We are dependable and ensure that your vehicle is transported in a secure manner to the final location. If you own a luxury model car or other high-end car, shipping by air is a great way to ship, but for standard cars that are driven daily, you may want to check rates ahead of time because sir shipments are the most expensive.
- Open Carrier Car Shipping- This is the way most cars are shipped today via the interstate. It’s an economical way to ship a car and is suitable for cars driven daily, sedans, coupes and trucks. With single level and double level carriers available, drivers can haul anywhere from one to nine or more cars at one time.
- Enclosed Carrier Car Shipping- For added protection and security during shipment, enclosed carriers are ideal for classic cars, luxury, sports and antique or collectible cars and with a sealed environment can keep damaging elements including weather, road debris and curious onlookers away from the car. The rates for enclosed carrier car shipping can be double the cost of open carrier car shipping, but the added benefits are worth the overall cost.
Alternatively, you can also ship via the railway inside a train car. Shipment options for trains include both open and enclosed and trains are generally a low-cost way to ship. You do need to book this service in advance at least two weeks to one month ahead of time to ensure a spot will be available for your car as dealerships and manufacturers often use trains to move large fleets of new or used cars.
Why Enclosed Service Costs More
Enclosed car carrier service has a higher price tag than open modes of transport for a few reasons. These include:
- Insurance costs are higher due to the overall expense of the value of the cars that are relocated inside the enclosed carrier.
- Vehicle owners get a personalized experience with a driver who handles the car with white glove treatment to ensure it is safe throughout shipment.
- Customers can often get a guaranteed delivery date for auto transport because with fewer cars to carry on the truck, delivery times are easier to calculate.
- Enclosed carriers cost more to build and buy than open carriers and in todays market drivers want to haul as many cars as possible to make money quickly. Enclosed carriers cut down the number of cars hauled, therefore drivers can make up for that by charging higher rates for service.
