Factors to consider when moving your high-end vehicle


If you’re planning a long-distance move and you’ve got a high-end car, you’ve probably thought about hiring a third-party service provider to move it.

While the thought of hitting the open road for a cross-country drive in your luxury car might be appealing, practically speaking, there are several benefits to working with a moving service, including the following:

  • Mileage – Every kilometre you put on your car shortens its lifespan and decreases its resale value.
  • Wear and tear – Canadian weather is famous for creating potholes, and potholes can be deadly to high-end cars, many of which drive low to the ground.
  • Safety – A long drive means putting your valuable investment at risk. A professional service provider can help ensure your car arrives safely and securely.

Finding a service provider to move your luxury or classic car

While the benefits are clear, finding the right service provider can be a challenge. A large number of firms offer vehicle transportation services, but when you’re talking about a six-figure car, you need to be extremely selective.

Look for a service provider that offers the following:

  • Secure facilities – You’ve made a significant investment in your car. Make sure it’s always going to be in a safe, secure facility when it’s not on the road.
  • Enclosed trucks – Your service provider should offer completely enclosed trucks – rather than open car carriers – to protect your car from the elements.
  • Insurance coverage – Complete coverage is essential should the unexpected happen and damage occur during the trip.
