How To Ship Your Hulme

The Hulme has always been an iconic sports car, and even as newer versions continue to be churned out of the New Zealand manufacturer’s assembly line, owning one today is a huge privilege. The thing with such sports cars is that they even though the idea of hitting the open road with them when moving long distance might be attractive, perhaps a better idea could be to have a shipping company transport it.

Even then, only the best in the business should be allowed near such a valuable one of a kind vehicle. Here are some important tips when looking for a suitable car shipping company.

How much does it cost?

No single question carriers as much weight in the auto shipping process than this. First, everyone is always looking for an affordable car shipping company. However, even though cheaply is desirable, the cheapest is not always the best. Companies that offer unusually low rates are likely to do so only to attract customers. One will end up paying more than they planned in the beginning. Another price related issue is the quote. Any company confident enough in the quality of their services will not be afraid to give quotes. However, the integrity of the company can be tested by the nature of the quotes they give. Are they inclusive of everything, or are there hidden costs.

Another cost related issue is the payment mode and process. Avoid those companies that require cash up front. Instead go for those companies that offer their clients reliable payment options like payment through credit cards, bank transfers and so on. Also be careful with companies that require an initial deposit. While deposits are an indication of commitment, be careful when giving out deposits. Confirm that the company is reliable first.

The longer the company has stayed in the business, the more likely it will be that the services they offer are reliable. The car shipping industry is not an easy one to survive in. if you find a company that has been in business for long, then you likely will have found a company that understands what it takes to ship cars long distance, both to and from domestic and overseas locations. However, if you have a car that will require specialized care, like an expensive sports car or vintage classic, then it might be prudent to find a company with experience shipping those specific types of cars. It might be difficult to find a company that specializes in the types of car shipping you want though.


Not many realize it, but the client lists of car shipping companies have a lot to offer. Client lists are perhaps the biggest indicators of company reliability. It is a confirmation that the signs shown from the initial investigation of the company pushing you in the right direction. Go for the company with high profile current or past clients, like big dealerships or respected collectors.

The car shipping industry has many horror stories of individuals who have had their vehicles lost or arriving damaged. It is important, therefore, to choose the most reliable company for a shipping job.
