Utilising a transport company is the single most effective way of moving a vehicle from one place to another. Car dealerships make use of their services when taking delivery of new stock or relocating stock to another premise, so clearly the vehicles are considered to be in good hands.
If you’ve ever wondered how you can relocate your vehicle to where it needs to be without having to drive it yourself, read on to learn more.
How Does Vehicle Transportation Work?
There are usually two options. The first involves a third-party driver driving your vehicle to its intended destination. This will often work out far cheaper than hiring the services of a low loader.
The other option is hiring a company who will send a suitable transportation vehicle to your location, load your car or other personal vehicle onto the back of it and then deliver and unload it at its intended destination.
Some points for consideration include;
- A third party driving your vehicle is only possible if its road legal and in good working order.
- Someone driving your vehicle is likely to place additional wear and tear on it and you have no say in how the vehicle is driven.
Buying or Selling a Car
Using the services of a transportation company has become increasingly popular when buying and selling cars.
To access the most choice, it is rarely a good idea to limit yourself to car purchases which are in your locality, say a 20 mile radius. This is because you will often pay more for a substandard vehicle, especially if rare. Instead, being able to choose from one of thousands of cars around the country and have it delivered to you is of great benefit.
The same applies to anyone who may want to buy a vehicle that you’re selling. Rather than travel half way across the country to view it, you can send them detailed photos and a description and then between you arrange for a courier to have the car picked up and delivered.
Relocating Unroadworthy and Broken-Down Vehicles
Sometimes you will find yourself waking up to a car that won’t start or has developed another fault which makes it undriveable. Getting a mechanic to visit your property can be difficult as they prefer to work from their garages for a variety of reasons.
In this instance, having the car picked up and driven to a garage of your choice is one way you can save yourself the hassle of trying to fix the problem from home. Simply arrange pickup with a company of your choice and they will deliver the car wherever you need it to be.
Find a Transportation Company
There are several operating across the UK who will usually pick up and deliver to any mainland location. LM Recovery is one such company who proves a nationwide vehicle transportation service. We would suggest contacting more than one to get a better idea of what it should cost. Whatever you do, make sure that the company you hire has the right insurance coverage and will cover you in the event anything happens to your vehicle whilst in their possession.
Moving a vehicle from one place to another has never been easier with the onset of accessible and cost effective recovery services.
