Safe And Reliable Alabaster Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

This small Alabama town is situated just between Birmingham and Clanton in Shelby County. Home to nearly 33,000 and while the population is not entirely small, the town feels like a small town due to the surroundings. The city was named for a carbonate powder that was heavily mined in the area in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

The median income in Alabaster is close to $75,000 annually and is nearly double that of the median in the state which is only around $46,000. Unemployment in Alabaster is at a lower percentage than the state average and many residents work retail, construction and manufacturing but more than 20% of the local population is employed in upper management and sales lead positions which garner higher wages than other positions. With the low unemployment rate, Alabaster is an ideal city for those relocating with family to find better employment opportunities.

Alabaster was named by Movoto as one of the best ten places in the state of Alabama based on low crime, quality of life, tax rates, unemployment and weather. Moreover, its central location puts it in proximity of a number of fun and family-friendly activities, from hiking in Oak Mountain State Park to fishing at nearby Tannehill State Park. Despite its small town status, there is plenty to do in and around Alabaster, which makes it such as attractive option for both relocation and a quick visit. As it is still growing, there are a number of reasons why people would want to relocate to the area, thus requiring Alabaster auto shipping to be comfortable when moving around.

Using Alabaster Vehicle Transport Companies

When you are looking to book Alabaster car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:

  • Make sure your company of choice has a depot nearby: Alabaster is a fairly small community; however, it is considered a suburb of Birmingham, so when you choose your auto transport services, make sure there is a depot for drop-off and/or pick-up in Birmingham, or in another part of the state nearby.
  • Make time to look around Shelby County: There is plenty to be found here, in terms of activities. When your Alabaster auto transport transaction is complete, make time to drive around the county to take in the many beautiful natural settings that abound in and around Alabaster.
  • Check pricing: Since Alabaster auto transport may take you outside of the more well-known commercial zones, check the price quoted from your auto transport company to ensure that you aren’t being charged exorbitant rates for delivery to or from the Alabaster community.

Auto Transport Quotes

It isn’t difficult to get an auto transport quote to ship to or from Alabaster quickly just by filling out a FREE quote form online where you can get multiple quotes all at one time. For detailed quotes, you may want to speak to a live agent where you can provide more information about the vehicle as well as where and how you need to have the vehicle moved.

Car owners who have had modifications that alter the height or weight of a car for instance, may need to schedule shipment on a larger carrier than one that would hold standard sized vehicles.

You will need to schedule the vehicle for shipment by choosing whether you want door to door transport or terminal transport and the mode of transport you will use.

Door to Door Transport

We offer convenient door to door shipping services to all our customers. This means your vehicle will be picked up and delivered to the address you choose. If for some reason the large carrier truck can not access your road due to local ordinances, narrow streets or other conditions that would make it difficult or dangerous to drive the heavy carrier on, we will work with you to make arrangements to have the driver meet you at a nearby location where there is a large parking lot or other easily accessible location where the car can be loaded or unloaded quickly and safely.

Terminal Transport

Not going to be available to meet a driver and you have no one you trust that can meet them in your place? There are auto terminals in various locations nationwide where you can park your vehicle and have a driver pick it up or where you can have the driver deliver the vehicle for you to pick up after it has been delivered. It is important that you check the terminal location out ahead of time to ensure it has proper security and lighting and to see if it is staffed 24 hours daily or if the car will be locked inside a gate after hours. You should also see how far you may need to travel to pick the car up or drop it off as many terminals are located quite a distance from suburban areas. It is often cheaper to use terminals during transport, but you may also need to pay a separate fee for storage when doing so.

Modes of Transport

  • Auto Carrier Truck- An auto carrier truck, or auto carrier trailer or semi-truck and trailer usually have ramps where vehicles can easily drive onto the carrier and be secured in place for transport. Used by auto dealerships, manufacturers and auction houses as well as individual car owners, families in the process of moving, celebrities, athletes, military and others, these are economical ways to move a car from one place to another. Open car carriers often have a double decker system where two levels of vehicles can be hauled at one time, which can help cut down the cost per customer when the trailer is fully loaded. A standard auto carrier can haul up to 80,000 lbs., therefore it is important that all vehicle owners have their vehicle emptied of all personal property before the car is loaded onto the carrier. Auto carrier trucks are open forms of transport where vehicles are exposed to the elements just as they are during a drive.
  • Flatbed Tow Truck- A flatbed tow truck usually has a winch to pull the car into place on the truck. These are often used for inoperable cars to be hauled but can also be used for operational cars, heavy machinery and more.
  • Enclosed Transport- An enclosed transport carrier is completely covered to offer a secure environment for cars that prevent encounters with weather, rocks, debris, animals and bugs and other damaging content. The cost will be higher than an open form of transport, but enclosed transport helps ensure cars are delivered in the same condition as when it was loaded. This mode of transport is recommended for high end luxury cars, show cars, collectibles, antiques and classics and other rare or expensive vehicles.
  • Trains- Shipping a car by train is often a cheaper method of transport, but there are some things to consider before booking railway transport. Railway transport offers both open and enclosed transport options and is recommended for those who own classic and collectible cars, expensive luxury cars and other rare vehicles. One of the disadvantages of railway transport is being able to find space on the train. Many trains are booked in advance by dealerships and manufacturers and if the train is loaded to capacity, it can be tough to find a spot for an individual car. For train transport, you need to start checking into booking at least 1-2 months in advance.
  • Airplanes- Shipping a car by airplane is the most expensive way to ship and is usually reserves for extremely expensive vehicles. For example, if you own a used car that has been valued at under $4000, it is a possibility that the cost to ship via air would far exceed the actual value of he car as air shipments can be upward of $5000 or more for shipping. You can ship personal items along with the car when you transport with freight. It is however, considered a very safe mode of transport as no one can access the car as it is loaded onto the plane and only unloaded when the plane lands at the destination.

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!
