Salvage car transport: if it rolls, we can help

By in Interesting News and Tips


Whether you’ve purchased a salvage car, or need to get a damaged non-running car home, you may need to use a vehicle transportation service.

Many car transport companies will not take rolling chassis or rolling shells as they can be difficult to load onto the truck. But you’re in luck because Door to Door Car Carrying specialises in interstate salvage car transportation all around Australia! As long as it’s a rolling body, we can help. And it’s more common than you think! There are plenty of reasons why automotive enthusiasts choose to purchase salvage cars interstate and even import cars from overseas. We take a closer look at the benefits of opting for a salvage car for your next restoration project, and how you can get it to your door without any hassles.

Why invest in a salvage car?

Many people will tell you to stay away from salvage and written off cars at all costs. But if you’re handy with a toolbox, and have been around the block a few times when it comes to restoration projects, there’s no reason why investing in a salvage car can’t pay off. Especially when most vehicles are written off with little to no damage at all these days!

Furthermore, it’s far easier to get your hands on a rundown vintage vehicle than it is a fully functional one. People tend to leave classic cars, passed down through the family, in their backyards to rust for decades before getting around to selling them. Who knows, you may come across a Ford Thunderbird wedged between someone’s broken trampoline and spiderwebbed cubby house!

Buying a rolling shell or a rolling chassis will also give you the freedom to design the customised car that you’ve always wanted. Something totally unique that you can wow fellow car enthusiasts with at club meetups.
