What is Enclosed Auto Transport?Enclosed Auto transport quote

If you’re wanting an enclosed auto transport quote, we’d love to give you some understanding of what enclosed is, and the whole process. Enclosed auto transport is a vehicle being moved while inside of a truck, instead of on the outside of a truck.

When on the outside of the truck, it can be with 9 other cars. There are 5 cars on the bottom, and 5 cars on the top. When doing enclosed, the vehicle is inside a truck, with only 3 other cars, maximum.

It is not very likely that any significant damage will occur to a vehicle while it’s being moved. But enclosed can offer that extra protection. Enclosed is done to protect the vehicle from wind, dirt, twigs, pebbles, snow, ice, rain and hail. Some of these things occur no matter what, so if protection against them is what you’re looking for, then enclosed is the way to go.
