Closed transport (also called enclosed transport) stores your vehicle with the most protection available, away from outside forces and weather. If you are shipping a 1968 Camaro SS with original paint, then enclosed transportation is the way to go. Other trailer types will be cheaper, but sometimes the cheapest option isn’t the best one. Antique transporters will provide the option to move your car either by enclosed or open trucks and trailers. Transporting using enclosed car transport saves your vehicle from all the things it may encounter on the road, such as dirt, debris, moisture, and weather.
Enclosed transport is ideal for classic cars, vintage cars, expensive sports cars, model cars, and racecars. Moving high value vehicles requires special work to secure and protect them during the shipping process. Check out our guide on shipping antique and classic cars cars for more information.
