There are majorly two trailer types that are used for car transport service. They are:-
– tractor trailer trucks
– a pick-up style truck, which are also called a ‘hotshot’.
Cost wise, tractor trailers are usually a better choice for discount from trailer stores and auto shipping. They may cost less because they haul more number of vehicles at once and are also slower and have a hard time navigating residential areas. Also, the loading and unloading the car from a tractor trailer need open parking lot.
