1. Open Vehicle Transport

When looking into options for shipping your car, open vehicle transport is generally the most popular option.  This is the open that most people are familiar with.  These are semi trailers that are transporting cars with open sided trailers, generally 5-9 at a time.

What Is Considered With Open Vehicle Transport?

With open vehicle transport, there are a number of variables that must be considered when quoting to ship your car.  This will include the size of the vehicle, when the car shipping will take place, if the vehicle is in operation at the time and locations of both the pickup and the delivery of the vehicle.

There Are Pros And Cons To Open Vehicle Transport

It is cheaper than closed vehicle transport, better visibility, and it is also better for the environment.  Some of the cons include that it is out in the elements at all times because it is not enclosed and it may gather dirt and debris that occurs during the transport of the vehicle.    

2. Closed Vehicle Transport

An alternative to open vehicle transport is closed vehicle transport.  This is generally a better option for people who are very particular about their automobile.  Those with expensive vehicles, antique automobiles, or highly customized vehicles may choose this option to better protect their car.

There Are Pros And Cons Of Closed Vehicle Transport

Since the closed vehicle transport offers protection from the weather, many people see it as a huge plus.  The downside is that there will almost certainly be additional costs on top of the open transport option.
