Open auto transportation is by far the most common method for auto transportation. Open transport has one major benefit as compared to enclosed transport. Open transport is much more affordable than enclosed transport; however enclosed transport nearly guarantees complete safety and condition. Open car shipping has a few distinct risks, but these risks are very, very rare. These include automobile damage and theft; however, occur less than one percent of the time during a transport. For most average cars, open transport is the best option, as it is safe and reliable.
If you are looking to transport a classic, exotic, or super car, enclosed transport is the solution for you. Your vehicle will be completely enclosed within a trailer, protected from the elements and any other possible threats/dangers. Many auto auctions and high-end car dealers use our enclosed transport services to get their cars from the stage/showroom to the homes of the purchasers. We typically recommend enclosed transport if you want to be completed sure that your vehicle will arrive in the same condition it was picked up in and are willing to pay a higher price to do so. Enclosed transport does come with a steeper price tag; however, if your car does as well, it is important to transport it using the safest of methods.
Many of our potential vehicle transport clients will contact us asking that an automobile be delivered within a small timeframe. With our express transport option, vehicles are picked up within 24-48 hours of scheduling and transported within that tight timeframe to their final destination. This kind of service typically requires dedicated service, so the price is typically much higher than the average transportation service. Express auto transport is typically carried out using an enclosed trailer (due to dedicated service); however, it is also possible that an open trailer is used. These are the two major variables concerning the cost.
