A1 Auto Transport Joins North Dakota Motor Carriers Association

Bakersfield, California – A1 Auto Transport (, a leader in the car shipping industry that owns and operates over 30 modern car carriers through a network of more than 40 terminal facilities throughout the continental United States, is proud to announce it has recently joined the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association.

The North Dakota Motor Carriers Association is designed to bring awareness for increased highway safety as well as public education on the importance and value of commercial vehicle transportation. The Association has 250+ members and is involved in legislative representation, government relations, and other highway safety programs.

A1 Auto Transport is excited to be part of the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association and to contribute to the Association’s goal of increasing public education and awareness of highway safety.

Car Shipping and Car Transportation Services

A1 Auto Transport ( offers several options to handle customers personal, dealer, military, or corporate automobile moves.

As a leader in the car shipping industry, A1 Auto Transport features open-air, enclosed transport, door-to-door, and terminal-to-terminal car shipping services, as well as high-end luxury car moving services for vehicles that require careful handling and extra attention to detail.

Open-Air Vehicle Shipping

Open-air car shipping means that a car is loaded onto a multi-car carrier along with other vehicles before being moved.

While open-air shipping is one of the more popular and cost-effective ways to move a vehicle, customers who are concerned about weather and road debris during transit may prefer the complete protection offered by enclosed carriers.

Enclosed Auto Transport

Enclosed car shipping shields vehicles from the elements and offers the best protection at the best price.

A1 Auto Transport provides two types of enclosed vehicle moving options, these are:

  • Soft-Sided Enclosed Transport

This uses a car shipping carrier that is covered in canvas or vinyl, offering limited protection against weather and road conditions, but more than open-air transport. Soft-sided carriers can prevent most damage from small rocks, wind, and rain.

  • Hard-Sided Enclosed Transport

Hard-sided enclosed transport delivers an extra level of protection from weather and road hazards by completely protecting vehicles being transported by keeping them sealed off from outdoors.

This option is also recommended when customers want to transport high-end vehicles, as it ensures absolute privacy.


Terminal-to-terminal shipping is the industry standard for transporting vehicles and requires the customer to both drop off and pick up their car from a depot or terminal.

This is the most affordable service currently available in the industry, and A1 Auto Transport offers the service in nearly every major city in the United States.

Door-to-Door Auto Transport

Door-to-door car shipping costs more than terminal-to-terminal shipping but can save considerable time in transporting vehicles when customers are moving cross country.

The advantage of door-to-door car shipping is that there is no need for customers to drop off or pick up their vehicle at a terminal, as A1 Auto Transport will pick it up for them and drop it off at the location specified.

There are instances in which car shipping carriers are unable to maneuver in certain locations, such as some apartment complexes or streets with low-hanging tree branches. In these situations, the experienced drivers at A1 Auto Transport will arrange to meet customers at the nearest convenient location.

Exotic and Luxury Automobiles

When transporting exotic, classic, or luxury vehicles, customers want to be certain that their vehicles will be handled with the utmost care to ensure it arrives in the same condition it was left in.

Upon request, A1 Auto Transport can load a customer’s luxury vehicle into the first position in the shipping trailer so it does not undergo loading and unloading as the other cars are added and removed.

Though shipping insurance and satellite tracking come standard with every quote offered by A1 Auto Transport, it is important for customers to consider additional insurance if their vehicle is particularly valuable. This type of insurance can be offered through a customer’s existing auto insurance plan or can be purchased through a third-party carrier.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
