An absolute classic! Or should we call this a muscle car? What else could you possibly need. This beauty was shipped from the heart of Chicago and delivered to a restoration shop in East Bronx. The customer required no more than 3 cars on the trailer so we arranged this as promised.
1970 Chevy CorvetteProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport
For this shipment, we were hired through uShip. This customer had a very firm timeframe for pick-up and delivery. The customer required a pick-up within 24 hours because he wanted to be there at the time of pick-up to see the car get loaded and as well as complete the inspection report himself. We managed to meet his expectations with flying colors.
