Using Abilene Auto Transport Services
This section explains the basics of the auto transport process, including what you need to do to prepare your car and what the requirements are for a vehicle to be shipped to or from Abilene.
Information - Before contacting any companies (even through a form on their website like the one to the right), you should gather some basic information about the vehicle(s) you need to be shipped. Important aspects that will affect the price of transport include the car’s current location, make, model, year and of course, delivery destination. Most companies will ask for some basic contact information of yours when you request a price estimate - usually just your name, email and phone number. It’s also a good idea to have a timeframe for delivery that you’re comfortable with, ideally several weeks out from when you start contacting auto transporters in your area.
Shipping a vehicle internationally? One of the best and most affordable ways to do it is by a container and you can find the world’s most popular ports for container shipping on this page.
Requirements - In order for the shipper to load your vehicle onto the transport carrier, there are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet (see below for the information about external components and modifications). The gas level in the vehicle should be at less than one-quarter tank and if it’s higher, you might face an additional fee from the company. Hauling multiple vehicles at once means that gas weight adds up and this is a way that companies help minimize the cargo weight they’re hauling. Personal items are not allowed to be transported inside the vehicle when it’s being shipped. The inside of the car should be clean and as empty as possible, including any removable electronics. Finally, the car needs to be in good running condition. Some shippers can move inoperable vehicles, but most use a type of carrier that requires the car to be driven or rolled onto it for loading.
Modifications - Any modifications or custom parts that have been added to your vehicle could pose a potential problem when transporting over a long distance. Because of this, most auto shipping companies will request that any removable components be stored before loading. This includes items like rear spoilers, specialized antennas, luggage or bike racks, removable GPS and music systems and pretty much anything else that can be removed. If there is any issue that may affect the clearance level of the vehicle, either above or below the car, that should be communicated with the transport company as early as possible.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Abilene
Moving to another city can be difficult for a number of reasons, not the least of which is getting around. Since you’re not familiar with the area, you can easily get lost. Public transportation can also be confusing if you don’t know where you’re going.
For these reasons and for their own convenience, many people choose to bring their cars with them when moving. A vehicle will be useful regardless if you’re moving permanently or not.
We recommend you look into the state’s laws to make sure you car is street legal according to their regulations. Also, you should make sure your driver’s license is still valid. If it’s not, see what steps you can take to obtain a new one.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Abilene
To protect your car from bad weather, road debris, and vandals, you should ideally use an enclosed carrier. Because such trucks have a relatively low carrying capacity, they’re more expensive and in lower numbers, meaning they’re harder to book as well.
However, owners of luxury and classic models still find it worth it due to the benefits that come with this service. The limit on our insurance policy is raised when using an enclosed truck or trailer. We’ll also send you regular updates and arrange a much faster delivery.
Special Discounts in Abilene
There are several key ingredients to a successful and well priced shipment. The right company and carrier are very important factors, but discounts can be just as valuable if not more.
At A1 auto transport, you can find quite a few discounts and specials. We like to help as many people as we can and are happy to report that more than half our clients qualify for them.
Besides our first timer and seasonal discounts, we've prepared separate price reductions for seniors and students. If you're worried about repeated shipping costs due to frequent relocations as part of your job in the army, call today to use our military special.
International Shipping to/from Abilene
Regardless of where you go on the globe, you’ll need transportation. You can either waste time buying a car there or settle for a bus or a taxi. However, you can also ship your current vehicle with A1 auto transport.
Our services are available right now, and we may have a seasonal offer in place as well. We have ways of transporting your car faster. We can keep the price as low as possible, so you can afford it easily even with a regular salary. We can even organize luxury vehicle transports with all the safety measures required.
Cheap Transportation Options in Abilene
To reach an acceptable price, you may have to negotiate it down. This is not impossible in the auto transport industry, since there are cheaper options mixed in with the more expensive ones.
For example, you can use an enclosed carrier and our door to door services to obtain the fastest, most comfortable shipment. However, it will cost you the most.
Slightly cheaper options would be an enclosed carrier combined with a terminal to door option, an open carrier with a door to terminal option, etc. These types of transports are suited for people with medium incomes.
On the lower end of the price spectrum, we have open carriers and terminal to terminal services. By adding a discount into the mix, you can obtain the absolute lowest shipping price.
