Transporting Your Classic Car with Your Trailer

Transporting Your Classic Car with Your Trailer

Transporting classic cars is one of the most common uses for your trailers if you are a classic car owner. 

However, there are certain aspects you should consider in order to..

  • Minimize wear and tear on your car
  • Minimize travel damage
  • Maximize your classic car’s longevity
  • Maximize your trailer’s longevity

Let’s dive into this topic. 

Purchase the Appropriate Trailer

If you know you need your trailer for the express purpose of transporting your classic car, it’s probably best to buy one tailored to that need rather than to try to modify something that already exists. Classic cars require certain protective elements that might be challenging to have installed, or to build yourself. If you aren’t in the market for a brand new trailer, there are a number of suitable used trailers that may even have been used for the exact purpose you need. The point is, if you are shopping around, consider a wide range of options and seek out wise guidance. 

Drain the Tank on Your Classic Car

This is an important tip that lets you be confident nothing bad will happen to your trailer. When you are about to transport your classic car, siphon the gas out. You can drive your classic car around to make sure that you only have to siphon a little bit out. (By the way, even if you choose to use a shipping company instead of a trailer, this is a basic prerequisite they all expect.) Go ahead and make sure to do this before any long transport.
