Car Shipping for Simple Vehicle Transport
There are plenty of people around the country that enjoy restoring older, classic vehicles to beauty. Lots of money is put into these projects, making them big investments. Thus, when these vehicles need to be moved, special care must be taken. No matter why a vehicle needs to be relocated, car shipping can provide a much needed solution.

What is Car Shipping?

Car shipping is a service that is provided to consumers where a vehicle is transported to a new location by another vehicle. Most of the time, the vehicle that is being shipped is put on a large truck and then driven to the place where it needs to be delivered. There are a couple of different methods for doing this, and both are simple to understand and obtain. You can find a variety of companies out there, including Florida car shipping companies in Florida, Texas car shipping companies in Texas, and many other companies in other various states. Your needs will dictate the type of services that you hire.

Closed Shipping

One of these simple methods of transporting vehicles is called closed car transport. For those who are building, or have built, classic cars, this is the method of transport that provides the highest level of protection. Close transport methods offer totally enclosed spaces for your vehicle to travel in, thus protecting it from both the elements as well as any roadside debris that might end up hitting a vehicle in transit. The costs associated with this method of transport are generally higher than the open methods we will discuss next.

Open Shipping

Open vehicle transport is the most common and the cheapestmethod of shipping a vehicle. You can find these types of transports on the road in nearly every city in the country, as this is how dealerships obtain their vehicles. These large car carriers can haul five or more vehicles at a time, making it the most economical method of transporting a vehicle. While you know this, you must also know that vehicles transported in this manner will not be protected from any debris on the road. Unless you carry lots of insurance to cover your big investment, you should consider other options to ship your classic car.

No matter which method you choose, there are multiple companies out there just waiting for your business. You can easily get free quotes from these companies if you call them. Make sure that no matter what, you have insurance to cover the total loss of the car, just in case a rare accident does occur.
