Can I Ship Plants in a Car?

Ship Plants in a CarSomething you have to realize when you’re shipping a car is that carriers are trained to transport vehicles. We’ve had a lot of customers ask us whether they can ship specific household goods, ranging from the mundane to the exotic.

While many carriers will adopt a “junk in the trunk” mentality for a lot of things, there are certain items that they have to put their foot down for. We’ve covered a few before, notably pets and guns. But we’ve never spoken about whether or not you can ship plants in a car. And the answer is “most likely not.”

I can’t ship plants in a car?

Not usually, no. Plants are living things, even if they operate a bit differently than what we’re used to. But they still require food and water and nutrients and room to grow. Most of the time plants won’t even fit in a car, but even if they can you likely still can’t put them in there.

For one, a carrier can’t take the time to care for them the way they would need to. They can’t stop every day to water some customer’s plants. They have better things to do with their time. They also accept zero responsibility for the outcome of it even if they do let it slide or don’t see it. So right there that’s two things.

But more than that is the fact that if something happens and that plant tips over you suddenly have soil all over your car. The carrier won’t take responsibility for that – why would they? Yeah, your car will be secured on the truck, but that doesn’t secure it from the laws of physics.

If a plant is not secured properly it can tip over under heavy cornering or braking. Thus, it would spill all that soil all over the place, much to your chagrin. The carrier won’t care – their job is to ship your car from A to B and make sure it arrives without damage or incident. But if you make their job harder, you can’t be surprised if it shows up with soil all over the backseat, you know?

But I can get a quote to ship a car, right?
