A car carrier trailer, also known as a car hauler, can be a trailer or semi-trailer used for transporting cars via a truck. They can be open or enclosed, with built-in ramps for cars to be loaded and offloaded. It can haul between 2 and 10 cars at a time.
During transport in an open carrier, the vehicles are outdoors and exposed to the elements. The number of cars transported is usually 5-10. Open car carriers are usually loaded to full capacity, so the car owners can divide the transportation cost among themselves. This means that transporting your vehicle in an open carrier is the most cost-efficient solution. Shippers usually choose it for transporting sedans and minivans.
As opposed to open car carriers, enclosed car carriers are typically used for transporting luxury and vintage cars. The cars are shipped in a closed container, protected from external elements. Typically, no more than three cars are shipped in an enclosed carrier. That is one of the reasons why enclosed carriers are a more expensive option than open car carriers.
