Shipping a car takes a lot of careful research, as there are a few different methods you can use to ship your car. You also need to find the right auto transport company, which takes even more planning and research for auto transport overseas. You wouldn't want to leave your classic American Muscle car behind.

The first thing to know is that the further you ship your car, the more it is going to cost. With an antique Corvette, you'll need to find a company that specializes in shipping vintage and antique cars, and fully prepare your vehicle for transport.
Here are a few tips to remember:
- Have a long and detailed conversation with your antique auto transporter – the company will want to know as much as possible to ensure safe and easy transport for your car. Ask in detail about customs clearance and submit all necessary documents prior to shipping.
- Take everything out of your car prior to shipping such as personal items, GPS navigation systems, phone chargers, etc.
- Don't forget about insurance options. This will be crucial in transporting a one-of-a-kind vintage sports car
- There are two most common shipping methods for overseas: the roll-on and roll-off service (RORO) and the container service. RORO is the cheapest way, where your vehicle is directly driven or rolled onto the ship and decked securely. (Note: no accessories can be shipped using this method, only factory-fitted ones). For the container service, you'll generally have a choice between a 20-foot or 40-foot container and it allows you to transport your car with accessories.
Following the proper precautions, your beloved Stingray should arrive in your new destination without any trouble.
