What to Know About Shipping a Chevy Corvette

Chevrolet Corvette

The Chevrolet Corvette is a symbol of freedom for many Americans, particularly those who own them. The Corvette has been in production since 1953 and is one of Chevy's most iconic brands, having seen seven generations throughout its lifetime. The 2014 Corvette marks the start of the seventh generation of Corvettes, and this year Chevy has decided to go in a new direction with the Corvette, trying hard to make it more appealing to the younger generation. It retains its overall sleek design and slender frame, though a new small-block engine capable of over 450 horsepower make it a fairly beastly machine. In another attempt to lure younger buyers into purchasing a Corvette, Chevy resurrected the "Stingray" moniker, which had been retired since 1976.

You Can Trust Us When Shipping Your Corvette

The Corvette, regardless of which generation or year you're shipping, is a car that likely demands an enclosed container. Not all Corvettes are worth the same, but because of the name of the car and its inherent value a Corvette is a worthy candidate of enclosed shipping. Not everyone wants to ship enclosed, and if you don't have the budget for it that's not a problem; your Corvette will likely be just fine on an open carrier if you were to ship it that way, though you can expect to see some dirt and dust on it and maybe a buff or two that needs to be worked out with some elbow grease. Damage that prompts serious repairs via a mechanic or repair shop are quite rare in the auto shipping industry, but many Corvette owners don't want to see the dust and dirt get on their car, which is why they typically prefer the more expensive enclosed option.

Great article! I would definitely want a shipping company to be careful with my Corvette, and it sounds like you would be.
