How to ship a car that doesn’t run

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

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.

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.
