What is Classic Car transportation?
Classic Car transportation is basically a car shipping process in which a classic car is transported from one city to another city in the USA. It is basically of two types:
- Enclosed Car Shipping
- Open Car Shipping
We cannot stress it enough to ONLY choose enclosed car shipping for your classic car transportation. Although open car shipping is also safe and secure but enclosed car shipping just adds an added layer of security to your vehicle.

How long does it take?
The number of days to ship your classic car from one state of the USA to another totally depends upon the distance between them. Of course, there are other factors too, i.e., the connectivity between the two states, traffic, etc.
On average you can expect at least four days of shipping time for around 800- 1000 miles of distance. If the distance is more than 2400 miles, then you can easily expect a shipping time of 7-10 days.
Cost of Enclosed Auto transportation depends upon several factors as listed below:
What is the exact distance between the boarding and dropping point of the car?
What type of route will the transport vehicle pass? Are there any excessive traffic jams or road closures? Is the route a direct route?

Is your destination a rural area? Is the pickup point of your vehicle a rural area too? It can boost up your price.
