About Us

Shift A Car is a modern business made up of highly dedicated, highly professional team members.

We are based in Thame, Oxfordshire and have been operating from this base for over 10 years, helping private and trade customers to move their vehicles around the UK.

Our business only has one function - to move your vehicles from a to b for the best possible price, and within a timeframe that meets your requirements. Whether you need to move one or fifty vehicles, tomorrow or next month, we can make it happen. We use the very latest technology to help us achieve this goal, and we are renowned in the trade for our ability to fulfill urgent vehicle deliveries.

Over 10 years of experience at the end of your phone

More than ten years of moving vehicles gives Shift A Car an unrivaled place in the industry. We have intricate knowledge of the transport network in the UK, and have worked with just about every transport company at one time or another. Regardless of where and when you need you car moved, chances are that Shift A Car knows the perfect person for the job already.

This knowledge of the industry is important to help us achieve our goal of being the best, but most importantly it saves money for our customers, and where time-sensitive collections and deliveries are concerned we simply cannot be beaten.

A reputation for quality and service

The very best level of service is what we strive to achieve. It's not something we just talk about, it's something we work on every day and push ourselves to maintain. We have a growing reputation within the trade as a company who can deliver, but we're also known as a company who are highly communicative and pleasant to deal with.

As part of this dedication to service we have worked hard to achieve ISO accreditation in 2011/12 and we continue to invest in technology and team building in order to provide an even better service in years to come.

Our Mission


Provide great customer service

Our customers deserve to be treated fairly and kept informed at all times. We will always work within those rules.

Build Europe's biggest transportation network

We already have the biggest network in the UK, and now we're moving vehicles across the water.

Deliver the very best value for money

Often cheaper than dealing directly with a transport company, when it comes to value for money we will never be beaten.

Our Philosophy

Making car transportation simple and affordable

Transport companies are usually small outfits who operate almost exclusively from within a local area. They are often booked many days in advance and have to charge enough money to cover both outward and return journeys. This can make it difficult to find a transport company who can fit your needs at a price you like.

Shift A Car have a network of 200+ transport companies in the UK, plus others across Ireland and Europe. This means we can match your requirement with the most suitable transport company on any given day, often allowing transporters to combine jobs saving both you and them lots of money. As a customer you deal only with our team who work 9-5 from our base in Thame, Oxfordshire.  

Your Advantage

Less risk, less stress, less cost

All transport companies must be fully insured and vetted before they can join our network. We provide them with 100's of jobs every month so long as they maintain our very high standards.

Dealing with Shift A Car is practically stress free. Tell us your requirement, we do all the leg work and provide you with all the information you need. We specialise in short-notice movements.

We are rarely more expensive than going direct to a transport company, and in a lot of cases we are considerably cheaper. You will also spend a lot less of your own time when you deal with us.
