Services offered in Atascadero
Transporting a vehicle whose costs read something like $ 1 Million is highly risky and complicated. One of the things that need to happen during the trip is making sure that the cars reach your home in good shape. We have two solutions that offer the best assurance.
- Enclosed shipping secures the vehicles from the external environment, keeping out debris, dirt, dust, and inclement weather. Our covered trucks use modern features to improve safety when loading, shipping, and unloading the cars.
- Door-to-door shipping secures the vehicles helps to secure the process from start to finish by avoiding the transportation terminals. We will pick up the car from anywhere that you send us and deliver it to your driveway.
Shipping cars to or from Atascadero using inexpensive options like open-air shipping is better than driving hundreds of miles across the country. Your vehicle travels on a large trailer similar to those used by auto dealerships and manufacturers. When you choose the terminal shipping option, you will drop-off or pick-up your vehicle at any of the designated depots in a city or town in California. A-1 Auto Transport keeps a large network of such points throughout the country. You can expect to go through long and complex processes when you want to send your car overseas. A-1 Auto Transport will apply its immense experience and extensive networks to keep everything in order, from paperwork to transportation. Our shipping solutions range from air, sea, RoRo, and containerized options.
Cars that we ship
Whether you need to move a bike, a yacht, an SUV, a golf cart or oversized cargo, A-1 Auto Transport has all the solutions that you need.
Preparing the car for transportation
Make sure that you clear out all personal items and valuables from the vehicle. The authorities do not allow us to transport cars loaded with personal stuff. You may leave them at your own risk since they do not get insured. The only way that you can prove if a transporter caused damage to your vehicle while shipping is by taking it through a pre-inspection. Make sure that you have it cleaned beforehand so that you can have a correct report. Some minimal driving will happen to the vehicle unless it is inoperable. Make sure that you keep the car in good shape by running the following steps.
- Leave at least 1/4 of gas in the tank before shipping.
- Make sure that the emergency brake and foot brake work properly.
- Keep the battery properly secured in place and on a full charge.
- Make sure that the tires have enough pressure.
- Check the fluid levels and top off when insufficient.
Removable parts can drop off the truck or get broken during transportation. Have them taken out or use a protective cover on them. Finalize the external preparations by making sure that you fold in the side-view mirrors and remove/retract the antenna. If you have a convertible, keep the top firmly fixed and secure so that even the wind cannot blow into the vehicle. The truck driver has authority to use any means necessary to disable an alarm system during transportation. To avoid such situations, make sure that you deactivate it or share instructions on how to turn it off. Since you are not the one driving the vehicle, make sure that you leave detailed operating instructions for the handlers. Avoid giving out your only set and get spares made instead. Check the local DMV for regulations and enforcement on car ownership and driving.
