Shipping a 1970’s or Older Street Rod Car or Truck
by Angela Caito
In previous years, finding a hard to locate early 1970’s or older car or truck
was something that was extremely difficult, if not altogether impossible.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we are now able to locate these
cars, quite often, with a few quick clicks of the mouse. Now it isn’t so much
finding the hotrods that is difficult, but being able to relocate them back to
your home or office location in the tidewater area can be the tricky part.
Depending on the overall driving condition of the car or truck you want to
purchase, you could possibly opt to fly or take a train to the physical
location and pick it up and drive it to the area, but that can be very time
consuming as well as costly in the long run. You could even take your own
truck and trailer and haul it back on your own. This too can not only be
expensive but it will take much needed time that you may need for other
things like work, family or relaxing in your garage while tinkering on other
hot rods you may have sitting around for future shows.
The best way, by far, to get your new car or truck moved to your home is
going to be hiring a professional auto transporter to handle all of the tough
work for you. A company like A-1 Auto Transport Inc. will be able to handle
all aspects of shipping the car including making suggestions on the best
type of carrier to choose for the vehicle, the time frame that it will take to
move the car and the total price you will need to pay for transport.
If the car or truck you plan on buying, which is often the case when you buy
a hotrod from the early 70’s, a professional transporter will be able to move
it safely and get it to you so you can take the time to get it up and running
smoothly before you take it to show or start driving it around town. You will
also be able to use GPS tracking services to see where the vehicle is at all
times from the moment it is picked up until it is dropped off to you here in
Virginia or to another location you need to have it shipped.
When you have a new hot rod, chances are that you are anxious to get it
home where you can start showing it off to others. Try to be patient so you
can make sure the car is handled with care and be aware that it takes time
to have a car shipped. On average, it can take several days to ship a car
across a few states and up to 10 days or longer to have a car transported.
