Who needs it?
Enclosed car shipping is an option for anyone who wants the car protected during shipping, but especially for those who need classic or luxury cars transported. Many customers will hesitate about choosing this option due to the higher costs compared to the open carriers. But when it comes to restoring a vintage car, the enclosed carrier becomes a viable option.
Why is it better than open transport?
Safety is the biggest advantage offered by the enclosed carriers. The vehicle is fastened with soft straps which do not damage your car in any way. Special equipment is used to get in on and off the trailer. Being in an enclosed carrier, means that your car will not be touched by the elements, trees, debris and any other damaging objects and conditions.
Protection for Expensive and Rare Cars
As mentioned above, it will be worth spending a few hundred dollars more on this type of transportation, to have the peace of mind that your car will arrive at the destination in perfect condition. You do not want a little scratch or ding to dramatically lower your car's value. With enclosed transportation this will never happen.
Enclosed auto transport is quite rarely chosen by customers, that is why auto transport companies can also provide special services such as arranging pickups and drop offs at the convenient times for the client.
An enclosed auto carrier is much smaller compared to an open one. This means that it can be fewer cars, which are better clamped in place and faster to transport.
How to prepare your car for transportation?
Even if you choose an enclosed auto carrier you still have to prepare your vehicle to avoid any loss or damage done to your car while in the move. Wash your car and have it inspected. Note down and take pictures of any scratches or marks that are on it. Make sure that your vehicle does not have any leaks or malfunctioning, tie down any added pieces and the spoilers, if you cannot unassemble them before transportation.
The enclosed carriers need an open area to be able to load your car safely. Make sure that you look for an area that does not have narrow streets, low clearance light posts, and cables, it's free of branches, and it is not crowded with cars or other obstacles. Before you book our services, make sure you give us all the details about your car so that we can offer you the best service.
If you're still thinking whether to choose this type of transportation, you should also know that the insurance for enclosed car shipping is the best one offered and it can cover up to $1,000,000 in losses or damages. That's why the costs for the enclosed carriers are higher.
When you plan to ship your car take these points into consideration before deciding.
