Don’t gamble with shipping a classic
Long-distance buying is the modern way to get the classic car of your dreams, but once you’ve scored that amazing vehicle, you’ll need transportation.
While there are many auto shipping options out there, it makes sense to choose one that has a strong track record of safe and smooth classic car transport. So once you’ve decided to invest in that hard-to-find vintage vehicle your next step should be doing some research.
At Ship-Quotes, we have a large carrier network covering the entire U.S., and we pride ourselves on our quality track record. We know how much one special car – or a fleet of special cars – can mean to our customers, which is why we take a personalized approach that includes in-house customer service, around-the-clock monitoring, and insurance coverage.
Your choice matters
The cost to ship a car should only be one factor in your decision. As you research your options, you will quickly discover there are many auto transport companies vying for your business, but not quite so many that specialize in classic car transport. And among these, you will encounter plenty of companies that are so focused on shipping as many cars as possible that they forget about the needs of the customer. A classic car is an investment, but more importantly it is your investment. We believe that owners deserve the same quality of top-notch care as their cars. Our representatives will support you through every step of the shipping process so you can rest assured that the special vehicle in your life arrives at its destination safely and on time.

Frequently asked questions
How much does it cost to transport a classic car?
Transporting a classic car gets the same quality service and fair market price as every other car. But, if you want to ship your car in an enclosed car transporter (as most people with luxury or classic cars do), you will have to pay a little bit extra for that.
Should I ship my classic car using enclosed auto transport?
That depends. As a guide, here are some questions you can ask yourself to determine if you need enclosed auto transport. If you answered “yes” to any of them, then you might want to consider enclosed auto transport over open auto transport.
1. Do you consider your car an investment?
2. Are you concerned about snow or cold weather?
3. Are you concerned about dust, dirt, pollution, or other debris your car might be subject to over the course of transport?
4. Is your car old and/or have a custom or unique paint job?
5. Do you want extra protection against theft?
Does Ship-Quotes have insurance?
While your shipment is transported on land: an Inland Marine Cargo Insurance policy of up to $100,000 is provided by the motor carrier that transports your vehicle, subject to some exclusions and limitations.
While your shipment is transported overseas: all ocean shipments are subject to the terms and conditions of the oceanic transporter. The oceanic transporter assumes limited liability for damages so it’s imperative that you review their Terms & Conditions and arrange for additional insurance prior to shipping if deemed necessary.
If I don’t choose enclosed transport, can you guarantee top load with an open carrier?
Yes, we can. This option is a good way to provide extra protection to your vehicle.
