How To Locate Reliable Classic Car Shipping

How To Locate Reliable Classic Car Shipping

The iconic movie, "Fast and Furious", has a special place in the hearts and minds of car lovers everywhere. From Steve McQueen’s green Mustang GT 390 in Bullitt to Vin Diesel’s 1970 Dodge Charger in Fast and Furious. These are the steps to make shipping a classic vehicle as easy as possible.

Shipping classic cars are important

Experience in the auto transportation industry is the best thing. Collector cars are especially vulnerable to damage. It is a good idea to create a list of trusted classic car transport brokers who are fully insured and have had years of experience with classic cars. Google and other search engines are great places to find reliable transporters. They will also have reviews and provide more information.

Online, you can read both the positive and the negative.

Read reviews on websites like Yelp and Google about classic car shipping companies. You want to make sure that the classic car transporter you choose is reliable, trustworthy, and offers outstanding customer service.

Check out the details of each review - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Look for positive testimonials that highlight strong customer service and a record of on-time delivery. Next, sort negative reviews by keywords such as "hidden costs", late delivery, or damaged. These reviews will continue to show up and can be a red flag. This is a sign that the carrier network they are working with is not good.

Luxury is the best option for classic car shipping perfection.

A broker has a greater advantage than a carrier because of the size of their carrier network. An auto transport broker can only be as good as the carriers that they partner with. The ideal transporter will be a perfectionist in car shipping so that you get the best chance of reliable delivery each time you transport a classic vehicle. They will be able to tell you which enclosed and open carriers are best for your car and which ones to avoid. This will help you save time, money, and frustration during the trial-and-error process. They will ensure that everything is in order, no matter if you choose enclosed transport.

You can also look at what car brands they ship to find a trustworthy transporter. You should look for proof that they have shipped high-end cars such as Porsche or Land Rover.

Next is an important step. This is probably the most important thing you can take away from this article.

Why would you want to pay the lowest price for classic car shipping?

Once you have narrowed down your search to trusted, experienced, and trustworthy auto transport brokers it is time to get a quote to ship your old car.

Although tempting, choosing the lowest price for car shipping is the biggest mistake. There are many horror stories about unreliable, less-than-trustworthy car shipping brokers and carriers who offer low quotes but cut corners and lie to their customers. Online car shipping calculators don't always include gas or insurance surcharges. Sometimes, companies may use outdated equipment which can increase the risk of damage and delays. Make sure that your price includes everything!

The standard is peace of mind.

We recommend that you choose the classic car shipping company to ensure the best chance of safe and timely pickup and delivery. This will be more expensive than a '67 Shelby GT350 but it will give you peace of mind about a reliable, safe pickup and delivery. Sometimes, you can feel the company's personality from just one conversation. Talking to any car shipping agent should give you a feeling that they will go above and beyond to help you and your car. It was nicely summarized by one of our customers:

My dream car was purchased in Georgia, and I needed to find a company that would ship it to California. Move Car was the right choice for me. I felt like they were passionate about customer service. Although they were priced in the middle of the range, do you really need to pay the most for your dream car to be transported? They were able to arrange with the dealer for me, pick up my car that day, and I was able to travel across the country in record speed. This company is the best and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for auto transport. Matt, thank you for everything!

Move Car has been transporting classic vehicles since 2010 and is proud to be the most trusted name for auto transport.

We hope that these tips will help you make an informed decision about who you choose to work with. We wish you all the best!
