You’ve always wanted one. That model. That year. That color. Your dream car’s bought and paid for and you want to bring her home. But who should you trust with something you searched for years to find? For classic car owners, it may feel like finding safe car transport is the hardest part about the whole process! Well, it doesn’t have to be.
We understand Car Enthusiasts’ auto transport needs and values
Maybe buying a classic car was more impulsive than you’ve been in a while -- but now that you “pulled the trigger” you don’t want any more anxiety in transporting your classic car on the upper deck of the trailer to your home. You want to be sure it’s placed only in the hands of an experienced transport company. Our team’s been working with cars for 30+ years. After waiting so long for the perfect weekend or getaway car, you don’t take chances with an unknown auto transport company.
Or maybe you have the opposite situation. Perhaps you rebuilt an older car like a ‘60s Stingray from the ground up, but it’s time to let it go. Now you're in need of vehicle transportation but not sure who to turn to when it comes to getting it to auction safely. Vintage car transport is one of our specialties. Or you looked everywhere for that ’71 Plymouth Barracuda, and when one came on the market you snatched it up. But now you need muscle car transport.
Just sold a classic car online? Don’t worry – our auto transport company handles everything. Everything. Once your classic car shipment is booked, the pressure’s off. We work with your buyer to make all the arrangements, for pickup at your convenience and drop-off at theirs.
We’ve done this thousands of times. The paperwork – the Bill of Lading, to be exact – is carefully completed just right. As if you’re buying a car online, making sure it’s precisely how it should be can save you from paying additional sales tax or registration fees. It’s also the proper documentation regarding your car’s condition and other details related to the transport process.
How long does it take to transport a classic car?
Classic vehicle transport takes between 1-6 calendar days from the date a car is picked up to when it’s dropped off. A driver usually covers about 500 miles per day. The first available pickup date for classic, muscle or vintage car shipping is typically 2-7 business days after an order is placed, and express vintage car transport is usually available within 24-72 hours.
Once you put us “behind the wheel” – metaphorically speaking only, as no one will drive your car except on or off the truck – we find just the right driver for your classic auto transport. Is it a Lotus from the ‘60s? If you need antique car shipping or even exotic car transport, especially in the case of a rare model, we strongly recommend using enclosed trailers. Not only do the trailers have walls and a roof give your car more protection from the elements, drivers haul fewer cars at a time. An enclosed trailer fits just 2-6 vehicles, so there’s more individual attention available for every car on there, all of which tend to be luxury or higher-end models.
Are you a Harley fan? Vintage and classic motorcycle transport is something we do all the time as well. Open trailers are perfectly fine for the majority of vehicle transport, mostly under $70,000 in value. But when it’s a 1925 BMW R42, the extra few dollars for enclosed shipping are worth the additional peace of mind.
How much does it cost to ship a classic car ?
Classic car transport costs ~$1.40 per mile for 1-500 miles. So, a 350 mile trip would cost $490. The longer the distance, the lower the price: moving a classic ~1000 miles drops it to $1 a mile, or $1000. Coast-to-coast classic car shipping can be as little as $.60 cents per mile. Shipping quotes can vary based on your vehicle size, whether you choose enclosed car transport, express shipping, an open trailer, or seasonal demand – as well as classic car transport reviews. That’s because classic car shipping companies with higher ratings usually cost a bit more.
Now, to minimize costs and maximize convenience, we have a great Quick Quote system, where you can see results on your screen instantly – on just about every make, model and year, including some very rare editions. We'll even take care of any cars with modifications including low ground clearance. And we don’t ask for your name or phone number unless you book an order. You’ll never get a pesky follow-up call – just a handy email with the quotes in writing, so if you’re comparing prices, you can choose to proceed later. Then if you like what you saw, and we think you will – great! We stand by the classic car transport quote we offer for a full 14 days: that’s 2x the industry average.
It’s your “baby” and you want it handled with care through a competent carrier. Still, you don’t have to pay champagne prices to get the best classic car transport. With our years of experience and reputation we are among the top auto-transport companies in the industry across the contiguous United States. Because of our large network of car enthusiasts and specialty carriers, we can offer both great value and great service – so you don’t have to choose, and your classic car transport cost isn’t higher than it has to be.
