Enclosed auto shipping carriers are one of two primary auto transport trucks that operate on the road. Unlike open auto shipping carriers, enclosed carriers completely enclose the vehicles that they ship in a container, to better protect them during transport. Most enclosed transports are higher-end cars, such as exotic cars, rare or hard-to-find cars, or expensive vehicles in general. Winter is generally a busier time for enclosed shipments due to the weather. The larger Auctions around the country will also tie up many enclosed units during their show and sale dates.
Enclosed auto transport carriers charge more than open carriers to transport vehicles, mainly because they are drastically more expensive to buy, own, and operate than open carriers. Price difference could be anywhere from 25-50% more than an open car carrier.
