People who have a valid reason to send their car to a specific location will definitely need the service assistance of a car transportation company which is in the business of offering several types of car transport, such as open air service, enclosed transport, terminal to terminal, door to door, luxury, exotic and high end services, and electric vehicle shipping. So you can get exactly your expectations at the best price available in transporting your car, you should, therefore, extract as much information about understanding the process of each type of auto transport services.
The open air car transportation service allows for a good number of cars that will be shipped to a specific destination and are loaded into a multi-car carrier, of which this is a preferred choice by auto car dealers or with customers who would like to save and are conscious on a cost-effective measure. While this type of service is cost-saving, most customers are concerned about weather condition or road condition effect on their cars during the transit process, which may not fully guarantee complete protection on their cars.
That is why some customers would rather choose the enclosed auto transport service, even if the price is a bit higher, because it protects the cars from the elements. A measure to assure customers in fully protecting their cars from the effects of travel conditions is by offering them another type of service which is the enclosed car transport and this comes into two kinds – the soft-sided which uses a canvas to cover the cars from the elements, especially on damages from small rocks, wind and rain, and the hard-sided which completely encloses the cars from any form of travel elements, sealing them from the outside inconveniences. Some of the added services extended for luxury or high-end cars are the following: air ride suspension to ensure for a smoother ride, wall and floor mounted brackets, covered interior and exterior, hydraulic lift gate for loading and unloading, and drip guards to prevent possible leaks.
Probably the most affordable service type of car transport is the terminal to terminal shipping as it obliges the customers to drop off and pick up their cars to a know terminal location which is owned by the car transport company. Furthermore, if the terminal to terminal service is not possible to a destination that a customer prefers because the car transport company does not have an available terminal, then the door to door service will be the next recommended option, which will be costly but will be convenient for the customer as his/her car will be picked up from the car owner’s place and delivered to a specific location requested by the customer. Finally, all these mentioned car transport services come with a package insurance expense, but which can be availed of either from the car transport company or from a third party carrier.
