Shipping Cars to Alvin
Shipping a motor vehicle can be a daunting task for many people, especially those that may have never shipped a car before. A-1 Auto Transport has the information you need to successfully have a vehicle transported with stress-free ease.
How to get auto transport quotes
The best way to find reliable auto transport and get company quotes is to do an online search using Google, Yahoo, Bing or MSN. Many of the transport companies have online quote request forms that you can fill out right from your computer. The best way to get a quote is to call the company directly. When you call, you can provide many details about the vehicle that you may not be able to provide via an online form. The more details provided, the more accurate your quote will be.
How to prepare a car for transport
You need to check the entire car for damage before shipping and be sure to note any damage that is preexisting on the car. Clean the car inside and out and be sure to remove all personal items and important paperwork. You also need to remove any aftermarket stereos, DVD players, GPS equipment, detachable radio and CD player faceplates, TV’s and monitors and other removable electronics. This will reduce the risk of theft during transport. If you have toll stickers you may want to remove those as they can be accidentally scanned during transport if the carrier has to go through a toll booth. Fold your mirrors back and antennas down and disarm the car alarm.
Door to door or terminal to terminal
Door to door transport is essentially the standard way that carriers pick up and deliver vehicles. It’s convenient because you can arrange to meet the carrier at your home or office location and won’t need to deliver the car to another location that may be out of the way to your location. Terminal to terminal is another option that you may have. You will need to deliver the car to a shipping terminal where the carrier will pick it up at a later date for delivery. Some terminals will charge a storage fee while the car is waiting to be picked up, but generally, terminal to terminal shipping will cost less, minus the storage fee, than door to door shipping.
