Car Engine Shipping

Compare Carriers

Shop for rates from multiple carriers using our instant rate quote tool. Some carriers offer cheaper rates in specific areas or services. FreightCenter will help you find the right carrier for your engine shipment.

Proper Engine Packaging

Package your engine properly by crating it and securing it to a standard pallet. If scratches and dents are a concern, your freight should be enclosed and uncrushable.

Triple Check

When your freight arrives, make sure you immediately check for any damage that occurred during transportation. Over the road transportation can be rough on improperly packaged goods.

Use Freight Terminals

Take your crated or palletized engine directly to the carrier terminal to save on the first and last leg of travel. Use terminal to terminal services to save on accessorial charges and extra fees.

Be Accurate

Give the most accurate weight possible when quoting (total shipping weight must include packaging).

Shipping Prep

Drain all liquids – including water – before shipping to avoid delay, damage, and additional charges.
