Transporting Your Classic

If you have decided to buy a classic, or need to move your veteran motor for sporting purposes, you will need to investigate classic car transportation. You may have invested in a classic, beautiful, non running and not MOT’s classic which you can’t drive yourself, or you may not want road damage on your perfect specimen – either way, you will need to look at ways to move the car properly. Bearing in mind that to be towed, the car in question will need to be either on a rigid towbar to place it in the trailer category, or be MOT’d and insured as any other vehicle if you want to use a rope, transporting your car is not always easy.

There is of course also the option of further distance transportation. You may want to drive your classic on a road trip through Europe but avoid the ferry, or you may be one of a growing number of owners who regularly travel to exhibit your motor at one of the many international prestige motorshows or participate in track events. In this case, of course you want the car to arrive in tip top condition, so your best bet is most likely a professional transport organization. Choose a company who have maximum appropriate insurance cover, and are experienced in the type of transportation or freight you are looking for. Feel free to ask your chosen company if they have covered this type of vehicle before, what care and precautions they take, and what sort of relevant experience they have. Obviously those who have the technology may charge slightly more, but modern, well maintained lorries and containers are clearly going to be a safer way of transporting your car. There is now technology on the market which means that your vehicle can be moved in a moisture and dust free environment, ensuring maximum safety. Whether you have bought a chassis on Ebay, a camper van in the States, an old ice cream van in Spain or a horse box in the Shetlands, choose a firm who you can rely on.
