Safe And Reliable Carbon Hill Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Carbon Hill is a suburban town located in the west of Walker County. It started off as a result of mining, although the residents have tried their hands at other different ventures since the collapse of the mining industry. As one of the leaders in the auto shipping industry, we have been privileged to serve the residents of this great town, Alabama, and America as a whole for over 25 years. A-1 Auto Transport has modernized the process of shipping cars to or from Carbon Hill to now include options such as getting quotes online. This has greatly reduced time and improved the efficiency of the whole process as customers now do not need to visit our offices to get a quote or schedule a service.

Services we provide
Our service portfolio is quite comprehensive. We offer our customers numerous choices to pick from including the flexibility to custom-fit your own shipping services. Some of the services include:
- Port to port shipping: Clients such as big corporations can deliver and pick-up their own cargo, to and from ports. Under this service, we only facilitate the movement of the cargo from one port to the other. This process is cheaper and faster for the client. It is, however, very costly if you lack the knowledge on how to clear your cargo from a port and, if you don’t have the right equipment to haul your goods from the destination port.
- Interstate car shipping: If you are looking to ship your car from one state to the other and don’t want the hassle associated with the move, then you are in luck. A-1 Auto Transport can help you haul any kind of car to any of the 50 States across America and even internationally. We will help you avoid the long tiresome drives across unfamiliar roads and keep your car from accumulating unnecessary mileage.
- Enclosed shipping: An enclosed or covered mode of transport is the safest mode available. Your car is placed in either, a soft shell or hard-shell container/enclosure, depending on the level of security you want. Both protect your vehicle against debris damage but the hard shell one also protects against harsh weather, theft, and even prying eyes.
- Open shipping: Your car will be driven onto a single level or double level carrier for delivery and it will be fully exposed to the same elements you would expect were you driving the car on our own. Open transport is the least expensive way to relocate a car via interstate auto transport.
Enclosed transport will cost more
The price for enclosed auto transport services can be double the cost of open transport, but if you need to ship a car worthy of enclosed services, the rates are worth it. First, with the added security of a completely sealed environment, your car will not encounter damaging elements during shipment. Second, with fewer cars on a trailer, it’s possible to have a guaranteed delivery date as well as a guaranteed pickup date so you won’t need to guess when the vehicle will be delivered.
Types of vehicles we ship
To date, there is no type of vehicle we haven’t been able to transport. We are equipped to haul even the bulkiest and the most technical vehicles. Some of the most frequent vehicle we move include:
- Tractors and other farming vehicles
- Sports utility vehicles which come in different shapes and sizes
- Electric powered vehicles
- Recreational vehicles and motorhomes
- Exotic cars
- Classic and antique vehicles
- Golf carts
How to prepare your vehicle for shipping
The process of preparing your car for shipping is quite tedious and needs absolute dedication to ensure that the move is not only successful but is without any hiccups or delays. Some of the steps include:
- Planning.When you plan your shipping expedition ahead, you avoid the last minute rush and the possibility of forgetting something because you will have ample time to go over the logistics.
- Removing any personal items from your car. You are required to remove any items in your car before handing it over to the shipping company. Failure to do so may attract hefty fines and cause delays.
- Leave about a quarter tank of gas in the tank.
- Take pictures of any dents and scratches on your car.
- Service your vehicle.
- Make copies of your car keys.
- Sign the bill of lading.
