Safety and protection

The capitan represents an innovative and versatile vehicle transporter, especially suitable for the safe transport of particularly exclusive limousines, valuable prototypes, individual exhibition vehicles and vintage cars.


  • The specially developed drive-over platform with continuous pan fields can be lowered completely into the low deck and positioned steplessly. This results in a high stacking flexibility and offers many loading options.

  • With the electric spindles, the complete roof section can be lifted up from closed position to 850 mm, facilitating quick and easy loading and unloading.

  • Due to the divided lifting platform, the maximum loading capacity can be realized and optimally implemented, especially when transporting wider vehicles.

  • The carrier’s flexibility even enables the transport of particularly 
demanding loads.
