Using Bakersfield Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Bakersfield car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Find out whether or not you have to pay in advance: Some auto shipping companies merely require an advance on payment, while others want a deposit and the rest to be paid upon delivery. It helps you to prepare if you know which is expected through the transport company of your choice.
- Ask about the California to Florida route: If you are shipping cross-country, this route has the lowest transport fees. Ask about the route, so you know if you need to expect any additional fees associated with your transport.
- Make sure there are no hidden fees in your contract: In some instances, hidden fees can drive up the cost of transport by hundreds of dollars. Look over your contract in innate detail to ensure that you don’t encounter this problem upon delivery of your vehicle.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Bakersfield
If you’d like to request auto transport, call us now. The sooner you send in your request, the faster we can process it. Last minute requests may cost you more. In rare cases or during the busy parts of the year, we may not be able to accommodate them due to being overbooked.
The procedure for requesting long distance auto transport is the same as the one for requesting any other service. You will have to provide us with some information, like the departure and arrival points, and we’ll see if a carrier is available in the time period/on the date you’ve requested. If there isn’t a carrier available on that day, we may have to reschedule your request on a date closest to it.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Bakersfield
Shipping cars is an art, especially when the cargo is so valuable. A1 auto transport takes many measures to prevent accidents or damages during transport. Each shipment has a standard level of protection and safety afforded to it. However, if you’d like to go beyond this standard and get the best treatment for your car, we can make it happen.
Speak to an employee about your requirements over the phone. He or she will arrange everything according to your specifications. If you’re not sure what type of service you need, but you want superior protection, simply say so to our staff, and they will give you our white glove service.
Special Discounts in Bakersfield
Whether it’s your first time shipping an automobile or it’s just the first time shipping one with our company, you can do it at a discount. A1 auto transport also gives special deals to people shipping more than one car at a time, to seniors, to students, and to military personnel.
Depending on the season you choose to ship your car in, you can get another discount as well. We help Snowbirds trying to escape the cold weather, but we’ve also prepared a few offers for those shipping in the warmer seasons. Call now to see what you can gain.
International Shipping to/from Bakersfield
The biggest challenges international auto shippers face are dealing with customs/ports and coordinating the various parts of the shipment. Only established companies can guarantee no problems will occur, provided the paperwork is good and everything is in place.
A1 auto transport uses its resources effectively to make sure there are no delays. Our drivers will arrive at the port on the day your car is scheduled to be taken on board. You will also receive it during the period we’ve scheduled. A few days before our arrival, we will call you, so you’ll know if any delays occur, as well as the exact day and time frame it will arrive in.
Cheap Transportation Options in Bakersfield
If your version of superior shipping services isn’t air freight or an enclosed carrier, but an option that’s safe and doesn’t force your budget, we have what you’re looking for. In fact, most of our clients are looking for this deal, so we have years of experience providing and refining it.
Enclosed truck auto shipping offers a few extra perks, but they’re notoriously expensive. Instead, using an open carrier or a ship with the RoRo method can be a much better deal. You’ll get a similar level of service at a much cheaper rate. If you’d like more details on our options, you can get informed through our website or by contacting us directly.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Bakersfield
It's not difficult to secure your vehicle for a long distance or for an international transport. However, some basic information will be helpful.
If you usually leave various items in your car, it's good to remove them before our company's staff arrives. Moving objects may collide with their surroundings while the car is on our platform causing varying degrees of damage.
Something you can do before securing your automobile in expectation of our arrival, is tweaking the type of service you ask from us. Services differ greatly in terms of cost, speed, and safety. If you'd like a higher level service, let us know. A1 auto transport can provide any option you need.
