Pros of Open Carriers
There are more open carriers on the road; therefore, your vehicle will get transported much faster this way. Since there are more of these types of carriers, they are less expensive than enclosed carriers.
Cons of Open Carriers
Your vehicle will be exposed to the weather. Even though we strive to deliver your vehicle in perfect condition, it is likely that your vehicle may have accumulated road dust by the time it is delivered, just as if you drove the vehicle yourself.
Enclosed Carrier Auto Shipping
While not as common as open carriers, enclosed carriers are a popular method for auto shipping. Vehicles loaded in enclosed carriers are protected from the weather.
If you’re looking to transport a high-end or classic vehicle, a low ground clearance vehicle, or a vehicle with an exposed interior, enclosed vehicle shipping is the best option for you.
Pros of Enclosed Carriers
Enclosed carriers often carry more insurance per vehicle. Some enclosed carriers use scissor lifts rather than ramps and are better equipped to transport low clearance vehicles.
Cons of Enclosed Carriers
It usually takes longer to arrange auto shipping via enclosed carrier because there are less of them on the road. Shipping with an enclosed carrier generally requires more advance notice to arrange transport and this method is more expensive than open carrier shipping.
