How much does it cost to transport a car within the EU?

You spent hours on scrolling through thousands of car offers. When you find a deal that meets all your requirements and you think you can finally breath a sigh of relief – well, it turns out you can’t. Sometimes you are not able to collect your car yourself or a pick-up location is far away from where you live or you simply want to import a car, you need to sort it out somehow.

The easiest way is to find transport provider who will do that for you. In this article I will give you a look into costs of car transport within the UK and between the UK and selected EU countries.

How to transport a car?

The price may differ depending on the pick-up and delivery locations, lenght of the route, city and type of  vehicle that is about to be moved. The most important thing is to find a company that is already taking the same route your car needs to go. If this transport provider has a free space on the trailer, it’s a real bargain for you and for that company. They reduce empty runs and therefore are able to give you a good quote.

The prices can be 30-60% lower thanks to this. Below you will find the cost breakdown of car transport offers. Note, that we analysed only single car transport offers.

    I like your recommendation to find a company that is already going where you need to bring your car. My wife and I are considering bringing our car with us during the summer this year but we don’t want to drive it ourselves. We may also consider private car transportation instead so we don’t have to worry about driving in a foreign area.
