When having your vehicle shipped by a car transport company. You will need to decide what type of truck and trailer to use to transport your vehicle. You first have to decide if you want your vehicle exposed to weather and other conditions or if you want your vehicle protected in an enclosed trailer.
If you have questions about these different types of trailers ask your car transport company for more information before you decide which is best for you. There are many things to take into account when choosing which way to ship your vehicle. What type of car will you be shipping, does your car run, does you car have low ground clearance, and is it having any mechanical problems. All of these things can help you determine which type of car transport will work best for you.
When it comes to truck types for transporting your vehicle there are different kinds. The truck types used for car transport are pick up style trucks and tractor trailer trucks. The tractor trailer type trucks are usually the cheapest to use because they can haul many vehicles all at once.
The down fall of using tractor trailer trucks to transport your vehicle is that they can be slower and have a hard time getting around if they have to go into residential areas. Sometimes because of this you have to prepare to meet your driver in a more open area when loading and unloading your vehicle. Pick up style trucks can be more expensive to transport your vehicle because they can make faster deliveries. You should pick the type that best meets your needs for shipping.
Which ever type of truck you decide to use for car transport you will still need to decide on what type of trailer that you want. If you have a classic car that you want shipped it is best to go with an enclosed trailer. An enclosed trailer will protect your car from the weather and road debris. Enclosed trailers will cost you more to ship your vehicle in then open trailers. They can also add additional safety and security for your vehicle.
If you decide to ship your car in an open trailer then you need to remember that your car will be partially or fully exposed to the weather and road debris. There are different types of open trailers, they are multi car trailers, and single car trailers. Multi car trailers are open trailers that may carry as many as twelve vehicles all at once. They may have the best prices but may take longer to transport your car to you, meaning slower delivery times.
Single car trailers are an open trailer used for delivering a car as quickly as possible. They are more expensive because of their fast delivery. These are the truck and trailer types used for transporting your car. You should compare them and find out information about them to help you determine which is best for your car shipping needs.
