Vehicle Transportation

We offer transportation for all types of vehicles, ranging from a lawn mower to a classic car, throughout the UK and Europe.

When people move overseas one thing that often gets overlooked is the transportation of cars. Most assume they will drive their cars to their new home but this could be days worth of travel - especially for those who move to Southern France or Spain.

If you’re driving to your destination, you will need to prepare your car for long-distance driving, including stopping for fuel, rest stops, hotels, and meals. Additionally, you’ll need to be prepared for travel complications like vehicle breakdowns and road works. 

Spending long hours on unfamiliar roads, the impact on children or pets, the cost of overnight accommodation, the tiredness that comes from travelling long distances, not to mention the extra wear and tear to the car, is usually a reason that people prefer to fly to their new home location than drive.

Importance of vehicle transportation

Vehicle transportation is an essential service provided by Cotswold Carriers removal service provider. It plays a crucial role in ensuring the safe and efficient movement of vehicles from one location to another. Whether it is for personal or business purposes, vehicle transportation allows individuals and companies to easily transport their cars, motorcycles, or other vehicles without the hassle of driving them long distances.

One key aspect of vehicle transportation is its importance in relocation. When moving homes or offices, having a reliable vehicle transportation service can make the process much smoother. Instead of driving multiple cars separately or trying to sell and buy new vehicles at the destination, individuals can simply hire a professional vehicle transportation company to transport their vehicles safely and securely.

Moreover, vehicle transportation also benefits businesses that need to move their fleet of vehicles across different locations. Companies such as car rental agencies or dealerships rely heavily on this service to transfer their inventory between branches or deliver newly purchased vehicles to customers. The convenience and reliability offered by professional vehicle transporters ensure that businesses can continue their operations seamlessly without any disruption caused by unreliable drivers or wear and tear on the vehicles during long drives.

Understanding the importance of vehicle transportation offered by Cotswold Carriers removal service provider is vital for individuals relocating homes/offices and businesses requiring the movement of their fleet. This convenient service eliminates stress and time-consuming aspects associated with driving long distances yourself while providing peace of mind knowing that your valuable assets are being transported safely by professionals.

Benefits of including vehicle transportation

One of the main benefits of including vehicle transportation in your relocation plan is convenience. Hiring a professional removal service provider like Cotswold Carriers ensures that your vehicle will be safely transported to your new destination without any hassle or stress on your part. With their expertise and experience, they can handle all aspects of the transportation process, from loading and securing the vehicle to delivering it right to your new doorstep.

Another advantage of including vehicle transportation is cost-effectiveness. While you may think that driving your own car to your new location is cheaper, it can actually end up costing you more in terms of fuel expenses, wear and tear on your vehicle, and potential maintenance issues along the way. By opting for professional vehicle transportation services, you can save money by avoiding these additional costs and also have peace of mind knowing that your car is being transported by skilled professionals who specialize in this type of service.

What type of vehicle transportation do we offer? 

There are two types of cross-country and cross-border vehicle transportation; in a closed trailer, or on an open trailer. Cotswold Carriers offers vehicle transportation in a closed trailer which offers several benefits for you. 

Benefits of closed trailer vehicle transportation:

There are a few benefits to transporting your vehicles in a closed trailer. Whether you need to transport a personal car, a motorcycle, or a vintage car a professional vehicle transportation service might be just what you need.

  1. Enhanced Protection

This is particularly important for transporting vehicles across international borders where the vehicles could be exposed to varying weather conditions. The closed trailer shields vehicles from rain, snow, dirt, dust, and road debris that can potentially cause damage to the exterior or mechanical components of the vehicle.

  1. Increased Security

Security is another key benefit of closed trailer transportation. The vehicle is fully enclosed and out of sight, reducing the risk of theft or vandalism. 

  1. Privacy

Closed trailer transportation allows for complete privacy. This offers privacy if you need to keep your move from prying public eyes. 

  1. Specialised Handling

Closed trailer vehicle transportation often comes with the added advantage of more specialised handling.

  1. Customisable Service

This allows for a tailored transportation service that can cater to the specific needs of any vehicle, ensuring that it arrives at its destination in the same condition it was in when it left.

Tips for effective vehicle transportation

1. One of the most important tips for effective vehicle transportation is to thoroughly research and choose a reputable and experienced removal service provider, such as Cotswold Carriers. It is essential to ensure that the company has proper licensing, insurance, and a proven track record in safely transporting vehicles. Reading customer reviews and testimonials can provide valuable insights into the quality of their services.

2. Before handing over your vehicle for transportation, make sure to clean it thoroughly both inside and out. Removing any personal belongings or loose items from the car will not only prevent them from getting damaged during transportation but also help avoid any potential liability issues. Additionally, taking detailed photographs of your vehicle's condition prior to transportation can serve as evidence in case of any damages that might occur during transit.

3. Properly preparing your vehicle for transportation is crucial for its safety during transit. This includes checking the tire pressure, battery charge, and ensuring all fluids are at appropriate levels. It is also advisable to disable or disconnect any alarm systems or anti-theft devices before loading your vehicle onto the transport carrier. Lastly, remember to remove or secure any exterior accessories like bike racks or spoilers that could get damaged during transport.

4. Communication with the removal service provider is key throughout the entire process of vehicle transportation. Make sure you understand all terms and conditions outlined in their contract before signing it. Keeping an open line of communication allows you to stay informed about pickup/delivery times as well as address any concerns or questions that may arise along the way.
