However reputable your choice of shipping company, it’s still worth taking a few precautions when transporting your classic car, just in case.
Here are five of our top tips to help you make sure everything runs smoothly, the next time your car needs to be shipped anywhere.
1. Check Your Insurance
Just in case anything should go wrong, it’s wise to check that your car will be insured – and that might mean making sure your own insurance covers certain mishaps.
The company you choose to transport your car may also have specialist insurance cover in place, so it is worth asking to make sure you know what your level of coverage will be in total.
