Times That You Should Insist On A Covered Car Hauler

Hiring a car moving service to transport one or more of your vehicles from one location to another is useful in a variety of scenarios. If you're moving far away enough that you need to fly, for example, the car hauling service will get your family vehicles to your new city quickly. These services often have open and covered car haulers; the former is a flatbed-style trailer, while the latter has walls and a roof. Sometimes, you won't have a preference over which type of hauler the service uses. In these cases, however, you should insist on a covered car hauler.

The Forecast Calls For Inclement Weather

If your vehicle will be hauled in the winter and the forecast for any part of the trip looks poor, you may prefer the idea of your vehicle being safely out of the elements inside a covered car hauler. While snow and ice generally won't harm a vehicle, you may go to considerable lengths to keep a vehicle in the garage during the winter — this may be the case if you're having a leisure vehicle, rather than the one that you drive every day, transported. In the case of a classic care of a convertible, a covered hauler will be the way to go.

The Car Is Highly Valuable

A covered car hauler prevents a better barrier against theft, so this method of transportation is ideal for car owners who are having a highly valuable vehicle transported. For a long journey, the hauler driver will need to stop for the night, and this could leave the vehicle unattended on the hauler. If this idea makes you nervous, a covered hauler won't leave any clues as to what vehicles are inside, which should generally be enough to keep car thieves away.

You've Loaded Possessions Into The Vehicle

Perhaps you've taken the approach of loading several of your possessions into the vehicle or vehicles that you're having transported. Provided that the car hauling service gives you the OK to do so, this can be a useful way to get items from one location to another. However, if you've packed several high-value items into the trunk and back seat of each of the vehicles, you want to keep these things away from prying eyes. For example, a TV strapped into the back seat can be a good way to carry it, but could also be attractive to thieves. With a covered car hauler, you won't have this worry.
