Safe And Reliable Columbiana Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

Mayor Stancil Handley who was elected as Mayor of Columbiana in 2012 once said, “There’s always something happening in Columbiana” and he was certainly correct about that because between the local parks and fun attractions, Columbiana is most definitely a city that is constantly on the move and always has something interesting going on. Columbiana is the county seat of Shelby County, located in Alabama and is known as one of the best places to live and work in Alabama. This city is home to nationally known chain shopping stores including Ace Hardware, Dollar General and a few others but it is also a great place for small, locally owned shops and has a vibrant downtown filled with shops that cater to everything from food and drink to clothing, appliances and more. For outings, you will find museums, sports complexes, parks and playgrounds and more for all ages.

If you intend to visit the city, it is better to do so with your own car. A-1 Auto Transport can help you ship the vehicle from any location in the world.

Services we provide

  • Multiple car shippingWith over 30 auto carriers, we can ship numerous vehicles all at once. This service is often requested by auto dealers who frequently ship a huge number of vehicles at a go. Since most of the costs associated with shipping arise from having to pick vehicles from different locations, the auto dealers make massive savings that they can pass on to their clients, beating many of their competitors.
  • Military POV shippingWe have been shipping vehicles for the military for over 20 years. We are capable of shipping cars to or from any military base in the world. As gratitude for their immense sacrifice, we offer the military personnel discounts and price-cuts. These are applicable to the various arms of the military whether actively serving or retired.

Types of vehicles we ship

Some of the types of cars we ship include:

  • Salvaged cars. Shipping a salvaged car is different from shipping a fully functional one. Specialized equipment is required to load and unload the vehicle onto carriers. Some of the shipping companies do not have this equipment and therefore, might delay your shipment while sourcing for them. A-1 Auto Transport is well-equipped to handle any type of order.
  • Many Americans are embracing SUVs for their versatility. We can transport the different sized SUVs to any location in the world including Columbiana.
  • We are one of the leading truck shipping companies in the whole of America. We are certified and insured to transport trucks to all the 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska.
  • Exotic vehicles and motorcycles. Occasionally, we get a shipment of high-end vehicles that require extra care and attention. We have received a shipment of Lamborghinis and Harley Davidson motorcycles to ship across the country. Although they pose a different challenge compared to other vehicles, we overcame the obstacles and successfully delivered them to their owners.

The process of shipping your vehicle

At A-1 Auto Transport, we do things differently as compared to other companies. We like preparing our customers for the whole process of shipping their vehicles in order to avoid any unrealistic expectations that could lead to misunderstandings. We advise you on how to prepare your vehicle for shipping and what the process of shipping your vehicle entails. Here are some of the steps in the shipping process:

  • Adequately plan your move ahead of time.
  • Remove any personal items and aftermarket installations to avoid damage or theft.
  • Clean your vehicle.
  • Disable your alarm system
  • Have our car picked up or deliver it to the auto shipper.
  • Sign the bill of lading.
  • The vehicle is then loaded and secured on to the carrier.
  • The car is shipped and delivered to its destination.

How we ship cars

  • Open air auto transport: A simple mode of transport designed to move cars economically as well as safely. Open carriers are available in both flatbed trailers and double level carriers that hold anywhere from one to ten or more vehicles at one time. This is the cheapest way to ship a car via the interstate to Columbiana.
  • Enclosed auto transport: Enclosed carriers hold up to four or more cars or other vehicles including motorcycles or ATV’s and customers can often receive a guaranteed delivery date when shipping with enclosed services.

The Cost of Enclosed Auto Transport

The cost to ship via enclosed service will vary depending on the type of vehicle you are shipping as well as the distance but generally, it will cost more than open air auto transport. There are fewer enclosed carriers on the roads today and since they cannot carry as many vehicles as an open carrier, hose operators will often charge more per vehicle in order to recoup money lost on hauling fewer cars as well as the overall expense of buying the enclosed carrier.

Enclosed carrier service often comes with a guaranteed delivery date, which is not usually available with open air auto transport due to the number of vehicles being loaded and unloaded from the carrier.

Other Options

We also offer shipment by train or air, but there are considerations to be made about these options. Railway shipping is often economical, but since manufacturers and dealerships often use trains to ship, it is not always possible to find space on the train for shipment. You can however find both open and enclosed service by train, but you should book at least 30 days in advance.

Air shipping is a very expensive form of freight shipping and is usually only used for very expensive or rare vehicles. You will want to compare rates before booking a plane for shipping your car.

Why ship with us?

We are probably the only company that cares about your vehicle as much as you do. We are also one of the only companies that offer full value replacement insurance and satellite tracking on all our orders.
