Shipping a Car to Alexandria
Making sure that your car is fully prepared for transport can reduce the risk of damage during shipment and can also prevent delays when the driver is completing the visual inspection. Remember the following when you are preparing your car for shipment to Alexandria:
- All cars are inspected before transport. The car should be washed and cleaned inside and out so all areas are visible and easily seen.
- Take all of your personal belongings out of the car before it is picked up. Not only will this lighten the load a bit, but it helps protect your belongings as they will not be covered by insurance during transport.
- Have the car serviced to make sure the battery is charged, tires and brakes are good and that the fluids are at the proper levels.
- Run the fuel down to a quarter tank of fuel. This will give enough fuel for the car to be shifted into a new spot during transport but will not add extra weight to the car that can add money to the shipping bill.
- Ne present when the car is picked up and make sure you carefully read the Bill of Lading before signing it.
Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Alexandria
Compared to the DIY method, A1 Auto Transport’s services can actually be cheaper. Of course, the farther your destination is, the higher the price becomes. Accommodation for the night and food are a pressing matter.
To minimize these costs, auto transport companies use large open carriers. This way, one driver may ship between 5 and 12 cars at a time. Due to this, the amount you pay is minimal.
Also, our carriers offer superior protection to vehicles. Even on open trucks, the car’s exposure to the elements is limited. The surrounding vehicles and the numerous structural beams minimize the space through which something may hit. The internal structure is not affected because the car is not running, so the service is much more car friendly than the DIY method.

International Shipping to/from Alexandria
It can be difficult to find a direct carrier that can take your car abroad, but searching is definitely worth it. Brokers are more expensive to hire, and there’s always the chance they won’t be able to find just one company for your car either.
