Exotic Car Transport Services

Welcome to A-1 Auto Transport, the premier exotic car shipping service in the U.S.! We have more than 25 years of experience delivering high-end, luxury, and expensive cars to every corner of the world. 

We take the utmost care to ensure that your vehicle gets where it needs to go in a timely, safe, and cost-effective manner. Whether you’re buying, selling, or just traveling, we’ll get your car to its destination on time and in perfect condition.

If you are going on an extended vacation or moving across the ocean, chances are that you will want to bring your car along with you. With an exotic car, you must keep in mind that the ground clearance is often lower than with standard cars and trucks. 

This factor determines how you ship the car and what car carrier you will use to ship across town or across the world. You need a licensed and bonded shipping company that understands these cars and specializes in safely relocating these beautiful automobiles nationwide and overseas.

Shipping a car is not a terribly complicated task, but there are precautions that you need to take when transporting a valuable vehicle. While standard shipment on an open-air carrier is a perfectly acceptable method for most vehicles, these cars require a little more expertise and care. Here are some of the popular luxury car brands that we ship to locations around the world and what you can expect to pay for shipping.

Los Angeles to New York$2200
Seattle to San Antonio$2000
Houston to Miami$1000
Miami to New York$1140
San Francisco to Los Angeles$425

Exotic Car Shipping Services

Should I Ship My Exotic Car?

The answer greatly depends on your personal situation. If you are moving across the country or even internationally, we recommend shipping your vehicle. Moving across continents calls for shipping.

If you are a lucky owner of an exotic vehicle, you probably want to cherish it no matter where you travel. However, not all vehicles are street-legal in all countries. Make sure that yours meets the legal requirements for driving in your destination country before shipping it.

Do Exotic Cars Cost More to Ship?

Yes, exotic vehicles require safer methods of shipping than standard cars. Enclosed carrier transit and added insurance cost more but are well worth it.

They give you the peace of mind that your exotic vehicle will undergo safe shipping, and, in the rare but possible event that your vehicle takes damage, additional insurance will cover the repairs.

Pricing Concerns

As with any type of service, getting a great price is one of your primary concerns when shipping a vehicle. You should be cautious about automatically accepting the lowest offer you receive though. An unusually low cost can be indicative of less-than-stellar service, leading to a damaged vehicle upon delivery.

It’s always smart to explore pricing and service options but be wary of the dreaded “lowball quote.” If a company offers a price that drastically undercuts all other competitors, there’s usually something suspicious about the arrangement. Our pricing is highly competitive while still coinciding with excellent service quality.

  • Military discounts
  • Senior citizen discounts
  • Student discounts
  • Repeat customer discounts
  • AAA
  • AARP

Be sure to check with one of our agents to see if you qualify for one of our discounts.

Is the Process of Shipping Exotic Cars the Same as Regular Cars?

The general process for shipping cars is the same; however, we take extra care and precaution with exotic vehicles. 

Enclosed carrier transport trucks prevent your vehicle from being exposed to the elements. Having your car shipped this way has the added benefit of additional security. Since no one will know the value of your vehicle, the chances of theft are much lower.

We also recommend added insurance for your vehicle. Parts and repairs for such automobiles are much more expensive than for average cars. In the unfortunate case of an accident, we offer additional insurance to cover any potential damage.

Enclosed Carriers

We highly recommend using an enclosed carrier when shipping. Because of the high value of these vehicles, the vast majority of our customers opt for this extra level of protection. In addition to keeping the vehicle protected from bad weather and road debris, an enclosed carrier can also offer climate-controlled cargo areas. We outfit all our carriers with air-ride suspension and even provide real-time GPS updates on the status of your delivery. Choose door-to-door transport options if you desire, which are available worldwide.

Is It Safe to Ship My Exotic Car?

Yes, shipping your exotic vehicle is incredibly safe if you choose the right shipping company for the job. It is important to select a fully-insured service that has safe and reliable shipping methods and is well regarded in the industry.

You should afford your vehicle the same respect and care that you would your most valued possessions. Any additional fees are worth the peace of mind knowing your irreplaceable vehicle will arrive to its destination safely.

International Shipping

We have many clients with business ventures overseas work with many of the nation’s leading home movers to ensure a smooth relocation for our overseas travelers. Whether your automobile is going to be on a freight ship in transit for days or weeks, we keep up with the location of the car at all times.

For our customers who are shipping overseas for the first time and may feel unsure of how to do so, we offer assistance to detail what you need to do for the whole process, including gathering necessary paperwork and possible modifications. These steps ensure you can legally import the car to your desired nation.

Door to Door Service

We are A-1 Auto Transport. We take pride in working with the automobile owner to schedule simple door-to-door service in all 50 states as well as many countries overseas. The driver will meet the customer at the address of their choice to pick the car up and deliver it safely to dealerships as well as businesses or residential homes.

We make auto transport easy for you, the vehicle owner. Since there may be road restrictions at certain addresses, our team will be communicative with you if the driver is not able to meet at a precise address. We will arrange to pick the car up or deliver it to a nearby location.

Car Storage

When you own an exotic car, you know how important it is to maintain a stable environment for it, whether the car is sitting in your personal garage is in a new location halfway around the world. In some situations, you may need short-term storage when you are shipping your car to a new area.

Schedule this type of storage ahead of time. When you need to have short-term storage, we can provide a facility for the car until you pick it up for delivery. Storage facilities are available in many major metro cities nationwide, and we are happy to assist with locating dependable storage options if available when you relocate internationally.


Insurance is necessary, especially if you’re shipping a particularly high-value car. In most cases, the insurance included in the cost of shipping is not enough.

The law requires that auto carriers have valid insurance coverage for damages. However, the built-in coverage limits may not offer enough protection for rare and exotic cars. For this reason, we offer gap coverage, which complements the standard insurance by offering more comprehensive coverage based on the value of your car. Insurance is always included in every quote we offer for shipping.

What Should I Do to Prepare My Car For Shipping?

While we take care of most things for you, here’s a rundown of how you can prepare your vehicle for shipping with us:

  • Inspect your car. Inspect the interior and exterior of your vehicle for any existing damage. Take note of dents, scratches, or imperfections. Knowing the exact condition of your vehicle will make it easier to determine if your vehicle took damage during transport.
  • Remove all your personal items. Your vehicle will likely move around in transit, so remove anything that may damage the interior, such as GPS devices, toll devices, and any other electronic attachments.
  • Clean your vehicle and perform any required maintenance. With a high-value exotic car, it’s worth contacting a mechanic before shipping.
  • Perform a basic maintenance checklist. Make sure all your vehicle’s fluids are in working condition. Check your oil, brake, engine coolant, steering, and washer fluids. Your gas tank should be a quarter or eighth full. Also, look for a fully-charged battery and adequate tire pressure.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
