The most popular method of shipping cars is open-air transport. There are two common types of open-air carriers. Most moves are completed with large 8-10 car carriers. Smaller carriers that hold 2-3 cars are used for shorter, local moves. Since open-air carriers are more frequently used, there is typically more frequent availability for them. You should consider enclosed transportation methods when shipping classics, luxury cars, or exotics. It is always a good idea to book enclosed transport well in advance, as limited carrier availability means enclosed transport guarantees maximum protection from the elements.
