If you need to get your vehicle shipped from one destination to the other, this process does not have to be complicated. In your research, you may have discovered that there are typically two options when shipping a vehicle – open carrier shipping and enclosed car shipping. Intuitively, the differences between these two methods of vehicle shipping may seem self-explanatory. However, there are very good reasons to distinguish between the two, and closed car shipping may be the best method available in your situation. At DRS Transports, our enclosed car shipping transportation experts want to discuss what this process entails and why this may be your choice.

What is enclosed car shipping?

Most people are probably familiar with open carrier vehicle shipping. That would be the type of transportation where the vehicles are visible to the outside elements. However, enclosed car shipping is when an automobile is transported inside of the semi-truck’s trailer.

Why choose enclosed car shipping as opposed to open carrier auto transportation?

Enclosed car shipping is a great shipping option if you need to transport a classic or luxury car. Enclosed carriers typically only carry a few vehicles at a time. An enclosed car carrier is going to ensure that the vehicle is not exposed to the outside elements in any way.

Should you choose enclosed car transportation?

When working to determine whether or not you need enclosed car shipping or standard open auto transport, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you consider your vehicle an investment?
  • Are you concerned about snow or cold weather?
  • Are you concerned about rain?
  • Are you concerned about roadway debris, dirt, dust, or pollution that your vehicle may be subjected to?
  • Is your car considered a classic?
  • Does your vehicle have a unique paint job?
  • Is your vehicle a high-end luxury vehicle?
  • Do you desire extra protection against theft?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to consider enclosed car transportation services to get your vehicle from one destination to the other.
