Now that you are relocating from one city or state to another, will you have to drive all your cars, including the exotic ones to your new home? You do not have to. Instead, you can choose from different options to ship your luxury and exotic cars cross-country.

If you have never done this before, it might be quite a challenge for you. You might find yourself overwhelmed with packing your households and finding the right means and professional movers to ship your luxury and exotic cars.

Well, let us discuss the steps you need to take to ensure the safe transportation of luxury and exotic cars cross-country.

1. Choose Your Car Delivery Method

The first thing you need to do is to choose the method of delivery you want for your luxury and exotic car. It will have an impact on the amount of money you will end up paying for the shipping costs.

You can choose between door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal delivery methods. Even though you might find the door-to-door delivery method expensive, it is the better option considering you will be shipping your luxury and exotic cars, not just any other cars.

If you choose the terminal-to-terminal option, you will personally drive your vehicle to a certain pick-up point for the transportation company. In addition, you will also personally pick up your car from a certain drop-off point. 

2. Choose the Type of Transportation

You have now settled on the best method of delivery for your car. The next step is determining how you will have it transported. You need to find out whether an enclosed or open-air trailer will work better for your car.

The first thing you should do is evaluate the pros and cons of each one of them. In addition, the type of your car will also affect the choice you make here. Since you are shipping a luxury and exotic car, you might need to consider enclosed shipping.

Even though you might find it a bit expensive, your car will be safer and more secure. In addition, you will protect it from external elements such as bad weather, especially if it will be on the road for long hours.

3. Check Professional Movers and Shipping Costs

This is an essential step when shipping luxury and exotic cars. You should ensure that you have chosen the right professional mover if you want your car to get to its destination without any problems.

Do some research online and look at customer reviews to see whether previous customers were satisfied with the services they got. If you find negative reviews, then chances are that you will also not be happy with the services you are likely going to get.

In addition, check the shipping rates of all the professional movers you are considering. The best professional mover will ensure they have all their car shipping rates explained in a way that is easy for you to understand. If you realize any hidden charges, then ditch that mover.

4. Schedule Pickup for Your Luxury and Exotic Car

You need to ensure that everything with regard to the shipping of your luxury and exotic car is working in your favor. From the delivery and transportation methods to the choice of professional movers and shipping costs.

In addition to that, it is important to make things as convenient as possible to avoid issues that might affect the shipping of your car. This is one of the reasons you should schedule pickup for the car as soon as you have completed the steps discussed above.

5. Get Your Luxury and Exotic Car Ready for Shipping

This is the last step before getting your luxury and exotic car shipped. There are a couple of things you have to do, the key among them being cleaning your car. Professional car movers are not allowed to carry your household items along with your car.

Apart from being penalized by the Department of Transportation and passing the bill on to you, you might even add more weight to your car, meaning that your shipping costs will also be high. You should also consider the amount of gas you have in your car.

In addition to cleaning your car, check for any damages. Ensure that you have done a complete checklist before handing over your car. You will use this when the car gets to its destination to check if it is in the same condition it was before.

Luxury and exotic cars are quite expensive and need to be taken care of especially when being shipped cross country. If you follow the steps discussed above, your car will get to its destination without any problems.
