Auto Shipping FAQ: What Vehicles Can be Shipped Enclosed?

enclosed-trailer-car-loadedIn truth, just about any vehicle that can fit on a standard ten-car auto transport carrier can fit in an enclosed container. We’ve discussed enclosed car transport services several times in our daily blog, but mostly we’ve discussed pricing differences and what to expect in terms of pickup windows, as enclosed car shippers can be more difficult to find than the open variety. It’s important to understand your options when it comes time to ship a vehicle, as it will help you make a more informed – and therefore better – decision in regards to the carrier you use and who you book with.

As mentioned, enclosed auto transport services are more expensive than the open variety because they are more difficult to find. Enclosed transportation is used primarily to ship vehicles that cannot handle being on the road and subjected to the elements for a long period of time. Usually these vehicles are high-end ones, particularly classic or exotic vehicles. These vehicles are harder to repair and cost a lot more money, so protecting them from things like rocks, dust and dirt and other road debris goes a long way to keeping their value intact when you’re shipping it, and the expense is typically warranted considering how expensive the vehicle is.

Most any vehicle can be shipped on an enclosed carrier if you have the money to do so, but the vast majority of cars and trucks on the road today don’t really need it. If you’re shipping a daily driver, chances are it’s got more wear and tear on it already than what it will get when it’s shipped. Shipping a vehicle means you don’t put the miles on it, nor the wear and tear on the engine or the body or the tires, but enclosed transportation gives you protection from the elements, as we mentioned, which is why it’s used primarily for vehicles that don’t see the road all that much. Keeping a vehicle’s exterior pristine is a big part of maintaining the value of a vehicle, which is hard to do anyway considering that most vehicles depreciate in value quite rapidly.
