Shipping an Exotic Vehicle Long Distance

Have you been trying to find ways to ship your vehicle across the country? Well, the fact is that shipping your vehicle to a new location is a task that is best left to professionals who have the experience and expertise as well as the proper training to handle this type of responsibility.  This is especially true if you own an exotic vehicle and want to ensure that it arrives at its intended destination in the same condition as when it was loaded on the carrier or trailer.  That is why you can always rely on our team of skilled specialists here at Exotic Car Transport to ensure that your vehicle will be safe and secure every step of the way.

What is an exotic vehicle?

Depending on who you’re speaking to in the auto industry, the term “exotic” has a broad range of meanings.  Unlike standard vehicles, the price point of these vehicles is not something that most individuals have the budget for.  The term can refer to a limited production edition vehicle, one that was manufactured in an unusual way, or one with a very unique appearance.  It may have above average handling and speed capabilities and be intended for an extremely small, targeted audience. 

How do you ship this type of vehicle?

We offer two shipping options for shipping exotic vehicles long-distance – open and enclosed transport.  Although the open transport option is the more cost-effective of the two, we highly recommend the enclosed option for exotic cars.  In most cases, the choice of shipping method is based on the budget of the vehicle owner.  Despite the cheaper price point of the open transport method, the enclosed transport option provides the peace of mind that comes from knowing your prized possession is in capable and competent hands.

What are the advantages of enclosed vehicle transport?

Our professional team knows that your exotic vehicles required a significant investment and therefore, have a significant sentimental value for the owner.  Consequently, hiring the average auto transport service just won’t do.  Every one of our specialists has been thoroughly trained in all facets of long-distance exotic car transport and will ensure that your vehicle makes the trip safely and securely.  Consider the following 5 advantages of enclosed vehicle transport:

  • All potential for damage from roadway debris and harsh weather is eliminated.
  • By clamping your vehicle in place, it cannot move when the trailer is in motion.
  • Enclosed auto trailers provide an added level of protection and security.
  • For added convenience, we will work around your schedule to arrange the pick-up and delivery of your exotic car.
  • Most importantly, your vehicle is protected in a fully enclosed and safe environment.

Keep in mind that there is a downside to enclosed vehicle transport.  First, this method tends to be costlier because of decreased fuel efficiency and the fact that it is more difficult to routinely inspect your vehicle during transit. However, the choice is yours and if it is an expensive vehicle, it is safer in an enclosed container. 

How much will it cost to ship my exotic car long-distance?

We understand that price can be a determining factor when choosing a vehicle transport service to ship your exotic car.  Despite the intense competition in this industry, here are 6 factors that can influence the cost of shipping your vehicle:

  • Door-to-door transport – this added convenience will increase shipping costs as well
  • Enclosed versus open auto transport – while open auto transport is the cheaper option, the added protection and security of an enclosed carrier are worth the additional cost
  • Expedited transport – needing a vehicle picked up and delivered as quickly as possible will add to the cost of shipping as well
  • Fuel prices – spikes in prices cause transportation charges to increase
  • The time of year – since summer is the busiest vehicle shipping season, scheduling your pick-up and delivery well in advance is highly recommended
  • Using a shipping broker or dealing with an auto transport service directly – dealing with an auto transport company directly is more cost effective
