What is the difference between open and enclosed auto transport?

Open car transport means that your vehicle will be outdoors and exposed to the elements during transit. This is the most common and economical way to ship your vehicle. Enclosed auto transport adds a layer of safety and ensures your vehicle is protected on all 4 sides. It normally costs about 30%-40% more than open car transport. We recommend you take advantage of our enclosed auto transport services if you are shipping a classic, luxury, vintage, sport or antique vehicle. If your vehicle has less than 4 inch ground clearance we also recommend you use enclosed auto transport for its safety.
