Using Des Plaines Vehicle Transport Companies

  • Online Presence - The internet is one of the first places most people will look when they need a service or product and auto transport is no different. It’s a great place to look if you need a price quote, but it can be difficult to find much information beyond an “about us” page and a list of services on most websites. More established companies will have a website that explains the process clearly and addresses some of the questions or concerns you may have about shipping your car. To get an idea of what we mean, visit our auto transport guide, where a wealth of topics are covered, as well as information about home moving. To be fair, not all companies have the time or staff to maintain an up-to-date website, but it’s usually the sign of an established company that ships to many locations on a regular basis.
  • How To Compare Prices - For customers who may have never shipped a vehicle before, this is simple explanation of how to shop for quotes. The first step is to find three to five experienced companies and get a price estimate from each of them, ideally at least a couple weeks from your desired pick up date. Based on the prices and delivery dates you receive, you can pick the one that works best for you. While it’s always good to get a deal, watch out for suspiciously low cost estimates-there’s usually a catch, or worse. Getting an estimate from more than one company allows you to determine the price range and avoid the pitfalls that come with these “lowball” quotes. Before you make a final decision, call the company to verify information, ask questions, and make sure you feel comfortable with their customer service. No money should exchange hands before you’ve received a contract.
  • Take Photos - Before you car is picked up and loaded onto a transport carrier, you should take photographs to document its condition, good or bad. This tip isn’t a requirement so much as a suggestion, but it’s a good practice that can potentially save you some trouble in the long run. For expensive, luxury or exotic cars, photos can be helpful even if the car is perfect condition-if a company moves your car, it should arrive in the same condition it left in and you’ll be able to tell if that’s the case easily. For cars that have some dents, scratches or other damage, it’s still helpful to take pictures in case any other damage occurs during shipping. It should be noted that damage to vehicles during transport is rare and any shipper registered with the FMCSA carries insurance that covers such incidents.

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!
