There are many benefits to using enclosed auto transport, but when you take this route, it will be important for you to choose a carrier that can actually do the job, and get your vehicle to the destination unharmed. We have to face the fact that vehicles face a number of different dangers and challenges when they are shipped in this manner.

Facing the Facts

Enclosed Auto TransportWhen your vehicle is being shipped, it is out of your hands entirely; you never know what might happen. The following are some of the concerns that have been raised in the past:

TrafficOkay, you can’t predict the flow of traffic or the skill of other drivers on the road. If you could, the highway would be an entirely different place. In any sort of traffic situation you run the risk of a collision. The reality isn’t pleasant, but it can happen, and it’s definitely something to consider.

Hazardous ConditionsYou can face hazardous conditions on the road, as can the carrier transporting your vehicle. These conditions could be brought on by the roads themselves, for example, there could be potholes or other deformities that make the ride less than enjoyable. If your vehicle is not secured in the carrier properly the it could feel the full force of these hazards, and that’s really not something that you want.

DelaysThis might not affect your vehicle quite as much as the other issues you could run into, but they still present a bit of a problem. Inexperienced drivers can become lost, or they might not take efficient routes. You need your vehicle to arrive on time, and the wrong driver can completely throw a wrench to the gears, so to speak.

These three problems are common in enclosed auto transportation, as you are probably well aware, but the question, is how do you solve them? How do you work around them? If you are transporting a classic car or a motorcycle, these are not things that you want find yourself dealing with. Take the following into account when you are dealing with enclosed trailer transport.

Keep it Closed

One of the biggest mistakes you can make with this form of transportation is failing to go with an enclosed service. There are of course several services that use an open trailer, and while that is great for very short distances, over the long haul, it can have some pretty nasty results, especially if your driver encounters weather. For classic cars and high end sports cars, you should always go the enclosed route.

Insure Yourself

We can’t say it enough: get insurance. If insurance is offered by the carrier, get it. If you can get insurance from an external carrier, get it. You can have the best driver in the world, and things can still go wrong, keep that in mind!

Choose the Right Company

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
