Our History

We've done a little bit of everything in this industry dating back to 1988 where it all began in Watsonville, California. We started as a towing company with just a single truck doing 24 hour emergency shipping and roadside assistance. We expanded until we had a fleet of trucks, operating in various parts of California. We purchased our first auto transport carrier in 1992, and by 1995 we owned over 50 carriers who moved vehicles across the country. We grew fast, and in 1998 we realized we had more demand than we could service with the trucks we had. This led us to get ourselves into the brokering side of the business as well, using our extensive knowledge of the industry and partnerships we'd obtained over the years with high character companies who share the same goals as us.

These days we do it all to help get your shipment where it needs to be as fast, affordable and effectively as possible. If we can't effectively handle your shipment ourselves, we'll refer you to other high character, licensed and bonded shippers who all go through a rigorous screening process before they are allowed to be accepted into our network.

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

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

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.
