Auto transport services we provide
- RV and Motorhome shipping: There are some great camping sites just before you get to the foot of Lookout Mountain, most of which are RV accessible. RVs are highly advantageous during outdoor camping. The kitchenette provides you with everything you need to prepare a decent meal, while the mini-washroom saves you from doing your business out in the woods. However, if you come from a far-off place, you could incur heavy costs driving your RV all the way to the camp site just outside Bear Creek. You can instead have it shipped for you at affordable prices, to any address in Bear Creek. We are experienced in shipping different types of RVs including tear drop trailers, fifth wheels as well as class A, B and C motorhomes.
- Open carrier services: Open car carriers are simply long haul trucks that come fitted with flatbed racks. The racks could be single or double decked. Cars are loaded onto the flat bed and secured in place using straps. They are then shipped off the way they are. Lack of an enveloping structure slightly exposes the vehicle to the external environment, but the vehicle is completely safe from damage. The open structure of these carriers allow for multiple cars to be shipped at one go, a huge advantage to multi-car shippers.
- Enclosed carrier services: This is the alternative to open carriers. An intermodal container envelopes the cars as they are transported. The container provides extra protection from external elements that may damage the vehicle; elements like pebbles, weather conditions and twigs. Enclosed carriers also offer privacy, making them the best option for shipping high-end flashy vehicles.
Why Are Enclosed Carriers More Expensive to Book?
This is a question often asked by customers who book enclosed auto transport, and there are several reasons for the extra cost for this type of transport.
- Fewer Enclosed carriers available.
- Carrier companies prefer open carriers, so they can haul more cars.
- Insurance rates are higher due to the value of the cars inside.
- Guaranteed Delivery Dates may be available with enclosed service.
- Extra care is given to vehicles hauled inside enclosed carriers.
- Climate controlled and/or padded interiors may be available.
Overall, when you ship a highly expensive car, an enclosed car carrier will offer a protective environment not available with any other mode of transport and customers essentially get ‘white glove care” for their vehicle from the time it is picked up until it has been delivered.
