When shipping a vehicle, there is one decision that every shipper has to make. Should I transport my car on an open car hauler or ship enclosed? For some it just comes down to the price. For some, their car is a classic and they want it enclosed. Because of less availability, shipping enclosed generally is a few hundred dollars more to ship a vehicle. An open car hauler is the most common type of hauler you see on the road. It transports vehicles open to the air and exposed to the elements, but also can haul many more vehicles then an enclosed hauler. They are usually cheaper to transport a vehicle with then enclosed haulers and usually hold 8-10 cars. Depending on availability you can sometimes request certain spots on the trailers.
