Shipping to Athens

When you are making your plans to have a car shipped to Athens, you should know ahead of time which type of transport you want to use to ship the vehicle. You can use the following information to help determine which type of transport suits your vehicle best:

  • Open Carrier Transport: Open carrier transport is the most common type of auto shipping in the world. You have most likely seen many open carriers on the interstates traveling across the U.S. They are large, most often double-decker trucks, that can carry anywhere from one to 12 vehicles at one time. Open carriers are excellent for vehicles that are driven at least once or twice, or more often, weekly. They can carry cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles and are generally the lowest cost to ship vehicles. If you have a large SUV or truck, you may need to pay a fee for having an oversized vehicle as these larger vehicles will usually take up more space on the carrier and the company will not be able to haul as many cars as they would if all vehicles were standard sized. Cars are exposed to the elements, but not more than if they were being driven.
  • Enclosed Carrier Transport: Owners of highly expensive classics, exotics, luxury and sports cars usually prefer to use enclosed carrier transport when shipping their valuable investments. Enclosed carriers are secure, often climate controlled and can safely transport the most delicate of vehicles. An enclosed carrier will cost on average between 30% and 60% more than an open carrier will cost, but when you have a very expensive vehicle, the benefits of a secure shipping environment will greatly outweigh the cost of the carrier. Another benefit of shipping with enclosed transport is that you can have a guaranteed shipping date.
  • Railway: Moving a car on a train may seem a little outdated to some, but in reality, shipping a car by train can be an economical way to have one relocated. The biggest consideration you will need to make when checking into train shipment is verifying the distance between Athens and the nearest railway station where you can pick the car up as well as the distance to the station to have one loaded for shipment to Athens. Trains offer both open and enclosed shipping options and you can even arrange to ship personal belongings. Shipments by train should be booked one to two months in advance to ensure room on the train.
  • Air Freight: Nothing ships faster than an airplane and if you have a luxury car, rare or exotic car that has a hefty price tag, this may be the ideal way for you to have your car moved. Keep in mind that while cars can ship quickly with air freight, it is also the most expensive way to ship and is not often used for lower value vehicles.

Why Does Enclosed Auto Transport Cost More?

Athens, AL Car Transport Near Me

A question that many vehicle owners want to know when scheduling shipment for their car is, why does enclosed auto transport coast more? There are a few reasons for this and they include that enclosed carriers are expensive to build which also makes them more expensive to purchase than open carriers.

Many drivers and trucking companies want to spend less for equipment that can carry more vehicles than more for an enclosed trailer that carriers fewer cars. The more cars a driver can haul, the bigger profit for the carrier company. This means there are fewer enclosed carriers on the roadways.

With fewer enclosed carriers, it is easier for a customer to receive a guaranteed shipping and delivery date, and when a date can be guaranteed, it can often increase the rate.

Another reason enclosed auto transport can cost more is that the cars hauled inside are often very valuable, which means the insurance coverage must be a higher amount. Higher insurance rates will add extra cost to a shipment.

While enclosed auto transport can cost more than open auto transport, we guarantee that our rates here at A-1 Auto Transport are reasonable and that we can have your vehicle shipped quickly and safely with the best enclosed shipping options nationwide.
