What is enclosed Vehicle Shipping?
There are two basic ways to transport a vehicle. The first way is by open transport – This is the most common way to shipping a vehicle. These are the transports you see on the highway with a load of cars on a double decked trailer with open sides. Typically in the world of auto transportation, open carriers are cheaper, but since the vehicles are exposed to the elements, they are at risk to certain types of damage. Debris such as rocks, tires, sand and salt (in the winter months) can do damage to any unprotected vehicles. The weather also needs to be considered, snow, sleet and especially hail. To hold these cars in place a chain is placed on the frame of the car and connected to the trailer. In almost all cases, your car will arrive in the same condition it was picked up in. To prove this point, many car dealerships still take a risk and use open transports to deliver their new cars.
The second type of shipment, is an enclosed transport. Enclosed transports are exactly what it sounds like; your vehicle is placed in a trailer that protects it from the elements. The best enclosed carriers use what are called “soft ties” to connect your car to the trailer (rather than chaining it to the frame). Most enclosed car transport companies offer first class “white glove” service; they may even put down floor mats to protect your carpets and interior. Be aware though, all this comes with a price, enclosed auto transports can cost you anywhere from 75-100% more than an open transport.
Enclosed Carriers are not for everyone…if you have a classic, exotic or high-end luxury car, it may be worth it. Make sure you do some research and check all your options so you can make the most informed decision.
