Broker & Carrier
If you are looking for a company to do your shipping, two services you may come across are carriers and freight brokers. Since they can both get your freight from where it is to where it needs to go, does that means they are the same thing? Not even close. Let’s take a look at the differences between a freight carrier and a freight broker to see when one might be more appropriate to use over the other.
A freight carrier may be the thing that comes to mind when you think of moving cargo. A carrier is a business that operates a fleet of trucks that moves your freight from point A to point B. They own the trucks, they pay the drivers and they handle dispatch and scheduling.
Auto carriers typically have coverage areas that they operate within. If you are having a freight carrier move your goods, you can track its progress through them and would address any issues you had with your service directly through the carrier.
A auto broker does not own any shipping equipment. They do not operate the trucks and do not have coverage areas or terminals. Much like the name suggests, they are brokers for freight carriers.
This means a auto broker’s job is to match up freight carriers with cargo. They are well versed in carriers. They know the routes, the coverage areas and where the terminals are. Typically a broker will be able to move your freight quickly using one or a series of freight carriers.
If you were to use a broker, you would not interface directly with the carrier. This means in order to track your shipment or to deal with customer service issues you would need to work through your broker as the interface to the freight carrier.
When to Use a Carrier or a Broker
So now that you know the differences between the two, when should you use one over the other? A freight carrier is great to choose it ! Always you save more money than you think ..
Shipping your vehicle with auto transport carriers means the company owns the trucks ! Our company has driver and multiple trucks down on the road. Lets come to the point. The company you are hiring is doing everything from booking the order, to loading, to then delivering the vehicle. It is the opposite with a broker
Brokers do not have trucks. Do not have drivers ! They will have to find a carrier to move your vehicle and will charge a fee for doing so. This is why there are so many trying to deal with a carrier. The pricing and the service is all coming from the same place. If you go directly with transportation you will earn more money ! You dont have to pay any fee ! You dont have to pay extra money.. If you want to see difference , if you need a quote , Call the broker and ask the price ! and call us give a quote from us .. You will see the cliff difference ! This is the cheapest way .. Why you should go directly with auto transportation companies..

Choosing a Carrier Makes a Difference
From Mercedes to Porsche or Rolls Royce, when you trust EMV Transportation to ship your luxury car you can rest assured that you’re employing a fully-insured, luxury car carrier. What’s the difference between a broker and a carrier? An auto transport carrier like EMV Transportation specializes in luxury car shipping services and focuses solely on the client’s interests. An auto transport broker is a facilitator who takes an order for luxury car transport services and contracts with a carrier that owns the shipping equipment. A broker can seem like a “one-stop shop,” due to strategic marketing tactics. You won’t necessarily who is transporting your luxury car, where the car is at all times, and the experience of the driver transporting the car. Why leave transporting your luxury car up to a series of unknowns? Choose the experience, security, and quality-service of EMV Transportation.

What’s The Difference Between Open and Enclosed Transport?
It’s good to have choices. When it comes to auto transport, you have many service types. Two you’ve probably heard of are a open car shipping and enclosed auto transport. Generally speaking, the difference between open and enclosed service includes vehicle protection, transit times, service costs, and insurance coverage.
Let’s take a closer look at each service type to see how they’re alike, how they differ, and how you can choose the type of service that meets your needs.
Enclosed Auto Transport
An enclosed auto transport protects your vehicle during transport against the same weather and road elements you would be faced with if you were driving the vehicle to its destination. These include rain, sun, dust, tar, bugs, debris and others. Enclosed carriers are made up of boxed enclosures that surround your vehicle typically with solid or curtain walls. There are few reasons to opt for enclosed auto transport, but the most significant reason is to maintain pristine condition of your vehicle.
Some other key points about enclosed auto transport:
Transit times are generally faster.
Insurance coverage is $250,000 per vehicle.
Non stack carriers are available.
For more enclosed specifics, read our enclosed auto transport page.
Open Car Shipping
Open car shipping is the standard service type for auto transport. As the name suggest, vehicles travel uncovered to weather and road conditions during transport. Your vehicle is exposed to the same elements you encounter while driving, such as sun, snow, dust, debris and others.
Here are some key features:
Open car shipping is the more inexpensive service type.
Insurance covers up to $75,000 per vehicle.
80-90% of autos are shipped via open car carriers.

Open Car Shipping
The number one reason why clients opt to go with the enclosed carrier vs open carrier is for vehicle protection. Carriers are covered and the risk of damage to vehicles is practically eliminated. Unlike the open carrier, vehicles are not exposed to any elements of the weather and the road such as rain, dust, hail, road debris, sun etc. In addition, enclosed car carriers carry a minimum of $250,000 and up to $1,000,000 of coverage insurance while the open car carriers carry only a minimum of $100,000.
Due to the limited amount of carriers offering enclosed service and the demand for the service, transporting vehicles enclosed is a bit more costly. On average, enclosed car carriers cost approximately $300-$1,000 more than the open car carriers. The extra cost is also attributed to the operating of the carriers. Since the enclosed auto carriers are the best available in the industry they are also more expensive to operate, service and maintain.
Open Car Carrier Vs Enclosed Car Carrier
Enclosed car carriers are smaller and limited in space. Normally a covered carrier is only able to accommodate 2-7 vehicles compared to the open carrier which can handle sometimes up to 10 vehicles. This means that an enclosed carrier will have less vehicles to pickup, less vehicles to deliver and faster delivery times. Contrary to open carriers, most enclosed carriers are equipped with either lift gates or low profile ramps. Enclosed carriers are able to handle any low clearance vehicle with a clearance as low as 1″ without damaging the bottom while loading and unloading.
Nationwide United Auto Transport wants you to feel confident no matter what option you decide to go with. With over 15 years of experience in the auto transport industry, we’ve transported thousands of vehicles via enclosed and open carriers. If the extra cost is not an issue, then we suggest to transport your vehicle enclosed. Either way, have peace of mind knowing that you have a reliable auto shipping company taking care of your vehicle’s move.
In the past, auto transport meant having to drop off your vehicle at a terminal where it would sit for weeks before it was on a truck and on its way to another terminal where you would pickup. This service, known as terminal to terminal, was the go to option as it was standard and affordable. What many customers didn’t realize was that having to coordinate a drop-off and then a pickup would in the contrary cost them time and add another task to complete.
What Is Door to Door Service?
Fast forward to today, door to door is the new standard service for auto transport. Simply put, door to door service means we come to you. Carriers conveniently pickup and deliver your vehicle as close as possible and legally allowed.
If your locations are inaccessible for trucks, our carrier will look for a nearby location where he can park and safely load and unload your vehicle(s). Most of the time this will be a commercial shopping center such as Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Lowe’s etc. or a major ample street where he can pull over, park and safely load and unload.

No Trucks Allowed
By law trucks weighing over 6,000 lbs are prohibited access on residential streets. Residential streets are narrow in size and do not have the necessary space for trucks to safely maneuver in and out. There is also other restrictions that can jeopardize carrier safety which include overhanging trees, cul de sacs, parked vehicles, dead ends and so on.
Keep in mind, many car carriers are large 80ft (100ft with ramps extended) commercial trucks that require sufficient space to park, load and unload. In addition to their experience, drivers use commercial GPS’ to determine how close they can get to your location and what streets are accessible and inaccessible for their trucks.
