Classic cars have always been something that my dad and I bond and connect over. About 5 years ago, he bought a 1967 Chevy Chevelle and planned to restore it. He got so many new parts to go on it and has been working on it himself over the years. On your website, I saw the section that talks about the importance of transporting classic cars and that there is a certain way it has to be done to meet your standards. I really respect this because a lot of time, money and energy is put into restoring a classic car and taking good care of them is something that every transporting industry should have in mind.

 My dad and I have a really nice relationship and we bond when we work on his car together. We can talk about anything and everything when tinkering on his car because it is our space to let loose. My dad has always been an inspiration of mine and whenever we are together, I cherish out time. He works in the oil and gas industry, so I hardly ever see him. He works two to three weeks on and one week off. He does not get weekends off either so when I see him, I know that I have to cherish the time we spend. We usually work on his car because he wants to finish it before I go to college, so it is a goal of ours to work on it enough to where we can at least get it back on the road and not just a frame with wheels and an engine.

 My dad also painted the transmission a bright, hot pink color for me because it was the heart of the car. It makes me happy knowing that we will always have that one thing that we bond over, and that thing is classic cars. He taught me a lot about cars, and it blows my mind how much goes into making them. There are so many little bolts and screws that are crucial when making a car be able to run. I never knew the amount of time, money, and energy goes into making the things that we use every day. Classic cars have more that go into them when restoring them too. This is because the parts that are needed in them are very hard and rare to find. We experienced this whenever we needed certain fenders and a new windshield for my dad’s car. We waited for a couple months for his windshield and when it came in, it was cracked! So, we had to order a new one and it was just a really complicated situation. But we were able to get the windshield in the car and it is starting to look like it is ready to drive again here soon.

 I am really excited to be able to make new memories in that car because some of my best memories come from the days driving with my dad. There was this one time that we went into a car wash shortly after he got the car. We went into the auto car wash and when the water started to spray, the seals around the windows and windshield and doors were so bad that they started to leak and let water inside the car. We started to crack up with laughter as we were trying to stop the water the best we could with the little napkins that we had in the car. We ended up so soaked in water and soap that we had to get out and air dry before we hit the road again. I love this moment because it was such a shock and funny thing at the same time, and it helped us figure out that we had some serious work to do on the car before it would be what my dad wanted it to be. The care and appreciation for classic cars has such a big community and I love it because people bond and create friendships through classic cars.

 And the fact that they are all over the United States and the word is really cool. Mecum auctions are one of my favorite things to go to because there are hundred of cars in one place that can be looked at. It’s so cool to know that the streets were flooded with all these types of cars. People used to think it was normal seeing a 1967 Chevelle driving by but today, it is like seeing a gem. Mecum actions are cool because it shows how cars have evolved and changed over time right in front of your eyes. The auctioneer talks so fast too and it is really cool that people can talk like that and understand them as well.

 Classic cars have created a community of people that all have one thing in common: the love and passion for classic cars. There are so many jobs involved in them as well and it is a great way to bring something old back to life. My grandpa transports cars for Jay Leno all across the country, so I know how it is having to sacrifice certain things for that job. But he has gained a community of supporters while doing it, so it all worked out the way it was supposed to in the end. Classic cars are a really big part of my life and it just shows the influence that these cars have on people of all ages. I am really blessed that my family is centered around classic cars the way that we are. I have a hidden passion for them and I love working on the car almost as much as I love doing it alongside my dad. He is my number one supporter, and classic cars has opened my eyes to that even more than they already were.

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!
