How to Ship A Wrecked Vehicle?

Shipping a salvaged car is not an easy process. Requiring lots of care, attention, special tools, and equipment, like a forklift, — it’s one of the heaviest car shipping processes ever. It’s much more difficult to prepare the salvaged vehicle for shipping than it would be with the unharmed one.

Empire Auto Transportation offers to ship of non-running and wrecked cars. Some cars cannot roll due to the collision, while the others even don’t have any wheel. We offer salvage vehicle transport to ship any level of the damaged car.

The most frequent issues of cars’ incapacity are:

Blocked Wheels

If the car wheels are not parallel to each other and don’t point straight, and if you cannot turn them, because they’re locked for an anti-theft security, you need to ask auto transport company to load the car and ship it to the necessary location.

Collision Damage

If the car is hardly wrecked and cannot roll, it should be loaded by a rollback tow truck. Very often salvaged cars are displayed for sale at the auction. People used to buy salvaged cars on the auctions, because of a very low price.

No Keys

A keyless vehicle being in a neutral gear can easily roll without any resistance. But there are cars, which need a key to be able to roll. In this case, you need to ask car shipping company to load your car and ship it to the distance you need.

Mechanical Issues

If the car is broken down because of mechanical issues, and it is non-running, there is nothing like asking one of the auto transport companies to solve your problem and load the car on the trailer.

Things To Know Before Buying A Salvaged Car On The Auction

A salvaged vehicle is considered to be uneconomic by the insurance company. It’s a widely spread event, when the wrecked, damaged, broken, or destroyed vehicle repair exceeds the value of the car. Every car is provided with a pre-accident payout, which is equal to the value of the car. The insurance company pays out the pre-accident value of the car to its owner and since that time the car is considered to be a personal property of the insurance company.The further destiny of the car is decided on the various car auctions. Salvaged cars are often sold by parts, but there are cases when they may be resold to the public. One of the benefits of purchasing a salvaged vehicle is its low price. Due to the car damage, the vehicle is given a definite level of damage.
