Expedited Popular Vehicle Shipping Options

When time is of the essence, you may find yourself in need of the fastest way to ship a car; a service known as expedited auto transport. While there are legal and logistical limits on how fast a vehicle can be transported, you still have a few options available to you when you need a vehicle delivered as soon as possible. In this article, we’ll review the methods for expedited transport, as well as the potential costs and services involved in the process.

  • Open Air Transport
  • Enclosed or Crated Shipping
  • Expedited Delivery
  • Guaranteed Delivery
  • Vehicle Tracking
  • Insurance Coverage
  • Door to Door Pickup and Drop Off
  • Terminal to Terminal Delivery and Pickup

The absolute fastest way to ship a vehicle is through air freight, meaning the vehicle is transported by plane. It is not a frequently used method of shipping due to the extreme cost, there are some circumstances in which it may make sense. This is most often the case when expedited transport is needed and the vehicle being shipped is a high-end, luxury, or exotic vehicle, in which case the cost of shipping is cheaper relative to the value of the vehicle.

The quickest method of shipping for overland transport is enclosed shipping. There are a couple of reasons that an enclosed carrier is the preferred method for expedited shipping. The first is that fewer vehicles—sometimes just one—are moved at the same time with an enclosed carrier, allowing for a more direct delivery route and thus, faster shipment times. The second reason is that an enclosed carrier is smaller than an open carrier and can cover more miles in the same amount of time.

Using enclosed car shipping services also allows for another benefit to customers in need of same-day and expedited transport: door-to-door delivery is made much easier with a smaller truck. In almost every case in which we’re enlisted for expedited shipping, the customer wants the vehicle picked up and delivered directly without the need to retrieve it from a transport terminal. Door-to-door transport is also faster than traditional shipping to a terminal, which requires the additional step of picking up your vehicle at the nearest available terminal.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

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!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
