Using Altoona Auto Transport Services
- Enclosed Or Open Air - Enclosed and open air carriers are options that are offered by most vehicle transport companies. The main difference is that enclosed carriers offer more protection during hauling, tend to cost a little more, and can ship vehicles individually. Open air car shipping is more economical, but the vehicle gets exposed to outdoor conditions during transport.
- Terminal Or Door-to-door - Door-to-door vehicle shipping is the ultimate in convenience but, like enclosed transport, is usually a premium service (which doesn’t always mean it costs more). Terminal auto transport essentially means the vehicle is delivered to a nearby shipping or storage terminal. The terminals are usually in major cities, but some companies have more storage and pick up terminals than others.
- Storage - Terminal shipping can be ideal if you need short or long term storage after having your car, truck or motorcycle shipped. The availability of storage facilities vary by company, but most offer or can arrange secure storage of your vehicle upon request.
