transport vehicles. Some of them carry one vehicle at a
time, others can transport up to ten vehicles all at the same time.

carriers that hold 1 to 3 vehicles. Smaller trailers are also used

vehicles, depending on their sizes.

pick up your vehicle. The most important factor that you should
carefully consider is to make sure that you have hired a car shipping
company that you can trust. A company with a great reputation
will be fully insured and will get the job done right.
