Enclosed Auto Transport with PAL

Enclosed Auto Transport with PAL

Shipping your car across the country can leave you wondering about the safety of your vehicle on the road. If you are worried about exposing your vehicle to unexpected weather conditions, choose enclosed auto transport with PAL. Below, we’ll discuss the benefits of enclosed auto transport and how you can save time and money using Preowned Auto Logistics.

How Enclosed Auto Shipping Works

When shipping your car or motorcycle across long distances, there are two types of trailer transportation options: open and enclosed. Open transportation trailers are the kind we are familiar with seeing on the highway, loaded with cars. This type of shipping is a safe and cost-effective way to move your vehicle.  Enclosed auto transport uses a sealed trailer to move the vehicles so that they are not exposed to the elements during transit. Many owners transporting motorcycles, sports cars, or luxury vehicles choose to use enclosed auto transport. It is available for anyone who wants to give their car an extra layer of protection during transportation.

Benefits of Using Enclosed Auto Shipping

Unlike open trailer transportation, enclosed auto shipping offers the highest level of protection for your vehicle. Your carrier will load your vehicle into a sealed transportation trailer to be completely protected from the elements. When you use an enclosed auto shipping service, you won’t have to worry about poor weather conditions affecting your vehicle during transportation.

Enclosed auto shipping is the safest way to move your car across the country for you and your vehicle. It is also a cost-effective alternative to driving your vehicle yourself, and it keeps your vehicle from depreciating due to added mileage or increased wear and tear.

If you have a specialty vehicle or an exotic sports car with low ground clearance, using an enclosed auto shipping service is the perfect way to move your vehicle. We make it easy to load and unload cars into the trailer for shipping whether the vehicle has low clearance, large tires, or other features that require accommodations.

What to Look for in an Enclosed Shipping Company

Choose an enclosed auto shipping company for moving your luxury vehicle or exotic sports car with a high level of insurance coverage. Additionally, you’ll need to consider how accommodating the company’s enclosed trailer is for your vehicle. If your car needs a lower clearance for loading or higher overhead clearance, ask your carrier how their trailer can make accommodations. The carrier you choose should be ready and willing to answer any questions about your vehicles’ transportation.

How to Prepare Your Car for Shipping

After you’ve found an enclosed auto shipping provider like Preowned Auto Logistics, gotten a quote, and settled on a pick-up and drop-off date, it’s time to get your car ready for transport.

Remove All Personal Items

Before pickup, you need to remove all of your personal items from the vehicle. This ensures that your car will not incur any interior damage in transit. Additionally, most auto shipping companies will require the vehicle to be empty before pick up.

Battery & Fuel

Your driver will need to load your car and unload it upon delivery, so be sure to have enough fuel in the tank for loading and unloading, but try not to ship it with a full tank. Be sure that your battery is charged before pick up to avoid further problems loading and unloading the car.

Check Tires & Test for Leaks

It’s essential to check your systems for leaks before transit and ensure all leaks are repaired. You should also fill up your tires before the car is loaded onto the trailer.
