Tips for an effective car transport

While you are moving to a new place, one of the important things to consider is the car transport. This becomes more significant if you are shifting to a far distant and are not planning to drive down in your car. You must know that there are specialized vehicle transport services that would provide responsible car delivery upon hiring. The car transporters usually pick up your car and deliver it at your new destination. The services would be done using different methods of automobile transport namely open trailers, enclosed trailers and self transport.

In the open trailer method, usually around 8 to 10 cars are hauled at a time across various distances. These trailers are generally about 14 feet high and 80 feet long. This can be considered as the least expensive option among all other options. But chances are high that your car will be exposed to the elements since these trailers are open. Sometimes you may have to wait till the car transport company gets as many cars to be transported in the same destination direction pr location as yours. This is because at a single time only a few cars are transported. However the trailers can only travel on roads that can afford their weight and cannot take sharp turns very easily because of their length.

The enclosed trailer method is almost similar to the open trailer method but the only difference is that the trailers would be enclosed. If you want to transport rare and expensive cars, you can make use of this method. By using this method, the car would not be exposed to the elements during the transit. This is the reason why the enclosed method is considered as a safe and easy way of car transport. There is only one downside for this; the method is quite expensive.

Then there is yet another car delivery method known as the self transport where you would be the one doing the hauling process. There would not be any help from the auto transporters and therefore if you have not driven a trailer before, you need to be very careful. Before you start the journey, it is better advised to ask for hints and go for test drive on trailers. Usually in self transport you would be renting the trailer from a company. You need to clarify everything and make sure that you are fine with their terms and conditions.

Once you have made a decision regarding the transportation methods, you need to prepare for the process. It is always better to give the company at least four weeks of advance time period for moving the car since they would moving several cars in the same destination and need to arrange everything. Also you need to make sure that the car is insured by the automobile transport service. The car transporters usually check the vehicle for any scratches or dents before hand and would make a report based on the observation. You need to ensure that the car is insured against damage and theft.
