What is Classic Car Transport?

Classic Cars often require special attention for auto transporters, and we have the means and knowledge to get the job done the right way. There are a couple of different ways to transport vehicles, and each involves a different sort of transport vessel. Amongst these distinctions are Open and Enclosed Carriers. The open carrier is by far the most common sort of shipping vessel on the road. When you see tractor trailers hauling cars on the freeway, they do so via open carriers. The enclosed carrier is less common and harder to recognize. If you have a classic or exotic vehicle, you’ll definitely want to ship it on an enclosed trailer to ensure its safety.

Do I need Classic Car Shipping?

Transporting vehicles via enclosed trailer is a much better means of shipping for these sorts of vehicles for several reasons. First, enclosed trailers will protect your vehicle against the elements. When you ship via open trailer, your vehicle will be exposed to weather and dust. This is not a particularly big concern for most vehicles, however, classic and exotic vehicles are more costly to repair or detail, so to avoid the risk of this happening, it is best to ship them in an enclosed trailer. Secondly, the tie-down method is much less strenuous on the chassis of exotic vehicles than that of an open trailer.
