Open Carrier Transport

The open car shipping service has a lot of benefits which attract customers a lot. What does attract people to book this service? What are its pros?
This type is widely used because of its low price and accessibility. When someone saves a big sum of money in order to cover the costs of an enclosed car shipping service, you do not need to do such efforts. The open auto shipping option costs much more cheaply than the enclosed one. The reason for such prices is that you share the price of gasoline with other customers who have their cars shipped together with yours. This is a very good opportunity to save up some money and spend it on yourself, your nearest and dearest.
So, the open car transportation option is cheaper than the enclosed one. It makes you able to manner your money smartly. What are the other pros and cons of this option? Next one is a door-to-door accessed option.
The open car shipping service provides its customers with door-to-door opportunity. If you need to have your auto to be relocated to one exact place, you will be given such an option. A carrier driver will come as close to the place you need as possible.
That’s why you will have no need to book one more carrier in order to ship your car into the exact place. Such an option will save up your money and important time.

The open auto shipping service is very popular, so that’s why it is widely used all over the world. Thus, every vehicle transportation company may offer you such an option. Moreover, this one is a perfect choice for any type of car, for any model. Everything you need is to provide a member of the chosen company with detailed information about your auto model type, and the distance it should be transported.
So, this option is included in a list of each car shipping company. Furthermore, no matter what model or type your car is, the open carrier will transfer a car of any size and even age.
Everything good has something bad. At first sight, perfect service will suit everyone in each situation. In fact, it is not so. The open car shipping service has some disadvantages:
If you want to use this service, you should be ready that your car will not be protected with covering above. It means that your car can face with different weather conditions (strong wind; hail; heavy rain; snow; fog and others).
You should prepare your car for the shipping process. Ask a member of the chosen car shipping company to provide you with a detailed consultation in order to get more information beforehand. It will help you to prevent the fatal consequences.
As a conclusion, we may say that this service does not suit each car. If your auto is very old and is not able to undergo long distance move, you should ask a member of the chosen car shipping company about the other ways of transportation your vehicle.
Your car may be damaged or become dirty because of an absence of any kind of covering. Since the car will be transferred to the open sky, it is possible that your car can be damaged during the shipping process. Of course, there are only a few cases when cars come damaged to the owner. As you can see, sometimes a covering has a great importance during car shipping process.

Cost of Our Open Carrier Transport Service
It has been proven that the given type of transportation always allows saving the sufficient sums of money. How does it work? More customers mean lower rates here. The thing is that the open carrier transport allows transferring several vehicles at once. The amount of vehicles usually varies from 7 up to 10 cars. That is why the cost of car shipping can be shared among the other people, using the same carrier transport.
It is important to add that a truck used in this case does not have a roof and four sides. As a result transported vehicles are not covered as well as fully protected from the weather (including rain, sun, snow etc.). Still, they are safe from any possible damages and delivered in ideal condition to their owners. Secondly, open auto carrier transport is much lighter in comparison with enclosed one. Thus, it does not consume so much fuel. In addition, it is capable of delivering vehicles a little bit faster. Moreover, it is much easier for drivers to undertake all the required inspections of the cars quickly during their transit.
