One of the best methods of shipping an exotic car is through enclosed transport services. Exotic Car Transport offers the best enclosed transport services in the nation. Explore the features available when you choose Exotic Car Transport.
What is Enclosed Transport?
Think of enclosed transport services like a five-star hotel, only for your exotic car. You will often hear enclosed transport called covered car transport. When you decide to use enclosed transport for your vehicle, you are getting the most excellent handling the industry has to offer.
Anatomy of an Enclosed Trailer
Hard or soft sides can surround enclosed trailers used for car transport purposes. Most of these trailers are equipped with a hydraulic lifting system that allows the vehicle to remain horizontal when moving it onto the truck.
These hydraulic lifts also accommodate lower profile vehicles, which most exotic cars fall into that category. Soft straps are utilized when securing an exotic car in an enclosed transport trailer. Just because the equipment used is more gentle, it doesn’t mean they aren’t just as strong.
Perks of Using Enclosed Transport
Enclosed transport, whether it is hard or soft, can offer protection that you can’t get anywhere else. Weather is unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean that your vehicle has to be subject to it if you are having it shipped. It doesn’t always occur, but hail can cause dents and dings to your vehicle. Enclosed transport saves your exotic car from this abuse.
Exotic Car Transport drivers are the best in the industry. They offer white-glove service, that is unbeatable. Having highly experienced drivers in your corner when you are transporting a vehicle offers more reassurance than transporting it by yourself or another company.
Understanding Enclosed Transport Cost
Enclosed transport is not going to be the cheapest way to transport your exotic car, but it is the safest. It is safe to assume that these types of transport trailers are more expensive than those that are uncovered and offer less protection from the elements.
Drivers of enclosed transport trailers are also highly trained to drive and operate the extra equipment that keeps your exotic car safe. We help combat the price fluctuations you may see by maintaining a fleet that is designed explicitly for your exotic car transportation needs.
Enclosed transport also requires a higher level of insurance coverage due to the cargo it generally ships. Keeping this in mind, your price will reflect expenditures for the coverage as well. We only provide the best coverages at the best rates during transport.
Other factors play into the prices you will pay when you ship your vehicle. These are custom in the industry and reflect things like mileage, weight, gas prices, the time of year you are shipping, and much more. All of these details factor into the cost of your vehicle shipment.
What Delivery Options Are Available With Enclosed Shipping?
When you decide to ship your exotic vehicle, there are different options for pick up and delivery that you should consider. Some of them are more expensive than others, but being informed of your choices help you receive the best prices in the industry.
When you need your delivery to reach a destination as quickly as possible, expedited shipping via enclosed transport is the option you will need to choose. This is also the most expensive type of shipping price you will pay. Just like when you purchase something online, and it has to be shipped, you pay extra for quicker shipping.
Door-to-door shipping is the most popular option in car shipping. This is where we pick your car up at the location you give us, and we drop it off at the destination you choose. This can tack on extra mileage depending on the area it needs to be taken to.
Choosing to do a terminal transport is the cheapest way to go when shipping a car, even in an enclosed situation. You take your exotic car to a terminal, usually in a larger city. It is then transported to another terminal near your destination. This saves mileage, and if multiple cars are being shipped to the same terminal, it can reduce the rate you pay.
What Can I Do To Get The Best Price?
Shop around. There is no better way to put it. If you want to find the best price to ship your exotic vehicle, shop around. Not all enclosed carriers are the same, and not all companies are the same. Getting a quote from multiple providers can give you insight on how much you can expect to pay.
