Using Albany Vehicle Transport Companies
Traveling to this part of New York requires careful planning, particularly during the winter months. Consider some tips ahead of your transport booking:
- If you are transporting in the winter, prepare your vehicle: For instance, if you don’t have snow tires, you should definitely get some before transporting in the winter, so that you can drive your vehicle to your destination upon its arrival. If you have a convertible, make sure the top is up. Do everything you can to protect your vehicle in the elements.
- Choose a company with experience in this area of the state: If you are moving a vehicle during the winter, you need a company that knows how to safely and effectively transport your vehicle at this time of the year. This is something to ask about in advance.
- Find out how you need to pay when picking up your vehicle: Depending on the day of the week, the time of day or even where you are picking up your vehicle, you may not be able to pay just any way. For instance, if it’s at night, you might only be able to pay in cold, hard cash. In the day, you might be able to process a credit card. The point is to ask in advance, so you are prepared no matter what.

You can easily look up a car shipper’s license via the U.S. Department of Transportation website. The USDOT is responsible for keeping an up-to-date list of interstate transport companies and their federal registration status. There are multiple ways to initiate this search. You can either enter the company’s USDOT Number or Docket Number or you can search by state. The latter will bring up a list of all of the interstate transport companies that are currently registered with the government - including those based out of Albany.
A1 Auto Transport is excited to offer New York seniors a special discount when shipping a vehicle. Military personnel and students are also eligible for specific discount offers.

Most auto transport companies provide different ways in which you are able to track your vehicle while in transit. It is encouraged that this is discussed with auto transport companies early on so that there are no surprises. Typically, transport companies will provide the following options in which you can track your vehicle:
- Periodic texts from the driver or the transport company with updates.
- Online tracking system that allows you to search using a specific number on your contract.
- Updates only when requested by the vehicle owner.
The State of New York is responsible for regulating all auto transport companies that operate within Albany. Specifically, the New York State Department of Transportation’s Motor Carrier Compliance Bureau is tasked with enforcing the regulations. As the capital of New York, any license requests, regulation enforcement, or complaint investigation that involves auto transport companies throughout the entire state take place in Albany. For companies that do business across state lines, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) becomes responsible for issuing vehicle identification numbers and licensing to vehicles.
In order to ship your vehicle, you will need to provide the transport company with a copy of up-to-date car registration, a current driver’s license, and proof of car insurance. Furthermore, if the vehicle has a lien then you will need to provide written permission from the lien holder stating that they approve of the vehicle’s transport.
