-Open transportation – Your vehicle is exposed to the weather on a flatbed or trailer

-Closed transportation – Your vehicle is located in a trailer or closed container that is protected from the elements. Closed transportation is usually more expensive.

Once you have decided whether you want an open or closed option, you can decide exactly what type of road transport you need: –

Container: A container holds a maximum of one or two cars and fully protects your vehicle from the elements. Due to their small payload, you will receive your car faster than if you ordered a multi-level carrier. 

But there are also those that are more expensive because of additional maintenance, loading, and unloading the vehicle. This option is usually reserved for prestigious retro, vintage and racing cars.

Single-stage semitrailer: A single-stage trailer contains less than a multi-stage trailer but is ideal if you have a large or custom car of a non-standard size.
