Car Transport: What Is It And Why Is It Essential?

Car transportation, also known as delivery or vehicle transport, is a service that helps people move vehicles from the point of pick up to the point of destination by road transport trucks.

Once the person has selected a company, they can proceed with ordering their shipment. They provide transportation companies with information such as the type of transport desired, the date or time period when the vehicle should arrive, and the pick-up and drop-off point of their vehicle. 

From there, the auto transport company ensures that the transporter brings the customer's vehicle as close to its destination as possible within the allotted time.

Type of transportation

There are two main types of vehicles, open and closed transport.

Open transportation exposes the vehicle to the weather by its name on an open platform or trailer. Open transportation is the most common mode of transportation and is suitable for various types of vehicles depending on the comfort of the owner.

Closed transportation is less common and more expensive than open transportation. With closed haulage, the vehicle is transported in a closed trailer or container to protect it from weather conditions and road debris. 

Due to the added level of protection, enclosed transport is best suited for luxury vehicles, classic models or new cars. However, it can be used for any car if the car owner wants it.
