When it comes to shipping your car, the biggest question you’ll have to answer is whether to ship it on an open or enclosed trailer. For those not familiar with vehicle transport, it can be hard to figure out which is better for them. At Pittsburgh Auto Transport, we have tons of knowledge about car shipping of all kinds, and we’re happy to share that knowledge with you. Here’s some of what our team has to say about how to choose between open and enclosed auto transport.
Open Transport Saves You Time and Money
One of our knowledgeable phone agents told me, “I always tell people to go with open shipping first. It’s just easier for everyone.”
She couldn’t be more right. The best thing about open shipping is that it’s easy on everybody involved. Open carriers are much more common than their enclosed counterparts, making scheduling an open shipment far easier. Because of this, you’re more likely to be able to schedule it for a convenient time for you, making it easier on you too. And it’s also easier on your wallet! If you can’t quite decide between open and enclosed transport, then you should probably just go with open. The ease of use and great savings make this option our standard service for most circumstances.
Enclosed Shipping Gives Your Car the Utmost Security
“If someone’s got a fancy car,” one of our drivers said recently, “then you should tell them to ship it enclosed.”
While open shipping is great, there’s a reason that we offer other services. Open shipping opens your car up to the small risk that something happens to it in transit. Every time you drive your car, there’s a slight chance that a rock will kick up from the road and mess up your car. That danger, although small, is still there with open transport.
Enclosed transport is different. With this service, you can be sure that your vehicle will be completely safe and secure while in transit. Our drivers will secure it in a protective shell, completely shielding it from the perils of the road. That’s why our driver said he’d recommend it for fancier cars. If your car is incredibly valuable, you’ll want to protect it at all costs. And enclosed transport provides the peace of mind of knowing your car’s in no danger at all while out on the road.
