Open auto transport services are provided by open auto carriers. Drivers of an open truck operate along all the major interstate highways on frequently-traveled routes. Many carrier companies will only run along specific interstates or through certain areas (such as major cities or metropolitan areas), and this is great because there are over 5,000 transporters on the roads today. That’s a lot of trucks. Since most of the carrier trucks on the road today are open transporters, they are the easiest to find and the cheapest to ship with.
Open transport exposes your vehicles to the elements, which is why we say it’s for customers who are shipping a car that they would drive along the open road. Any type of vehicle that is used as it was intended - to be driven - can and should be shipped on an open auto transport truck despite the risks. Less than 5% of all vehicles transported in a year receive any type of damage during open transport, and for those that did their damages were completely covered and repaired at the expense of the open auto transport carrier’s insurance provider.
Open transport is by far the cheapest method of transport in the industry today, mainly because of its availability. There are more open carriers on the road than any other type of auto transport truck, which helps keep their prices low and their availability high. This is why we are able to get your vehicle picked up as quickly as we can - with how many open carriers there are and how many we work with on a daily basis, finding a truck for you is no problem.
Every auto transport truck is required to be fully licensed and insured. This is a federal law that they must follow if they want to transport vehicles, and we make sure that all their licenses and insurance policies are up to date before we assign your vehicle to them. We work hard to make sure that all the carriers we work with are fully licensed and insured, and we also make sure that all their public information is available to you as well.
