We strive to do our businesses transparently and believe that our satisfied clients are our best advertisement. Before you fill out a quote request form, let us briefly introduce you to the world of auto transport.
Over the years, our company has transported thousands of different vehicles, from SUV-s and motorcycles to luxury and classic cars. There is a place for all of them on our trucks, which cruise down the roads across the US. We know that many people are not ready to sell their beloved four-wheeler and then buy a new one upon their relocation. And that is totally understandable. It is much more convenient to have a car you are already used to driving wait for you at your destination than to be without a car for the first few weeks or to have to rent one.
Whether you are going to a state next door or you are moving cross country, you have to admit that it is much more comfortable to board a plane while someone else transports your belongings and vehicles. Yes, road trips can be fun, especially with kids, pets, and a bunch of things packed in your trunk, but if you are not one of those enthusiasts who do not mind driving for hours and days, we offer a more convenient solution. Is this the first time you are trying to ship your vehicle? Don’t worry, we will explain everything in detail down below, but you can also call our customer service to get all the information and request a quote.
There are two basic types of auto transportation that most companies offer, open and enclosed carriers. Both have their advantages, so we like to leave it to our clients to choose which one suits their needs the best. Whatever you opt for, your vehicle will be transported as safely as possible and according to prearranged time frames. Let’s dive deeper into the options you have and find out a bit more about them and the cost of our long distance moving services.
By far, the most popular means of auto shipping is an open trailer truck, which you are probably aware of since you can see them on the roads quite often. But why is that the case? The most significant advantage of an open trailer is the fact that it can accommodate more vehicles – usually up to nine, depending on their size and weight. So, in case your family owns more than one car, you can ship them all together without having to stress about driving for hours.
Another great thing is that this is the most affordable option for auto transport you can find. It can carry more cars than an enclosed trailer, but surprisingly it moves faster. There is no lift gate, but a rack and straps are used to secure the wheels onto the platform. A hydraulic technology allows the truck driver to arrange all the cars in a way to maximize the free space.
Do you own a rare sports car or decades-old classic? You just bought a new car, and you don’t want to risk it getting scratched or damaged during transportation? Then the enclosed trailer is the best choice. We have years of experience in transporting all the big names in the automobile industry, from Ferrari and Maserati to Lamborghini and Bentley, so if your four-wheeler falls into this category, do not hesitate to contact us.
The main advantage is, of course, the fact that the trailer is closed, meaning that all the cars inside are protected from bad weather or road debris. There is also a lift gate, which makes the loading and unloading process much smoother and safer. Wheel straps are used to ensure that the vehicle does not move during the ride. However, this type of carrier can accommodate only up to 4 vehicles, depending on their size.
