Vehicle transportation is a great way to get your vehicle delivered from A to B when you can’t (or just don’t want to) drive it yourself. There may be any number of reasons why your car needs to be transported or your van delivered, and there are a number of different ways you can get your vehicle sent to a destination of your choice.
If you wish to send a vehicle via transporter, and it’s roadworthy, then you can arrange for a delivery driver to physically drive it to you. So long as it has an up-to-date MOT the vehicle doesn’t need to be taxed or registered as the delivery driver will use trader plates to ensure it can be driven on public roadways.
Alternatively, if it is a single, small vehicle (such as a car) that needs to be delivered, a trailer might be a better option, particularly if the vehicle isn’t roadworthy. Perfect for eBay purchases that are perhaps not in the best of shape, cars that need some work, motorcycles, or any other suitably sized vehicle that is unable to be driven on the roads, a flatbed trailer is probably your best bet.
For vehicles that are a bit more precious, such as classic cars, specialist kit cars, luxury or prestige vehicles, covered car transporter quotes are available to keep your vehicle safe from prying eyes, not to mention the dust and dirt of UK roads as it travels.
If you have multiple vehicles you need to move, fret not, for multiple vehicle transporters are available. In all likelihood you’ve seen them on the road, behemoths carrying several cars or vans to their final destinations.
Larger vehicles that may not necessarily fit on a normal transport vehicle will need special assistance. Wide loads can be transported if necessary, although the police may need to be notified and an escort provided if the width exceeds a certain limit. Your vehicle transporter of choice should be able to advice you on any additional safety precautions you may need to take.
You may be surprised to learn that the cost of transporting your vehicle across country, or even overseas, is probably not as expensive as you may think.
