What is enclosed auto transport?
This is transporting a car in a way that protects it from the elements. Enclosed car transport protects your car from weather, rocks, theft and other damage. Enclosed auto transport can cost more than open. However, these companies have the tools and experience necessary to take extra care of your car.
How long should does enclosed auto transport take?
Shipping time all depends on which enclosed car transport company you use. Here are some very basic ideas to help you along the way. Make sure however you contact your vehicle shipping carrier for their actual scheduled times.
East Coast to West Coast â€“ approx. 7 to 10 days
Midwest to East Coast â€“ approx. 5 to 7 days
South to the North â€“ approx. 5 to 7 days
All shipping times are estimated. Do not base your car shipping on these examples without first contacting your enclosed vehicle transport company for assistance.
Why does a truck or shipment cost more then a regular car?
Enclosed vehicle transport shipments are based on weight that a truck can legally carry â€“ this is why these is a small price difference between $75.00 and $150.00 for a regular truck for S.U.V.
How is a car transport supposed to work?
Enclosed auto transport is very simply â€“ You should receive a call from the vehicle shipping company anywhere from 12 to 24 hours in advance of your pick up date. The driver will arrive & review the vehicle with you before is loaded on the vehicle transport trailer. The reverse happens at the delivery point, the driver calls in advance, you’ll walk around the vehicle for damage and take delivery.
How many days in advance do I need to make arrangements for my enclosed auto transport?
It is our recommendation that you book your order at least 7 to 10 days in advance, however, if you need to move your car immediately, we will work with you on an individual basis to accommodate your auto shipping needs. We also offer next day pickup.
Can I ship my car with personal items in my vehicle on the enclosed auto transport trailer?
Enclosed car transport carriers are not licensed to carry household goods or personal items, therefore it is not recommended to leave items of that nature in your vehicle. Factory issued equipment and after market items permanently installed are allowed to be left with the vehicle and will be noted accordingly on the truck bill of landing.
Do enclosed auto transport quotes include insurance in their estimates?
Most auto shipping companies do include some insurance in their basic price but you should get a copy of it and definitely read the fine print. Many enclosed car shipping companies offer more insurance for a fee at a higher price. We always recommend that you keep your car insurance active should anything out of the ordinary happen during vehicle shipping.
Does my car have to be in working condition during enclosed auto transport?
It depends. Some enclosed car transporter companies are prepared for “inops” or inoperable cars, others are not. We always recommend that you communicate your needs and the condition of your car with the enclosed auto shipping company when you book.
Will the enclosed auto transport companies deliver my car Door To Door?
That is not only our name, but also our intent. There are some cities and subdivisions where it is illegal to bring a large truck in local roads. You also have to consider low handing trees and power lines, which can do severe damage to our cars. In that case, we will determine an alternate place where the enclosed vehicle transport truck will be allowed or safe.
Can I ship more than one car?
Yes. In fact, many car shippers will actually have your car on trailers with up to 8 to 10 other cars for at least part of the way.
Will I be charged by size?
Yes â€“ large cars, trucks and SUV’s will cost more money than a standard mid-size or compact car. Some SUV’s are so large that they equal the weight and size of two cars!
Do I have to be present at the pick up and delivery?
Most enclosed auto transport companies will require that either you or someone designated by you be present to go through an inspection and sign off the vehicles condition.

Reviews from Our Customers
“My car has arrived! The driver delivered about 4:00 pm this afternoon. Considering I called you about this auto transport move on Friday morning and it is now delivered over 500 miles away and it is only Sunday, this was an amazingly quick move. I have purchased several cars online, but I have never had auto shipping experience that was this fast and affordable. Thanks for making this move a great experience. I will call you on all future moves.” – Roy
"We used Door to Door to move our mini-van from PA to TX. I selected Door to Door after a few weeks of online research and contact with over 15 different car transport companies. I eliminated every company with poor reviews and poor BBB ratings. Door to Door met my initial criteria and I was pleased with my phone conversations with JR. They assigned a driver who was courteous, professional and just plain nice. We felt very comfortable with the driver and knew he would deliver the van on-time and without issue. We were very pleased overall and would not hesitate to use Door to Door again when we need car shipping in the future." - Jennifer
"Our vehicle transport experience with Door To Door Auto Transport was very positive. The couple that actually transported the car were very friendly and kept in touch with us so that we knew exactly when the car would be picked up. If I ever need a vehicle shipping company again, I will call Door To Door Auto Transport." – Shari
"I used Door To Door Auto Transport simply because of their good reviews. I was very nervous to transport my car but I did not have time to deliver my daughter’s car to her. This was my first experience shipping a vehicle and I was impressed! They picked the car up and delivered it earlier than I planned! They picked the car up on Thursday and they delivered it at 1:00a.m. Sunday instead of Monday during working hours. We did not expect this and it turned out to be good for us. The transport overall was very fast. Lola was very good and pleasant. The price was just right." – MyLe
"Linda was very nice and genuine and Door to Door did what they said they would do. The transactions were quick and easy and the driver actually arrived much earlier than I expected. Auto shipping across the country is expensive, so regardless of price (which this was one of the cheaper ones I found), if you want the job done well, go with Door to Door!" – Reggie
