▷ Open Transport
Open car transport car shipping has many advantages over other types of transport. To begin with, if you’re moving your vehicle long distance within the United States and you’re trying to make the most economical choice, you should definitely consider this transport service. It is, without a doubt, the least expensive way to ship your car. In terms of numbers, it’s how over 95% of the trucking companies in the industry operate. This means a large network, which makes open auto transport carriers the fastest. If pricing and timing are what you’re primarily concerned with, you already have the answer in front of you.
Keep in mind that choosing this type of car carrier means your vehicle will be outdoors during transit and thus exposed to weather conditions. This is something to be aware of although if you drive your vehicle daily, there is practically no difference from what the vehicle experiences on your way to work or to pick up the kids. Additionally, all truckers we work with are fully insured and in the event of an accident, there will be zero deductible to you. Statistically speaking, however, there is less than a 5% chance of this happening. It’s also important to note that car dealerships nation-wide use mostly these carriers to ship new vehicles to their locations. If they trust them, there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t.
If you still want reassurance that nothing will happen to your vehicle, you can opt for the top load guarantee service—a good transport company will make that available to you. It will ensure your vehicle is loaded on the top level and protected from potential leaks from other vehicles. The cost is about $75 on top of the booked price so make sure to ask our representatives how you can add it to your shipping order.
Another advantage of using this transport service is that you could request an exact pickup date. Although the industry works with estimated dates, in some cases there are exceptions and pickups on a specific day or within a range of two or three days are possible. We can more easily do that with trailers that are not fully covered for purely practical reasons—the high number of this type of trucks out there makes it easier for us to find a driver who would accommodate a more pressing pickup deadline. In conclusion, if you’re still undecided on whether to go with open or enclosed auto transport, keep in mind that the former saves you time and money, makes it possible to take advantage of additional services and is fully insured. From our side, we guarantee that we will pick a carrier company with a strong customer satisfaction record and will make sure to keep you updated every step of the process.
