As you may have discovered, buying a car at an auction can yield some real gems.
But how do you get it home without breaking the bank, in good shape, and before you’ve forgotten what the car looks like?
People tend to overlook car shipping in the excitement of finding the car they want at an auction. , but it’s an important factor. In the worst-case scenario shipping can turn out to be costly and troublesome.
Of course you can always fly to the location of the auctioned car and drive it back home yourself, but this presents its own problems.
- Cost of travel?
- Will you need a companion?
- Will the car be registered, licensed and insured?
It would be much better, you may find yourself thinking, if the car just showed up at your door.
