Using Auburn Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Auburn car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Inspect your vehicle carefully ahead of shipping: Look for dents and other cosmetic issues before shipping your vehicle to ensure that you know the difference between existing issues and damage that may have been incurred during the auto shipping process.
- Look for a company that offers quality service as well as affordability: You shouldn’t have to compromise one or other just to ship your vehicle. When searching for an Auburn auto transport company, opt for one that offers both.
- Request documentation from the shipping company: From insurance to proof of US DOT registration, ask to see documentation from your auto shipping company before signing on the dotted line to ensure that the company in question is legit.
How Cars Are Shipped to Auburn
Open Auto Carrier- This standard auto transport service offers an affordable way to ship a car across the nation. With no wear and tear from driving hundreds, or thousands of miles to the destination, open modes of transport are the most common way that cars are shipped. The vehicle is loaded onto the carrier by driving it up a short ramp and securing it in place where it will be driven to the delivery location.
With open transport, vehicles are fully exposed to the elements just like they are when they are driven. If you own a luxury car, classic or other rare or valuable vehicle, you may want to consider enclosed services rather than open.
Enclosed Auto Carrier- Enclosed auto transport services are for those vehicles that need a very secure environment due to value or condition. Cars like classic roadsters and hotrods, race cars, high end luxury cars and vintage collectibles are often shipped with enclosed auto transport to prevent contact with foul weather, vandals and road debris.
There are fewer enclosed transport carriers available which means you may be able to have a guaranteed delivery date when you book service but be prepared to pay more for the service. Enclosed transport can cost more than open auto transport because the carrier hauls fewer cars than an open carrier, insurance premiums may be higher because of the car value and the extra care that is provides by drivers due to the condition of the cars they haul.
Train- When you want to find cheap auto transport, trains are a great place to start. Depending on how much time you have in advance to schedule and how far you may be from a station, trains can offer open and enclosed services for a lower cost than interstate transport. The only drawbacks to train service are that you need to schedule one to two months in advance and you may need to schedule interstate transport to get the car to or from a station if there is not one local to you.
Plane-Air freight is an incredibly fast way to ship a car anywhere in the world. It is also a very pricey mode of transport and is usually only scheduled for very expensive (Think; McLaren or Bugatti) motor vehicles that must be extremely protected during shipment and with an overall value that is far too high to chance transport on the ground. It is not recommended for cars that are driven daily unless you don’t mind paying the high shipping rates. It is however, the quickest way to have a car delivered fast.

University Of Auburn - Auburn University was established in 1856 as the East Alabama Male College, 20 years after the city of Auburn's founding. In 1872, under the Morrill Act, the school became the first land-grant college in the South and was renamed the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama. In 1899 the name again was changed, to the Alabama Polytechnic Institute. Finally, in 1960 the name of the school was changed to Auburn University, a title more in keeping with its location and expressing the varied academic programs and larger curriculum of a major university.
