Open Carrier Car Shipping - Auto Transport

OPEN trailer TRANSPORT

Our most popular and cost-effective car transport service is open transport. With this shipping option, your car is securely attached to an open-air transport and is taken across the country.

Enclosed car transport trailer with vehicles inside

ENCLOSED trailer TRANSPORT

Enclosed trailer transport is a method of transporting vehicles using an enclosed trailer. The trailer provides complete protection from weather elements, road debris, and other hazards that could damage the vehicle during transit. This method of shipping is commonly used for luxury, antique, or classic cars, as well as for high-end sports cars, as they require this extra layer of protection during transport.

2. Our carrier picks up your vehicle

A few hours before your scheduled pick-up time, the carrier will contact you. They need to confirm the pick-up location is accessible for large commercial vehicles. If you think it might be a problem, let them know and they can arrange an alternative. You could meet them in a wider street, where you work, or at a parking lot. Both you and the driver have to inspect your vehicle closely before it’s loaded. Record any dings, dents, scratches, or other existing damage on the Bill of Lading. This is a crucial document in the shipping process, and you must keep your copy safe. The carrier will then load your vehicle onto the transport trailer. You can track the progress of your shipment by checking in with the driver at any time. Alternatively, receive regular updates over the phone, by email, or Live Chat.

3. Your vehicle is delivered to it's destination

A few hours before the carrier arrives, they’ll get in touch to let you know they’re almost there. It’s also a courtesy call to make sure you’re available. If you’re otherwise engaged, you can nominate a trusted friend, relative, neighbor, or colleague to accept delivery on your behalf. They do, however, have to be at least 18 years of age. Upon delivery of your vehicle, you have the opportunity to check its condition before signing the Bill of Lading.
