The following are the most common five you will encounter.

  • The Faceless Entity Quote - During the research step of the shipping process, you will come across so many toll-free numbers directing you to different companies and brokers all over the country. It is important when obtaining a quote to request the company’s name, a direct call-back number, and also the name of the contact person, so if you have any questions, it is easy to follow up. Sometimes, companies would rather send you to an 800 number and the person you reach may have no record of your previous contact. If a company values your business, they will do everything in their power to make it easy for you to reach them at a later date.
  • The Hard Sell Quote - This is one of the most common types of auto shipping quotes you will receive when doing preliminary research. Instead of providing an online quote calculator or a way to request a quote via e-mail, a company will divert your phone call to a salesperson who will use every tactic imaginable to have you sign with them immediately. Because the probability of a potential customer calling back to book transport later drops significantly after the phone call is terminated, the agent or salesperson will strongly put pressure on you to commit immediately.
  • The (Not) Free Quote - Some companies will advertise free quotes and promote free quotes, but upon closer inspection, you will discover these quotes do actually have a price attached. Because the transport company must do some legwork in order to provide you a legitimate, honest quote, they may first want to ensure you are serious about moving forward on the booking. They may require a credit card number before giving you a quote, and don’t be surprised if you are told there is some sort of surcharge to get that quote via e-mail or in writing vs. verbally on the phone. Some companies may explain this charge as a sort of deposit, that will be applied to the final balance when you choose them, but this is wrong on so many   A truly reputable, straightforward auto transport company will provide you with a quote, free of charge, with absolutely no strings attached.
  • The Broker Quote - This is by far the most common quote you will receive. Instead of being put in touch with an auto shipping company directly, you most likely will be tasked with contacting innumerable brokers or booking agents to schedule transport. The great news about this is because brokers work with a large number of drivers, they have the ability to provide you with the best deal. Because they also work in high volumes, you may discover they are much less likely to strong-arm you into an immediate decision.
  • The Generic Quote - By far the most dangerous of them all, if a company is willing to provide you with a shipping quote without first asking some specifics about your vehicle (make/model/etc.) and pick-up location/destination, then you know immediately they cannot be trusted. An experienced and reputable company recognizes that these are important factors in providing you with a trustworthy, consistent quote. If they don’t have specific information regarding your personal needs, there are no guarantees that they won’t renege and go back on the original quote they provided upon obtaining further specifications down the line.

Buyer beware, a company that advertises for free shipping quotes may not be all they seem, so do your due diligence before making any final decisions, and don’t fall victim to any of the preceding “5 free auto shipping quotes” so very prevalent in the transport industry today.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
