Using Elgin Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Elgin car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Ship luxury cars in enclosed transport: After all, you’ve likely paid a pretty penny for your vehicle, so you want the maximum protection when you ship it. It might cost more, but it’s well worth the extra cost for your peace of mind.
- Be prepared to pay more for a large vehicle: Since part of the cost of shipping is dependent on the weight of the vehicle, you may end up paying more for a vehicle that weighs more.
- Confirm your address with the delivery driver: The last thing you want is for your vehicle to be delivered to the wrong address when it is time to receive it from the transport company.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Elgin
The budget can be one of the main concerns of a client when requesting transportation for an automobile, especially if the distance is long. In such cases, we recommend using our standard options.
These include an open carrier, which takes slightly longer to travel but is also easier to book. You can save more money by driving the car to a terminal from which we’ll pick it up. Receiving it at a terminal will also lower your bill.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Elgin
Whenever a car is on the road, it risks damage. Driving it wears down the parts which leads to structural damage in time. Exposing it to road and weather elements can lead to scratches, bumps, flat tires, or even accidents.
During transport, you can avoid having your luxury or classic car go through this situation by using a carrier. Open ones will keep it immobile and prevent structural damage from accumulating. Enclosed trucks go a step further and stop outside objects from reaching the car as well. The choice is up to you. If you’d like to learn more about your options, call today.
Special Discounts in Elgin
Like other shipping companies, A1 auto transport has its own list of discounts and specials. However, few of our competitors can match the number and quality of our offers.
This is why around 50% of our clients will receive a discount when working with us. If you’re willing to wait for a seasonal special when shipping, you can easily increase your odds to 100%.
Speaking of always getting a discount, all our senior, student, and military customers are eligible for a special offer. Whenever a new citizen opts for our services, he/she will receive a first timer discount too.

International Shipping to/from Elgin
Are you looking for cheap transportation for your vehicle? The price is a common concern for those trying to move objects as large as cars overseas. The size and weight of the vehicle makes even short distance movements expensive, let alone international ones.

Another way to keep your expenses within a reasonable budget is to pick the cheaper transportation offers available. Our staff will present several options from which you can choose. If you don’t mind the trip taking a bit longer, then pick the cheaper ones.
