Different Types of Transportation & Trailers

What do we usually know about car shipping? That some driver comes and load your vehicle on the truck and then deliver it to your destination location.

But it’s only a tip of an Apollo relocation packers and movers.

The first step for car shipping is to choose the transportation type which suits you best.

Types of Cars


Trailer types can be:

1. Open

Open transportation means that your vehicle is going to be transported on an open trailer and exposed to the outdoors. They have built-in ramps that make the loading and off-loading process easier. These trailers are using power hydraulics to raise or lower the ramps.

This type of car shipping is the most important. An open car carrier trailer is any trailer without sides.

And what about trailers?

Open trailers:

  • single-vehicle hotshot trailer

It is a pickup dully with a tow trailer, which is usually a single level.

One of the biggest advantages of a small truck like a hotshot or a single level multi-car carrier is that it can get to places that are not accessible to the big multi-level multi-car carrier trucks.

  • single-level multi-car trailer

This trailer can be used for shipping RV, Travel Trailer, big Pickup truck, or SUV.

  • multi-level multi-car carrier trailer

This the most commonly used auto transport trailer.

If you need to ship a car across the country for private or business needs it’s your choice.

2. Enclosed

It can be a soft side or hard side trailer.

The vehicle in the enclosed trailer is safer from the outdoor conditions (for example weather).

Enclosed trailers:

  • single-level single-vehicle enclosed trailer

This type of trailer is used for transporting luxury vehicles or for short distances.

  • single-level multi-vehicle enclosed trailer

This trailer can transport up to 3 vehicles at the same time.

  • multi-level multi-vehicle enclosed trailer

This trailer can transport 6-8 vehicles at the same time.

These trailers are pulled by powerful semi-trucks and are loaded and unloaded just like an open carrier with adjustable deck ramps.

  • For inoperable vehicles

In the case if you’re vehicle is inoperable the driver needs to know from where to where it’s going.

If it’s going from an auction or port, they will load the vehicle by a forklift.

If it’s going from residence the driver needs to have a winch to load it on the trailer.

  1. Local
  2. Across country
  3. International
  4. Door to Door
  5. Terminal to Terminal
