The Best Transport Methods For Your Classic Car

Finding the money to purchase and restore your stunning classic car is not the only challenge facing you.  Have you thought about how you are going to get it home? This can be a tricky and expensive task.  It is vital that you chose the right transport method to get your beauty home without damage.

There are quite a few transport options available to you, so below is a list of options that you can choose from:


As long as the transport provider has the right insurance and trade plates this can be a cheap and popular option. However, as it is driven on the open road there is always the chance of damage on the journey.  Also, this option will only be available if your vehicle is road worthy.

Open Trailer

This will be more expensive than a driven service. This will be a good option if you don’t want a stranger driving your brand new car and of course will allow for more flexibility in what you can have transported.


Multiple vehicle trailers

Large car transporters that are transporting multiple vehicles can save you money as the cost is shared however, they may not always offer you a door to door personal service.  You may have to arrange to pick it up at a convenient location.

Make sure you research the transport firms in serious depth before choosing one.  Ask friends and family members if they have any recommendations.  You can also ask car lovers on online forums for some recommendations.

The company transporting your valuable car needs to be experienced and have the right insurance and level of professionalism.  Always use a company who has experience of working with classic cars.  As these companies will have the correct tools and knowledge to safely transport your classic car.

Don’t choose a company solely off their price.  Get a few quotes first.  You can get free quotes from Shiply.  Bear in mind that most trustworthy providers will have similar prices.  So if you are offered a quote that seems too good to be true, it is!

This decision is a big one so take your time and do your research and ensure your prized procession is in safe and experienced hands.
