About Open or Enclosed Car Transport Services

Using car transport services is very important to protect your vehicle and improve its longevity. Deciding to use auto transporting is a simple choice when embarking on a big move, but when confronted with the option of open or enclosed transport things may get a bit more complicated. If you’ve never utilized car transport services then you should be fully educated on what the differences are between the two in order to decide what the best option is for you.

Typically, open auto transporting means that 10 cars are carried on a trailer that is open and exposed to the elements. There are usually 5 cars on top and 5 on the bottom.  Open trailers are commonly used for a few reasons. A few of the main reasons are because they are lighter, cheaper and hold more cars than closed car transport services.

Closed transporting is the ideal option for transporting your vehicle if you’re sensitive to having it exposed to rain, sleet, snow, hail, and other unpredictable weather related occurrences.  Closed auto transporting is usually more expensive. This is because the carrier is heavier and can only hold about 3 cars. Close transporting also requires special safety precautions to keep the vehicles, often antique or luxury, from sliding around and getting damaged in the carrier.
