Does eBay Ship Cars?

No, eBay does not ship cars. The buyer is typically responsible for shipping the vehicle. Occasionally, eBay dealerships may offer free shipping. It is important to note that if a private seller states they provide free shipping, they are most likely attempting to scam you.


There are many ways to safely ship your vehicle from eBay Motors. For example, you can have it hauled in an enclosed car transport trailer, towed, loaded into a multi-car open transport trailer, or even shipped via train. Keep in mind that the method you use to ship your car will depend on various factors. For more information, you may visit our help page that explains the various types of vehicle transportation methods.

Choose Your Car Shipping Company

After receiving quotes, you will want to review carrier profiles before choosing an auto transporter to ship your car from eBay Motors. You should scan their uShip profile to see if they have a valid USDOT or MC number as well as insurance. You should also look at their profile for feedback and ratings from previous shipments conducted on uShip. Look into a uShip protection plan to cover any gaps. 

Make sure to communicate with your chosen carrier that you have purchased the vehicle from eBay Motors. Moreover, you will need to coordinate with both the seller and carrier to decide on a specific time and day for pickup. Be sure to request that the carrier inspects the vehicle prior to loading it on a trailer. A good eBay car shipping company will provide a full condition report for the seller to sign off on. This will come in handy should you need to file an insurance claim later on. 

Prepare Your Car for Shipment From eBay Motors

Lastly, make sure to ask the seller to prepare the vehicle for shipping. This is a very important step when buying a car on eBay without seeing it and having it shipped across state lines. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
