Ship Your Car To Or From Chicago IL

Known as “The Windy City,” Chicago is home to about 2.7 million people and is the third most populated city in the country. In the metro area, there are close to 10 million people and similar to New York and Los Angeles, this is an international location. It is situated in the heart of Cook County and is situated also on Lake Michigan, in the Great Lakes. Also known as “Chi-Town,” this is an important city for international commerce and trade and attracts millions of visitors annually. The attractions in Chicago are plentiful, from Navy Pier on Lake Michigan to the Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue for some of the best shopping in the world. There are museums galore and more than enough shops and dining establishments to keep visitors busy for weeks on end. Lake Michigan also offers a rather unusual offering of recreational activities in the city, which is unusual for a city the size of Chicago.

Car Shipping Companies Near Me

Looking for auto transport companies near you in Chicago? The third largest city in the country, Chicago is a metropolitan hub in a largely rural region. It may be its geographical location that has given Chicagoans their reputation for toughness. Though there are plenty of transportation options within the city limits, travel 10 miles in any direction and you’ll find yourself stranded if you don’t have a car. The better option is to keep your vehicle on hand, and A-1 Auto Transport has the skills to make that happen. To compare all of the auto transport companies in the Chicago area, visit our directory.

Using Chicago Vehicle Transport Companies

When you are looking to book Chicago car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:

  • Ask about tractor-trailer transport: This method might make it a bit longer to receive your vehicle, but in the end, it is one of the most affordable ways to transport your vehicle.
  • Opt for open-air transport: If yours is a traditional vehicle and you don’t mind exposure to the elements, you can save up to 60% or more on open-air transport. This is a good option for those on a budget.
  • Inquire about first-time transport discounts: If this is your first time transporting a vehicle with a particular company, they may be willing to give you a first-timers discount, to encourage you to book with them again in the future when you have transport needs.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Chicago

While open carriers are perfect for shipping most automobiles, because they’re sitting on an open trailer, flying objects or bad weather can still reach them. If you’re the owner of a luxury or classic car, this may not be acceptable.

Because of this, A1 auto transport has prepared a series of enclosed trucks to increase the protection offered to our client’s vehicles. Since your car will not only be strapped in place, but also protected from outside objects, it will be as safe as in your garage at home.

Special Discounts in Chicago

If you live in Chicago, you can get a special discount on all your shipping orders by meeting a few criteria. These are disclosed over the phone, so remember to mention them when calling for a quote.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Chicago

Normal costs of driving a car across the country include meal costs, hotel bills, fuel prices, etc. You have to pay for all these if you plan on driving your car to another state or across longer distances in general.

However, you can share these costs with more than 10 other people by using an auto transport company. Your car will be stationary on a platform along with all the rest, and only the truck that’s transporting them will require fuel.

Also, the driver’s meals will be covered by all the car owners, making the individual price very small. So, even with the little extra the auto transport company is bound to put on top for their troubles, it’s still more affordable than driving the car yourself.

International Shipping to/from Chicago

Although your vehicle may be close to your heart, we recommend doing a bit of research before deciding to ship it abroad to where you’re moving. Some countries release such high import taxes that shipping a car is a worst investment than actually buying a new one. Hopefully, this is not the case and we’ll be able to proceed with the transport.

As for getting your car through customs, preparing all the documentation, and every other part of the shipping process, you can just leave everything to us. We’ll transport your car with one of our carriers if the shipment can be accomplished only on land. If we must pass a mass of water, we’ll use a ship. The alternative, a plane, is far too expensive and difficult to book.

Cheap Transportation Options in Chicago

The more time you have before the move, the more you can afford to look for cheaper options. For example, you can browse the internet for better quotes if you’re not in a rush.

By booking your shipment long in advance, the price you settle on will often be lower. If you take the time to talk to an employee and explain your situation, s/he can sometimes make shipping arrangements that are up to 15% cheaper than the norm.

You can also go through our discounts list to see which you can use and when. You may even qualify for 2 or more at a time.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Chicago

If you’re going to transport a car with our company, you shouldn’t worry too much about safety. All our trucks are extremely safe. They’re maintained regularly and are driven by professionals. Enclosed ones offer slightly more protection from outside elements, but open trucks are good in this aspect too.

In the worst case scenario, we have you covered with an insurance policy. You can also get more insurance if you’re worried. The frequency of road accidents worldwide is high. However, our drivers take every measure possible to avoid them. In case somebody slams into the truck, it will take the brunt of the damage instead of your car.
