Different Ways to Ship a Car.
- Open Air Transport - This is the most common way to transport a vehicle. It is also known for being the least expensive shipping solution on the market. If you do not mind your vehicle being exposed to the elements or driving conditions, this shipping solution is right for you.
- Enclosed Shipping - This is known for being the most expensive way to ship a car, but it is undoubtedly the safest form of transport. If you have a very valuable car or an antique vehicle, consider this shipping option. Another plus to this shipping solution is that you can ship personal belongings inside the vehicle.
- Door to Door - This method of transport is exactly what it sounds like. Your vehicle will be picked up at your home and delivered directly to its destination. If you live on a narrow street that the car carrier might have a difficult time navigating down, let the shipping company know and discuss loading the vehicle at another location.
- Terminal to Terminal - This form of shipping combined with open air transport is the least expensive way to ship an automobile to date. You will need to arrange for a ride home after you drop the vehicle off at the depot. This will also require you to pick the vehicle up from the depot once it has been delivered.
