nless you request otherwise, your vehicle will be shipped using an open trailer. While this method is generally safe, it does mean your car will be exposed to the elements and highway conditions during the transport process. If you’re worried about your car being damaged on an open carrier, there is another option. You can ship your car in an enclosed trailer, but be prepared to pay a little more.
For many car owners, it’s worth the extra money to protect their car during shipping. This type of transport is especially popular with owners of:
- Vintage cars
- Collectible vehicles
- High-end sports cars
- Luxury vehicles
- Other motorized possessions such as motorcycles, ATVs and boats
If you’ve invested a lot of money either purchasing or restoring a car, it makes sense that you would want to take every precaution possible to protect it from damage.
