Using O’Fallon Vehicle Transport Companies
Weather - If you’re shipping a car during the winter months, be aware that using an open air carrier will expose your vehicle to the elements. Bad weather can also cause delays in the transport process since it lowers the speed at which the drivers can safely operate. It’s important to consider the weather not just where you’re shipping a car to and from, but the states it will travel through while being hauled. If you’re having a car shipped north or east from Missouri during the winter, cold weather is to be expected. Requesting an enclosed auto carrier (see next tip), which fully protects the vehicle, is one way to guard against any damages from the weather.

Enclosed Transport - While the majority of car shipping is done using an open air carrier, an enclosed carrier is a great way to ensure that your vehicle is fully protected every step of the way. With your car fully enclosed, you can rest easy knowing that bad weather won’t affect the condition of your vehicle. Enclosed car carriers tend to perform well in bad weather; since they usually only haul one care at a time, they are smaller and easier to maneuver. Having your car shipped in an enclosed carrier also offers a degree of privacy that some car owners may find appealing, particularly if you’re shipping an exotic, luxury or vintage automobile.
Door-to-door Shipping - Another premium service that goes hand-in-hand with enclosed car transport is door-to-door vehicle delivery. (You can still request door-to-door service with an open air carrier, but there are sometimes limits because of access issues.) Since enclosed carriers usually only carry one or a couple cars, they are easier to navigate in smaller spaces and residential areas. The other delivery option is shipping to a terminal, where the customer then picks up the car. Most delivery terminals are situated in or around major cities, though some companies have their own facilities in cities scattered across the U.S. In the case of O’Fallon, St. Louis is an easy nearby choice to find a delivery terminal or short term storage for your car.
