FLA to NY Shipping Options
Open - An open car carrier is the most common type and usually hauls between 4 to 12 vehicles at once. These are the trucks you may have seen on the highway carrying a load of cars to a dealership. Since less loading and unloading the vehicles is easier with open carrier, and the fact that they carry multiple vehicles, it’s the most affordable way to ship.
Enclosed - An enclosed carrier is designed to transport fewer cars-anywhere from one to four. Loading and unloading is more intensive since the vehicle is completely enclosed for the duration of the shipment, offering a greater level of protection and discretion when transporting a vehicle.
Door-to-door - Standard car shipping entails retrieving your vehicle from a local terminal, but you can also request delivery right to your door, or a specific location. Door-to-door auto transport is a premium service and does come with a higher price tag.
