You’ll just have to type or give your details to your shipping company and they will ensure you a successful vehicle delivery at your home or final destination. Most auto transport companies offer the service, and it's a great way to save time while being present at the pickup and delivery point.

Open auto transport: The standard auto shipping method and the most common among car movers. Your car is loaded into an open carrier, which is shared with around 8 more vehicles exposed to the outdoors. Therefore, prices are more affordable since you’ll be sharing space with other cars. 

Enclosed auto transport: Consists in carrying your vehicle in a completely enclosed and private hauler, protecting your car from natural elements. The cost to ship with enclosed shipping tends to be a bit more expensive compared to open transport, but it's the best alternative for vintage, new, or exotic vehicles since cars are not exposed to the outdoors. 

Where will my vehicle be picked up and delivered?

If you decide for door to door auto transport, you will be opting to receive your vehicle at your door. That is definitely the purpose of door to door shipping. However, some cities may have restrictions that prohibit large trucks from entering residential zones. 

That will deny the access of some car carriers at the customer’s desired location due to several reasons such as low trees, narrow stress, tight turns, among others. In that case, you’ll have to communicate with your driver so you can both meet at a nearby location where the loading or unloading process can be done successfully. 

What type of car carrier/truck will transport my car?


There are different types of trucks that deliver different types of vehicles as well. The size of the truck or carrier depends basically on the size of your car. It also is determined by the shipping method you choose for transporting your car from your location to your desired destination.
