Car Shipping Companies Near Me
Looking for auto transport companies near you in Columbus? Ohio’s Capital city is one that knows how to have a good time. Whether it’s cheering on their beloved Buckeyes or enjoying a cocktail in the Short North, this Midwestern city has a lot to offer. Because of its geographical location, a personal car is almost a necessity to get around Columbus and its neighboring regions. That probably means you’ll need to find an auto transport company. To help you do this, take a look at the A-1 Auto Transport directory and find the right fit to get your car to you in Columbus.
Using Columbus Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Columbus car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Inform your insurance company of your plans to transport your vehicle: This way, if you need to file a claim for any reason, your insurance company is armed with all pertinent information to make it easier to expedite the process.
- Inquire as to whether you will need to pay a deposit: This is important as a deposit means that you will be putting down a certain percentage of your shipping costs. You may need to prepare in advance of doing so, so ask before signing on the dotted line.
- Reduce all fluid levels in the vehicle about a quarter: This not only makes the vehicle lighter for shipping purposes, but it reduces the risk of anything going wrong in terms of leaks during transport. This includes gas, which means you may also need to locate a gas station upon arrival to your destination.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Columbus
Ideally, an auto transport request should be booked several weeks in advance, especially if it’s over long distances. A1 Auto Transport handles both intrastate and interstate transportation in the US, but we need time to plan out each trip. If you’d like us to pick up your car on short notice, we can do that as well, but it will cost you more.
We have both enclosed and open carriers for you to choose from. Our services include terminal to terminal, door to door, door to terminal and vice versa, as well as express deliveries, just to name a few. You may also benefit from our seasonal offerings and special discounts if you meet our criteria.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Columbus
A1 auto transport’s carriers transport both luxury and classic vehicles to and from Columbus. You can choose between enclosed carriers and open ones.
Enclosed carriers have the advantage of protecting the cars they ship from the outside. Rain, snow, flying pebbles, etc. cannot reach the cars while they’re being transported. This service also comes with regular updates and a faster delivery, though it is harder to schedule.
Open carriers are most commonly used in our industry due to their low price and the high number of cars they can carry at any one time. The disadvantage is lower protection against the weather and flying objects, as well as a lower insurance policy.
Special Discounts in Columbus
If you're reconsidering shipping your car due to the large price estimates you've been receiving from other companies, consider calling A1 auto transport before giving up. Besides our reasonably priced services, you can also win one or more special discounts.
At times, we release special offers to celebrate certain events. We also encourage first time shippers with a discount, as well as seniors, military personnel, and students. If you'd like to learn more about these and the several other offers available for our customers, call today.
International Shipping to/from Columbus
The simplest way to take a vehicle overseas is with a ship. You can drive it directly on board or place it in a container with the rest of your belongings. You may also be able to do it with a plane, but at a much higher cost and difficulty.
If you live far away from a port, you can hire A1 auto transport to take your car there. Our company specializes in long distance and international shipments. We can deal with port and customs officials, and even arrange for your car to be picked up at the port in the other country. From there, it will be delivered to your doorstep.
Cheap Transportation Options in Columbus
A1 auto transport delivers not just luxury cars, but vehicles of all models, ages, and prices. If your automobile isn't a status statement but just a way for you to commute faster, you're probably not interested in giving it the most expensive auto transportation. Instead, the cost will likely be a much bigger concern.
You are not alone in this thought, since most auto transport clients ask about the price first and foremost. A1 auto transport can give you an estimate fast through the online form at the top of our website, but if you want a truly accurate assessment, calling us will be better. We need to hear your entire situation to arrange a transport that's best suited for you, and we may not get all the details from the form.
