A-1 Auto Transport | Cheap State To State Car Towing

If you find yourself in need of affordable state to state car towing services, there’s several steps you can take to help increase your chances of finding a cheap car shipper that still provides quality service. In this article, we’ll review some of the best methods for finding an affordable and reliable shipping option that gives you the most bang for your buck.

Learn What Services Are Available & What Works Best For You

If you’ve never had a car towed long distance before, you may be surprised to find that there’s quite a few options; from simple transport to door-to-door shipping, open versus enclosed towing, multiple vehicles as opposed to single car shipping, expedited transport, inoperable vehicle shipping, and even more specialty services beyond those.

As a general rule, most shipping is done on an open air carrier, meaning the car is not protected on all sides as it would be with an enclosed carrier. Open air car transport is generally done with several vehicles hauled at the same time on one carrier, most often between eight to 12 vehicles. Enclosed carriers on the other hand, tend to move only a couple cars at once, usually either two or four.

Compare Prices By Getting Multiple Estimates

Just like when you’re buying a car, you don’t want to necessarily go with the first option you find in your search for state to state car towing. Prices and quality of service can vary from one company to another and spending a few minutes exploring your options can save you both time and money if you know how to go about it.

As far as the cost is concerned, the best method of finding a cheap shipper is to contact a few companies that offer vehicle transport services and see what they provide as a cost estimate. While the prices should be more or less in the same neighborhood, they will be different from one company to another. Every auto transport company in the business should provide you with a free estimate based on some basic information about the shipment you need towed. If you encounter a company that requires some sort of payment or commitment before getting a price quote, move on to the next one. The industry wide standard is that estimates are free and it should take no more than a few minutes with each one of them. If you need an idea of how the process should go—and how easy and quick it should be—call us at the number below and we’ll be happy to help.

Choosing A State To State Shipping: Finding The Right Fit

It’s easy enough to understand the difference between an expensive car shipper and an affordable one, there are sometimes reasons for the price difference. As mentioned above, there are different services and some of them do cost more than others. Enclosed auto transport and door-to-door service add to the overall cost and some companies may offers those as a default, rather than explaining that it’s not your only option.

Understanding the difference state to state transport services offered is key information to be armed with when you contact a prospective car shipper. It’s recommended that you call up any companies you’re considering and briefly chat with them about your options. This way, you’ll be able to get a feel for their customer service, as well as make sure they’re being forthright with you when it comes to your options and the prices that go along with them.

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!
