Car Shipping

Open Car Transport

One mode of open auto transport involves a semi-truck bed that is configured so that many cars can be stacked on it. You will often see them on highways taking new cars to auto dealerships. When it is time for you to move, an open carrier may be just the thing you need to get your vehicle to your new location.

There are several options available to you if you decide to ship your car. Auto transport companies often offer both open and closed car carriers. However, many people do not realize the benefits of opting for open auto shipping.


When pricing out moving a vehicle, you will find that open transport is less expensive than closed. That is because the bed itself is less costly to create, and it is lighter than the sealed containers. Because they weigh less, the engine does not have to work as hard to move the load. Less motor work translates into less fuel expense.

Another reason open carriers are cheaper is that the driver can haul more vehicles— sometimes quite a few more. It all depends on the closed carriers’ configuration, but open carriers tend to be able to transport more.

Save Your Car’s Wear and Tear

Driving your car or truck across the country is going to put some wear and tear on the tires. Not only will your tires be worn, but the motor and other mechanical parts will also get plenty of use and mileage. Automobile parts can only last so long, and putting many miles on them wears them out.

It might be a better option to save your miles and wear for times when you are actually using your vehicle versus when you are just transporting it. Shipping autos can save money in the end.

Your Time

If you ship your auto, it can free your schedule up. Moving takes time— delegating some of the tasks, such as moving the vehicle, can give you time to pack up your house and move into your new one.

If the transport is going to take a few days, it might give you the chance to take a mini-break and meet up with the carrier later. Take the time to stop on your way to sightsee and relax, or plan a more eventful trip. If you choose to fly somewhere, have the return flight land at your new destination. Your vehicle will be there, and you got to use your time for something other than sitting behind the wheel.

Multi-Car Family

Today, most families have at least two cars. If your family wants to drive together, have your other vehicles shipped. This will take the hassle out of trying to stay together on the road and keeping track of one another. If you are traveling with babies or young children, having an extra helper will come in handy, especially during long drives.


Often, open car transports deliver quicker than closed carriers. There are not as many of the closed trucks on the road, so you may have to wait for one to get an open position. During that time, you will have to store your vehicle somewhere if you have to leave.

Most of the time, our open transports can be booked at your convenience, and you may not have to wait at all.
