Car Shipping and Car Transportation Services
A1 Auto Transport (a1autotransport.com) 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.
