After you have selected a specific vehicle, Vintage Car Connections will take care of the rest. We’ll contact the seller on your behalf and inspect the vehicle locally or even beyond. You’ll receive our detailed evaluation of the vehicle, complete with photos, videos, and a CARFAX report (for vehicles manufactured in 1981 or later).
We’ll also negotiate the best possible purchase price and reserve the vehicle on your behalf. Once the vehicle is purchased, we’ll deliver it to CFR Classic headquarters in Paramount, CA, pay for the ocean freight fees and optional insurance, and provide you with a condition report and check-in photos. After receiving the balance due (including our service fee) via wire transfer from your bank, Vintage Car Connections will advise the shipping agent to release the cargo for loading.
You’ll receive an update from CFR Classic once your cargo has departed from the Long Beach port, along with a copy of the Bill of Lading and tracking information, as well as an estimated time of arrival at the destination port and the contact information for the unloading agent. The transit time from the port of Los Angeles to Bremerhaven or Rotterdam is approximately 4 weeks on water (please allow an additional 10-14 days for loading and clearance).
Please note that the buyer is responsible for all destination fees, such as unloading, terminal handling charges, customs clearance, licensing, and road legal adjustments (lights, tires, electrical, etc).

In addition, we offer thorough vehicle inspections for customers who want to ensure that what they’re buying is not junk or misrepresented by the seller. To request a vehicle inspection, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the vehicle you’re interested in and contact information for the seller. We’ll contact the seller and arrange an appointment to view the vehicle after the fee has been satisfied. Each inspection is customized based on your needs, but all come with a set of basic attributes. When you request a vehicle inspection, you automatically get…
- a. 100 Photos of the vehicle.
- b. Detailed description of the vehicles condition.
- c. Video(s) of the vehicle running / driving.
