When using an auto transport company, your involvement in the shipping process is minimal. After setting up the details over the phone, you’ll have show up on the pickup day to hand over your car. Our driver will take it to your new home, where you will once again have to take it back.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Santa Clara
Luxury and classic cars can be shipped with a regular carrier usually without problems. However, large carriers that ship many vehicles at a time can be slow to finish the delivery. Depending on the order the cars were loaded in, when one reaches its destination, several others may have to be taken out of the truck to make way. This can strain the cars and even damage them if it’s not done carefully.
To eliminate this situation, you can opt for a smaller enclosed carrier. By requesting a truck for just your vehicle, you will have to pay more, but your car will also be more secure. You’ll receive protection against bad weather, regular updates, and a large insurance policy.
