Have you recently won or are you thinking of bidding on a car or vehicle on eBay? Are you unsure of how to get it delivered and more importantly how much it will cost? 

Before I moved my car I did a lot of research on the internet, and just wanted to share some of the key points you should consider before choosing a car transporter:

o    Does the price quoted include VAT?
o    Ask about insurance, all reputable companies have insurance, but the value and level of cover can vary.  Ensure it is your vehicle that is covered not just their own vehicle.
o    How will your vehicle be delivered, will they use a vehicle transporter, a trailer, or a towing vehicle?
o    Check your own car insurance, it may already cover your vehicle in transit.
o    If you opt for your vehicle to be driven to you rather than transported on a trailer, be sure that it is road legal (insurance, tax, driver holds valid licence).

Preparing your Car for the move:

o    Before moving your vehicle ensure you remove personal items, and anything left in the car is securely tied down.
o    Also note that overloading your boot with heavy items may result in damage to your car's undercarriage.

To get the best possible service and price it is advisable to get quotes from a number of companies, one website that allows you to easily do this is Shiply, which is an eBay certified solution and completely free to use.

You can read more about Shiply on eBay's web site here:

When I moved a car using  Shiply I found that I received many bids from different vehicle transportation companies, so I achieved a much lower price.  Many of the companies were already doing similar routes and were just filling their load to a greater capacity which is also good for the environment.
