How To Ship Your Eshelman

It is not well known, but Eshelman is one of the oldest motor vehicle manufacturers in the world. Transporting such a vintage vehicle requires the right amount of care and expertise, which is not found in just any car shipping company. Now, a random search for vintage auto shipping will likely produce thousands of hits.

Anyone online can claim to be the best in the car transport industry, and there is no way of truly knowing the truth without first doing some due diligence. Here are some of the signs to look out for when looking to ship a vintage vehicle.


The first thing to look for when choosing a shipping company is the experience. Many companies will claim to offer the best services, but it is only those companies that bring years of experience to the game that know their way around the challenges involved in moving a vintage vehicle long distance. Whether domestic or international shipment, always look for the shipping company that has enough experience specifically dealing with vintage cars.

Shipping Options

Any shipping company can move one’s vehicle from one point to the other, especially when dealing with the typical sedan. However, vintage vehicle shipment requires a little more than the typical machinery, and this applies to both local and international shipment. Look for that company that offers the most in terms of shipment options. For instance, overseas shipment can either happen via freight or air.

Obviously, air shipment is ideal and fast, but it will also likely be the most expensive. Those who cannot handle the prices will be better served by a company that has freight options suitable for a vintage vehicle. A vehicle can either be driven into the lower deck and secured or transported in a trailer. Given the sensitive nature of vintage car shipment, shipping in a container is appropriate.

Eshelman Best Cheap Shipping Company

When it comes to shipping cross country, your typical car shipment company will likely have the open carriers, everyone does. For a vintage vehicle, though, look for the company able to offer other options like the enclosed carrier transportation. Exposing a vehicle to the elements is dangerous especially considering the costs involved in the securing and transportation of a vintage car.

Speaking of options, pickup and delivery options must also be taken into consideration. Typically, there are two types of transportation options, door to door and terminal based pickup and delivery systems. Door to door will mean the vehicle being picked up from its location and delivered to the owner’s doorstep. Terminal based pickup and delivery is when the vehicle is picked up from a company terminal after being delivered for shipment at the terminal from where it was bought.

Vintage collector item vehicles are very fragile and sometimes are not exactly in a state that can allow them to be driven. This means the ideal option would be door-to-door pickup and delivery. Any company that commits itself to a door to door pickup and delivery system shows enough confidence in its abilities to deliver on its promises and should certainly be trusted.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
