Transport services offered in Coalinga
The terms used in international shipping might leave you confused the first time that you want to send your vehicle overseas. Here is what you need to know about the available solutions.
- RoRo: Known as roll-on/roll-off in full, it stands for cargo that gets driven on and off a shipping vessel. We have a network of specialist carriers offering some of the lowest rates that you can find.
- Containerized transport: Special prototypes and high-end automobiles need some level of discretion and extra safety while in transit. Containers offer the best solution due to their airtight and watertight properties.
- LoLo: Also known as lift-on/lift-off in full, it describes the cargo that gets loaded and unloaded using cranes and other special equipment.
A-1 Auto Transport has convenient domestic solutions that you can use when shipping cars to or from Coalinga.
- Open-air shipping is an affordable transportation service for everyone, including dealerships and manufacturers. The vehicles traveling on the truck do not need any special handling as the trucker loads and unloads them driving.
- The trouble with open-air transport is that it leaves your vehicle exposed to the elements. Sending a high-value car in such circumstances can spell disaster to its cosmetics. Enclosed shipping is a better solution, which offers a shield from the external environment.
We have working partnerships with major terminal networks across the country. Whether you need to move one car or an entire fleet, A-1 Auto Transport will find you the most convenient drop-off/pick-up point in your state. Besides convenience and speed, door-to-door shipping secures your vehicle from potential damage. Some physical obstacles and neighborhood restrictions may make it difficult for the delivery to reach your residence.
Cars that we ship
We have reliable solutions for all kinds of automobiles:
- ATVs and motorcycles
- Sedans and station wagons
- Boats and yachts
- Vans and trucks
- RVs and motorhomes
- Farm machinery and industrial equipment
Preparing your car for transportation
You will find the following steps useful in making sure that you have some control over the cost to ship and the delivery timelines.
- Wash the vehicle and keep it free of animal, mud, or plant matter. The USDA will run a quarantine inspection on imports to check for these items. A clean car makes it easy to spot cosmetic damage during the pre-shipping inspection.
- Do not keep contraband goods, flammable material, personal items, and valuables in the vehicle. There are heavy fines and penalties tied to moving prohibited goods, while the personal items will not get protection from the transporter’s insurance.
- Avoid fuelling the vehicle to a full tank when you’re close to transporting it. We need just about 1/4 of gas to drive on or off the truck. Levels beyond that add unnecessary weight and increase the safety risks.
- Off-factory fittings like luggage racks, spoilers, and ground effects should not travel as part of the vehicle. Let the transporter know if you have any changes that affect the car’s original set-up and dimensions. Cover the loose items that you cannot remove, fold in the side-view mirrors, and retract the antenna.
- You need to have the vehicle in good shape to allow for easy handling. Keep the battery fully charged, use well-inflated tires, top-off the fluid levels, and make sure that the brake systems work. Prepare a spare set of keys to hand over to the truck driver.
