How Cars Are Shipped on the Interstate
- Open Car Carrier- A simple mode of transport where single cars can ship on a single level carrier and multiple cars can ship on a double level carrier. Your car will be driven onto the carrier and needs to be operational so it can be driven off and on to load and unload other cars along the route. For inoperable cars you must schedule a carrier with a lift and this must be handled in advance to get the right carrier booked. Open car carriers offer an economical way to ship a car and they are ideal for cars that are frequently driven.
- Enclosed Car Carrier-For those expensive luxury cars, motorcycles or ATV’s as well as classic, collectible and sports cars, enclosed car carriers offer a secure environment, often climate controlled or padded interiors and special care for the vehicles during shipment. Enclosed shipping services will cost more than open carrier services but due to the protective environment, the cost is well worth it to those who need special care taken to prevent damage to the car.
Why Enclosed Car Carriers Cost More
When you have a very expensive luxury car or a delicate vintage collectible, a race car that needs to stay in top condition or a classic car that you take to shows, you need those cars to stay in prime condition from the time they are picked up until they have been delivered.
Enclosed car carriers are more expensive to build than open carriers because they take more material and because quite often, the materials used to insulate or pad the interior can be expensive. Due to the expense of materials alone, carrier companies prefer to buy open carriers that are less expensive and can haul more cars at one time.
Other reasons that enclosed car carrier transport can cost more is because the cars inside carry a higher value and this makes the insurance cost higher than it would be on a car driven daily.
Drivers are more apt to take longer to load the car and will frequently check inside the trailer to walk around the car to inspect the surface area during transport. This special care will cost more than when a car is loaded onto an open carrier and hauled with other cars.
