Best Shipping Auto Transport Out of State

If you are moving across the country, you might want to use the services of a shipping agency, such as A1 Auto Transport, especially if you are buying a new one overseas or if you are transporting a classic one.

A company of the kind is going to take care of everything that you might have in mind but you need to be prepared to wait quite a bit. Shipping a car isn’t anything like shipping a simple package and it’s not going to happen in an instant.

Deliveries in the U.S. would usually have a window of about 4 weeks from when the car is loaded to when it’s offloaded at the destination. Auto transport out of state includes international shipping, on the other hand, might take between 6 and 8 weeks. And at A1 Auto Transport service, we understand all aspects of the domestic and international auto transportation services.

Covered or Uncovered Carriers.

This is the first choice you have to make. An uncovered carrier is going to be cheaper but your car is going to be exposed to the elements as well as to the debris. A covered carrier, on the other hand, is going to provide your car with maximum protection but it’s about 60% more expensive.

Scheduled Pickup or Open Transport.

In the majority of cases, the shipping company is going to contact you when there is an available truck. If you prefer to go for an exact date – it’s going to cost you more money. However, you can negotiate a good deal on your own.

Door to Door or Terminal to Terminal.

The door-to-door service is undoubtedly the most convenient one for you to use but it’s also the one which is going to cost you more money. Terminal to terminal, on the other hand, is more affordable.

Research the Prices and the Company.

Now, it is absolutely critical to research the companies that you want to use in order to sort out the best ones. Make sure that you go through different reviews in order to make the best choice. Regardless of the winner, make sure to collect at least three different quotes from different companies in order to determine which one will give you the best service and the best price, of course.

Best Auto Transport Shipping Cost
Check the Insurance and Other Pricing Variables.

Of course, there are quite a few things apart from the ones we’ve mentioned which are going to determine the total cost of the service. For instance, the insurance that is provided by the shipping agency might not be enough and you can purchase additional coverage.

Furthermore, you have to account for the location of the transportation, the size of the vehicle, the season as well as a wide range of different things. Also, make sure that you’ve checked the car for damages in advance in order to ensure that you’ve filled out the condition report perfectly in the Bill of Lading.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
