What are the Risks of Shipping Your Car to Bay Minette?
There's no such thing as fully safe so to ask a 100% guarantee is not sensible. What auto transport services do, however, is to minimize the risk of transport. This can be done through several factors:
- Having a modern fleet, which lessens incidents of breakdown
- Experience in the field, which allows the company to foresee any future trouble
- Professional drivers who will treat each car they transport as their own
You need to know that there are two ways they move your car—through an open trailer and an enclosed trailer. The first option is generally cheaper, and that's for a reason. For instance, your car will be exposed to the elements, scratches, and vandalism. The second option is safer but more expensive.
Also, make sure to check how the auto service company locks your car to the trailer's platform. If the driver doesn't know what he's doing, it can seriously damage your vehicle especially if the chains are tied too tight to the axle. If it's too loose, meanwhile, your car might hit other vehicles in the trailer. That's why you need experienced service providers because securing your car, while balancing the load so the trailer won't tilt, is an art by itself.
But if in the very unlikely event that your car will be damaged during transport, this is where the cargo insurance will come in.

Open or Enclosed?
When you have a car shipped to Bay Minette you will need to choose from open or enclosed auto transport service for your car.
- Open Car Transport: Open car transport is the predominant way that cars are shipped nationwide. Open car carriers are designed as single level or double decker and can hold between one and ten or more vehicles at a time. This is the cheapest way to relocate a car when it comes to professional auto transport and is used by tens of thousands of vehicle owners daily worldwide. Vehicles are loaded by being driven onto the open carrier, so if your car is inoperable you need to let the company know when you book service, so they can schedule a carrier with a lift. Standard auto transport carriers do not come equipped with a lift. Cars are exposed to weather, insects and animals and road debris when transported on an open carrier.
- Enclosed Car Transport: Enclosed car transport is ideal for classic, exotic and luxury cars as well as vehicles that need a protective environment to keep them safe during transport. Enclosed car carriers are built as single level and double level to carry one or more vehicles at the same time. Customers can also load personal items inside the car during shipment if it is cleared with the company ahead of time. Hauling a car inside an enclosed carrier will cost more than an open car carrier, but the secure environment is worth the additional cost for those who have valuable or fragile vehicles that need the ultimate protection.
Other Ways to Ship a Car
Trains and airplanes are also ideal ways to ship a car and they are both used daily for shipments globally. Shipping on a train is a low-cost way to ship and offers open and enclosed solutions for transport while air freight on a plane offers a fast shipping time and an enclosed mode of transport. Air freight is usually reserved for very expensive vehicles as it is an expensive mode of transport.
