What is classic car transport?

Classic car shipping (also referred to as exotic, luxury, expensive, or antique car transport) is an auto transport service designed specially for the owners of valuable vehicles such as exotic, luxury, classic, and sports cars. It’s a premium service that promises extra protection for your vehicle and total peace of mind.

How much experience does SGT Auto Transport have with providing classic car transport?

We have an excellent track record for providing safe, smooth, and secure classic car transport. We only work with the most professional classic car carriers and our compliance department checks each one before we add them to our network. This department is also responsible for checking that they all meet our very high insurance standards,specifically defined for such types of high value vehicles.

What is the safest way to ship a classic car?

The most popular auto transport service is open car transport. It’s affordable, quick, and easy to arrange. There is, however, a downside with this type of auto transport service, and that’s the level of protection provided for the vehicles. It is more than adequate for your average sedan, but owners of more valuable and expensive vehicles prefer enclosed auto transport. Because of the additional protection it provides you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your cherished possession is safe and secure throughout its journey.

How much does classic car transport cost?

The cost of classic car transport services depends on several different factors. Smaller vehicles, for example, are cheaper to transport. Shorter distances also cost less. Other factors include the delivery time frame, condition of the vehicle and time of the year. If you choose enclosed auto transport it costs a little more, by around 30%-40%.

1970 Chevy Corvette Proudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport

We managed to meet his expectations with flying colors.

Classic car transport process step 2

2. We pick up your vehicle

A few hours before your scheduled pick-up time, your assigned carrier will get in touch to confirm the details. They also need to confirm that the pick-up location is safe and legal for large commercial vehicles. If it’s not, don’t worry. You can agree upon an alternative location, such as a wider street nearby, where you work, or in a parking lot, if necessary. They also require confirmation to make sure someone is available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be there, you can nominate a third -party to act on your behalf. Consider asking a neighbor, friend, family member, or work colleague.

Before the carrier loads your vehicle onto the classic car transport trailer, you first have to examine it along with the driver, checking for any existing damage. Make a record of this on the Bill of Lading, before you sign. You’ll be given a copy of this important document that you must keep safe.

Now all the paperwork is complete, you can say goodbye to your precious baby and they will load it very carefully onto the trailer. Even though you know the carrier will treat your car with respect, that might not stop you worrying. For your peace of mind, you can contact the driver at any time during the journey, so you can check on your vehicle’s progress. You’ll also receive regular updates by email, Live Chat, or phone.

Classic car transport process step 3

3. You receive your vehicle

You’ll receive another phone call from your assigned carrier when your classic car is almost home. With a few hours notice, you can make sure you’re available to accept delivery of your car. Don’t worry if that’s not possible, because you can nominate a third-party to accept delivery on your behalf. The only stipulation is that they have to be over 18 years of age. Think about asking a neighbor, friend, relative, work colleague, or acquaintance.

You get another chance to inspect your car when it’s delivered. This is just to make sure everything is in order. Finally, you sign the Bill of Lading to accept delivery of your car. If you opted for the Discounted Cash Price, you now have to pay the balance. You can make payment in cash, cashier’s check, or money order.

Frequently asked questions about classic, luxury & exotic car transport

Everything you need to know about luxury, exotic & classic car transport

We can categorize cars in many different ways. Sometimes the labels we give them might seem like they’re the same, but there are generally very slight differences. Let’s provide a quick and easy explanation for some of the most common terms.

  • Classic: any vehicle aged between 20 and 40 years old.
  • Exotic: this is a vehicle that is extraordinarily distinct, out of the ordinary, or notably different from vehicles normally on the road.
  • Luxury: a luxury vehicle is one that is equipped with better performance capabilities, lavish interiors, and all the latest safety and technology features.
  • Antique: any vehicle of 45 years old is considered antique.
  • Vintage: refers to vehicles that have been built between 1919 and 1930.
  • Sports: the official definition is a low, small, usually 2-passenger car that has been designed for quick response, easy maneuverability, and high-speed driving.
