Enclosed transport is a specialized service which aims to fully protect any transported vehicle. Due to its specialized nature, carriers usually charge more for transporting autos with it.
There are several variants of enclosed transport trailers, some are tailored towards the safe transport of high value cars like show cars, super cars or sports cars. Due to lowered suspension of high value vehicles, some enclosed trailers have a lift ramp which aids in their safe storage, those are the most expensive variations.
If you have a high valued auto which you’d like transported without a scratch or without exposing it to sunlight, rain or road chips, then the enclosed transport is a must. The more affordable variations have two levels which allows carriers to transport more than 1 vehicle at a time, however, due to their dimensions, only certain vehicles will fit in the allocated space.
Their biggest pro is that they fully protect autos from rain, hail and any other environmental effects which might damage the vehicle. They are also known to be a safer choice since they have security systems which prevent theft and vandalism.
The engineered ramps have a smaller angle, ideal for the pickup of vehicles with lowered or modded suspension which would otherwise be impossible to transport in a regular trailer.
Their height does not allow them to pass under certain bridges and infrastructure, which, depending on the drop-off location which you have chosen, may increase the cost of the job,. A big drawback to enclosed transport is its cost when compared to regular open transport trailer – high vehicles are also more difficult to transport in such a trailer and would require a private trailer to be allocate for them alone.
When booking an auto transport with USTrans.com, you need to specify in your order the type of vehicle you are looking to have transported, and the trailer you’d prefer.
No, they are not. These types of transport options are available to anyone who would prefer that their vehicle be transported out of sight or out of the rain and winds of the road.
Yes, they are far safer than open trailers. That is not to say that it’s not possible to break into one, however, due to the valuable nature of the cargo, and the higher cost of the service, carriers tend to be far more careful with where they drive and park the trailer.
When booking with USTrans.com, we will only allow the carriers with the aforementioned specialized equipment to bid for your particular order. There are professional companies who specialize solely with enclosed transport and ultimately those are those one who will be bidding.
Because it can’t pass under all bridge so the route needs to be chosen carefully. Also the upkeep of the trailer is far more expensive than that of open trailers, which is included in the overall pricing of the service.
I chose USTrans as my auto transport platform because they were the only ones who were honest with me. They didn’t set unrealistic expectations just to get my money, they were straightforward from day 1 and were very helpful which I really appreciate – here’s to a 5 star Google Review!!
I’ve had bad experience with auto transport companies before which made me reluctant trying and trusting anyone else. Long story short – USTrans talk the talk and walk the walk which is super rare nowadays. I’m extremely happy with the service, they chose a very nice carrier who kept in touch with me.
I live in LA, but had a show in Dallas and I didn’t want to rent a car so I had USTrans move my vehicle ahead of time so I could have I there. I’m generally satisfied with them, however, one thing that caught me of guard that the carrier changed the price at the last second, I don’t know who’s fault it is – we were able to clear everything up.
When I received the orders to move again, I knew that this time I had to have my car with me, can’t be without a vehicle. So I found USTrans, they were very helpful in finding a suitable carrier, my moving date was just a week away and I had to use expedited shipping – good thing the military covers the expense.
I’m kind of relieved that it’s over. It’s my first time using an auto transport service across the country and I was scared that the car would get stolen and I’d never see it. Honestly it was a sigh of relief when I saw the semi pull up with my civic – it was a sight for sore eyes – glad I chose USTrans because they were honest and upfront with them from the get go – great service.
Moving a car from Hawaii to mainland US would be a nightmare without the services of USTrans. I don’t really know the details, but by the end of it I felt like I swam the distance myself – good thing the carrier was upfront and they let me know whenever they were delays – you can’t control everything even if you wanted to.
The overall experience of moving a car is super stressful, but USTrans were there to assist. The only issue I had was that they were a little late to reply to some of my messages, however, aside from that they were fantastic – I could not be happier.
USTrans helped me get back on my feet. After I lost my business, life’s been kinda hard, but speaking with the customer support people kinda brought back some enthusiasm back to me, that’s how you do business. These guys helped me move my van to Minnesota so I can start over. Thank you!
So I came back from Europe, but didn’t have the time go get my car back, so I used USTrans to assist and they were fantastic. I don’t really know how they select the carriers, but whoever made their selection process should get a medal – the carrier was fantastic, super organized and they were really honest with the delays – great job, USTrans!
