How To Ship A Non-Running Car


Is Your Car A Non-Runner?

If your car does not start or run it will take a specialized carrier to transport your vehicle.

Red Foot Haulers specializes in non-running car shipping. Our drivers are experienced and have trucks with the equipment needed to move non-running vehicles onto the car carrier.

Top Reasons To Ship A Non-Running Car or Vehicle:

  1. Your vehicle does not Start or Drive
  2. You are restoring a Classic Car or a Custom Car
  3. Buying a Damaged car from the auction, and need it delivered to your house

Transporting vehicles that do not start requires a special truck. If a vehicle does not run, roll, brake, or steer it is considered a “non-runner.”

Non-running vehicles need to pulled onto the car carrier with a winch. Then they are carefully strapped into place to prevent movement and damage during transport. Our driver’s trucks also come equipped with a loader, which can be a forklift to lift your vehicle onto the carrier.
