How to transport a classic car

If you’ve got a classic car, you may be proud of the fact that it still runs. However, just because you can doesn’t always mean you should. If, for some reason, you need to transport your classic a long distance, it may be better to get it shipped by auto transport than to drive it to the destination. It’s a delicate process but not too difficult if you know what to do. 


  • Go with enclosed shipping. It may cost a little extra, but it’s well worth having your baby surrounded by walls and a roof the whole trip and be protected from the elements.
  • Take some pictures. Before your classic gets boxed up for transport, take lots of time-stamped pictures of it. This will prove the condition of your car before it is shipped. 
  • Research the company you’re doing business with. This is wise advice for anything. 
  • Have everything prepared for pickup. Have the keys, license, and other paperwork ready. 
  • Give your car a good cleaning first. That way, it makes it easy for the driver to perform an inspection for any pre-existing damage.


  • Have any items in the vehicle? Insurance will not cover them, and most companies will not allow this anyway. 
  • Fill the tank up. It’s unnecessary weight and a safety risk. A quarter tank will be enough to get your baby to the nearest gas station. 
  • Forget the details on your insurance coverage. Please review your classic car’s insurance policy before shipping it anywhere. The people you’re doing the shipping with should be able to explain the insurance options you have.
