Car Haulers

Car Haulers
Car Haulers

One of the best ways to transport vehicles is by using car haulers. Also known as vehicle carriers, these vehicles are typically able to move multiple automobiles at once, which makes them ideal for many people who transport a lot of vehicles either because they frequently sell them or buy them, or for people that own lots of automobiles. This is often the case with auto collectors who want to take their cars to auto shows and they need to move them all at once. There are many reasons to use a vehicle carrier and even if you’re just an individual with one vehicle that needs to be moved, it might be best to contract someone who owns a car hauler to pick up your automobile and move it for you. 

The fact that auto haulers can hold so many cars really makes them ideal for people who own multiple cars and may want to transport them together either to a new storage location or possibly to classic auto shows. Moving them all at once typically is a lot easier and more convenient than trying to get them all transported separately. Using an auto hauler is also much safer than actually driving the cars because the hauler keeps them well up off the ground and out of the way of most flying rocks on the road or other hazards. Auto carriers are also a lot harder to miss by other cars, so it is less likely that someone will accidentally crash into you on the road. Of course, if there is ever an accident with a vehicle hauler, it is most likely going to be by far the biggest and heaviest vehicle in the accident so that will help keep most of the damage away from the vehicles being transported.

In addition to the obvious advantage of being able to ship a lot of cars in one trip, there are other great benefits to using a vehicle hauler for all your vehicle transportation needs. The fact that car haulers are designed perfectly to be able to safely ship lots of cars makes the entire process much easier. There is no hassle with trying to hook up a automobile to a tow truck or position the vehicle perfectly to get it onto a flatbed. You can easily load up an auto carrier with all your cars in less time than it would take to attach a tow truck to one vehicle and start down the road.

Another advantage, if you are contracting someone to move the cars for you, is that you can share the cost with other automobile owners if you don’t have enough cars to fill it. People often have just one or two cars which need to be moved so they will use an auto shipping service to have them moved. Transportation services go to several customers, each with one or two cars, and loads them all on the auto hauler. Since they are moving all these cars in one trip, it saves them a lot of money and that savings can be passed on to the customers. Taking advantage of these savings is common for people who are all into classic cars since they are often all going to the same show. Four or five people in the same area can agree to go in on renting a car hauler each show so they don’t each have to foot the entire expense of having their car transported separately.

Should I Use A Car Hauler Or Auto Transport Company?

Having cars moved by an auto shipping company is the most common way since most people don’t need to have a vehicle hauler for everyday use. It’s typically easy to work with a car shipping company to ensure they have a automobile hauler available for your use on whichever days you need them. Once you’ve used their services a few times and you become a regular customer, it is going to be quick and easy to make the arrangements ahead of time, since you’ll know the exact information they will need in order to book your reservation. If you ever need to transport different types of cars than normal, make sure to let the company know so they can be ready since they may be booking other customers with your cars as well to help earn more money. Just be sure to give all the details they will need each time and you’ll be sure to have a nice and smooth transaction every time.

People of every age have loved auto haulers for years because of their interesting look and the fact that they are normally carrying either the latest and greatest cars which are just being released or beautiful classic cars or possibly even the ultra high-end cars that are on their way to a dealership. It is a fun and exciting experience to have your cars loaded on these amazing vehicles to be safely moved to whatever location you need them. You’ll love the way your beautiful car looks on the back of a car hauler and the fact that it is also one of the most affordable ways to move a car is just one more big advantage!

No matter why you need to ship cars or how many you need to be moved, the best way to have them shipped is by using a hauler. The convenience and safety provided by these custom trucks cannot be matched by any other type of transporting vehicle. Car haulers were designed with moving multiple cars at once while ensuring the safety and convenience of each car owner during every trip. In addition to the many other benefits, using a carrier is also one of the most economical ways of transporting vehicles there is. There is truly no downside to using a car hauler for all your auto transportation needs. Fill out our online quote form to get a free quote on your car transport!

The History Of Car Haulers

A key catalyst in the growth of this vital industry is none other than the internet. The World Wide Web has opened up a number of opportunities for both consumers and businesses alike since coming into mainstream use in the 80’s. By allowing consumers to search marketplaces which were once beyond their reach, the internet is allowing business to reach new clients that were previously beyond their limits. 

One industry, in particular, that is seeing a great amount of growth due to the advancing car haulers techniques is the auto sales market. Online markets such as E-bay and have seen a huge influx of business simply due to the fact that they are now easily able to stretch into marketplaces around the globe which were unreachable before. The internet allows them to not only reach these new customers but to also provide a one-stop shop for their entire auto purchasing and shipping needs. 

Other advances in technology have also helped to expand the auto hauling industry’s reach and capabilities. For instance, GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) transmitters allow auto transport companies, as well as their clients, to track the shipment of any vehicle throughout the entire process from one destination to another. 

Through modern means of communication and updated mapping databases, auto companies are able to delegate incredibly efficient transport routes for their shipments by car haulers. This is a huge advantage to all customers because it allows for a shorter shipping time. These up-to-date mapping databases are also incredibly useful when it comes to re-directing transport routes. In instances such as natural disasters, where the original transport route is shutdown, companies are now able to quickly and efficiently plan out a new route to keep your transport from being delayed for too long. 

Another growing field that is adding more efficiency and value to the car haulers industry is the wave of green thinking which many companies are adopting. Through programs such as the EPA’s SmartWay Transport, auto transport companies are able to learn ways in which they can conserve energy rather than continuing the wasteful consumption of resources. By teaming up with the EPA group, companies are given the opportunity to truly practice responsible business practices and show that they are willing to preserve the world in which they do business. 

As technology continues to advance, there is no doubt that the car haulers industry will continue to expand into new horizons. This is a great thing for consumers who will be getting a great range of benefits by utilizing these emerging technologies.

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!
