Elizabeth lies on the rich plains of Colorado. It has deep agricultural roots but with a clear and fast developing suburban future. Elizabeth is known for its small town living, where residents enjoy the perks of living in close knit communities with low cost of living. The agricultural town serves as the main supplier of vegetables and animal products in Elbert County. Every year, a farmer’s market is set up from June through August, which draws folks from the neighboring towns, including the city of Denver. However, Elizabeth does not have a reliable public transport system and you will need your private car when touring the region. This is where A-1 Auto Transport comes in. We have the capacity to ship different types of cars at competitive prices, which makes us the most recommended firm for shipping cars to or from Elizabeth.

Areas we cover within Elizabeth
We are a carrier firm that is licensed and registered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Carrier firms operate by interacting directly with clients from the field, unlike brokerage firms which just purchase the car shipping order from you and resell it to firms like us. Years of serving clients from their homes, business premises, farms and terminals has seen us get familiar with the profile of Elizabeth. We know the region better than any other carrier firm, as we guarantee deliveries across every location when shipping cars to or from Elizabeth.
Auto transport services we provide
- Open carrier services: Open carriers are long hauls with flatbed racks for carrying cars. The flatbed racks could be single or double decked, which allows them to accommodate multiple cars. No structure envelops the cars, thus the name ‘open air’ shipping. The cars are however, safe from getting damaged as our drivers avoid roads with low hanging tree branches that may dent or scrape the car. Open carriers are a better choice as they allow the driver to make random checks on the car(s) without opening up an intermodal container. They are also multipurpose, as they have the capacity to accommodate extra-large autos like RVs, tractors and buses.
- Enclosed carrier services: An intermodal container houses the car as it is being hauled by this type of carrier. The container provides extra protection against external elements such as small rocks from the road and adverse weather conditions like hail. The extra protection comes at a higher price than that of hiring an open carrier. Enclosed carriers also limit the number and size of autos they can accommodate, which at times may limit the client’s choice of a carrier. They are however, the best for shipping high-end cars as they provide privacy against prying eyes.
Types of cars we ship
A-1 Auto Transport ships sedans, trucks, vans, SUVs, motorhomes, motorcycles, RVs, ATVs, high-end cars, heavy equipment, salvaged cars and inoperable vehicles.
How to prepare your car for shipping
- Wash the car: Make arrangements to have the car washed before the day of shipping. This improves the visibility of any pre-existing damage such as dents, scratches, scrapes and dings. Such damage will have to be recorded in a car hauler’s inspection report, which aids the driver in spotting any fresh damage after the car is delivered.
- Mind the gas: The price of shipping any car depends on its weight among other factors. This is why it is ill-advised to ship your car with a full tank of gas, as the car weighs more, which in turn attracts a heftier shipping price. Instead, leave a quarter-full tank of gas which is enough to cover the loading and offloading movements.
- Remove all personal items: The Department of Transportation mandates that no goods that are deemed ‘of household nature’ shall be left inside a car being shipped. These include shopping items, appliances, accessories, electronics and clothes. Also ensure you remove any aftermarket installations such as DVD players, external speakers and GPS navigation systems to save them from loss or damage.
- Perform a car maintenance check: This involves fixing any leaks, filling all car fluids to their recommended levels and properly inflating all tires. This is done to minimize the possibility of the car developing mechanical issues during shipping.
