There are three types of auto transport in the winter: open auto transport, covered auto transport, and enclosed auto transport. Open auto transport is the most popular because it’s the cheapest. The vehicle is exposed to the elements and can get snow and ice on it. Covered auto transport keeps the car protected from the weather, but it’s more expensive than open transport. Enclosed auto transport is the most expensive and keeps the car completely protected from the weather.
Auto transports typically happen in the summer in Northern states when there isn’t harsh winter weather. However, there are a few weeks in January/February when companies will do transport because the roads are still clear. Auto transport can get provided all year long in more Southern states where the weather stays warmer throughout the year.
