VIP Auto Shipping offers you a few choices in transporting your vehicle. If you have any concerns about the standard method known as an open-carrier transport, then our Enclosed Auto Transport is the method you should choose.
There are basically two different method types of transporting a car. The first way is the common way which is using an Open-Carrier. This method is the more common method cars are shipped. These trucks are the trucks and trailers you see normally on the road with a number of cars on it with open tops and sides. Typically this is the least expensive method. However, since the vehicles are open-air and exposed to the elements, they risk possible types of damage. Road debris such as sand, stone, tires and salt (in the winter months) can all do damage to any unprotected vehicle. Also, the weather must be taken into consideration. Sleet, snow and especially hail can do a number on a nice paint job! To secure these cars in place, a chain is placed on the frame of the car and then attached to the trailer. In nearly all cases, your car will arrive in the same condition as it was picked up in.
The second most common and popular type of Car Carrier is an Enclosed Auto Transport - Enclosed transport is by far the safest method; your car is placed in an enclosed trailer or truck that protects it from the everything including possible road debris. Our auto transport carriers use what are called “soft ties” to connect your car to the trailer (rather than chaining it to the frame). Our enclosed auto shipping drivers offer first class “white glove” service; they may even put down floor mats to protect your carpets and interior if requested. Be aware though, all these extra services come with an additional cost, enclosed vehicle shipping can cost you anywhere from 25-40% more than using an open transport service.
Enclosed auto transport isn’t for everyone. However, if you have a classic, an exotic or high-end luxury car, it can be well worth it. Make sure you do some research and check all your options so you can make the most informed decision.
