Your classic car is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s a lifestyle—it’s your baby.
You spend hours upon hours hand-washing, drying, waxing, detailing, and caring for your vintage vehicle. You pay careful attention to every product and towel that touches your beloved baby.
You invest a lot of time and money into the care and maintenance of your classic car, and you wouldn’t want an inexperienced tow company transporting your prized possession.
Today we’re talking about classic car towing—why you might need it and how to find a tow company that will take good care of your classic car towing needs.
Classic Car Breakdown
One of the great joys of owning a classic car is driving it. As much as you might love to show off the good looks of your vintage baby, driving it brings its own great joys.
If your classic car breaks down while out on your Sunday drive—it is vintage after all, anything could happen—you will need a tow truck to get it safely to your garage or mechanic.
It’s good to have a tow truck company you can trust who you know will be available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day in case your classic car breaks down. No matter the time or day, you want a dependable tow truck company who will be there for you to get your car safely to its destination.
Miles and Miles and Miles…
Classic car enthusiasts know that buying a classic car with low miles is a wise investment. You want to protect your investment by keeping those miles as low as possible while still enjoying your antique automobile.
If you need to get your vintage vehicle to another destination—whether that’s a car show or another town, having a classic car transportation service on call is a smart move.
Having your classic car towed to its destination will save you a ton of miles over the years, helping the value of your car stay high.A tow company with experienced drivers who know how to take good care of your classic vehicle is the only way to go for your long distance towing needs.
Steer Clear of Damage
Things happen to cars on the road every single day. No matter how careful vintage car owners are with their vehicles, it will never make them exempt from being susceptible to damage when traveling on roads and highways.
You invest an incredible amount of time into the care of your classic car, so exposing it to unnecessary wear and tear on the road should be avoided if possible. It’s one thing to take your favorite classic car out for a joy ride, but traveling longer distances may put your car at risk for being damaged.
The paint could easily be chipped and damaged from debris flying up from the road. Rocks, pebbles, random metal...all sorts of materials end up on our roadways that could damage your paint job.
Another place vintage cars can easily be damaged is while they are parked in public parking lots. The last thing any classic car owner wants is someone hitting their beautiful vehicle with their door, scratching the paint, or worse —denting the door.
Windshield glass is not cheap for classic cars. The more your classic car is exposed to roads and highways, the greater the risk is for the possibility of your windshield to get chipped or cracked. How many times have you had a truck driving in front of you and suddenly some debris comes flying out of the back of their truck and chips your windshield?
Look, we’re not saying don’t drive your car. That’s the whole point of owning a classic car (or any car for that matter). What we are saying is don’t drive your classic car more than you have, or want to.
Towing transportation for classic vehicles is a safer way to move your classic vehicle from one location to the next location.
Hire The Right Tow Company
When looking for the right tow truck company to transport your vintage vehicle, you want to look for a company that has a top of the line fleet of trucks. You don’t want old rickety trucks transporting your expensive classic car.
You’ll want modern tow trucks with the latest technology to keep your car safe while being towed.
It’s also important to find a tow truck company that has plenty of flatbed tow trucks available. Hook and chain tow trucks will pose a far greater risk of damage to your vehicle than a flatbed tow truck. Hook and chain trucks are infamous for putting unnecessary pressure on the vehicle being towed or the chains scratching and denting cars. That’s the last thing you want for your favorite ride!
Find a tow truck service with professional, trained tow truck drivers. You don’t want just anyone towing your classic car. You need experienced professionals that you can trust.
