Shipping Expensive Cars

Cars come in all sizes, colors, and options. They also come in various prices. Exotic Car Transport understands that. You wouldn’t ship a glass vase without some sort of protection with it. So why would you ship your expensive vehicle with anything other than the best options available?

What Counts As An Expensive Car?

There is a lot of controversy about what can be classified as an expensive car. Breaking that down even further is the disagreement over what counts as exotic and what counts as a luxury car. In terms of “expensive,” exotic and luxury cars are going to fall into this category.

Exotic Car Identifiers

The top of the food chain of expensive cars is the exotic branch of vehicles. The following characteristics often identify these:

  • A costly price tag-one that the general population can’t afford to buy
  • Unique high-performance capabilities
  • Design that makes them recognizable on a city street
  • Quality manufacturing
  • Performance first mindset, especially with size and shape
  • Fast

Common brands you will find in the category are:

  • Aston Martin
  • Bugatti
  • Lamborghini
  • Lotus
  • Ferrari
  • Alfa Romero

Luxury Car Identifiers

Any car make holds the potential to reach luxury status, but most of them do not. For a car to be considered a luxury type, at one point in time, the price tag had to be at least $30,000. Now, we are more conscious that a luxury vehicle is one that offers “luxury” features standard.

For example, economy priced vehicles only offer so many things standard when you buy them. Certain trim upgrades can be purchased, but they aren’t standard. Some vehicles come with things like heated steering wheels, leather, surround sound, and entertainment systems standard that push them into the luxury category.

Typical luxury makes include:

  • BMW
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • Infiniti
  • Jaguar
  • Rolls Royce
  • And more

It doesn’t matter if your car is a McLaren and costs over a million dollars or a Mercedez-Benz, Exotic Car Transport offers services that keep your expensive vehicle safe while in transit.

Enclosed Shipment Method

The best option for shipping an expensive car is by utilizing Exotic Car Transports enclosed shipment trailers. Enclosed shipment trailers offer a variety of added features that you cannot get when you choose an economy shipping method. Although it is a little more expensive to transport via an enclosed trailer, it is worth it when handling your valuable investment.

Protection from the Outside World

Enclosed shipping trailers offer extra protection from the outside world. This protection preserves your car so that it returns to you in the same condition it was picked up in. Weather is probably one of the most significant variables in the car transport industry. This is especially true on shipments that are going from one side of the country to another.

Damage from hail, tree branches, road debris, and gravel are all eliminated when choosing enclosed shipment from Exotic Car Transport. Our trailers are also an extra measure of safety to thwart off thieves who may think that there is something valuable inside your car, or even worse, try to steal the whole thing.

Protection on the Inside

Besides offering up superior protection on the outside with our hard-sided trailers, Exotic Car Transport also provides quality inside the shipping trailer to exceed your expectations.

  • Your car stays in place during transport.
    • Over-the-tire soft-tie downs offer the stability of keeping your vehicle in place, but gentle enough to use the suspension of the car for a smoother ride.
  • Liftgates and drop decks
    • Enclosed shipping trailers offer hydraulic liftgates that are specifically designed for lower profiled cars, which is the majority of the exotic and luxury car population.
    • Drop decks allow for vehicles of various sizes and shapes to be shipped comfortably and safely.
  • Interior perks
    • Tarped decks reduce the risk of fluids leaking on your vehicle during transport.
    • Exotic Car Transport’s enclosed trailers offer the most inside space available in the shipping industry.

All of the enclosed trailers that we offer ride on an air-suspension, which means your vehicle will have the smoothest ride from point A to point B. There is no unnecessary strain on your exotic or luxury car during transport.

Being Cost-Effective

Enclosed transport trailers are a more expensive option when shipping a vehicle, but they offer the most considerable amount of amenities for your vehicle. Before you get a quote, make sure that you have all of the information that you need for the most accurate shipping quote.

Getting Your Quote

We need to know what the make, model, and year is of the car you want to ship. This helps us determine the size of the vehicle and the weight. Size can help us determine if your vehicle will fit on another shipment, which can help save money.

Where and when do you need your shipment? Dates have the potential to affect your price. If you want door-to-door shipping, knowing the exact addresses will help with an accurate estimate. It may also open your shipping up to other options that can save you additional money.

Terminal shipping is a cheaper option, but does not compromise the safety of your vehicle. The utilization of terminal shipping options are especially helpful if you are not in a hurry or need expedited service. You drop your car off at a terminal facility and then pick it up in the largest city terminal in the same area you need it delivered to.

The Choice is Yours

If you already know how you want your vehicle shipped, tell us, and we can accommodate that quote for you. If you don’t know, we are more than happy to walk you through the process. We are with you from the very first phone call. We want you to have a positive experience shipping your expensive car where it needs to go.
