Top-Load Placement Auto Transport is when you have your vehicle stacked up on the upper deck of the car shipping carrier which keeps it elevated away from road debris but exposed to natural elements of the air.
Some companies provide this spot for a small fee ranging anywhere from $100 and up depending on size/weight of your vehicle.
In order to win business companies have to make sure their car transport rates are competitive, which means they have to find other ways to make more profit.
Charging standard car shipping rates in line with all the other companies is one way to attract customers, and selling them upgrades is a good way to make more profit.
While having your car loaded towards the top of the carrier can have its huge benefits, having this spot can also have its negatives affect.
Some of the cons could depend on the driver's level of experience. Other bad aspects could be the type of weather the driver may travel through.
Is Top Rack For You?
😊 A common issue when shipping a car on an open multi-car trailer is whether your car should be on the top rack or bottom rack. Both have their own advantages, and disadvantages as well.
Cars on the top rack, are more inclined to road hazards but safer from any potential dripping or leaking from road vehicles.
There may also be a possibility that the car on the top rack can get hit branches if the auto hauler drives or pulls into areas with trees.
Vehicles on the lower rack are safer from debris along the road, but they are the ones exposed to possible oil leaks or harmful drippings from cars on the upper deck.
Most auto shipping companies offer a top rack placement guarantee for an extra fee.
In the end, the decision is yours.
