Is open carrier auto shipping safe?
Open carrier transport does not protect vehicles from wind, rain, sun, hail or other wind elements. As a result, Metti International partners with carriers that have a 95% or above on time service and safety rating to guarantee your car is in good hands.
All partner carriers conduct a thorough inspection before loading the car onto a trailer. This also allows us to verify the condition of your vehicle and ensure it arrives in the same condition. Afterwards, the car is secured to the trailer to reduce vibrations and movement during transport.
