Race Car Transport Service

Published by Joe Webster.

Race Car Transport Service

Chances are, as the owner of a race car, you do not ever want your vehicle to be out on the open road, even if it is street-legal. You want to keep it off the elements and inclement weather it may encounter on the journey. So what do you do when tasked with getting your race car from one area to the other, especially to events, races, and sports? The answer is actually simple, you will need to enlist the help of a race car transport service or an auto transport company.

Although the idea is simple enough, the actual effort that goes into making these plans is slightly more complicated, not to mention expensive. However, if you heed the following warnings and use the ideas as a basic jumping off point to get the process started, you will be able to have your race car transported safely, affordably, and efficiently in no time at all.

Start your research early.

As soon as you find out you will need transport for your race car, begin doing research. If you wait until the last minute, you may find yourself overpaying and making rash decisions which will most likely not work in your favor. Auto transport companies are a dime a dozen, but a reputable race car transport service that will provide the needed protection for your asset is much harder to come by. Your best bet is to get a referral from someone in the racing industry who has had good luck with a particular race car shipping company. If this is not possible, use the Internet as your guide to search for companies shipping race cars and vehicles, but make sure you allow yourself adequate time to thoroughly vet your options before settling on the service you decide to use.

Race Car Transport Service - Factors, links, model, and transport type

Compare quotes to get the best deal.

It is important to note that the most expensive company may not provide the best service, and conversely, the cheapest quote may not be the most unreliable. The majority of transport companies work through brokers, which allow a mark-up in order to ensure profit, but most likely, the actual transport drivers will receive the same cut regardless. Your best bet is to ensure that all the quotes are providing you with the same transport package, whether it be the open carrier (trailer) or closed container, door-to-door delivery, and comparable levels of insurance. You can use online quote calculator on the websites of shipping companies to have an idea of rates before requesting quotes from them. It's also important to beware of companies that require huge amounts in deposit before they can lift a finger.

Purchase more insurance if needed.

Although all transport companies require a mandated level of insurance coverage to be kept at all times, depending on the value of your vehicle, you may need to upgrade that option. Although damages in transit are rare, you would want to be fully covered if the unthinkable occurs. This will also help give you peace of mind during the shipping process knowing you are financially secure no matter what happens.

Prepare your vehicle.

Once you have settled on a race car transport service and determined any additional insurance needs, you will need to prepare your vehicle for pick-up. Most companies require you drain all fluids to lower the overall weight of your car and make it less of a safety risk during shipping. You will also want to remove any aftermarket additions or customizations that could fall off or otherwise be damaged. Finally, make sure you inspect the vehicle thoroughly (take pictures if needed) to protect yourself against superficial cosmetic damage that could possibly occur due to driver negligence. In nearly all cases, this is not a common threat, but when dealing with a high-value vehicle such as a race car, you can never be too careful when entrusting it into another’s possession. Do all you can to protect your items from theft or damage.

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.
