Corsia Logistics hires only dependable auto transporters with experience in shipping luxury vehicles. The owners of such automobiles understand that shipping is part of maintaining and preserving their luxury automobile.
Expensive, high-end vehicles are often transported in a single car carrier, or at least enclosed trailer. Enclosed vehicle shipping is more expensive due to three main reasons - protection, insurance and availability.
Covered carriers offer full protection from road and weather elements.
They provide high insurance coverage, usually up to two million dollars.
By availability, we mean the total number of such trucks available in the US. Specialized enclosed car shipping trucks are fewer than the standard open car carriers.
The cost of shipping a luxury vehicle vary. It could be anywhere from $200 to as much as $2000. Expect even more if shipping to Hawaii, Alaska or internationally.
When you hire an enclosed carrier, expect the rates to be $300 to $500 more expensive than booking a standard open truck.
Door-to-door is the standard and preferred solution when transporting a luxury automobile, and does not cost extra.
Corsia Logistics provides the following car shipping services:
by carrier type: open & enclosed
by time-frame: standard & expedited
Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.
Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and high-end automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements. However, it could take a bit longer to book and schedule. It is more expensive as well.
Both open and enclosed trailers work for any luxury automobile, but before deciding what is best for your car, let us delve into the advantages of either.
When it comes to the time frame of delivery, you need to keep in mind that standard means no dates are guaranteed. Whether you book open or enclosed, dates are always estimated because in logistics many variables affect schedules and deliveries. Expedited service is an option, however. It is a solution that could guarantee pick-up or delivery dates, but it costs a premium.
Open auto transport is the standard vehicle shipping service. An open carrier is less expensive due to the fact that it is readily available across the US. Depending on the type of trailer, it can fit up to ten cars, which makes it efficient and fast. A disadvantage, however, is that it exposes your car to all road and weather hazards.
Enclosed auto transport is the preferred shipping option for luxury automobiles. An enclosed auto carrier provides complete protection from all weather or road elements. This, however, makes it more expensive. This option can also be a bit slower because there are fewer enclosed carriers in the country. Since such carriers carry high-end cargo they need a insurance up to one million dollars, and this contributes to the higher shipping rate.
Most enclosed carriers are equipped with hydraulic lift gates to hold the vehicle horizontal while loading and unloading. Enclosed trailers offer complete protection from road and weather elements. This is the safest method to transport a vehicle.
Every car carrier is required by law to provide cargo insurance. As mentioned, enclosed carriers usually provide up to a million dollar in cargo insurance. which is most than acceptable for most high-end automobiles. Yet, you need to make sure you are completely comfortable with the amount of car insurance your carrier is providing. Call our agents now and discuss your options and preferences.
