Finding a car transporter is a relatively simple process. However, there are several things to keep in mind to ensure a successful transporter.
Firstly, for when do you need your car transport or convoy? Finding a car transporter and completing the necessary paperwork can take several days.
Second, what type of car transport service do you need? If getting the cheapest price is your only concern, you may want to consider finding a car ferry company that will drive your car to its destination. If, on the other hand, you do not want your car to be driven, it can be transported by truck.
The car transporter’s choice of truck will have an impact on the level of service and price you can expect. A single car trailer is usually used for urgent transport, however, as only one car is moved at a time, the cost of transport is usually higher. On the other hand, multi-car trailers can carry several cars at once, delivery will be slower but you can get better prices.
Once you have determined the service you want, you need to choose a company to transport your car. This is where Shiply comes in: place a free ad for your car delivery and receive quotes from competing car transport and car courier companies to do the job for you. Be sure to research the carrier you choose, especially their insurance coverage.
Before you send your car for delivery, you will need to make some preparations. You need to check for any existing damage, and document it. Also make sure you collect all your personal items.
Types of car transport
Choosing the right car transporter for your car delivery is very important. You should keep in mind that you will receive several quotes from car transporters offering different services on Shiply, ranging from car delivery to trucking. In addition, these carriers will have different levels and types of insurance.
You should therefore consider the importance of the price of the car delivery, the urgency of the car transport, and the level of protection required during the car transport. These factors determine the choice between car delivery (often the cheapest option), trailer transport and truck transport.
Before choosing your carrier, it is highly recommended to check their profile page to verify their level of insurance and the reviews posted by customers who have already transported with that carrier. This will help you judge the reliability of the carrier.
Once you’ve looked at all this information, you can choose the right quote for you and enjoy the peace of mind of having your car transported.
Organising the transport of your car
Once you have chosen a car transporter and accepted their quote, we advise you to request a copy of their insurance certificate from the transporter before the transport is undertaken to ensure that your car will be fully covered by the transporter’s insurance in the event of a problem during the car transport/car trip.
The next step is to agree on the method of payment for your car transport with the carrier and then agree on the pick-up and delivery dates for the car transport/car ferry.
