Enclosed Auto Transport: How Much Does It Cost?

Enclosed auto transport can be for anyone, anywhere. Whether you have a vehicle you drive every day to and from school or work or you have a high-end, luxury, rare or sports vehicle, then enclosed shipment is available for your car. If you’re considering an enclosed vehicle shipment, you probably want to consider the prices that might come along with doing so.

Cost Of Enclosed Auto Transport

It is important to note that open shipment of vehicles is an option that is more affordable. However, it may not provide the additional benefits needed when shipping your vehicle. Depending on what type of benefits you’re looking at getting, enclosed vehicle transport might be the best way to go.

Benefits of Enclosed Transport Include:

  • Protection from the environment
  • Security from vandals or thieves
  • Privacy from those you may not want to see your car
  • Safer shipment as nothing can contact the car during transport
  • Less chance of cosmetic damage during shipment

What Cost to Expect

There are numerous factors that go into shipping a vehicle in an enclosed container. The distance that the vehicle is being shipped is going to be one of the biggest factors associated with the price. Additionally, shipping during the winter months tends to be a bit cheaper than during the summer months.

While shipping to another country, the cost to ship a normal sized four door sedan can run anywhere from $600 to more than $5000. The price may change depending on the type of vehicle that is being shipped, the specifications for shipping and the distance that the vehicle is being shipped.

Shipping overseas is something that is going to cost a lot more in the long run. This is because it will have to be placed within a container on a boat. The shipping company will have to help you clear customs, provide the necessary paperwork and other essentials for shipment. This can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000.

Specific Costs

Specific costs are associated with shipping a vehicle, so it is important to speak directly with the company regarding your personal needs and wants. They can then provide a more individualized amount to help you decide whether this is the vehicle shipment that you’d like to make with your vehicle. No one specific cost can be given to a client until the necessary information has been collected on the shipment.
