Auto Transport Tips: Choosing the Right Carrier for You
When it comes to choosing the right carrier for your specific auto transport needs, there are a couple of things that you should know. You probably already know that there are generally two types, open and enclosed, and open is used more for daily driver vehicles while enclosed is used more for high-end vehicles that can’t really be exposed to inclement weather for more than a few hours at a time. You probably also know that enclosed transport is a bit harder to find and will generally be more expensive and come with longer pickup windows because of how few they are.
Generally when you ship a car on an open carrier, however, you want to try and keep it dirty until it’s delivered (some carriers even wash your car for you before they deliver) because it’s going to help protect against those minor dings and dents that sometimes happen. If your car can’t get dirty or have excessive dirt, you don’t want to ship it via an open carrier because it’s going to get a lot of noticeable scratches and the like that a bit of dirt will help prevent. When choosing a carrier you want to make sure that you talk to a representative about the best specific shipping method for your specific needs.
