I have shipped a car cross country. I made sure it was a enclosed trailer it cost a little bit more but it is worth it. I saw a Shelby the last of June on a regular trailer and it was covered in ice and snow and anything else the road had on it.

1 Take Pictures of the car from every angle

2 Make sure the driver that takes it away gives you a copy of the inspection sheet and make sure it is right cause it is hard to prove different.

3 Empty the glove box and take anything that can disappear out of the car

4 Record the mileage and the amount of gas and keep it with you have the person taken the car sign it if they do not do it themselves.

I would take off the lower air dams so they wont get beat up because some kid drove it onto the truck to fast. Also if you can get a straight though carrier and no switching of trailers would even be better.

Are you military moving or?

Shipping what? Your car? There is a place online that allows you to enter some info about where/when and to where you want the car taken. Then it is posted Lila a driver wanted add and people can e-mail you about the service they offer. You can find everything from large tractor trailers to mom and pop pulling the car behind there truck and can even have someone drive it there for you... I will try to find the website but a google search should help you

I would also program a valet key to give to the driver. You can set speed limiters and stuff like that to keep people from joy rides

Yeah that's my biggest fear is the damage that could happen! It will certainly be enclosed and it will be a direct route no changing cars once it is on it will be that way till I get it. I'm a baseball player so after spring training I'll ship it, I don't want the miles put on it so I would have someone drive it.

So now I have to ask what team or where are you shipping it?

Good Luck

My dad used Reliable Carriers a couple of times to ship cars across country. They are very professional and do a great job. Only problem is that it's a multi car transporter. But we've shipped lowered vettes and such and never had a problem because they have a level lift Gaye like you see in NASCAR. But good luck and you've got a gorgeous car!
