Why do we love classic cars so much?

Why do we love classic cars so much?

Classic cars are special mechanical “creatures,” with whom we often form a special bond. They remind us of the good old times when life was simpler.

I can still remember our old Lada that was surely doing the job of moving us from one location to another but compared to my new car today, to me, the Lada does not imply a simpler life at all. Sure this is a matter of personal preference. So, let’s talk about the love for old cars (classics) and what makes us keep them and ship them whenever we relocate.

How can one car unite a family?

When I was a child, our Lada was a child too. We grew up together, and we changed together. The similarities followed almost simultaneously. I began taking more time to get ready to go out, and the Lada would take her time to start as well. I changed my hair colors and she … well began changing “skin” colors and shades as well.  And eventually, I couldn’t recall what its original color was – white? Or was it “champagne”? Or something grayish? So, the point is life happened to both of us, and the changes were irreversible.

Although, one thing was different. At some point, I started caring more for my safety and my family’s well-being while the Lada couldn’t really find a way to do it. The age matters, I thought. Despite the care my father provided, he couldn’t make our Lada the car it was 20 years ago. The whole family refused to believe it though and we kept moving.

One summer, we were all packed and headed for the anticipated summer family trip. One hour away from home, while we were driving on the outer banks of a river, an unexpected cracking noise drove us off the road and into the river’s shallows. The rim had detached. Then and there we realized it was time to replace the old Lada with a more reliable new automobile.

How do classic cars and old cars compare to each other?

This is a story of an old car that has served its time. Today, if you love classic cars and you own, one you do everything possible to preserve it. This includes not driving it on a highway, but rather only on local roads. Although some classic cars can handle winter roads and snow pretty well, I’d stick to driving my vintage beauty in the summer months and some limited number of miles a year in general.

Classic car owners usually get special insurance for their vehicles and use the enclosed classic car shipping service to move them from one show to another. Naturally, owners of such automobiles like to show them off, and going to car shows is completely understandable.

I would show off our family Lada now, only if I knew it would mean so much in the years to come. This leads me to the only possible thought – that we have to take care not only of the people but also the things we love. We have to do our best to preserve the most important relationships in our life, whether it is with a person or a car.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
