Exotic Car Shipping Rates
The rates for shipping services cannot be determined until the owner of the exotic car needing to be shipped calls in and provides some details to the transport company. It is recommended that anyone searching the Internet for reliable exotic car shipping services gathers the phone numbers of at least a few potential transporters. After some Internet research, contact a few of the most reliable car shipping companies you can find. Gather quotes and compare the services offered.
To find out how much you’ll have to pay to ship your exotic car, you’ll need to know the vehicle’s make, model and engine size. You’ll also have to choose shipping services. Otherwise, you’ll receive a quote for the cheapest shipping method, open air transport. This is a secure transport method that remains favorable among many individuals, auto manufacturers, and dealerships. It does leave the car open to outside elements during its delivery process which isn’t suggested for luxury cars or any high profile vehicles. Enclosed transport methods are normally recommended to anyone shipping a vehicle of higher value.
Common Shipping Services Listed and Explained
- Open Air Shipping - the least costly method of transport. This is an open air service best for shorter shipping distances and the delivery of multiple vehicles. If you ship your car with this method, make sure it is free of all clutter. Only leave the floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire inside.
- Enclosed Shipping - this service offers more security than any other services. Your vehicle is protected from the outdoors behind the four walls of the shipping container. You can also ship other goods using this service. You can pack up the car and the space left inside the container.
- Door to Door Delivery - if you’re looking for the most convenient shipping service to ease some of your responsibility during the transport, get door to door delivery. The transporter will pick up and drop off the exotic car at the exact locations requested.
