Safe And Reliable Avon Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Avon is a small, agrarian town on the southeastern corner of Houston County in Alabama. The US 84 offers the most important connection between the town and other parts of the country. It passes through the northern border of the town while running from east to west. With less than 1000 residents, shipping cars to or from Avon might come at great pains.
With less than 1000 residents, Avon is a quiet little town and due to size you won’t find many businesses in the local sector, but there are many great places that locals enjoy spending time together in neighboring cities including Dothan and Ashford just a mile or so outside of town. From the BluePlate Restaurant to Cookie’s Corner Cafe, visitors will find several enticing restaurants where a good, home cooked meal can be consumed. There are also several local parks with walking trails, great places for nature hikes and playground equipment for children within a short drive.
Avon offers a locale with affordable rent as well as lower sales prices on homes, which makes it a great area to live while you commute 15 or 20 minutes to a neighboring city or town for work.

How Cars Can be Shipped to Avon
Cars can be shipped to or from Avon with open or enclosed transport options. Let’s look at your options now.
Open Car Carrier- An easy to book mode of transport that offers low rates and safe transport for all kinds of cars, trucks, SUV’s and other vehicles. Cars need to be operational as they need to be driven onto the open car carrier. Depending on whether the carrier is a single level or double level, the car can be hauled alone or with up to nine or ten other cars at one time. The more cars on a loaded truck, the less expensive it can be for vehicle owners to ship as each car will assume a portion of the fuel cost. Open carriers are the standard car delivery method for thousands of cars shipping daily and it is preferred for vehicles that are driven frequently.
Enclosed Car Carrier- If you need a secure environment that prevents the car from encountering the elements, then you need enclosed transport. A little more expensive than an open car carrier, enclosed carries offer all the protection necessary to keep expensive and otherwise valuable cars safe as they move from one place to another. There are fewer enclosed carriers on the roadways which means you may even be able to get a guaranteed delivery date when you book service.
Air Freight- Preferred for those ultra-expensive luxury cars, Supercars and fragile cars that must be shipped fast, air shipments are available nationwide. Shipping on a plane will cost a great deal more than interstate shipments, but if the value of the car is high, it is worth checking into.
Railway (Train)- There are no train stations in Avon, but don’t let that sway you from the money you can save when you ship on the railway. Trains offer open and enclosed options and the rates are lower than interstate enclosed or air freight. If there is no station near you, you can either drive the car to drop it off or you can book interstate transport to deliver to the station or from the station to your new home in Avon.
