Shipping Scrap Cars with We Will Transport It. Shipping cars that do not run can be a difficult process, involving different procedures, training & equipment from typical car transport. Every move is unique, some cars do not start while others can’t roll due to collision damage and some don’t even have wheels. Although there many reasons that can make a car an inoperable – we provide the expertise and international shipping coverage making it simple for you.
How to Transport Scrap Cars
Transporting scrap cars is a little bit different than transporting new or used vehicles. It is still doable, but there are a few key differences that will influence the overall shipping process. It is common for scrap cars to be non-operational at the time of shipment. This limits the types of shipping options the owner of a scrap car can use. We are going to explain to you how to transport scrap cars both internationally.
Transporting Totaled Car Shipping
When it comes to transporting scrap cars internationally, you have a few choices. Scrap cars are loaded and transported just like any other non-operating vehicle. You can either use open car transport or enclosed car transport.
Whatever you choose, your scrap car will be loaded onto the back of a truck and delivered to its destination. The major difference is whether you want to pay for the added protection that enclosed transport adds.
Advantages vs. Disadvantages of Open Car Transport
A major advantage of shipping your vehicle in an open carrier is the price. This is simply due to the fact that an open carrier is able to hold far more vehicles than an enclosed one. The main disadvantage of open car transport is that the vehicle is exposed to wind, weather, and road debris, but still not as exposed as if the car was being driven on the road.
The cars are safely secured on the trailer with thick chains that are wrapped around the vehicle’s tires. Although the trailer is open to the elements, it is still a very secure way to transport. In fact, an advantage of the carrier being open is that it provides visibility to the driver so that they are able to inspect your vehicle periodically during the trip. Another advantage of open car transport is less fuel usage, which is environmentally beneficial.
Enclosed Auto Transport
Are enclosed auto transport companies right for you? First, you should ask yourself if you are needing to have your vehicle transported but are not sure whether to should ship it open or enclosed. There are some very significant differences between open car transport and enclosed transport and a number of factors to consider. The decision should be based on your individual transport needs, but here are some things to consider when making your decision.
An enclosed carrier is exactly that, completely enclosed. The trailer has side and roof panels, protecting vehicles from the elements. They have only the capacity to transport 2-4 vehicles, less than half of what the open carrier can. For this reason, enclosed transport is more expensive. However, it is sometimes completely necessary to ship door-to-door transport enclosed if you are shipping a greatly valued vehicle such as a high-end sports car or an antique vehicle. An enclosed carrier has a 1-million-dollar insurance policy per vehicle, where an opened carrier has only a 100,000-dollar insurance policy per vehicle. So, people transporting their vehicles valued at 100,000 dollars or more are recommended to ship their vehicle in an enclosed trailer.
The Advantages vs. Disadvantages on Enclosed Carriers:
Ask any of the enclosed auto transport companies out there about the main advantage of enclosed vehicle delivery, and they’ll tell you that it is the safest and most secure option. The enclosed trailer protects your vehicle from all elements of the air and the road. It is also climate controlled. The biggest disadvantage of enclosed carriers as we already discussed, is the price. The driver must cover his expenses of the trip such as fuel, taxes, and weigh station fees while still making some kind of profit.
This amount will be the same whether the trailer is opened or enclosed. The truck driver then must take that total and divides it by the number of vehicles on the trailer (also taking the vehicle’s size into account). So basically, the difference in price has to do with the fact that the driver’s expenses are being divided only 2-4 ways, where the driver with the open carrier can divide his expenses 8-10 ways, which would, of course, mean a cheaper price per car. There are some instances in which enclosed shipping is recommended.
The major advantage of enclosed auto transport is the fact that it provides you with added protection for your vehicle. Many people don’t need extra protection if they are shipping a scrap car unless the car itself is extremely rare or its parts are expensive.
