Safe And Reliable Autaugaville Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
This very small town in Alabama is home to fewer than 1000 residents but what it lacks in size, it greatly makes up with natural beauty and plenty to do for fun as well as to earn a living.
Autaugaville is a town that has several landmarks celebrating its history. One such site is Lassister House which is a historic residence listed as part of the National Register of Historical Places in the United States and is quite popular with tourists visiting the area.
The median home value in Autaugaville is more than fifty-percent lower than comparable homes throughout the state and while the median income is also lower when compared to larger areas, the cost of living in town is considerably lower than large metro areas. This combined with the extremely low rate of crime and the employment opportunities in construction, emergency services, transportation and moving is a great reason for families to relocate to the area.

Preparing your car for transportation to Autaugaville
Before shipping your car to locations nationwide or overseas it needs to be prepared. Here are some tips to help you prepare your car.
- Confirm the items that need to be removed from the car before transportation. You will need to talk to your shipper beforehand to know the personal items that need to be removed from your vehicle before being handed over for transportation.
- Clean the vehicle. Ensure that your car is thoroughly washed and shine it so that it looks presentable when the shipper is picking it. Also, take note of any dents, discolored paint or scratches on the car and share them with us so that there is no misunderstanding when the car is dropped off.
- Disable the car alarm. The probability of your vehicle’s alarm going off during shipment is very high because of the movement during transit. It is therefore advisable to disable it to avoid it becoming a nuisance during shipping. If possible, also have a spare key made in case the one handed over to the vehicle shipping company gets lost.

Modes of Transport Used for Autaugaville Car Shipping
- Open Car Carrier-These carriers are the standard, low cost way to ship a car. They can be found in single level for up to two cars or double level for up to ten cars. Cars are exposed to weather, insects, road debris and other elements as they ship, but open auto transport is just as safe for a car as driving on your own is. The best thing about it is that your car will be delivered to the destination without the added mileage or wear and tear that driving will incur. Ideal for cars driven daily and other standard vehicles.
- Enclosed Car Carrier- A protective environment for cars that need a secure relocation where weather and other potentially damaging elements cannot come into contact as they ship. Enclosed carriers are also available in single and double level and you can haul one or more cars as well as personal content inside the enclosed trailer or container. Ideal for classic, exotic, vintage, high end luxury and other collectible and rare vehicles. It is also great for motorcycles and ATV’s.
- Trains-A low cost option that offers both open and enclosed environments for all types of motor vehicles.
- Airplanes- Air freight is generally reserved for highly expensive cars and trucks and those that are too fragile to handle a road trip. Be prepared for a higher rate to ship as air freight is the priciest way to move a vehicle.
Why Enclosed and Air Freight Rates Can Be High
Open modes of transport and even railway shipping will often have lower rates than enclosed auto carriers and airplanes. There are a few reasons that both enclosed auto carriers and air freight rates can be considerably higher than open carriers and train shipping.
For air freight, the jet fuel used in planes is expensive, and since fuel is factored into shipments, that alone can cause shipping with air service to be much higher than ground shipments.
With enclosed auto carriers on the ground, the environment inside the carrier is secure and some are even climate controlled.
The motor vehicles that typically ship on a plane or inside an enclosed carrier are extremely expensive or they are highly valuable due to age or condition, and this means the insurance premium will be higher and the care given to ensure safe transport will be higher than a car loaded with nine or ten others on an open carrier. This does not mean that open transport is not safe, because it is a highly trusted way to move a car and thousands of cars are hauled safely on open carriers every day. What this means is that the drivers must pay close attention to those delicate vehicles to ensure they remain 100% intact and in extremely good condition throughout shipment. These are often irreplaceable vehicles and even the slightest mistake could result in irreparable damage or excessive fees to repair, and it is the carrier’s responsibility to ensure those things do not happen.
One other reason that enclosed car carriers can be more expensive to hire is that carrier companies generally prefer to haul as many cars at one time as possible, so they can maximize their earnings. With fewer cars inside an enclosed carrier, the company must make up for lost profits by charging more for service.
