The Most Bizarre Car Transport In The World

The Most Bizarre Car Transport In The World

The world is full of strange things waiting to be discovered. Does a guy with a Ferrari, which is actually a bike, sound weird enough? No? Great! Today I have some interesting stuff to show you! If something is right up Corsia’s alley, that would be car transport. But we only dwell in the realm of the regular. As it turns out, there are many bizarre auto transporters, and we are about to cover them.

 

How did auto carriers look like in the past?

Before we dive deep into the modern wonders of auto transport, let’s check out how things were in the past.

We’ll start with this not-so-strange-looking carrier.

Today it seems a bit funny, but all in all pretty regular. It’s not really that impressive, is it? Let’s step it up a notch!

  1. Straight Out Of A Horror Movie

You know what really interests me? Creepy stuff. Like this abandoned transport. Imagine what the story behind it is.

First, they found it in the middle of what? The woods? How did it even get there? Second, it has obviously stayed there for a while. Did no one care to search for it? Or if people had found it earlier, why had no one reported it?

Of course, the story could be much more trivial than what my imagination came up with. But where would the fun be in that? I’d stick with my idea, thank you.

  1. Vintage Racecars And Where To Find Them

There is something charming about old stuff. Sure, it’s hard to live without the comfort of today, but the past is just beautiful. And this racecar hauler does it for me. Granted, it is not exactly weird, but it’s fascinating.

At first glance, I thought it was a truck carrying a truck. The color matching really got me. But the whole picture just shines. Look at the detail on both vehicles. I bet riding in such a car is awesome!

  1. Older Is Smaller

The first carrier I showed you wasn’t too big, right? I figured this must be a trend with older auto transporters. So I decided to dig deeper but to no avail. I couldn’t find anything truly massive.

Instead, it was this petite hauler that caught my attention. If you take the trailer away I think it could easily pass for a pickup truck. But look close enough and you’ll see that it’s actually carrying pickups!

I don’t know why this makes me so happy. Maybe the modern age has so much grandeur about it that we forget to appreciate the small things. And that’s small. Comparatively, at least.

How creatively have auto transport carriers evolved?

Okay, it’s time to leave the past behind. But we won’t jump to the inventions of today’s technology just yet. Instead, we will enjoy what our fellow humans have come up with.

Be warned! The things you are about to see may look a bit alien to you, but I assure you – those are human inventions.

  1. Pickup, Trailer, Hauler, What?

I simply don’t know how to describe this picture.

For starters, the pickup must have quite a lot of power to haul all of that. And let’s ask the real question here: can it even move? And I don’t mean to drive in a straight line. Perhaps that’s possible. But what about turns?

Let’s be honest – this thing was probably done simply to shock people. It probably hasn’t moved much at all. At least that’s my guess. Call me a killjoy, but I just don’t buy it.

  1. A Real Car Carrier

I have no doubts that mankind’s intelligence knows no bounds. Yet I do think that some people go a bit overboard in the MacGyver department. This resourceful solution will serve as my example.

The entire thing brings up tons of questions. How did someone even think this would work? How did they manage to get the car on top of the pickup? How did they secure it there? Is the single strap really the only thing holding it? How far did it even manage to get before stopping in the emergency lane?

But do I want to know the answers to these questions? Maybe not. It is known that awe and fascination go away when you find out what’s really going on.

Modern Dreams of Grandeur

It’s finally time to pay attention to auto transport of the modern day. But don’t think that I will show you any regular carriers. Today, we are talking big, huge… well, see for yourself.

  1. How To Carry A 240-ton Mining Truck

If you are not familiar with what a mining truck is, take a look this one.

And that’s not even the biggest one. Of course, these monsters cannot be driven on the road. Do you have any idea how they get them to mining sites?

One way would be to disassemble them. But even when disassembled, you need quite a lot of power to carry the separate parts.

However, there’s one company that takes the challenge of carrying a 240-ton monster. Because you haven’t really seen it all, before you see a truck hauling a mega truck.

This Mercedes hauler has a capacity of 250 tons. Now, this truly makes me admire the minds of engineers who came up with such a thing.

  1. When One Isn’t Enough

Sometimes things get hard. You have a giant thing to move, but your trucks don’t have the capacity. What do you do? You go double.

I admit this isn’t as impressive as the one above, but I still had to give credit. After all, if I see that in real life, I will stop and stare.

However, I know that people are sometimes hard to satisfy, so I have prepared! If you didn’t really enjoy the double haulers, perhaps this one will work for you. Moving on!

  1. 1,000 Wheels of Steel

The next thing I’ll show you is not an auto transporter, but I had to mention it. I am talking about a giant tank carrier. Sadly, I don’t know what’s inside the tank.

I hope you’ve noticed which company makes the trucks. Perhaps Mercedes has taken the challenge to manufacture machines that can carry a planet one day. Or at least the moon.

Does China have a ‘monopoly’ on weird haulers?

After I’ve shown you such weird and interesting haulers, I have something to admit. Most of them weren’t truly auto transporters.

I wanted to find bizarre carriers from all over the world, but the reality is that China has a monopoly on weird haulers. And I’m not going to keep them all for myself. Enjoy!

  1. Long Doesn’t Even Describe It

We will start simple. This truck is deemed the longest car transport in the world. The entire thing is longer than 90 feet. It can supposedly fit 15 cars, but it’s only a single level trailer.

I don’t know if it’s still in operation, as the trailer seems to be in a rather bad condition. But I hope this first example of China’s weirdness has impressed you.

  1. Two And A Half Dozen

Efficiency may as well be China’s motto. Because if you want to transport 30 cars, you will need more than a single carrier. Not in China! This two-level, double-width truck does it all!

The interesting thing here is that officially such vehicles are forbidden there. Unfortunately, no one cares and no one enforces that law.

And because they are too big to enter a city, most of the time the vehicles are unloaded outside of town. Then car dealership employees take them one by one to a place, where they can sell them.

  1. Countless Shades of Crazy

We are slowly getting to the territory of complete madness. Remember that pickup that carried a car? Well, China isn’t far behind. How about a truck on a truck on a truck?

If you think this is an exception, you are wrong. Apparently, this is a common way to get bigger vehicles across the country. There are many examples of this happening all over China.

Sometimes things get even worse. Three trucks may sound scary, but how about ten? Nope, nothing weird, move along.

But you know, different people have different opinions. Maybe you think that’s not dangerous at all. Like there are no liabilities to trying that.

Since the country is all about cheap solutions, the police rarely stops such attempts. However, even they have a limit to how much craziness they permit.

What other kind of auto transport is out there?

To finish off our list of crazy and bizarre car transporters, I have something special for you. It is 656 ft. long, 118 ft. wide, and doesn’t travel on roads. Meet the Höegh Target.

Where do you think it comes from? You guessed it – China! However, it’s registered to a Norwegian company, so I don’t think that counts.

This thing can carry up to 8,500 vehicles, which means about 280 auto transports by Chinese standards. Piece of cake!

It is meant to transport vehicles from China all the way to different parts of Europe with an end stop in the UK. Then it goes back and does it all over again. I don’t even want to think about the insurance this thing has.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
