There are different options for shipping your car when you move. If you are unable to drive the car to your new home yourself an automobile shipping company will surely be able to take care of that for you. The most common ways to transport automobiles is in an open-air trailers, an enclosed trailer or you can use a drive-away service.
- Open-Air Trailers: Your car is exposed to the elements, bad weather and debris but his service is generally the least expensive method.
- Enclosed Trailer: Your car will be loaded onto a closed trailer and will be protected from weather and debris from the road. This method is recommended for luxury vehicles, antique or collectible vehicles.
- Drive-Away Service: Technically, this method isn't a shipping service, but it may be an inexpensive alternative to sending your car in a trailer. Companies provide a driver to pilot your vehicle from the origin to the destination for you.
