How Do I Ship a Salvaged Car?

How Do I Ship a Salvaged Car?

How Do You Ship A Car With A Salvaged Title?

The first question most people have when shipping a vehicle is “How much will it cost?” The answer to this question can vary based on a number of factors, the most important of which tend to be the type of vehicle and how far it’s being transported. For the most part, vehicles with a salvaged title, or those than don’t run, cost slightly more than standard shipping. If you’d like to quickly get a ballpark estimate of the price of shipping a car from one state to another, you can click here to find the costs for recent shipments.

Typical Vehicle Shipping Prices: How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of shipping an automobile can vary from as little as $500 to as much as $1,200 or more, depending on the kind of transport and the distance. Shipping distances of less than 500 miles will incur a lower price, often as little as $100-$200. Vehicles with a salvage title or those are not running incur an additional $50 to $100 in fees, but otherwise the rates are comparable.

Best Methods For Shipping A Vehicle With A Salvage Title

New Deals are now available for shipping all types vehicles using our vetted reliable shippers. Compare price estimates & Unlock up 25% off.

Whether you purchased a salvaged car from an auction or a vehicle you already own was damaged in an accident, there are plenty of options when you need it shipped. In fact, most companies that ship vehicles should be able to ship one with a salvaged title, although there are some that will not be able to transport a non-running car. See the link at the bottom of this page for information about shipping a non-operable vehicle.

When shipping a vehicle with a salvage title, it’s recommended to use door-to-door transport. The reason behind using this method of shipping is because registering a vehicle with a salvaged title requires some extra steps that often includes a road test. You can skip any additional risk involved with the shipment by having it delivered directly to its final destination. If you’re shipping a salvage title that is not in running condition, it’s an even better idea to use door-to-door transport since your only other option would be to have it towed or haul it yourself, which again, is risky if the transport terminal is not in the same city you’re shipping to.

Salvage Title Resources

What Is A Salvage Title? - An article from Edmunds that details what makes a vehicle a salvage title. It’s important to remember that a vehicle does not have to be undriveable to have a salvaged title. It’s based on the amount of damage in relation to the value of the vehicle.

Shipping A Non-operable Vehicle - Information about shipping a car or truck that is not in running condition. While a salvage title vehicle can sometimes be shipped through normal procedures (providing it runs), a non-operable vehicle requires additional equipment and labor.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
