Open Car Shipping

Cost Effective • Fully Insured • Door to Door • 24/7 Updates


Affordable Car Transport

The number one reason individuals choose to drive their vehicles over hiring a vehicle transport company is cost. There is an assumption that driving your own vehicle will save you money. Truth is, long distances aren’t nearly as inexpensive as one might think. Fuel costs, wear and tear, tolls and food can rack up real quick. This is especially true if you add hotel stays and extra meals to your drive.

Our open car carriers are fully licensed, bonded and insured to transport your vehicle anywhere in the U.S. Their experience will ensure your vehicle arrives in the same condition it was when it was picked up. Have peace of mind knowing your vehicle is fully insured bumper to bumper. The experience combined with our service makes our open auto transport simple and stress-free.

What Is Open Car Shipping?

Open car shipping is the standard method of transporting vehicles in the auto transport industry. As the name suggest, autos are transported on open car carriers uncovered to weather and road conditions. Your vehicle is exposed to the same elements you encounter while driving, such as rain, sun, dust, grime, debris and others. If you don’t mind your vehicle getting a bit dirty during transport, open car transport is a perfect option for you.

Safeguard Vehicle During Open Transport

The number one reason for damage to cars in transport is negligence. Damages are a result of inexperienced carriers who fail to take proper safety measures when handling vehicles. 

Our carriers have over 15 years of experience transporting vehicles accompanied by outstanding safety records. We’ve earned a ‘Five Star Rated’ status by building an impressive reputation of safety and reliability.

Enclosed auto transport is by far the best way to protect your vehicle while in transport; however, preparing your vehicle for transport will also help minimize the risk of damage.  

1 | Wash Vehicle Prior to shipping your vehicle we suggest washing your auto to get a better visual on pre existing scratches, dings or dents.

2 | Record Damage Make notes of pre existing damages. You can use these notes to compare them with the driver’s inspection report.

3 | Take Pictures We advice taking dated pictures of your car from all angles and any preexisting damage.

4| Get Driver’s Acknowledgement Conduct a thorough inspection of the vehicle with driver. Have driver acknowledge any pre existing damage before releasing vehicle and acknowledge any new damage before accepting.
