What is the process for transporting classic cars?

What are the options for classic car transport – enclosed or open?
Before shipping classic cars it is important to understand what the options are. We have a range of transport options to choose from to ship classic cars, depending on your needs and budget. We can provide enclosed transport for those who want extra security and protection for their car, or we can use an open trailer if you’re looking to save money. No matter which option you choose, you can be sure that your classic vehicle will arrive at its destination in the same condition it left.
Which option to choose based on your needs and budget?
If you’re like most classic car owners, you want your vehicle to look its best at all times. This means that you’ll need a transport service that can handle your car with care. In the case of classic cars, that means an enclosed trailer.
If you’re on a tight budget and your car doesn’t need all the bells and whistles, we can ship it using an open-air transport service. This won’t have as much protection for your vehicle but will be more cost-effective than other options.
Benefits of each type of transport
Enclosed Transport: Just as it sounds: a safe and secure way to protect vehicles from weather elements such as rain or snow and road conditions. Your car is placed inside an enclosed trailer used for shipping cars. This type of transport is perfect for high-value cars, rare models, or vehicles that need extra protection.
Open Transport: The most common way to transport a car. This option uses an open trailer that can hold several cars at once. As previously mentioned, your car is exposed to weather elements and road conditions. It’s less expensive than enclosed transport and perfect for standard cars.
During a long-distance transport, debris, road, and weather conditions can dirty your car and most high-end car owners want their vehicles looking their best at all times. If you have a classic Model A or a neck-turning BelAir, you will want to keep the elements far from your vehicle’s exterior, so opting for an enclosed transport would serve you best with that concern. We have specialists on hand that are ready to formulate the best classic car shipping for you and your vehicle.
We walk you through the entire process. Stress-free classic car shipping no matter what your shipment needs are.

The hallmarks of vehicles are of the classical, vintage, or exotic variant. They have some of the most iconic looks in vehicle history and are heavily sought after.

We have reliable coordinators and drivers that will make your transport smooth and give you peace of mind. We give you the information necessary to stay in touch with your driver at all times.

With over 15 years of experience, we can set up a swift, safe, and reliable classic car shipping that will get your classic or antique car to your front door looking at its top shape with our door-to-door service.
How Much is Classic Car Transport?
The average cost to transport a classic car is generally $500.00 to $2,000.00 more than the standard car transport. The covered trailers and equipment used to protect classic cars are top of the line the best available in the industry. When you compare the benefits of classic car transport service with the additional cost, you will find its value.
Prepare Your Antique Car for Transport
While our antique car transporters know what to do based on their previous experience, you can also prepare your vehicle to ensure your antique car is ready for shipping:
1| Wash Your Vehicle
Clean and wash your vehicle’s interior and exterior. The car must be almost entirely empty for transport.
2| Document Existing Damage
Take pictures of existing dents or scratches. Pictures provide fair documentation in the event of a damage dispute.
3| Remove After Market Parts
Some of these parts and components include antennas, DVD players, luggage racks, bike racks, toll passes, etc.
4| 1/4 Tank of Gas
An almost empty tank will help save weight and help avoid additional charges. Run the gas tank down to a quarter or eight full.
5| Perform Mechanical Inspection
Check breaks, including emergency breaks, battery, ignition, tires and fluids. Minor leaks can cause major problems, especially if car is travelling hundreds of miles.
