Open Carrier Car Shipping
When opting for open car transport, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. One of the main considerations is the exposure of vehicles to external elements during transit. Unlike enclosed transport, where vehicles are protected from weather conditions, open carriers leave vehicles exposed to the elements. While most carriers take precautions to minimize risk, vehicles may be exposed to rain, dust, or road debris during the journey. It is important to note that damage from external factors is extremely rare, but customers should be aware of the potential risks.
The car transport process typically begins with contacting a reputable car shipping company such as American Car Transporters. We have a proven track record, appropriate licensing, and insurance coverage. American Car Transporters has established a lengthy list of reliable carriers over the past decade plus. After receiving a quote and agreeing to the terms, the vehicle will be scheduled for pickup. The carrier will arrive at the designated location, conduct a thorough inspection of the vehicle, and document its condition on a bill of lading or inspection report.
Once loaded onto the carrier, the vehicle will be secured using straps, wheel restraints, or other methods to prevent shifting or damage during transit. Throughout the journey, the driver will monitor the vehicle’s condition and provide updates to the customer. Upon arrival at the destination, the vehicle will be unloaded, and another inspection will take place to ensure it is in the same condition as when it was loaded.
