Frequently Asked Questions:

Is shipping non-running vehicles more expensive?

There is added charge to ship cars that are inoperable. This price will depend on the size of the car, extend of the damage and the location from which it is shipped. An average surcharge for a non-running car is $100. It is critical that we are notified of the condition of the car during the placement of the order and especially before the driver arrives to pick up the vehicle.

What kind of equipment is needed to transport a non-running car

It is important to make sure that the car being shipped  will at least roll, steer and brake. Certain car haulers are better equipped to transport cars that are damaged or not running. Because fewer trucks can ship non-running cars there may be a delay associated with those transports. We have an extensive network of carriers that specialize in hauling damaged cars and are a premier shipper of such vehicles.

Do damaged cars need a condition report and will they be inspected

In cases where a vehicle is purchased out of state without first being seen in person by a shipper RCG Logistics will make a condition report per request. Cars with extensive collision damage may be difficult to inspect properly. Unfortunately it is quite common for accessories and removal items to “disappear” from cars whenever picking up at salvage auctions. To facilitate the arbitration procedures please inform us in advance to inspect specific items of a vehicle.

How are damage claims handled during the transportation

Neither RCG Logistics or its drivers are responsible for damages done to non-running vehicles in an attempt to load, secure or unload them off a car hauler. We are also not responsible for damages done to vehicles during transportation that is a direct resultant of a prior collision. Drivers generally secure loose parts whenever transporting cars after a collision, however it is if a hood or trunk lid flies open causing additional damage to the car, RCG Logistics or subcontractors cannot be held liable.


No Keys – When shipping cars with no keys wheels must be pointing straight and transmission be put in neutral. A tow truck is hired for an extra fee to load the car at the pick up location and unload on delivery.

Collision Damage – Damaged cars that won’t roll, need to be loaded by a roll-back tow truck or a forklift. When picking up a vehicle at a salvage auction a forklift is generally available, an adequate size forklift will also be necessary at the time of unloading.

Mechanical Issues - If the car doesn’t start at any point of the transport it is considered non-running. Generally if a car doesn’t start a winch is used to get the car on and off the trailer.
