Enclosed vs. Open Transporters

At New World Auto Transport we often get asked, what's the difference between an open and enclosed transporter. Because we use both types of carriers quite frequently, we not only know the many differences, we also know which transport truck is the perfect option for your vehicle!

Carrier Insurance

Insurance for your auto transport carrier is a huge component when determining between open and enclosed carriers. Open transporters usually carry $250,000 to $300,000 in insurance to cover any damages that might occur during travel. Enclosed transporters, on the other hand, carry much higher insurance - anywhere from 3 to 3.5 million in insurance coverage! This is to protect more expensive vehicles that usually require the service of an enclosed carrier.

New World Auto Transport only works with insured carriers that have the highest ratings, and we even receive information about them from their insurance providers on a daily basis. We also work closely with Registry Monitoring Insurance Services, an organization that tracks our carriers' insurance information and verifies their coverage so you always know your vehicle is shipped by the very best!

Choosing the Right Carrier for Your Car

In addition to different insurance coverages, the open and enclosed carriers New World Auto Transport uses to ship our customers' vehicles are also different in how they transport cars. Open carriers are the most abundantly used transport trucks and are $300 to $500 cheaper than an enclosed carrier. We provide everything from a single car open transporter to even a six to seven car open transporter! Enclosed carriers are a little more expensive but are certainly worth the investment if the vehicle you're shipping is a luxury or specialty car. There are two types of enclosed carriers: a soft-side carrier and a hard-side carrier. Soft-side carriers are made of canvas material and aren't totally enclosed, but are cheaper to ship your vehicle. Our hard-side vehicles are totally enclosed and the lift gate option is perfect for low profile cars like race cars, Corvettes, Lamborghinis and other similar vehicles. Transporting fun fact: usually you'll see an abundance of soft-side transporters in the upper West Coast area whereas enclosed transporters are usually found in the upper East Coast. No matter where you are or what type of vehicle you want to have shipped, New World Auto Transport will find the perfect transporter for you!
