The auto transportation Industry in USA is developing since long back. Year on year it is growing rapidly. Now a days we are using mainly truck & car trailers to move our vehicle from one place to another. The companies who are currently providing this type of Auto transport services also provide insurance coverage, door to door auto transport services etc. Transportation of a car to a overseas location usually through sea or air route is preferable. Previously one has to take care of all the issues related to transportation of a car like custom clearance, freight charges etc. But now a day’s all these types of issues are taken care by auto transport companies. They ensure the safety, security & timely dispatch of the automobiles. These auto transport companies can dispatch many automobiles at a time.

Which Auto transport carriers need to be used mainly depends on the deadline & budget. Usually a auto transport carriers which are Double Decker can carry up to 12 vehicles. Mainly two types of carriers are used for the vehicle transportation:

1. Open carriers

2. Closed carriers

Closed carriers are usually costlier than Open carriers. In Auto Transportation Industry 95% use is Open carriers while only 5% use is Closed carriers. Generally Open carriers can carry ten standard sized cars at a time. One very easily can find a Open carriers than a Closed carriers because its [Closed carrier] use is very limited [Only 5%] in the car shippers Industry. A Closed carrier can’t carry too many vehicles like Open carrier. It can carry only two vehicles at a time. Transportation cost of a Closed carrier is 75% more than the transportation cost of a Open carrier because a Closed carrier provides more protection than a Open carrier.

In “ Door to Door Auto transport service” cars are transported directly to the recipients door from the sender’s door while in “Terminal to Terminal Auto transport service” cars are transported from one certain location to another location. Which transportation service should be used mainly depends on the budget of the customers. Apparently “Terminal to Terminal Auto transport service “seems cost effective service but many times additional expenditure for taking the car to the recipients’ door make the “Door to Door Auto Transport Service “cheaper than the “Terminal to Terminal Auto transport service “ .
