A-1 Auto Transport offers the best coverage in the region, running through all parts of California and every state in the U.S.
Our transport services in Arvin
- A specialty service like enclosed shipping offers the best level of protection for high-end luxury cars and classics. The vehicles travel in a covered truck that shields them from the elements. At A-1 Auto Transport, we understand that each of these automobiles has unique needs that need special handling. Our insurance cover cracks the six and seven-figure limits.
- There are two types of transport trailers used in open-air shipping. Multi-car rigs usually have twin decks with enough room to carry between 8-10 cars at once, which help to drive down the costs even further. Flatbeds can transport a lesser number of vehicles making them slightly expensive for long hauls.
- A-1 Auto Transport offers affordable drop-off and pick-up options in major ports and transportation depots across California. Terminal shipping offers better convenience if you happen to live nearby.
- We also have a door-to-door pick-up and delivery option. There is an extra fee charged for the service. You might also have to wait a little longer for the arrival and therefore recommend that you try to make early bookings.
- We can help you to move your car to an overseas country by plane or by ship. Shipping by air offers the quickest delivery times. It is also the most expensive. Sea transport is the cheapest especially when you opt for the roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) option. You may choose a shipping container to secure the vehicle from potential damage while in transit.
Cars that we ship
We have complete solutions covering all areas when it comes to shipping cars to or from Arvin, which include all passenger cars, vans, trucks, farm machinery, boats, motorcycles, and others.
Preparing your car for shipping
Find out if you can leave a few personal items inside the car during transportation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) places restrictions on keeping personal goods and valuables inside the vehicles. Giving the vehicle a thorough wash will help you to check or all the noticeable damage. Make a record of all the chips, dents, and discolorations. Use a camera to take dated photographs of all sides of the car. Try to run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank. The federal authorities recommend this level so that we can keep the vehicles safe throughout the trip. Too much fuel can leak out during transportation, creating unnecessary safety risks. Try to remove the external accessories that could get damaged during transportation. The insurance cover usually doesn’t protect aftermarket spoilers, fog lights, and ground effects. Use protective padding to secure the non-detachable parts and make sure that you fold in the side-view mirrors. Keep the car in good shape for driving by running the following maintenance checks.
- Top off the brake fluid, coolant, engine oil, and transmission fluid.
- Check your tires to make sure that they have enough pressure.
- Get the fluid leaks and other mechanical problems fixed.
- Keep the battery on a full charge and make sure that the terminals work.
Note all the significant changes to the vehicle and share the record with your transporter. It will help them reconstruct the insurance policy since it usually offers coverage for cars in the original factory setting. Disable the alarm system to keep it from going off during transportation. You can also write instructions on how to deactivate it and share this with the truck driver. Toll tags and passes could run your car through unnecessary charges on the highway. Have them removed or deactivated since you will not need them for the trip.
