Enclosed Auto Transport
When cars are transported cross country through an auto shipping company, they are transported in one of two ways - enclosed vehicle transportation or open vehicle transportation.
If you choose to have enclosed transportation, your car will be protected against the elements and the dangers that may occur while moving any piece of machinery over long distances. This is how most auto transport companies will transport vehicles. It ensures security and protects the car from weather conditions, security threats like theft and gives the car some protection in the event of a collision.
An enclosed trailer is usually a custom built truck that's designed with extra strong protection and is hard sided. These trailers also come with the newer hydraulic ramp system that eliminates the necessity of the car having to be loaded onto the transporter in an inclining manner. Through the use of a hydraulic lift the car can be loaded onto the trailer while being in the horizontal position throughout. An enclosed trailer will have excellent cushioning and seat covers that will help protect your car on the long journey ahead.
Enclosed car transport is the only option for shipping a car when you're transporting exotic cars, and even otherwise. It may cost a little more but it's well worth the price.
