Shipping Services for Automobiles.
- Open Air Shipping - this method consists of putting the automobile on top of a car hauler. While this is a cheaper method of shipping, it does leave the car open to all weather and road conditions during its transport.
- Enclosed Shipping - this method of transport is safer. The car is placed within an enclosed container.
- Container Shipping - this is the safest form of transport and it consists of the car being safeguarded inside a large cargo container. Other items can also ship with the vehicle inside the container.
- Terminal to Terminal - the automobile will need to be dropped off at a transport terminal in Chicago and retrieved at another one in LA. This is cheaper than door to door but can become inconvenient if the terminal is not near you.
- Door to Door - the car is retrieved directly from wherever it is at and dropped off to the specific LA address listed.
