Shipping non ops may be a little tricky, but it is certainly possible. We can ship cars regardless of condition. Engine won’t turn over? Not a problem. No wheels? Not a problem. It can get a little complicated, and almost always costs extra to ship, but we have a solution for any vehicle.
Reasons for Shipping Non Ops
It may seems strange to ship a car that is not in good running order. However, there are a few circumstances in which customers want or need to. Perhaps the car is a family heirloom recently inherited. Or maybe it is an antique show car being transported to a new exhibit.
Online auctions are another popular reason for shipping non ops. Whether you plan on rebuilding a rare, vintage, or antique car from the frame out or are buying a secondary car to use as spare parts, you will need to ship it from point A to point B.
Methods For Shipping Non Ops
When it comes to shipping non ops, certain modifications to the shipping process must be made. The method used depends on the condition of the vehicle. If the vehicle has no wheels, then obviously it cannot be driven or even pushed onto the carrier. In most cases a fork lift will have to be employed.
Of course, this means a fork lift will need to be available at the pick up and drop off points of the shipment. You may have to arrange for a forklift to be present, but sometimes the truck driver may be familiar with an operator in the area.
If the car does have wheels, it certainly makes everyone’s job easier. Even if the car does not start (or if the keys are not available), it can usually be pushed onto the carrier. If it cannot be placed in neutral to be pushed, then a winch will be used. A winch is the same mechanism used to attach a car to a tow truck. Speaking of trucks, the kind of carrier used for shipping non ops is probably going to be a flat bed truck.
