What’s an Enclosed Car Transport Carrier?

Enclosed car shipping carriers transport vehicles in a specially designed container, ensuring the car remains dry, shaded and protected from any potential damage. Although enclosed car transport cost Estimate is higher than an open car hauler, your vehicle will receive VIP treatment and stay safe from flying debris, weather elements and bumps and nudges from nearby vehicles on the road. Plus, enclosed car trailers typically have higher cargo insurance coverage.

Considering Enclosed Car Transport Service vs Open Car Hauler?

An Enclosed car hauler is different from open car shipping in 3 main ways, and depending on the type of vehicle and your shipping needs, one of them will be better suited. Let’s see their characteristics below:

Car Capacity

Enclosed car hauler trailers can only move 3 to 7 cars at once because of their size and dimension limits due to the covered interior. Open vehicle trailers can accommodate up to 10 cars depending on their weight and dimensions. So it’s a better choice for those looking to move multiple vehicles like dealerships.


An enclosed car carrier offers full protection against all the risks of the outside environment, like debris, harsh UV rays, snow, rain, flying rocks, and nudges from nearby vehicles on the road. An open hauler doesn’t have this level of protection, as cars are parked on an open ramp. For regular-use vehicles, open is the right, budget-friendly option, while an enclosed car hauler offers more exclusive and secure transport for hauling exotic or luxury vehicles.

Hauling Speed

Enclosed auto haulers typically take longer to transport vehicles for various reasons, such as lack of availability and smaller engines. Plus, they have less fuel efficiency and cost more to hire. On the other hand, open trailers are faster and more affordable. So open is best for budget-oriented transports of regular cars with tight deadlines.

Enclosed Carrier Shipping Costs

Enclosed car transport companies typically charge 40-50% higher than open vehicle shipping. This means if L.A to California car shipping service costs $200 with open car transport. The enclosed car transport prices will be $280 to $300. Easy Auto Ship tries its best to keep the prices low, so our costs start from 25% higher than an open carrier for enclosed transport services.

Types of Vehicle Shipped in Enclosed auto Carrier

Enclosed car transport trailer services can be used for any type of vehicle as long as it fits within its weight and size dimensions. However, the most common vehicle types moved in enclosed car transport trailers include:

Exotic and Sports Car Transport

Cars have unique transportation requirements, such as large tires or low ground clearance that a regular shipping trailer cannot move.

High-Dollar Vehicles

Expensive cars that can lose value with even the smallest damage need higher insurance coverage, which is offered by an enclosed car shipping trailer.

Vintage and Classic Cars

Timeless classic motor vehicles always require more care and attention, which is only possible with an expert crew. Enclosed transporters offer excellent care to ensure safe shipping.

Benefits of Hiring Easy Auto Ship for Enclosed Car Transport

No Upfront Deposits

Enclosed car shipping companies sometimes ask for full upfront enclosed car transport prices, which is not good for the customer. We only charge a small sum as a deposit after we’ve found a carrier for your car. You can then pay the rest to the carrier upon car delivery.

24/7 Shipment Tracking

Once the carrier is dispatched, we will give you the tracking number of the shipment and contact details of the enclosed car carrier so you can get real-time updates on your vehicle’s transport progress.

Personalized Approach

Our drivers have a range of trailers to meet all vehicle shipping needs. Whether you need to move a single vehicle, multiple vehicles or a fleet of them in enclosed trailers, we can help. Plus, we can also help move vehicles that are large or require special equipment such as hydraulic ramps or winches.

Reliable Carriers

Our network of carriers is based on U.S.D.O.T certified haulers with years of experience shipping luxury, classic, exotic, collector, high-end, and premium vehicles with an excellent track record. After thoroughly checking their background and insurance coverage status, we hire the best carrier service providers.

Well-Maintained Fleet

Our transport trailers are kept in excellent condition with periodic maintenance to ensure they don’t cause problems during shipping. Damaged trailers can cause debris, moisture/water and other elements to enter inside, which defeats the purpose of enclosed trailer transport. We ensure this doesn’t happen when you use our service.

How We Expertly Shipped Tana’s Car to Hawaii

Tana was relocating to Hawaii and was not sure how to go about moving her car as there was no road from the mainland to Hawaii. She did there through a search and quickly became overwhelmed by the unclear information and the “hidden” fees from other transport companies. Easy Auto Ship stood because we communicated clearly and showed complete professionalism. Our prices were also transparent, and Tana knew that because she had already conducted market research. Tana wanted to move the car in an enclosed trailer, so we guaranteed the car would be moved inside a fully enclosed carrier, not just the one covered from the top or sides. Our enclosed trailer protected her vehicle across the mainland before it shipped on freight to Hawaii. Tana said our customer service was impressive during the transit. Her contact from Easy Auto Ship, Rachael, coordinated everything flawlessly, including all payments.
