So, you want to have your car transported a specific location huh? And
this is your first time? You must be tentative because you’ve never done
this before and you don’t want anything to go wrong, especially due to
the significant investment your car has been. Transporting your
automobile doesn’t have to be a nightmare. A thorough understanding of
how it works will help you ease your mind of the problems that may result
of such.

1. Trailers

There are many transport trailer options, the most popular among these
types is the open carrier transport. The open carrier transport, aside
from being popular, is the least expensive mode of transporting
automobiles. Usually, your automobile will be transported on haulers like
the ones used to deliver new cars. These trailers have a capacity of
eight to ten cars. They are around 80 feet long and 14 feet high. With
their immense size they are limited to traveling on major roads that are
free of possible obstacles such as trees and such. They are also limited
to traveling on roads that can support its weight. These trailers cannot
maneuver easily on tight turns.

This is a good way to transport automobiles - the only downside is that
your car may not be that well protected against the elements, dust, and
wear and tear usually associated with highway travel.

2. Enclosed Trailer Transport
This is by far the most expensive option but all that cost is worth it
because your car will likely be in better shape than if it were
transported via an open transport carrier. This type of transport is the
best for rare, exotic, or expensive cars. Automobiles to be displayed
during car shows are usually traveled using this type of transport. It
provides the safest, most secure method of auto transport.

3. Self-Transport

There are other people who prefer to transport their vehicles themselves.
This is the riskiest way to transport your vehicle, especially if you are
unskilled in such operations. Usually this is performed by renting a
trailer and driving the trailer yourself.

If you do choose this type of transport, you may want to learn more about
the trailer and its operation. You should ask the owner for instruction
and hints on operating such an automobile.

- Always discuss your automobile with the transport service before you
agree to the terms
- Make sure the service knows what your car looks like, its dimensions,
and possible problems that may be encountered when delivering
- Make sure everything is understood before closing the deal

4. Be aware of the pick up time and transport time

Pick up time is the amount of time it takes from receipt of the order to
transport until your automobile is loaded unto the trailer. This time is
usually 2 and 10 days. Transport services appreciate a three day
allowance to find a trailer and assign your car to that trailer.

Transit time will take about 8-10 days. This depends on the destination
and route taken. These trailers will usually carry about ten automobiles
at the same time. And as me makes the necessary stops to deliver each
automobile, he could use up a lot of time. So, it would do well to be
patient during these times.

There are also deals such as guaranteed delivery and express service.
These deals will make sure your car gets delivered earlier, but will cost
much more. If money is no question, then by all means use every method
possible to keep your automobile safe and secure.
