Tow Dolly vs Auto Transport

You are planning to shift your house. Everything is ready; you have notified your landlord, tax agencies, post office, and the social security administration about your home changes. But there is one problem that you do not know how you will manage a car at your new place. You have two options choosing between tow dolly or auto transport. Let’s have a discussion on tow dolly vs auto transport.

Understanding the Differences
Before arguing on this point, let’s know about the differences between tow dolly and auto transport. This writing will give you details understanding which one is the best fit for you.

How they work
Either it is one of the best car dollies or it is tow dolly, both are two-wheel vehicles, and it will help you to lift the front wheels of your car. As you will pull tow dolly or tow your vehicle, and for this, rear wheels will stay on the ground. On the other hand, auto transport or car barrier is known as four-wheel, which will easily lift the whole car from the ground.

Vehicle Compatibility
The vehicle, which is the front-wheel-drive type for those two dollies, is suitable. It is also suitable for all-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and rear-wheel-drive. For some weight restrictions issues, it is ideal for heavier vehicles.

Auto transport can move heavier vehicles easily. It is because they have prepared their carriers with some adjustments so that your truck or modified cars can be adjusted. Sometime they will notify to reduce some number of vehicles if it exceeded the weight limit.

Setup the Effortlessness
If you are totally new, it would not be easy to hook up your car with the tow dolly. Drive wheels should be maintained with extra security so that any accident takes place. That’s because when you tow your vehicle with a tow dolly, then you cannot take an emergency brake to place your car.

Towing a rear-wheel-drive is considered problematic. Because of the front clearance issue, you might have to take the drive shafts. From your end, minimal effort is required for the vehicle towing with a car trailer. Typically, Carrier Company will help you to do the load and unload the car; so in that sense, you will need less effort for this.

Costing issues
When you are about to think about renting, then tow dolly is an affordable option for you. Usually, renting tow dolly starts from $98, and on the other hand, auto transport costs around $118 and even more.

Sometimes you will have to pay some extra charges like rental charges or fuel charges. Even some rental company’s don’t rent their tow dolly unless you hire a truck from them, so in that sense, you will have to pay the same bill as hiring auto transport.

Safety Issues
Trailer sway is one of the main problems with car dolly, and for this fisting, movement can happen anytime when you drive at high speed. And this towing accident occurs frequently, and it can be risky in the bad weather when the road becomes very much slippery to control the vehicle.

On the other hand, auto transport is much more safety than the tow dolly because the entire vehicle remains fully loaded? And also, the driver has to focus on controlling the car while driving.

Speed issues
Tow dolly has to maintain a slower-than-average speed while driving to ensure the safety. Usually, slower driving increases transit time.

On the other hand, auto transport has some restrictions over their speed, but yes, there is no risk of trailer sway. That’s why it can move a bit faster with tow dollies.

Pros and Cons of Tow Dollies and Auto Transport
In this section, we will share the positive and negative sides of both of the tow dolly and auto transport. Without further delay, let’s check them out.

Pros & Cons of Tow Dolly

• Price is very low
• You can have these for short distance moving
• All the time you can have your car

• To set-up, it takes too much time

Pros & Cons Auto Transport

• It is too much safer
• You don’t have to push that much effort
• Easily you can have heavy vehicles

• It is perfect for the cross country

• You have to pay more than tow dolly

Which one should you go for?
The final choice is always dependent on your demand. If you want a suggestion, if you are moving for a short distance, you need to go with to-dolly, but you have weight limitations. On the other hand, auto transport can support you to take heavy weight, and you can move for a long distance.

Tow dolly vs auto transport always comes up with critical thinking. But don’t go for the cheapest suggestion; do consider the safety and also the vehicle condition issues. And lastly, choose the options according to your requirements.
