Tesla founder and CEO, Elon Musk, is fed up with traffic, especially that which occurs daily in the greater Los Angeles area. To combat this regular annoyance and inconvenience, he has hatched a plan, that although far fetched, is far from “Boring” as the project's title would have you believe. His idea is to actually dig tunnels under LA that would allow drivers to bypass and avoid the traffic that has held daily commuters hostage for far too long. Although the idea is just in the beginning stages, he has composed a team, mostly part-timers and interns, to start working on this visionary concept, and Musk himself is devoting 2-3% of his time working on this new venture.
This concept, although ambitious, is most definitely NOT a pipe-dream, and already equipment bearing the logo, “The Boring Company” has been spotted outside of his SpaceX facility. Less than a week ago at a TED Talks conference, Musk unveiled this newest project with a visually stunning and futuristic video depicting a network of underground tunnels accessed by vehicles via roadside elevators. Only the idea of flying cars consistently portrayed in futuristic movies showing the advancement of travel seems more far fetched than a literal underground highway.
Musk, however, is notorious for coming up with ideas that seem far ahead of our time and making them a reality. With Tesla, he was able to build from the ground up an extremely successful car start-up that went on to compete and surpass Detroit manufacturers. SpaceX, another of Musk's cutting edge company creations, just recently made history by successfully launching a rocket for the second time. This is a viable stepping stone for making space travel more affordable since rockets have previously been scrapped after just one launch.
Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging...
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 17, 2016
The idea for the Boring Company was originally alluded to by Musk himself in an innocuous tweet back in December of 2016 when he found himself stuck in one of an LA's legendary traffic jams. Musk originally tweeted, “Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging...” Even after Musk attempted to clarify that he was indeed serious, most people dismissed the tweet until this most recent TED talks panel, during which he showed the video of what could potentially come to be. This can only serve as an eye opener the next time anyone considers ignoring an idle suggestion by one of the greatest minds of the 21st century. A1 Auto Transport is certainly looking forward to finding more about the future of “the Boring Company” and what improvements and implications it could have regarding the domestic auto transport industry.

Her pastimes include the San Diego Padres, anything and everything Disney related, reading for pleasure, running for fun, family trips to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, and Disneyland, and of course, spending quality time with her two beautiful daughters.
Amanda is uniquely qualified to write on all things auto transport, working in the industry as a sales agent for over 10 years and also shipping cars herself on multiple occasions, all of which allowed her to learn the industry from both sides. Amanda also has a comprehensive knowledge of vehicles due to a budding passion and thirst for knowing all things automotive.
Amanda was born and raised in the small town of Santa Cruz, California, but moved to San Diego at age 17 to pursue a degree in psychology at San Diego State University. She graduated in just 3 short years with a Bachelor's in Psychology with a Minor in Religious Studies, but chose instead to pursue a career in finance, working at multiple financial institutions before discovering her true passion for writing.
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!
