Why You Should Carry Your Car In A Trailer

There isn’t a secret that having a classic car means you’ll want to show it off from time to time. While you could drive it to different car shows, it’s a good idea to carry it on a trailer instead for several reasons. 

Prevent High Mileage

Probably the biggest benefit of carrying your car on a trailer is the prevention of high mileage. A part of preserving a classic car is reducing the amount of miles you put on it so it will last longer. When carried on a trailer, you aren’t adding to that mileage and wearing down the value of the car. This allows you to maintain the value of your classic car for a much longer time. 

Protect Tires

While some carry their classic cars on dollies, a trailer will protect the tires on your classic car. It’s not only stopping the mileage build-up, but there isn’t any wear and tear on the tires as there would be with a pull behind the dolly. In addition to the tires, you’re also reducing damage to the undercarriage because the car isn’t directly on the highway and can’t be damaged by rocks and debris on the road. 

Weight Management

Some classic cars and vehicles are pretty heavy because of the material they’re made of. Trying to carry a classic car with a dolly could put significant strain on your modern vehicle. If you pull it with a trailer, you can easily manage the weight of the vehicle and get to your destination a lot safer than with a dolly.
