Local Car Shipping for Classic and Luxury Cars
When it comes to car shipping, you have two main options. You can choose the cheaper option of an open carrier, but if your vehicle is a classic, exotic, or luxury model, then you need an option that offers more protection. Local Car Shipping (LCS) offers enclosed car shipping services that can help to protect your ride and keep it in pristine condition on the trip.
Why Choose Enclosed Shipping Services?
If our car is a luxury model or collectible, enclosed car transport is a professional option. When you ship your car on an open carrier, there is always a chance that the paint will be damaged by rocks, road debris, sand, or dirt. Also, you do not want to risk damage by snow, sleet, road salt, or hail while in transport. An enclosed vehicle transport carrier provides a safe space for your car and will protect it from damage from the elements.
On an open carrier, your car might be held in place by chains that are connected to the frame. The problem with this is that the chains can rub across the exterior paint and cause scratches. Also, where they attach to the frame of the car, they can scratch any underbody protective coatings and can cause rust to develop. When using enclosed car transport, straps that are soft and strong will be used to secure your car to the transport. They hold your car securely and will not cause the small nicks that can lead to rust issues later.
Another potential source of damage to your car is loading and unloading. It is easy to get off course and scratch the sides of the car when loading on an open carrier. An enclosed transport that uses a lift will reduce the risk and make sure that the car is loaded and unloaded safely. We take every precaution to make sure that your vehicle is loaded and unloaded without even the slightest scratch.
What Types of Vehicles Do We Ship?
Not all cars require enclosed vehicle transport services, but it is an excellent choice for antiques, luxury cars, car auction collectibles, and special editions. We can also provide enclosed transport for certain types of historical military vehicles, vintage motorcycles, antique tractors, and boats.
Sometimes, you might choose enclosed car transport services for a vehicle that you intend to sell to preserve its value. Using an open car carrier is risky. In most cases, everything is fine, but why risk it? An enclosed car carrier gives you several extra layers of protection for your special vehicle.
