Kind of Vehicles to Ship

A typical car shipping company can handle any type of car, from a small sports car to a large luxury vehicle. In addition, they can transport most standard sized pick-up trucks, vans, and SUVs. These types of vehicles all fit on a standard open carrier.
For extra large pick-up trucks, vans, or SUVs, a different type of carrier may be needed. While most car shipping companies can help you get these types of vehicles shipped, it is important to let them know when getting an initial quote that you have a large vehicle. It is easiest for everyone, if they can provide you with an accurate quote initially.
If you want to ship a motorcycle, you should consider using a company that specializes in motorcycle shipping. While many carriers can handle motorcycles, you want a company that has the proper equipment for strapping a motorcycle into place and uses it frequently.
To ship an inoperable vehicle (one that cannot be driven onto the car carrier), you need a carrier with the appropriate equipment for getting your inoperable vehicle onto the truck. Most car shipping companies can ship an inoperable vehicle as long as you let them know that it is inoperable when they are providing a quote for you.
