Carrier Types

In this section we will show you the different types of trucks and trailers you can expect to haul your vehicle(s). Remember some of these trucks are large so they might need to meet you outside your neighborhood. Thanks for looking

Open Wedge Trailer: Usually this trailer type will have soft tie downs instead of chains on the frame. Most will carry 3 cars but some now carry 5 cars.

 

Open 6-8 Car Trailer: Chain tie-downs on most

 

Open 9-11 Car Trailer: Chain tie-downs and one or more cars will travel at an angle. Mostly used for cross-country hauls.

 

Enclosed Trailer: Chain and soft tie-downs. Carrier for exotic cars or vehicles of value.

Open & Enclosed Auto Carriers

With Houston Auto Shipping you have options to ship your vehicle any way you want. Open transports are the most affordable way to ship your vehicle however they are not for every vehicle type. Open car carriers or open trailer transports can take more vehicles, they can transport larger vehicles, and they hold less insurance therefore open carriers can charge less per vehicle. Enclosed car carriers can’t carry as many vehicles but they offer more insurance, and they are less likely to have any damage caused by rocks or any flying objects. The enclosed transport usually costs about 50% more money when compared to an open auto transport. Many customers think your vehicle is better off on an enclosed carrier because of rock chips.. ect. However all dealerships trade new vehicles on open carriers with no problems and these are new vehicles.
