As the world’s largest C3 corvette dealer, we do worldwide business on a daily basis. In fact, most of the corvettes we sell are shipped states or countries away rather than picked up by local buyers. Having a corvette shipped is usually a new experience for our buyers, so we are here to share our experience and guide you through the shipping process as smoothly as possible.
Shipping within the U.S.
There are lots of options available for the national or international shipment of your corvette. Within the U.S., you will be looking at transporting your vette on a single car trailer or larger car hauler. The price depends on a few factors such as how many cars the trailer holds, whether it is open or closed, how soon you want the car picked up, and the distance of the trip.
International Shipping and Importing
When shipping overseas, the corvette will be delivered by trailer to the port, where it will be loaded onto a ship to make the trip over the ocean. The location of the port will depend on the vehicle’s final destination and the arrangements made by the shipping company. When the ship reaches your port, the corvette can be transfered to a second trailer for the last part of its journey.
When importing a corvette, it is also important to research your country’s laws concerning moving a classic car through customs, import taxes, and what types of classic cars are allowed to be imported. Usually your shipping company can help you with this, as well as coordinating arrangements at the ports.
You may find and choose any shipping company you like. When asked for suggestions, we refer customers to United Container Line (UCL).
