Safe And Reliable Centreville Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
While the population of Centreville may not be quite as high as the large metro cities of Alabama such as Birmingham or Montgomery, it is a popular locale for tourists who enjoy the great outdoors and those residents who like to live in a close-knit community that focuses on family oriented entertainment. The town is home to the Cahaba Falls Golf Course and Country Club where members can spend hours playing on an 18-hole course. Cahaba River, next to a national forest is a favored area for campers and hikers as well as those who enjoy rafting, swimming and fishing. For a quieter form of entertainment, you can always take time to stroll through the downtown shops or spend an hour or so visiting the local fine arts studio.
Planning a move to Centreville? While the town itself is small, it’s best to have a motor vehicle on hand if you plan to travel outside of the local area. To do this, you will need to hire a reliable company to handle the auto transport for you. Here are A-1 Auto Transport, we have been working throughout the State of Alabama for more than 25 years and our drivers and those we partner with know the local roadways very well and will schedule everything precisely to ensure your car is delivered fast, yet safely to the new destination.

Areas we serve within Centreville
A-1 Auto Transport operates exclusively as a carrier firm. We operate differently from brokerage firms as documented here. In a nutshell, carrier firms have the resources to ship cars while brokerage firms are only middlemen between the client and carrier firms like ours. The operations of a carrier firm involve interacting with the client from their homes, business addresses and terminals. Years of such service in Centreville have made us familiar with the profile of the city, a great advantage when shipping cars to or from Centreville.
We then go the extra mile and tailor the car shipping experience to the profile of Centreville. Without getting too technical, we serve our Centreville clientele individually, according to their needs, the roads and terminals in their area. This allows us to make deliveries to specific addresses across the city. GPS navigation on the other hand guides us where a specific address may be difficult to locate.
Auto transport services we offer
- Dealer to dealer services: We are a well-established firm, with the experience of shipping different car makes and models. Auto dealers in Centreville, such as the Daimler Mercedes Benz Auto Shop can enjoy exclusive services when keeping up with stock levels or making deliveries to clients across the city and beyond. We offer great discounts when shipping fresh stock from a seaport of your choice, an advantage you want to read more about here.
- Home delivery: Home delivery, also known as door to door service, involves exactly what it suggests. We make car deliveries to any address across Centreville and her environs. We however do it with a twist. We offer to pick the car up from its location and deliver it to the address you wish. For instance, if the car is at a sea depot in Florida or New York, door to door service comes in handy as you don’t have to make the long trip to the seaport to facilitate the shipping process back to your home in Centreville. Provided all the necessary documents are in order, we shall fetch the vehicle ourselves and deliver it to your front porch within the shortest time possible.
- Terminal delivery: This involves having your car dropped off at a terminal closest to the destination location. The terminal could be a car depot or a parking lot near the location. In case one isn’t familiar with the profile of Centreville, like say, guests visiting the city for the first time, we can drop the car at a terminal near a landmark or your point of entry. Terminal service is generally cheaper than door to door, but it attracts parking fees from the use of terminals.
Types of transport
We off both open auto transport and enclosed auto transport and work with various budgets for safe transportation nationwide.
- Open Auto Transport: For an economical way to relocate your car, truck, van or SUV, open auto transport is simple to book and will provide a safe way to move your car without the worry of excess mileage and wear and tear that you would have from driving. Cars are expose to the elements during open auto transport but no more so than when you drive.
*Cars should be operational for open auto transport as they need to be driven onto either a single level or double level trailer for transport. If your car is inoperable, be sure to let the booking agent know so the proper carrier with a lift can be scheduled.
Delivery with open transport can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks depending on the distance of the drive and the number of other cars on the carrier. Typically, unless you are relocating locally, you will not have a definite delivery date but will be given a three-day window for when the car should be delivered. This is because when using open transport, there are up to ten other cars on the carrier and drivers must account for obstacles that can delay delivery including weather, road closures, other customers or accidents.
- Enclosed Auto Transport: For cars that need more protection than what open auto transport can offer, we offer secure enclosed transport services. Cars that are most often found inside an enclosed carrier include classic cars, collectible and antique cars, race cars, luxury cars and ATV’s or motorcycles. With enclosed auto transport, vehicles are loaded onto a single or double level trailer and sealed inside a secure environment that protects from weather, animals and road debris during shipment. Due to the overall protective environment, higher insurance rates for expensive or rare vehicles and faster delivery times, enclosed auto transport is going to cost more than open auto transport.
*Guaranteed Delivery Date: With enclosed auto transport, customers can often have a guaranteed delivery date because with fewer vehicles on the carrier, it is much easier to schedule direct routes and estimate driving times.
Types of cars we ship
Sedans, golf carts, ATVs, motorcycles, vans, trucks, RVs, SUVs, high-end vehicles, wrecked cars, inoperable cars, electric vehicles and heavy machinery like bulldozers are some of the types of cars we ship. Our well-trained team of drivers is able to handle shipping orders for every single type, including multi-car shipping.
