Auto Transport services offered in Brookside
- Enclosed shipping: We use fully enclosed trailers to shield vehicles from strong winds, the heat, snowstorms, dust, debris and other external risks. The trucks have special features that protect the vehicle from shifting and bumping throughout the trip. Enclosed auto transport carriers are available in single and double decker and can carry one car, or they can carry up to four or more depending on the size of the trailer. Enclosed auto transport is suitable for classic cars, exotics, luxury and other collectible cars and expensive vehicles. It is also great for ATV’s, motorcycles and other two and three-wheeled vehicles.
- Open-air shipping: Open-air shipping can happen using a single level flatbed truck or double level multi-car trailers. A flatbed truck can only haul 1-2 vehicles in one trip, which is quite expensive for long hauls. Multi-car carriers can pack up to 12 vehicles in one shipment, depending on the size of the vehicles. It is one of the best options that you can use when shipping cars to or from Brookside at a minimal cost. One of the biggest appeals to open air car shipping is the price. This is the cheapest mode of interstate auto transport and is the way that most vehicles are shipped today.
Why is enclosed auto transport more expensive?
A question that many customers want to know it, “Why does it cost more to ship a car with enclosed transport than with open transport?’ There are several reasons for this.
- Enclosed carrier auto transport often offers a guaranteed delivery date.
- Since cars are sealed inside, the shipment conditions are much safer for cars.
- Since expensive luxury cars and rare collectibles usually ship with enclosed transport services, the insurance rates may be higher which will increase the overall cost.

While we offer excellent interstate auto transport to and from Brookside, we also offer secure international shipping services for our customers who need to ship a little farther. Moving overseas from Brookside? We’ve got you covered, and we can ship to more than 140 countries worldwide.
- RoRo shipping:RoRo stands for roll-on/roll-off, which explains how we drive vehicles on and off the international shipping vessel. It is the cheapest international shipping option. We will use lift-on/lift-off equipment for inoperable vehicles at an extra charge.
- Container shipping: Shipping containers protect your vehicle from seaside storms and potential bumping and scratching while in transit. We have 40FT containers that can transport 2-4 cars at once, cutting down the shipping costs. An exclusive 20FT container can fit your car and household items when you are moving outside the country.
- Vehicle towing: We have an operational interstate towing service that is available round the clock.
