Shipping to Tombstone
Shipping a car can be a daunting time even for those that have shipped numerous vehicles over the years. When you start contacting transporters to move the car for you, be sure to have the weight and height of the vehicle as they will need this information to schedule the right carrier. You also need to know what type of carrier you need to ship the car.
Types of Carriers
- Open Carrier - An open carrier is generally the fastest as well as the least expensive carrier to use for auto transport. This mode of transport is open on all sides and on top and up to ten or more vehicles can be hauled at one time. While this type of carrier is suitable for all types of motor vehicles, owners of expensive luxury cars or classic cars may want to request their vehicles be top loaded when using open carriers so the car will not be underneath other vehicles where fluids may possibly leak on them and where the car will not chance to scrape into another vehicle during shipment. Open carriers will expose the vehicle to the elements along the way but they are safe and prevent the car from racking up unnecessary mileage and extra maintenance fees.
- Enclosed Carrier - An enclosed carrier is perfect for classics, luxury, sports and collectible cars. Enclosed carriers are sealed on all sides and some even come with climate controlled or padded interiors to maintain stability at all times during shipment. Most enclosed carriers, however, are not climate controlled or padded but they are much safer than open carriers when shipping an extremely expensive vehicle. Enclosed carriers are generally up to 50% more costly than open carriers but the expense is trivial when you have a valuable automobile that needs a secure environment during shipment.
