Transporting a vehicle that does not run ('in-op')

Posted On: Friday November 22nd, 2013

Transporting an "in-op" vehicle is complicated and a little more difficult than shipping a standard car. Cars are driven on and off of a carrier so when a non-running vehicle is being transported the best thing is to get a carrier with a winch.

The problem with having to winch it onto the truck is that a) it's incredibly difficult and demands the skill and know-how in order to actually use it, and b) it takes a lot more time and effort than simply driving a car onto the carrier. This means that the driver has to do a lot more work in order to load or unload the "in-op" vehicle. There are not a lot of transporters that do not have a winch, they do not have tools to install one, nor do they have the knowledge on how to use it. The cost can be up to an additional $100.00 to transport an "in-op" vehicle on the same route as a car that runs.
