How To Move Non-Runners and Salvage Vehicles
Just because your car is immobile does not mean it cannot be moved. In fact, one of the greatest ironies is that you will need a car transport service to move your car when it doesn't run. There are many questions asked about transporting non-running or non-drivable vehicles, and we are here to answer them for you.
Often people purchase old vehicles and vehicles from restoration interstate and need to get them moved to another location. Other times, the non-running car might need to be transported to a specific garage for repairs, or you need transport from an auction.
If you have a car that won’t move and it's taking up your space, Moving Cars can help. We specialize in shipping non-drivable cars and non-running cars in Australia to your desired destination.
Shipping a vehicle that won’t run can be challenging because it involves different procedures, years of training, and equipment. Some won’t roll due to the damaged wheels, while others won’t start due to collision damage. You must find a professional transport company because such cars are delicate and should be handled carefully. With over 16 years of experience in logistics and transport, we provide the best transportation assistance nationwide.

Transportation Of Damaged Vehicles
Moving a salvaged car can be a tricky business – it’s not the same as transporting a new or functional car as salvage vehicles are often badly damaged with parts missing, which can make them hard to maneuver onto transporters.
Salvaged vehicles can therefore be extremely difficult to transport, especially if the condition of the vehicle is particularly poor, perhaps even totally nonfunctional, so at Moving Cars, we take extra safety precautions and sometimes even use expensive specialized pieces of equipment to transport your salvaged vehicle.
We know that what might look like a car wreck to some people could become the car of your dreams, so we make every effort to respect the lack of vehicle functionality so that no further damage to the salvaged car occurs. We can provide the proper loading and unloading equipment which is used to ensure no further damage is done to the salvaged vehicle, giving you peace of mind for your brand-new old car.
Shipping A Salvage Vehicle
So, if shipping is involved, a salvaged vehicle will usually require special equipment – as many salvaged cars roll and steer, and therefore might require winches or cables when being pulled onto a carrier, and special forklifts are often used to ensure further damage isn’t done when loading and unloading. Most car carriers won’t let you drag a salvage car off a trailer in case it causes damage to their own vehicle – our specialist equipment will ensure this won’t happen.
If you bought your salvage car out of state because the price tag was lower, you certainly don’t want to spend too much more transporting it to where you live. You’ll need a transport company that knows not only the salvage car business well but also the vehicle shipping or transportation business exceptionally well too.
You’ll want a company that knows how to deal with Salvage Auctions and what documents are needed.
