There are a couple of different ways to transport vehicles, and each involves a different sort of transport vessel. Amongst these distinctions are open and enclosed carriers. The open carrier is by far the most common sort of shipping vessel on the road. When you see tractor trailers hauling cars on the freeway, they do so via open carriers. The enclosed carrier is less common and harder to recognize. There is about 1 enclosed trailer for every 5 or 6 open trailers on the road. Enclosed trailers look like any other trailer being carried by an 18-wheeler, so it is difficult to recognize them on the road.
If you have a classic or exotic vehicle, you’ll definitely need to ship it on an enclosed trailer. Transporting vehicles via enclosed trailer is a much better means of shipping for these sorts of vehicles for several reasons. First, enclosed trailers will protect your vehicle against the elements. When you ship via open trailer, your vehicle will be exposed to weather and dust. Although this is not a particularly big concern for most vehicles, expensive or exotic vehicles are more costly to repair or detail, so to avoid the risk of this happening, it is best to ship enclosed.
Secondly, the tie-down method is much less strenuous on the chassis of exotic vehicles than open trailers are. Open trailers use rings on the undercarriages of most vehicles for tie-downs. As car manufacturers use the exact same method that we use to transport vehicles, they specifically build these rings into the chassis solely for the purpose of transport. Exotic cars, however, are often hand-made in very small quantities. Manufacturers therefore do not need these rings, and tie-downs must be made on the wheels. Open trailers can make tie-downs on the wheels of these vehicles, but it can potentially damage the vehicle in the process. Soft tie-downs are employed on enclosed trailer shipping, and this averts any damage to the chassis of the vehicle.
Finally, enclosed trailers can accommodate low clearance vehicles. To ship your vehicle open, there must be at least 6” of ground clearance. Vehicles are driven onto the carrier on ramps, and if the clearance is too low, then the bottom may be scraped. Vehicles shipped enclosed are loaded with hydraulic lifts, so ground clearance is not an issue!
