Transport services offered in Calhan
When you have a daily use vehicle, your main priorities when moving it lie around the cost to ship and the delivery timelines. Open-air transport offers the most convenient solution. It is one of the most commonly used transport standards as well as the most economical.
The open-air option leaves the vehicles exposed to the elements and other roadside hazards. It is not a risk that you would want to take when you have a highly expensive vehicle or a rare classic. Enclosed or covered transport steps in as the safest and most reliable solution. Your car will get added protection and the most secure handling throughout the process.
We have two options to help you send off or receive your package when shipping cars to or from Calhan:
- Terminal shipping is the cheapest standard. We will collect or deliver the vehicle at one of the appointed depots in Colorado.
- Door-to-door shipping helps to increase safety and convenience. Instead of sending your vehicle to the terminal, our driver will come to the closest collection or delivery point that you pick.
From small packages to oversized vehicles, A-1 Auto Transport offers the best solutions for international shippers. Our team coordinates every aspect of the process starting from the paperwork stage up to the delivery point. Our RoRo service offers one of the most affordable ways to send your vehicle abroad.

How to prepare a car for shipping
Even though we guarantee to give your vehicle the best care and attention, you might need to take some precautionary measures to secure the process.
- Remove all items from the vehicle including the registration documents, valuables, and other personal effects.
- Detach all the custom accessories from the interior and the exterior. Aftermarket DVD players, speakers, GPS, spoilers, and luggage racks should not travel as part of the vehicle.
- Clean the vehicle and run a visual inspection of the exterior. Try to record the cosmetic imperfections on the body. Take dated photographs of all sides including close-up shots of the damage.
- Get your car repaired if it has aggressive fluid leaks and mechanical problems. You should let the transporter know in advance if you plan to send a faulty vehicle.
- Top-off the fluid levels. You might need to add anti-freeze or coolant depending on the destination.
- Try to leave about 1/4 of gas in the tank. Do not keep too much fuel as it may compromise on safety.
- Cover the loose parts on the exterior, retract the antenna, and fold-in the side-view mirrors.
- Deactivate the toll tags and the alarm system. Keep a spare set of keys for the truck driver during the collection.
- Stay informed on all the rules and regulations involved in the shipping process by checking the local Department of Transportation (DOT).
