Open transport means that your vehicle will be outdoors, on an open auto transport trailer, exposed to the elements of travel. There are several types of transport vehicles that can provide open transport auto shipping, from single car trailers to trucks capable of towing 10 or more cars. Open auto transport is the most cost effective way to ship your car to another state.
Enclosed car transport is a type of hauler that adds protection for vehicles by shipping cars in a closed container protected from outside elements. It's a great car shipping option if you need to transport a classic car or luxury car. Enclosed car shipping will cost you more as a premium service but will prove to be worth every penny.

Is Open Auto Transport Carrier Really Safe?
That all depends on the auto carrier which has been assigned to your order.
In all cases, any auto transportation provider operating within the United States of America should have the required cargo insurance policy enforced by the F.M.C.S.A.
This means that your vehicle should be fully protected against any damage inflicted during transport.
Be sure to ask for insurance documentation prior to pick up. The insurance docs could be easily requested by the auto transportation logistics coordinator who is responsible for dispatching your vehicle to the auto carrier. Make sure to check the expiration date on the insurance policy and also reassure yourself that your vehicle is completely insured during transport. With all these details in order regarding the insurance during shipment, your vehicle should be in good hands as the last thing anyone wants is an added claim to their policy. This assures you that the driver will take care of your vehicle with the respect it deserves.
What TYPE OF CARS Can Be Loaded?
Pretty much any standard sized vehicle in the category of sedan, regular sized trucks, normal sized S.U.V.'s and even some vans again depending on the size which are determined by length and height.
The total size of a vehicle able to fit on an open carrier would depend on the other vehicles which would be loaded along with it. If you have seen an open auto trailer, you will notice that the top level can be adjusted to different heights which would allow for the loading and unloading of many different types of vehicles. In any case, expect the vehicle to be strapped down to the frame of the trailer.
Thick leather straps or light chains are used around the wheelbase and securely fastened to the metal frame of the open-air auto carrier trailer. This avoids the vehicle from bouncing around during transport and ensures that the unit will be delivered in the same condition as it was picked up.
Please Note: Low clearance vehicles may require alternate methods.
Can Open Carrier Transport Save Me Money?
When shipping your vehicle on an open-air auto transporter, you are most likely being transported along with six to sometimes nine other vehicles which are all loaded and secured. Having so many vehicles on a load to deliver allows the driver to ease up on the total rates per unit.
Of course rates are all dependent on location, gas rates, vehicle size and weight.
The higher the demand for service on the route you require will determine the total cost of the transportation in question. Rates will always fluctuate as they reflect gas prices, mainly diesel fuel.
There is never really any set rates for shipping a vehicle in this industry as everything in the end revolves around fuel prices. Even when gas prices may be at their highest, going open auto hauler will always be your safest and most affordable option when shipping a car state-to-state.
