When to choose an open type of transportation

Open transport - the choice for most customers

Submit a request

Open transport car shipping is the most widely chosen and affordable option when it comes to shipping vehicles. Most resellers and dealerships work exclusively with open carrier car shipping because it is efficient, cost-effective, and because the majority of rigs on the road are open type carriers.

This is also why you should select Shippa's open carrier car transport option if time is your main concern. There are simply more rigs and more delivery times to choose from with open auto transport.

While there are risks of minor damage with open air car shipping, especially over long distances, such occurrences are exceptionally rare. Damage is caused mostly by sudden storms, road debris, or driver error while loading and unloading.

Shippa drivers are carefully selected, as are our routes, so your risk is minimized. For a small fee, you can always select the Topload option during the ordering process to have your vehicle transported on the upper level for extra protection from the roadway.

I have shipped cars with different companies before, and I had different experiences. Shipaa stands out. Their service is top-notch, and the best part is that they offer GPS tracking, so you know where your car is at any moment. There were no delays in my shipment. If you need a delivery at a specified time, they will comply. All in all, it was great working with them

Gordon Sosa


Working with Shipaa was great since the beginning. The whole process of booking a shipment was easy. Their operators were super polite, and we managed to strike a deal for the shipment from Detroit to California. My car was in perfect condition when it shipped to the destination point. Their services are super affordable, and if I ever have to ship a car again, I know who to call.👍

The biggest problem for me when I moved from New York to LA was my car. The trip was too long for me to drive it myself, and shipping it was the only option. Shipaa was the obvious choice for me because their services were much more affordable than other shipping companies. I have chosen an open carrier because of the lower price. It was easy to book the shipping, and it took only a few minutes. The truck driver was at my house the next day, and the car was on its way. There were no unpleasant surprises, Shipaa was the right option.
