OPEN VS ENCLOSED TRANSPORT - WHICH SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The difference between open carriers and enclosed carriers can be explained quite simply. On an open carrier, the cars are visible to the eye. You've seen trucks go by with 10 cars, all shiny and new, on the way from the factory to the dealership. This gives a false impression of glitter. In actuality, your vehicle will probably arrive as dusty and filthy as you could imagine! Caked on mud and grime from the air and the road will accumulate on the surface. The vehicle is of course, insured against any damages, but dirt is not neglible! On the other hand, there are autos being shipped passed you every day and you probably don't even realize it! They are being shipped via enclosed transport. They willl stay clean. They will not be affected by the weather or the elements or road debris. When vehicles are shipped on an enclosed carrier, they are protected. They will arrive in pristine condition. You would ship an average vehicle via open carrier, because dirt will wash off. If you were transporting via enclosed transport, the car will arrive in the same clean condition as when the journey began. If you have just bought a new car, or a classic or a high end vehicle, then hands down, an enclosed transport is the way to go! However, be aware that the cost differs greatly from an open transporter's price. An average price for an enclosed carrier is $1 per mile. Costs could end up being $2 or $3 per mile, depending on the size of the vehicle, who is doing the actual transporting and the distance. Just know that the level of insurance varies as well. Open carrier starts at $100K Cargo. Enclosed carrier- $250K to $3M Cargo. Rest assured, The Ship An Auto Company has got you covered! In the rare case that your vehicle does sustain damage, we will walk you through the claims process step by step. It will be just like filing a claim with your own insurance company. It will be the carrier's insurance policy that is responsible for all repairs and again, we will be with you every step of the way!
