If you’re moving house and need your car moving, or you have just bought a new car and need to have it delivered to your home, there are many vehicle transportation options you can look into. uShip can help you find the right company for you, look into different vehicle movers in the UK, how much it costs, how to do it, and help give you hints and tips at the same time.

Our unique marketplace will allow you to find the ideal car delivery service for your needs, and within your price range. Also you need to do is write a listing of the service you require, with as much information as possible. This will include the car details, such as model and make. From there, various vehicle transport UK providers will contact you with quotations. These car delivery quotes will allow you to find the best option for you.

How to Ship a Car in the UK

With just three easy steps, we make your car delivery easy.

1 | Create Your Delivery Listing

What is your budget? What can you realistically afford? You then need to think about what type of truck or trailer to use, how quickly you need the delivery, and any other issues you have, such as worries about damage. It’s important to be as specific as possible with your listing, and mention any issues, e.g. low bumpers on your vehicle, or added extras which might make regular transportation difficult. This ensures you get the best tailor-made service.

Upon completion of your car transport listing you will be given two options - transport which is open, or transport which is covered, or enclosed. This depends on your personal preference over the kind of car transporter you want. A closed version is best for vehicles which have high value, e.g. sports cars, classic cars, etc. These types of vehicles require special attention, to ensure that extra protection is given whilst they are in transit. The open option means that your vehicle will be transported in an open trailer, and therefore open to the elements. This option is fine for many people, and does cost less than the closed option.

2 | Find the Best Car Transport Company

All our car delivery services have their own personal profile on our uShip marketplace. This allows you to dig a little deeper into the company itself, including its history, any safety records, and reviews from previous customers. You will also be able to see photographs, to show you the type of equipment they use to transport cars from A to B. This helps you make your final choice, using feedback from those who have had the same experience in the past.

When you are happy with your final decision, you can accept the bid from your chosen car carrier UK company, and move on to make arrangements.

3 | Car Transportation & Delivery

Upon choosing your particular car delivery service UK option, you will see accurate contact information. You should then directly contact them to raise any concerns or questions you have, to put your mind at rest about anything which is nagging away. You can then arrange the collection and delivery details, as well as giving them any other relevant information, such as any third party details, e.g. telephone numbers. All of this will smooth the way for your car to be delivered faster and more effectively. You should have payment available at the specified time, and if you do find you encounter problems, we are always on hand to help you out.

How Much Does it Cost to Move a Car in the UK?

How much does it cost to tow a car in the UK? What is the cost of having a car in London moved from A to B? These are common questions, and more! The truth is that the cost completely depends upon your needs and requirements, such as how far you’re transporting the vehicle, the type of car, the type of service you want (closed or open), and any other specifics which could affect the service. If your car is going through a difficult rural area, such as car transport in Scotland for example, this could affect the price too. Prices vary from the shorter distance deliveries inside the UK under 200 miles from £81 to £326 with longer moves over 250 miles ranging from £315 to £630.

It’s likely that at this point you have questions about the cost of cars in the UK being transported from place to place, and to ease your curiosity, you can check out our costing index on our website. This will show you various shipments just like yours and you can compare how much they cost, and the type of service received. This will give you an idea of what to expect in much clearer detail. For instance, if you are looking for heavy haulers in the Doncaster area, you can check our index page and look for similar areas and services, to give you a larger overview. You can also look for car transporter hire in Scotland, if that is the service you’re searching for.
