Tips for Purchasing a Classic Car out of State

Buying an Out of State Classic Car

Anyone who has shopped for a classic car knows that they can be difficult to find. Classic car enthusiasts often have very specific things in mind when looking for the perfect one to park in their driveway. Seemingly small details such as engine size, manual vs. automatic transmission, or coupe vs. sedan, are taken very seriously by classic car aficionados, and for good reason. When buying the car of your dreams, the last thing you want to do is make sacrifices. Because your dream car might not be found in your town, county, or even state, you might have to broaden your search to include dealerships in other states who regularly ship classic cars throughout the country. At Vanguard Motor Sales, 90% of our sales are shipped out of state. For that reason, we consider ourselves to be experts in shipping cars around the country and even around the globe. 

 

When purchasing any car, it’s always best to see the car in person. Because of the limited availability of many classic cars, it can be hard to see the car in person, especially when they are so desirable. Someone else is likely to snag it before you can make travel arrangements.

 

When searching for antique cars and trucks, do not limit your options to places within your area. As you branch out and cast a wider net, you are more likely to discover just what you have been dreaming about. If the car of your dreams is located in another state, try to learn as much as possible about the dealership. If they specialize in this type of sale, you don’t have much to worry about. However, if their website does not mention experience in safely transporting classic cars from their showrooms to their customers’ driveways irrespective of distance, perhaps you should be leery.

 

If you don’t live in Michigan and are considering buying a classic car out of state, putting your trust in Vanguard Motor Sales is the best decision you can make. We are experts in safely delivering classic cars to our customers wherever they maybe. Contact us today to learn more about the ways we can deliver the car of your dreams from our showroom to your driveway!
