What is classic car auto transport?

You can choose to transport a classic car economically using our economical open vehicle carrier service. Or, you can go premium and opt for our fully-enclosed car shippers to maximize safety and eliminate common threats while on the road.

For classic car owners, sentimental value is everything. It's typically much greater than the financial value. For them, shipping a car isn't that simple. Their classic car is a treasure of sorts – a work of art. Many owners buy their classics from other car collectors, already restored and in perfect condition.

However, the vast majority of classic car owners spend a lot of time, even years, trying to bring them back to life and their original condition. Classic car restoration usually takes a lot of time. Seeking out the original parts that may be missing, or having pieces custom manufactured for them can be arduous and expensive. Overall, restoring a classic car to like-new condition has typically proven to be a time-consuming and costly investment.

A quality classic car transport service takes a collector’s love for their vehicle into account. Nexus Auto Transport does all this and more, offering premium car moving services tailored to rare and expensive vehicles and their unique needs.

How should you ship your classic car?

Classic car owners rarely drive their cars long distances. They usually opt for professional auto shipping services to move a car. There are several reasons for this. Classic car owners opt for professional classic car shipping services to avoid the risks of long-distance driving. They also choose classic auto shipping to minimize the vehicle's exposure to external hazards such as harsh weather conditions during the car shipping process.

At Nexus Auto Transport, classic auto transport (oversized or otherwise) is one of our specialties. We offer two classic vehicle transport options. The most commonly used and cost-efficient method of vehicle shipping is to use an open car carrier. The other available car shipping option is to ship a classic car in an enclosed car carrier. Enclosed classic car transport prevents your vehicle from being exposed to external threats that may be encountered on the road. While the vehicle shipping cost is a bit more than with an open car shipper, it provides your classic car with maximum protection during its vehicle transportation journey.

Regardless of the selected type of vehicle transport service, classic car shipping requires extraordinary precautions. The vehicle moving process begins when the car is loaded and secured to the truck and ends once it is delivered to the desired car shipping destination.

All of our drivers are specially trained to exercise the utmost diligence and caution when transporting classic automobiles. Nexus Auto Transport's network of vehicle shippers spares no expense. They cut no corners in their quest to deliver you the best classic vehicle shipping experience imaginable.
