What is enclosed car transport?
Enclosed car transport is a type of auto transport that adds protection for vehicles. It’s a great car shipping option if you need to transport a classic or luxury car. Enclosed carriers can often only carry a few vehicles at the same time, in most cases, up to 7 automobiles.
What are enclosed car transport prices?
Enclosed car transport prices are calculated the same as open car transport, but you’ll pay about $300 more per trip for added protection. For standard-sized vehicles: short routes (1-500 miles) average $709, medium routes (500-1500 miles) average $929 and longer routes (1500+ miles) average $1179.
Do I need enclosed car transport?
Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you’re deciding whether you need enclosed car transport, or the standard open auto transport:
- Do you consider your car an investment?
- Are you concerned about snow or cold weather?
- Are you concerned about dust, dirt, pollution, or other debris your car might be subject to over the course of transport?
- Is your car old and/or have a custom or unique paint job?
- Do you want extra protection against theft?
We know that you want your car to arrive as clean as when you left it. Avoid exposure to the elements or extreme weather with enclosed auto shipping. Your enclosed car transport cost will just be a little bit extra.
