At Total Car Shipping, security is our main concern when we transport valuable vehicles from one place to another. These considerations do, however depend some on the method of shipping and equipment being utilized for the job. Here is a guide to the pros and cons of enclosed shipping versus open car carrier transport.
Open car carriers are typically multi-tiered trailers that hold multiple cars easily, but don't offer the protection granted by covered trucks.
In enclosed shipping, your vehicle is secured within a protective barrier, preventing damage from the elements during transport.
At Total Car Shipping, we can advise you on which option to use for your specific auto shipping needs, but the final decisions are up to you. If the vehicle(s) in question are especially rare or valuable, you may want to opt for enclosed shipping due to their difficulty to be replaced.
If you don't have the money, don't worry. The open car shippers that Total Car Shipping works with are experts in their trade, and will take the care that you deserve with your vehicle. Millions of shipments each day are carried out under open carrier conditions, without issue.
