Car and Motorcycle National Transportation Services

When you need a car or motorcycle shipped across the country, you’ll have a few choices to make; from the company you choose to handle the shipping process to the method of transport and place of delivery. The majority of shipping services, whether car, truck, motorcycle, or oversize load, are done via ground shipping, with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii, which are generally done by boat through a process called RORO (roll on, roll off) transport. While there are many companies that offer car and motorcycle transport services, you’ll find that many differ in the level and quality of service they provide, as well as the total price you’re likely to pay.

The Advantages of Shipping Your Vehicle With Professionals

While it may be tempting in some cases to drive your car or motorcycle across the country, there are a number of potential risks involved. One of the main issues with the do-it-yourself method is that you’ll put an inordinate amount of stress on the vehicle due to the daily grind of a long cross country trip. Not only do you risk mechanical problems from the wear and tear that come with long miles and several hours per day on the road, but there’s also potential damage that can occur from the rigors of a long trip. Anything from a damaged windshield due to a small rock kicking up from the large trucks on the highways, but any accident that could occur during the trip can be costly and time consuming. If time is a factor, all the more reason to consult a professional auto transport company so that you don’t have to deal with the stress and potential reality of the scenarios mentioned above.

With a professional shipper, you can choose from several methods of shipment and rest assured that your car or motorcycle will be safely delivered without the stress of driving it yourself and without the time drain of putting in up to eight hours on the road each day. Though there are some subtle differences between how a car and a motorcycle are transported, all of them include minimal risk of damage and the high mileage that comes with driving yourself.

Like most large companies that ship vehicles nationwide, A-1 Auto Transport ships for individuals, businesses, organizations, dealerships, and manufacturers, all of whom appreciate the convenience and affordability of hiring a professional to handle the job. The main benefits of our services include the following:

  • Whether car or motorcycle, one vehicle or an entire fleet, you’re safeguarded against damages in a way that you wouldn’t be otherwise.
  • There’s a multitude of shipping options that include open, enclosed, door-to-door.
  • Satellite tracking and real-time updates on your shipment
  • A licensed car and motorcycle shipping company is required to carry at least the minimum insurance coverage on the vehicles in their care, covering you in the unlikely event of damage.
  • A professional transport company, particularly the top shipping companies in the U.S., incorporate the latest industry advancements and the most modern technology in their shipping workflow.
  • Car shipping experts take the shortest and safest routes to stay away from road construction, high traffic, and poor weather.
  • Crated shipping is the safest form of professional transport for motorcycles. The motorcycle is placed on a wooden pallet and secured for transport and can be completely enclosed if that’s your preference. This transport method is the one most commonly used for bikes, scooters, and small ATVs.
  • Open air shipping methods are the most inexpensive and common form of transport for motorcycles and cars. The vehicles are placed on an open carrier where it is safely secured for the trip. The essential difference between open and enclosed shipping is that an open air carrier leaves the vehicle exposed, both visually and physically.
  • If you prefer enclosed transport, you can also have your vehicle shipped in an enclosed carrier that protects and covers it on all sides. An enclosed carrier is used most often when the vehicle has a high value or the owner is concerned about damages from weather and road debris.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
