When looking to ship your luxury or exotic car, we highly recommend you choose to ship it on an enclosed trailer. There are two types of enclosed trailers you can choose from to fit your shipping needs. While enclosed transport is going to be more expensive than open-air vehicle transport, enclosed offers the most protection for your valuable car during the transportation process.
Soft-Side Enclosed Trailers
A soft-side enclosed trailer is similar to a regular open-air trailer except it is completely closed off with a heavy canvas. This protects your car from outside elements like weather and debris hitting your car. For most new luxury cars like BMW, Mercedes, and Audi, we recommend a soft-side enclosed trailer. This is how they are typically transported to car dealerships and offer more protection compared to an open-air trailer.
Hard-Side Enclosed Trailers
A hard-side enclosed trailer provides the highest level of protection for your vehicle during transportation. Unlike soft-side enclosed trailers, hard-side enclosed trailers are 100% air-tight to protect against all outside elements. This added protection is why most people will choose to ship their exotic cars in hard-side enclosed trailers. Another common feature with hard-side enclosed is a lift gate. This is needed for high-end sports cars and low-slung exotics due to the low ground clearance. Cars like Ferrari, Mclaren, Aston Martin, etc typically have a 3-5 inch ground clearance.
