If you need to transport your car, you may feel daunted by the numerous factors you have to consider before scheduling your shipment. Do you want door-to-door delivery or do you prefer dropping off and picking up your car at certain locations? When do you want to transport your car? And, what type of carrier do you choose?
If most options have to do with your own schedule and preferences, the type of carrier you choose can actually make a great difference in how protected your car is going to be during transit.
So, here’s what you need to know about private enclosed car transport and why you may want to choose this option.
What Is Enclosed Car Transport
As the name suggests, enclosed transport means that your car is shipped in a fully closed trailer. At Exotic Car Transport, for example, we’ve designed our trailers to offer enhanced protection and provide the safest, most reliable ride possible. Our fleet has both 2-cars enclosed trailers and 6-cars enclosed trailers, and you can choose between them based on your needs and budget. Regardless, all our trailers are equipped with the latest technology and allow for GPS monitoring.
How Much Will Private Enclosed Car Transport Cost Me?
You can expect to pay up to 40% more for an enclosed trailer, but the price is well justified. First of all, open trailers can carry tens of cars at once as opposed to enclosed trailers that can carry a maximum of six or seven vehicles. That alone will influence the price significantly as the company has to ship more cars to get the same return.
Costs aside, with a private enclosed carrier you can rest assured that your vehicle is safe from the elements and the road grime and debris.
Is a Private Enclosed Trailer for Me?
You may think that a private enclosed trailer comes with a high price tag and you will be better with an open carrier. That may be true. But, before you decide, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I need to transport a luxury or classic vehicle? If that’s the case, then a private enclosed trailer is the right option as it can ensure your car’s safety during transit and give you the peace of mind that your priced vehicle will reach its destination intact.
- Are you concerned about the weather? If you don’t have that much flexibility with your schedule and need to transport your car during wintertime or a storm, then an enclosed trailer will protect your vehicle from the elements.
- Do you want protection against theft? Although drivers are usually careful, they cannot keep an eye on the carrier 24/7. With an enclosed trailer, you can get an extra layer of protection and ensure your car is safe against theft.
