Using Columbus Vehicle Transport Companies

Prior to your auto transport to Columbus:

  • Prep your car properly: Clear out all personal effects, remove items that can easily be damaged or fall off the vehicle during transport and do everything you can well in advance to prep your vehicle prior to turning it over to the transport company.
  • Ask about the experience of your driver: Whether you are getting personalized transport or having your car moved on a tractor-trailer, you still need to know a little bit about the person moving it. This is a pertinent question to ask in advance of transport.
  • Research all available depots to which to ship: This not only tells you how close to your end destination your chosen company can get your vehicle, but it is also an indicator of the reach that your company of choice has around the country. The bigger the reach, the more competitive the rates.

In the worst case scenario, they’ll have to detain your car. It will be held in storage until you can provide the needed paperwork, and you will pay for that storage. This is why it’s key you get things right the first time. A1 auto transport will make sure this is the case. If you’re interested in our services, call now.

Cheap Transportation Options in Columbus

It can be difficult to find good auto shipping services today, especially when constrained by your wallet. Fortunately, there are still plenty of options if you take the time too search for them.

There are many companies of all sizes who keep their rates reasonable. Even those with many luxury vehicle owners as clients will still leave some shipping options for normal citizen.

This is because regardless of how much one may earn through high end customers, normal clients will always be the meat and butter of our business. They're the ones we rely on, so our services are first and foremost geared towards them.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Columbus

Moving vehicles over long distances requires great emphasis on safety. In case of an accident, a sharp turn, or a bird flying too low, your car must be safe.

To prevent outside objects or animals from smashing into it, our carriers surround the cargo with beams, bars, and other vehicles. Only a small portion of each car is exposed, and the carrier will take on most of the pressure.

If you're going abroad and need a ship to get past oceans, then a container will be safer. Although the RoRo method is viable as well, there is a chance of other cars hitting yours due to the ship's movements.

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!
