Type of Transport
The type of transport you choose for your car can also significantly impact the cost of shipping.
Open transport, which is the most common type of car shipping, involves transporting vehicles on an open trailer with no enclosure. Open transport is typically less expensive than enclosed transport, which provides extra protection for your vehicle by transporting it in an enclosed trailer.
The cost of enclosed transport is higher due to the additional security, exclusivity, and protection it provides for your vehicle.
Additionally, the number of cars being transported can also affect the cost of shipping. Transporting multiple cars on the same trailer can lead to lower prices since the carrier can split the overall cost among several customers. Conversely, if you're shipping just one car, you may need to pay a premium to cover the entire cost of the shipment. When deciding on the type of transport to use, consider the value of your vehicle, your budget, and your desired level of protection to make an informed decision.
