On Shipping Automobile Parts

Car Parts 1Many customers have this zany idea that, since we can help them get their automobile shipped, we can help get your automobile parts shipped too. Like engines, or tires, or spare nuts and bolts, but guess what? We can’t. It’s pretty simple, when you think about it: car parts make up a car, but they aren’t an entire car when they’re disassembled. This means that you can’t just put them onto the back of a car transport carrier in a box and have them moved; the industry doesn’t work that way. Car transporters have a specific set of cargo that they can ship, and it includes cars, trucks, SUV’s, minivans, motor homes, sport utility vehicles, cargo vans, even golf carts and dune buggies, but the difference is that all of those things are vehicles, not parts of vehicles. You may be able to ship your parts in a box in the trunk of a car you’re shipping, but they can’t be shipped standalone; it’s against the law, quite frankly, since car shippers aren’t licensed to carry car parts unless they’re actually attached to the car, and as such shipping car parts is best relegated to someone like FedEx or UPS or something.

But it’s not just about licensing; part of it also has to do with safety. A car transport truck is built much differently from a standard long-haul truck. It’s not modular in the sense that there is a cab and a trailer, and as the back of the truck is specifically tailored to haul automobiles, it’s not like there’s a spot that a driver can just secure a box into and call it good. Any automobile parts that would be shipped by a car transport truck would have to be either secured in the car being shipped (which is technically illegal, though many carriers allow it) or else put in the cab of the truck and hauled around like a box of clothes or something. This…no one will do this for you. It’s tiresome, cumbersome, and really outside the scope of what auto shippers do. They haul cars all day, every day, sometimes hitting multiple cities for pickup and delivery. They won’t have the energy or the time to ensure that your random box of car parts is delivered safely when they have entire cars they have to take care of. Not only that, but what if everyone started shipping car parts along with their cars and the carrier’s solution was to just put them up front? There’d be a huge pile of boxes, no one knowing whose is whose unless they’re properly labeled (and rarely are they).

There are a lot more reasons for why auto shippers can’t haul just auto parts around, and why they need the entire car in order to help. If you have more questions or need a better explanation, give us a call at 800-930-7417 and speak to one of our live agents; they know all there is to know about the auto transport industry and can give you a definitive answer on whether or not you can ship automobile parts with the carrier that is also shipping your car. You can also peruse our other blog posts and articles about auto transportation services; you’re guaranteed to find some good information there. Of course, if you need quotes to ship a vehicle, you should fill out our free online quote request form and get multiple quotes e-mailed to you. These shippers are the ones that book orders for customers and they also have friendly and professional representatives you can talk to directly and ask questions to.
