What Are All-Terrain Vehicles? All You Need to Know About ATV Transport

All-Terrain Vehicles

All-Terrain motors (e.g., quad bikes) are light, nimble off-road automobiles designed specifically for use on rough terrain. They usually have four to six large wheels and a seat positioned high above the ground. ATVs can be powered by gasoline or electricity. Gasoline models tend to travel faster, and they require more care when moving by ATV shipping services.

Electric All-Terrain types don’t need gas refills. However, this means that your car will not go as fast as one with a traditional engine.

ATV Hauling With A-1 Auto Transport

Our clients that ship ATVs and side-by-side ATVs are often surprised to find that, like motorcycles, it is quite affordable to hire someone to transport smaller automobiles. In fact, when weighed against the potential for damage--we’ve seen a lot of damaged heavy lifting trucks with broken cab windows caused by ATV hauling--it often makes more sense and costs less overall to ship it professionally. We offer an affordable shipping rate and take proper precautions and ensure safe deliveries.

As a general rule, if an ATV doesn’t fit in the bed of your car with the tailgate fully closed and secured, you should hire a professional, especially for longer trips.

We offer both open and enclosed transport options for ATVs, depending on what level of security and damage protection you’re comfortable with. Every automobile we ship is protected against damages by full insurance coverage for the duration of the delivery, and we ship to local terminals in all 50 states (including Alaska and Hawaii), or we can deliver right to your door.

What Makes Our ATV Shipping Services Special?

Air-ride suspension

All of our ATV carriers are equipped with air-ride suspension to provide the smoothest transport experience possible, whether you need shipping across the state or the country. There’s no location we won’t deliver to, and we are happy to offer complimentary cost estimates for all parties interested in having an ATV shipped, either in the U.S. and internationally.

Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage

This is included in every price quote we offer, which is one of the primary advantages of hiring a licensed vehicle shipping company to move an all-terrain vehicle. While it can sometimes be cheaper to go the do-it-yourself route, any damages come out of your pocket when hauling your vehicle, which should not be understated.

Satellite tracking

No need to worry about the progress or status of your vehicle while a reputable carrier like us is transporting it. All of our carriers have GPS tracking capability enabled, allowing our customers to get an instant, real-time update on the location of their all-terrain vehicle at any point during the auto shipping process.

How to Choose the Best ATV Shipping Service

You will want to consider factors like cost; insurance offered, fast shipping, delivery location, great customer service, and the specific dates of moving in choosing among the best ATV shipping companies.

Insurance is vital for your ATV if the ATV is worth a great deal to you; ATV transport services tend not to carry high-dollar value coverage during the entire shipping process. You may also need separate vehicle registration depending on the state or country.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
