One of the biggest questions we get here at A-1 Auto Transport from customers is, “What’s the best way to get my car delivered to Calera?” This is a question that can only be answered by you, the customer and to do this you will need to consider the vehicle you own, the level of security you need and the price you can afford within your budget.
Car shipping can be handled with either open carrier or enclosed carrier services for interstate transport within the U.S.
- Open carrier auto transport: This is the economy way to ship a car and while it saves on the wear and tear as well as mileage on a car, it does still expose the vehicle to the elements during shipment. Elements include weather, insects and road debris and even curious people when the carrier must stop to refuel along the way.
Cars need to be operational for open carrier auto transport as they will need to be driven onto either a single level flatbed trailer or a double level auto carrier. Open carriers do not generally offer lift service for inoperable cars and it is important to let the agent know if your car does not run so they can schedule the right carrier with a lift for the car.
- Enclosed carrier auto transport: The best option for shipping collectible cars, expensive cars and sporty cars as well as two and three wheeled vehicles is going to be enclosed transport. Enclosed auto transport can be expensive, but it offers protection for vehicles that just cannot be found with open auto transport options.
Enclosed transport is also available in single level carriers for one or two cars or double level carriers for two or more cars or several motorcycles, ATV’s or other vehicles. The expense of enclosed auto transport can be attributed, in part, to the secure environment inside the carrier as well as the guaranteed pickup and delivery dates that are often available to customers. With open transport, there are no delivery date guarantees since there are so many other vehicles on the carrier.
Other Auto Transport Options
- Train: Shipping by train is an option for those who either live near a train station or will be near one for delivery. If you are not near an active station, you can still book train service but will need to determine how to get the car delivered to the train or picked up when the train arrives. Train shipments are often low cost, but you should book service at least 30 days in advance.
- Airplane: If you have a very expensive Supercar, luxury car or rare collectible that you need to have delivered fast, air shipping may be an option to consider. It is the most expensive way to ship a vehicle and one that is not often used for cars that have lower values since the shipment cost if so hefty.
