The Different Types of Transport Services Available

Whether you’re selling an automobile to someone who’s several states away or are trying to move all of your possessions from point A to point B, you might very well benefit from using vehicle transport services. These services enable you to ship a car over thousands of miles, allowing you to move the car without racking up miles on it. 

There are numerous different types of transport services available, each of which offers a different set of benefits and downsides. Learn more about these different services by reading below! 

Open Vehicle Transport

Open vehicle transport is a service in which your vehicle is loaded onto the back of a truck amongst a variety of other vehicles. Your vehicle is locked in place so that it won’t move. However, there’s nothing enclosing it or protecting it from potentially harmful elements (like hail, for instance). 

When compared with enclosed vehicle transport, this is the cheaper option. Again, this is because your vehicle is shipped amongst other cars. The ability to ship several cars in one drive makes for a less costly trip for the transport company; these cost savings are passed down to you, the customer. 

Another big benefit of open vehicle transport is that it’s more flexible in terms of shipping dates. Because there are more spots available, it’s easier to find a time slot that suits you. 

Open vehicle transport also enables you to ship several of your vehicles at once. In other words, they’ll arrive at the desired point at exactly the same time. This isn’t always true of enclosed vehicle transport. 

Enclosed Vehicle Transport

If you’re looking for a little more protection for your vehicle during the transport process, you should go with enclosed vehicle transport. This is when your vehicle is stored inside of an enclosed vehicle transporter and kept separate from other vehicles. It’s beneficial in that it provides full protection from the elements as well as from potential damage-causing entities (like rocks or tree branches, for instance). 

This form of transport can be used for any type of vehicle. Note, though, that it’s the only viable form of transport for vehicles that possess low ground clearance. These vehicles include brands like Porsche, Mercedes, and Ferrari, to name just a few. 

In other words, if you have one of these vehicles, it can’t be shipped with open vehicle transport. It can only be shipped with enclosed vehicle transport. 

Now, enclosed vehicle transport is the more expensive option. However, with the added protection it provides, it could very well be a more suitable option for your vehicle.

Cross Country Vehicle Transport

Whether you’re transporting your vehicle to the other side of the state, several states over, or all the way across the country (including Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, and Alaska!), you can be accommodated. We deliver vehicles to homes, offices, warehouses, and otherwise. Regardless of where your vehicle is shipped to, it will be treated with the utmost care and protection.

Seasonal Vehicle Transport

Maybe you have a vacation house in Florida? Perhaps you’re spending the summer up on the Great Lakes? In any case, if you’re going to live in a different place for the season, you’re likely going to need a vehicle to get around in. 

Now, you could drive the vehicle the long distance it takes to get there. However, in many cases, it’s ideal to just have it transported by a professional transport company. You can take a plane and meet the vehicle there on a designated date.
