Basics of Auto Transport

There are 2 basic ways of shipping a vehicle. The first way is the standard – by Open Carrier. This is the most common way auto transporters move a vehicle. These are the trucks you see on the highway with a bunch of cars on a trailer with open tops and sides. Typically in the world of shipping vehicles, this is less expensive, but since the vehicles are exposed to the elements, they are at risk to certain types of damage. Debris such as rocks, tires, sand and salt (in the winter months) can do damage to any unprotected vehicles. Also, the weather needs to be considered, snow, sleet and especially hail. To hold these cars in place, a chain is placed on the frame of the car and connected to the trailer. In almost all cases, your car will arrive in the same condition it was picked up in.

The second basic type of Automobile Carrier is Enclosed Auto Transport – Enclosed transport is exactly what it sounds like; your vehicle is placed in a trailer that protects it from the elements and possible road debris. The best Moving carriers use what are called “soft ties” to connect your car to the trailer (rather than chaining it to the frame). Most enclosed Vehicle Movers companies offer first class “white glove” service; they may even put down floor mats to protect your carpets and interior. Be aware though, all this comes with a price, enclosed vehicle shipping can cost you anywhere from 75-100% more than using an open transport carrier.
