How is Classic Car Shipping Different Than Regular Car Shipping?

Enclosed shipping for classic cars differs from regular car shipping in that it provides a higher level of protection and specialized care. Classic cars are valuable, delicate, and hold sentimental or historical significance. Enclosed car shipping involves transporting the vehicle in a fully enclosed trailer or container, for complete protection from the elements, road debris, and potential damage. This method is designed to minimize the risk of scratches, dents, or any other harm that could occur during transportation. 

Oppositely, shipping other types of vehicles typically involves open carriers where vehicles are exposed to the elements and potential road hazards. Enclosed shipping for classic cars ensures that they are handled with extra precautions, utilizing soft tie-downs, padded supports, and climate-controlled environments when necessary. The focus is on preserving the pristine condition of the classic car and safeguarding its value, making it the preferred choice for owners seeking the highest level of protection and care for their cherished vehicles. You can trust your precious vehicle with us! 


How to Prepare Your Vehicle for Enclosed Shipping

Preparing your classic car for enclosed shipping involves several steps. Here's a checklist to help you prepare!

  1. Clean the exterior: Thoroughly wash and clean the exterior of your classic car. Remove any dirt, grime, or debris that may have accumulated. Don't forget those harder-to-get areas,  like wheels, undercarriage, and grille.

  2. Document the condition: Grab your camera! Be sure to take detailed photographs of your classic car from all angles, capturing any existing scratches, dents, or imperfections.

  3. Empty the vehicle: Remove all your personal belongings, random loose items, or accessories from the interior (if applicable). This helps reduce the risk of damage during transit and ensures that the car is empty and ready for shipping.

  4. Secure or remove loose parts: If your classic car has any removable or loose parts, such as spoilers, antennas, or mirrors, either secure them properly or remove them and pack them separately.  If your classic car has a convertible top, make sure it is securely fastened or properly stowed

  5. What are the fluid levels?: Ensure that all fluid levels, including fuel, oil, and coolant, are at appropriate levels. 

  6. Check out battery and tire pressure: Ensure that the battery is fully charged and securely connected. Then, check tire pressure and inflate them to the recommended levels.
