An important point to note in a reputable transport service provider is to always have insurance and license coverage. The transport agency one chooses should be under the vigilance of Saudi Authorities and should meet all the requirements of the government’s policies.

It is the ultimate choice of the customer to decide upon open or enclosed vehicle for the transportation of the cars. The option of selecting enclosed truck for shipping will come at a higher price but it is better to ship the cars using an enclosed truck. If a customer wants to ship a luxurious car then closed vehicle is always the best option, because it will protect the car from getting damaged.
