Using El Cajon Vehicle Transport Companies
Prior to shipping a vehicle to El Cajon, remember:
- Clear out the vehicle as well as your can: Since part of the cost of shipping a vehicle depends on the weight, the more you can clear out your personal effects, the lighter it will be. Additionally, the company is not responsible for your personal effects, so keep that in mind prior to shipping.
- Work with a company that is located domestically: Otherwise, you might not enjoy the same consumer protections you would enjoy with a company based here. International companies can be unscrupulous and you would never know it.
- Ask about GPS tracking: If you are truly skittish about the process of shipping your vehicle, the company may have a way for you to track where your vehicle is at all times during the order.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from El Cajon
A1 auto transport’s services range from El Cajon to most other US cities. Distance is not an issue with us, and our carriers handle deliveries in other countries as well.
The reason why many people call brokers when thinking of shipping a car over long distances is because they’re afraid they may not find a direct auto transport company that can help them. If a direct shipper doesn’t have enough carriers, it will likely be constrained to a certain area. If you’re coming from or moving to a place outside its area of operations, the company will not be able to help you.
However, if your budget doesn’t have room for a broker’s fee, you can always use the services of a larger auto shipping company like our own. We take calls regardless of the hour, so you may call whenever you please.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in El Cajon
Auto shipping, from a client’s perspective, is a 3 step process. First of all, you have to call A1 auto transport to arrange the transport. This part may involve one or several phone conversations, depending on how much information you can provide us, the complexity of the project, etc.
Afterwards, on the date we’ve agreed upon, someone from our staff will arrive to pick up your car. If you’re shipping a luxury or a classic model, then we’ll most likely recommend an enclosed trailer. The driver will not only pick up the car, but also inspect it and hand you some documents to sign. Please read them carefully.
Finally, all that’s left is for you to receive your vehicle on the day our truck arrives. There will be a final document to sign before the process is over.
