As with any service, door to door vehicle transportation offers several choices. One option is a multi-car transport truck, which is ideal for basic vehicle transport. These trucks were designed specifically for auto transport, with the majority of vehicles easily fitting safely and securely onto the truck.
A second option is to use a flatbed truck, a good choice when moving more than one vehicle or a smaller vehicle. The flatbed option is ideal for moving a car and another small vehicle, such as a dirt bike or motorcycle.
Our enclosed transport trucks offer a more secure vehicle transport option with an added layer of protection. Designed with higher end, luxury or classic cars in mind, enclosed transport is a great option if you have concerns about weather, road debris or other potential damage caused to your vehicle during delivery. This is a particularly good option if you are buying or selling a vehicle as it offers the most protection and safety during transport.
Whether using terminal to terminal or door to door transport, there are a few simple steps that you should take to prepare your vehicle for shipping.
It is important to remember that these services requires a wide enough street for our auto carriers to maneuver. Obstacles can include overhanging tree branches or driveways in which it is difficult to navigate a large truck. In circumstances such as these, our driver will contact you and arrange for pick up at the nearest convenient location.

Door-to-door transport means that the transporter will get as close as possible to your most desired locations for pickup and delivery. People usually think that this means door-to-door from your residence, office, or any place they choose, and it could. However, sometimes this thought isn't realistic for a few reasons:
Door-to-door auto transport will cost more than terminal-to-terminal, but it still may be worth it to you. First, check into different auto carriers to see which ones will best meet your needs.
There are two methods used for door-to-door auto transport:
Yes. However, taking a vehicle into another country can be more complicated than crossing state lines in the U.S.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing an international door-to-door auto transport company:
Here are some steps you can take to prepare your vehicle for transport:
The cost of transporting your door-to-door depends on a few factors:
Be sure to speak with your transport company or broker to get the lowest cost option.
Transit times can vary depending on the origin and delivery locations, deliveries along the way, severe weather, and road conditions. In addition, the law limits drivers to a specific number of miles and hours per day that they can drive.
Auto transit companies have operators standing by and ready to speak with you about your door-to-door transfer before and during transport. Most also have online help if you're comfortable working with a computer.
Before a company picks up your vehicle, you'll have a phone number to call and an order or quote # to give for reference. In addition, a contract # will be provided should you have any questions or concerns during transit.
Being allowed to leave personal items in your vehicle during transport depends on the transport company you choose and the state in which they do business.
Do not assume you can include belongings or boxes in your vehicle when transporting it.
There are a few things to consider if you're thinking of transporting belongings in your vehicle:
Speaking with a representative from the transport company you've chosen will help you navigate the "dos and don'ts" of transporting your vehicle(s) with personal belongings inside.
By law, all auto transport companies must provide complete protection insurance. However, even with this law, some auto transport companies may have a waiver in their contract exempting them from responsibility for damage that may occur while they have your vehicle. Because of this, it is vital that you know certain things before transporting your vehicle door-to-door:
No matter what, ensure your auto is adequately insured for door-to-door transport using the insurance necessary either through the transport company or your insurance company.
A vehicle is considered non-operative when it can't be operated for any reason. A non-operative auto can be a problem for shipping because carriers move most cars onto a carrier by driving, wheeling, or towing.
When considering a door-to-door transport company, here are factors to think about:
Speak with your auto transport company or broker to help you think through the best way to transport your inoperable vehicle to its desired destination.
Yes, you can count on it costing more to transport a truck and SUV door-to-door than a regular vehicle such as a sedan.
Usually, to transport your vehicle door-to-door (or any way), most auto transport companies require that you provide certain documents before they transport your car. These documents include a copy of insurance, your vehicle registration as proof that the vehicle is yours, and documentation from any lienholder that you can transport the car.
Ideally, you inspected your car upon delivery and noticed the damage. Damage can be new knicks, scratches, dents, etc. If you see any damage, tell the driver about it immediately so you can file a claim.
If you don't tell the driver about it upon delivery, you can still file a claim, but you must do so within 30 days. Follow these crucial suggestions when inspecting your car at delivery and seeing damage:

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.
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!
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 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!
