Shipping Antique Automobiles Door To Door

Any time you need a specialized service in the auto transport industry - and both door to door shipping and moving antique automobiles fall into this category - it’s essential that you find a company with experience and a proven track record.

Most auto shippers can move just about any type of car or small truck in the standard fashion aboard an open air carrier. Door to door shipping, especially when dealing with an antique or classic car, requires special care, as well as the requisite experience to know how to do the job safely and reliably from point to point.

Insurance For Antique Car Transport

Insurance is included in the cost of shipping a vehicle and it’s sufficient to cover most damages. That said, when you’re shipping an antique car, it may make sense in some cases to get additional insurance. This is largely dependent on the value of the vehicle. If you have any concerns about the level of insurance when shipping, make sure to go over your options with the company arranging transport.

It’s also a good idea to contact your auto insurance carrier if you’re considering supplemental insurance. Some policies have an allowance that covers auto transport services.

Preparing An Antique Car For Door To Door Transport

Preparing a car for shipping is a short and easy process with not too much required on the customer side. What is important, however, is making sure to focus on attention to detail when documenting the condition of your car. This goes double for classic or antique cars.

The first steps are to clean the car thoroughly, both inside and out. There should be no loose items in the vehicle and the outside should be clean enough to easily photograph and document its condition. If there are any scratches, dents, or dings on the body of the vehicle, it’s recommended that you document these. This makes it much easier to determine if anything occurred during the transport of the vehicle.

Though non-running cars can still be shipped, it adds to the cost of transport. If possible, you’ll want to make sure the vehicle is in good running condition, has properly inflated tires and adequate fluid levels, as well as no leaks.

Finally, we’ll offer a piece of advice that is often more applicable to antique and classic cars than their more modern counterparts. If there is anything unusual about starting or operating the vehicle, including simple things like opening and closing doors, or a quirk with the alarm system, it should be mentioned (preferably in writing) for both the company and the individual shipper.
