have all necessary details of the vehicle you wish to transport, as the agent will be asking you questions such as:

  • What is the year and model of the vehicle?
  • What is the collection and delivery address for the vehicle you want to transport?
  • Is the vehicle in a good working condition?

Step 2 – Similar to the pursuit of finding a removal company, it’s important that you do some thorough research on the vehicle transportation companies you want to take into consideration. Compile a list of companies that draws your attention to potentially using them to assist you.

Step 3 – Contact the companies which you have listed, and provide them with all the necessary details and specifications of your car. We would advise you to contact roughly 3-5 companies, so that you can revise and compare all of them. In making your decision, focus on things like the reliability, affordability and effectiveness of the company.

Step 4 – Once you have come to a conclusion and made your decision, contact the company of your choice. The agent will explain the booking process to you and guide you through all the steps.

Note that the variation in prices is based on the fact that some companies use a truck to transport your vehicle, whilst other companies will use rail to transport your vehicle.
