Three Tips for Shipping Classic Cars
Car shows are often an extremely important event for classic or antique car and truck collectors. Many classic car collectors have multiple vehicles and therefore need assistance in transporting their automobiles for various showcases. Consequently, many classic and antique car collectors form long term relationships with car shipping companies. At Auto Transport we have a great deal of experience in dealing with classic cars and have longstanding working relationships with a number of classic car collectors and dealers.
Maintaining a classic car’s pristine condition and keeping its mileage low are two very important factors for most classic car collectors and car shipping is the best way to make sure that both these needs are met. So if you are interested in using a hauling company to transport your classic car collection, here are three tips to ensure your car’s protection during transportation.
Check What Type of Trailer
Here at Auto Transport, we recommend that every classic car or truck should be shipped in an enclosed trailer. Classic cars generally have a greater value than normal road cars and therefore any damage to classic automobiles can drastically affect their value. When an automobile is shipped on an open-air trailer, although it is still very rare, they are more likely to be damaged during transportation. An enclosed trailer protects your vehicle from debris on the road, any potential harsh weather, and prying eyes
It is important to check the type of trailer that your chosen hauling company plans to use as not all companies offer enclosed transportation services. If you would like more information about the enclosed trailer services that we offer at Auto Transport give us a call today on (800) 757-7125 or if you would free costing estimates use our free quote tool.
Always Check Your
Classic Cars On Delivery
Never accept your automobiles upon delivery before you have thoroughly checked it for damage. Here at Auto Transport, we are so confident in our reliable service that we will always encourage you to check your classic cars upon delivery. Customer satisfaction is our top priority and we want you to rest assured that your cars will always be transported safely by Auto Transport.
Drain Your Classic Vehicle's Tank
Most credible car transportation companies will request that your car’s fuel tank be no more than a quarter way full. Unsurprisingly, fuel is far heavier than other liquids like water and if your classic car has a full tank when it is shipped the weight of the trailer will be greatly increased. If the trailer is overweight at the weighing station it can cause a hold-up whilst the staff members find out where the extra weight is coming from, which could delay your order.
