Alamo, Texas Professional Auto Shipping Services
Home to nearly 20,000 people and known as “The Refuge to the Valley,” Alamo, Texas was named due to the massive number of Alamo Cottonwood trees that were found growing throughout the area. The land was owned by the Alamo Land and Sugar Company and the city was incorporated in 1924. Alamo is a well-known winter haven for those escaping the harsh and cold winters up north. The City of Alamo is situated right next to the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge and more than 160,000 people visit the refuge each year including nearly 100,000 that come just for birdwatching. Many of the tourists opt to stay in lodging in Alamo resorts and motels and bring a great deal of revenue to the area. Alamo is a beautiful city surrounded by woods and wildlife and hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking are always in season. There are numerous places for retail shopping and dining as well as annual festivals and holiday events that have activities and fun for all ages.

Let A-1 Auto Transport Answer Your Car Shipping Questions
How does motor vehicle transport work?
When you find a company and hire them, they will gather information about your car, the location of pick-up and delivery and will give you a price quote. You need to provide as much detailed information about your car as possible. If the car has been modified in any way they need to know this as many types of modifications can alter the size of a car. Be prepared to pay a little more if the car is a large vehicle like an SUV or large truck. If your car is inoperable you need to let them know as many companies do not transport inoperable cars. Once they have the information and give you a quote they will schedule pick-up. Most companies cannot give a definite date for pick-up or delivery but will provide you with a 3-day window. This is due to road and weather and other issues that can arise during travel that could possibly delay a carrier.
Do I need to be present when the car is picked up or delivered?
You need to be present as the carrier will need you to sign the Bill of Lading. If you are not able to be there in person you need to let the agent know and will need someone else to be present in your place.
Are all auto transport companies insured?
All auto transport companies in the United States must be registered with the US DOT and they must carry insurance to cover the vehicles they transport. You can check with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to verify registration and insurance. Also, ask for proof of insurance from the company.
How long does it take to ship a car?
Shipping times will vary depending on road conditions, accidents on the interstates, weather and other customers. Customers not being present or being late to meet a carrier to get their vehicles is the number one reason for delayed delivery to other customers. In general, you should expect the following delivery times for vehicles:
- Coast to Coast: 7-10 days
- North to South- 3-7 days
- East or West Coast to Midwest- 4-7 days
- International: 14-28 days
