By choosing this type of transportation you will dramatically decrease the chances of your car getting damaged during transit, because it will not be exposed to weather conditions and other hazards. The enclosed trailers have drop floors so that they can fit more cars and also offer better value and a lift gate to load vehicles with minimal ground clearance.
Some enclosed trailers are climate controlled to avoid exposing the car to temperatures that are too low or too high and secure straps instead of chains, to protect the vehicle while keeping it in place.
Cost of enclosed car shipping
The costs for enclosed car shipping are higher compared to open car shipping due to various reasons. Enclosed trailers are special, more expensive and in the US only 10% of the whole fleet is enclosed. This makes this type of transportation less available and therefore more expensive.
Another reason is that the insurance coverage is higher due to the high end cargo. Also, enclose trailers have limited space, which means they can only carry between 2 and 7 vehicles. They also have specialized equipment to ensure the extra protection of the vehicles and this also adds to the price.
We also need highly experienced drivers, who know how to handle such types of vehicles. On average, prices for enclosed car shipping are with 40% higher compared to the traditional car transport.
But if you are to compare the two ways of shipping your car, you will understand that the money you pay for enclosed car shipping is totally worth it. Seeing your car delivered in the safest conditions and by professionals, is everything that you could want for your vehicle.
Advantages of Enclosed Auto Transport
Safety is the biggest advantage offered by enclosed auto transport. Soft straps are used not to damage your car in any way and special equipment to get in on and off the trailer. Being enclosed, means that your car will not be touched by the elements, debris, tress and any other damaging objects and conditions.
Protection for Expensive and Rare Cars
Transporting an expensive vehicle is a great responsibility. That is why it will be worth spending a few hundred dollars more on this type of transportation, knowing that your car will arrive at the destination in perfect condition. When it comes to cars of high value, even something as little as a scratch or a ding can dramatically lower its value. With enclosed transportation this will never happen.
Because enclosed auto transport is quite rarely chosen by customers, auto transport companies can also offer special services such as arranging pickups and drop offs at times that are convenient for the client.
An enclosed auto carrier is much smaller than an open one. It can accommodate up to seven cars. The smaller size of the trailer and the special securing equipment will keep you car clamped in place.
