Auto transport is the shipping of cars and other vehicles from one place to another. Cars can be transported by open car carriers or enclosed car carriers. Open car carriers are less expensive, but they expose the cars to the elements. Enclosed car carriers are more expensive, but they protect the cars from the weather and road debris.
Auto transport can be done state-to-state or across the country. State-to-state shipping is cheaper, but it takes longer because the car has to go through multiple checkpoints. Across-country shipping is more expensive, but it’s faster because the car only goes through a few checkpoints.
