Peace of mind. That is what it comes down to – feeling like you’re protected. Not to sound like an insurance commercial (sortedcorty.com is not affiliated with any insurance company) but protecting your property is just common sense. When planning to ship your Cortina to the US there are a number of questions that will come to mind. What does cargo insurance cover? Cargo Insurance covers loss and/or damage of cargo while it is in transit between the points of origin and final destination. The transportation modes of the goods cargo insurance covers are by sea, air, and land.

There is a significant amount of effort that goes into tracking down your next project – granted that effort, the hunt, is a cherished part of the experience. Once the target has been identified, transporting that project from its seemingly random location on the planet to your own workshop can take significant effort as well. There is no reason this effort cannot be rewarding or at least tolerable. Choosing a partner in this phase of acquisition is important because your choice can mean the difference between frustration and smooth sailing (pun intended).
Choosing the wrong company could result in hugely unexpected expenses, long delays, or even failure to receive your car at all. Mary James from Pacific Tycoon, a major player in the container rental and investment industry, has written a guest post on Universal Cargo’s blog that provides some great tips on choosing the best company to ship your car. It’s a great place to start your adventure!
Perhaps it all comes down to risk tolerance. Crossing the ocean – one can imagine, as an automobile – sitting on the deck with other cargo cinched down with chains. Alternatively, a large, strong, steel container offers protection from most of the ocean’s elements outside a bloody disaster. Heck containers can make a trendy home. Is it possible something could be thrown and damage your as yet delivered new jewel, exposed, on the deck? Certainly. Likely? Who knows – that’s why there is insurance.

Of course, since the lovely Cortina was a product of Ford of Britain, finding one on this side of the pond is not impossible but rather difficult. Cortinas that have already been imported from the UK (or the few sold here) are probably already in the enthusiast zone and as such may command a premium.
