International car shipping services have been at the very core of our business for thirty years, and we have handled countless classic and one-of-a-kind units for exhibitions, car shows, fairs, and, even more often, for the simple desire of our customers to have their shiny darlings by their side, no matter how many miles they had to travel to be there.

But this is not the whole picture – there are plenty of marvelous old cars stored away all over the world, particularly in Europe, only waiting to find a new, caring owner to restore them to their original splendor and ride them like someone else used to do years, often entire decades before (classic car for sale in Europe, not to mention that they can be frequently purchased for a song or a little more than that).

While many worldwide car shipping companies can provide assistance when it comes to shiping regular vehicles to or from another country, the number of freight forwarders that can deal with vintage and/or custom cars is not that big, due to the challenges that the transportation of these generally extremely delicate units poses. Not least, it is not uncommon for classic cars to have their own peculiar story, which often requires some good investigative skills to make sure all the documents are in order before even attempting to ship these units overseas. This is even more true of cars being imported into the United States: there are very specific requirements that must be met in order to successfully import a classic car into the USA for good.
