enclosed auto transportWho doesn’t like classic cars? There are so many out there and they do such a great job of representing what we now know as a bygone era. Do you remember the days when cars were nothing but enormous, inefficient gas guzzlers? It’s almost as if car makers didn’t understand aerodynamics and fuel efficiency, making them perhaps the biggest destructive force on the ecology in the last fifty years, but you know what? They were pretty. It’s our opinion that while cars have definitely moved forward and changed for the better, there is still nothing quite as amazing as a classic car, and it is definitely something that you should consider adding to your collection.

Seriously, can today’s cars really match that slick, shiny exterior that you see on a 1957 Chevy? Can the modern Cavalier really stand up to the simplicity of the Corvair? In case you’re scrambling for an answer, it’s ‘no’. Now with that being said, finding the best enclosed auto transport for a restoration project definitely presents you with some challenges that you’ll want to meet. If you purchase a restoration car a fair distance away from your home, it will be important for you to make sure it gets to the final destination completely unscathed. This includes ensuring that it does not become scratched or dented during the transport. What does this mean to you exactly? It means choosing an enclosed transport company that really, truly has your best interest at heart. Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as difficult as you might think.

Choosing the Right Enclosed Auto Transport Company

There are a few very important aspects that you should be paying attention to if you are looking for a good enclosed auto transport company to get your vehicle from A to B, and those will be the following:

  • Experience – How long have they been doing this? What kind of experience do they have when it comes to moving cars? Remember, you’re not talking about a run of the mill automobile, you’re talking about a classic car! No matter what condition it’s in, you need it to stay in that condition for the duration of the trip; damage to a classic car can be devastating, especially if there is no way to buy replacement parts.
  • Knowledge – Are knowledge and experience the same thing? Not in this case. You want a company that is familiar with the laws of the road in all the territories and states that they will be driving across. The last thing you want to experience is a delay based on road laws, so make sure you’re choosing the right driver. Secondly, it helps to choose a company that is familiar with classic cars and will be able to properly secure your vehicle so that it does not shift or become otherwise damaged during the transport.

There are many other things to account for but these two are some of the largest concerns that you’re going to have when you’re in the process of moving your classic vehicle. Remember, while it might be a restoration project, you don’t want to incur any additional expenses when you get to the other side.

Inspection Before Transport

Door to Door TransportBefore you proceed with the enclosed trailer transport you will be tasked with watching the pre-loading inspection. This entails checking over your vehicle to ensure that absolutely nothing is wrong with it. For example, are there any scratches present? Is there any visible damage? All of these things should definitely be noted before the loading process is completed and It will help significantly with determining whether or not the vehicle reached its destination intact.

As always, you should make sure to prepare your vehicle properly for transport and this means disabling anti-theft devices along with removing any valuables. In addition to that, try to ensure that you have fresh antifreeze in the vehicle to make certain that it is ready for increasingly changing climates.

Make sure you classic car restoration project gets to its new home, whether it’s your house or a repair shop by using the right enclosed auto transport company for the job.


Reviews from Our Customers

“My car has arrived! The driver delivered about 4:00 pm this afternoon. Considering I called you about this auto transport move on Friday morning and it is now delivered over 500 miles away and it is only Sunday, this was an amazingly quick move. I have purchased several cars online, but I have never had auto shipping experience that was this fast and affordable. Thanks for making this move a great experience. I will call you on all future moves.” – Roy
"We used Door to Door to move our mini-van from PA to TX. I selected Door to Door after a few weeks of online research and contact with over 15 different car transport companies. I eliminated every company with poor reviews and poor BBB ratings. Door to Door met my initial criteria and I was pleased with my phone conversations with JR. They assigned a driver who was courteous, professional and just plain nice. We felt very comfortable with the driver and knew he would deliver the van on-time and without issue. We were very pleased overall and would not hesitate to use Door to Door again when we need car shipping in the future." - Jennifer
"Our vehicle transport experience with Door To Door Auto Transport was very positive. The couple that actually transported the car were very friendly and kept in touch with us so that we knew exactly when the car would be picked up. If I ever need a vehicle shipping company again, I will call Door To Door Auto Transport." – Shari
"I used Door To Door Auto Transport simply because of their good reviews. I was very nervous to transport my car but I did not have time to deliver my daughter’s car to her. This was my first experience shipping a vehicle and I was impressed! They picked the car up and delivered it earlier than I planned! They picked the car up on Thursday and they delivered it at 1:00a.m. Sunday instead of Monday during working hours. We did not expect this and it turned out to be good for us. The transport overall was very fast. Lola was very good and pleasant. The price was just right." – MyLe
"Linda was very nice and genuine and Door to Door did what they said they would do. The transactions were quick and easy and the driver actually arrived much earlier than I expected. Auto shipping across the country is expensive, so regardless of price (which this was one of the cheaper ones I found), if you want the job done well, go with Door to Door!" – Reggie
