Whether you own an antique, classic, luxury, or sports cars, enclosed auto shipping is ideal for your most prized vehicles. These vehicles require special care, so they deserve maximum protection throughout transit. These types of carriers can house one, two, or multiple vehicles. Plus, most enclosed trailers have hydraulic lift gate systems that make loading cars into position simple. Furthermore, there are two different interiors available in enclosed carriers—in other words, you will find hard-sided and soft-sided trailers. Hard-sided carriers are airtight, and they usually boast a thin but tough aluminum, fiberglass, or tin material. On the other hand, soft-side carriers feature canvas or vinyl, and this material acts as a protective curtain to keep the cars damage-free.
There are fewer enclosed carriers out there, and for good reason. First, there is no denying that this shipping method is fast—this is because the trucks make fewer stops. And one of the best perks that come with enclosed shipping is the fact that you can rest assured your car will experience very little to no damage. Closed carriers do not expose vehicles to the elements because, unlike open trailers, they have four sides and a roof. Even the drivers receive training to secure the cars properly. They will ensure that the vehicles have enough clearance and that the fluids from the cars on the top level won’t drip onto the cars on the lower level.
These closed trailers also offer security, as they won’t give others the opportunity to vandalize your car and decrease its value. To put it simply, vehicles will arrive at their destinations in the best possible condition, which is why we opt for enclosed auto shipping. Some can argue that a possible downside is that enclosed carriers require more fuel; however, the incredible advantages outweigh any negatives. In addition, others can claim that it may be more difficult to perform regular inspections. That is why we prioritize checking vehicles before, during, and after transit.
