The overall process of vehicle transportation is a relatively uncomplicated one. However, there are a few things to bear in mind when choosing which company to go with. Delivering a vehicle can often be a time-consuming process, particularly if your vehicle needs to be shipped internationally. Planning in advance allows your vehicle transporter to organise the shipping route in advance which helps them to reduce their costs, and in turn offer you more value for money.
Choosing the method of your delivery is another important factor. The most efficient way is to simply have your vehicle driven by the vehicle transporter to your destination. They take care of the necessary legal requirements such as trade plates and insurance. Alternatively, you can choose to have a trailer transport your vehicle. The main benefit of this option is that costs are often lower as the vehicle transport company can transport many vehicles at once and so are able to spread the cost.
For those large items of furniture and other household goods, hiring a man and van service is probably the best way to go. You might be loathe to hire someone else to do a job you believe could be completed by you and your mates, but the risk of damage due to inexperience and cost of van hire and fuel outweighs the relatively inexpensive cost of hiring a man (or woman!) and van. Not only will they be more experienced than you and your friends, they will also be properly insured against injury or damage. For the best value quote, organise the move for a weekday when man and van hire is less popular.
