Reliable and On-Time Expedited Freight Shipping With A-1 Auto Transport

Here at A-1 Auto Transport, we are committed to making sure your shipment reaches its final destination as quickly as possible. If you have an especially urgent shipment, our expedited freight shipping services can get your vehicle to where it needs to be within as little as 24 hours. 

Are you planning a last-minute road trip on the other side of the country? Having an emergency and need your vehicle by the morning? No matter what unexpected situation comes up, we are equipped to get your shipment to its final destination within hours.

About Expedited Shipping: How Does It Work?

Expedited shipping aims to cut down the time it takes to get your vehicle from one place to another. In most cases, this means minimizing the number of transportation methods and reducing the number of stops along the way. 

It’s likely that your car will be shipped without any other vehicles, as consolidated shipping can slow down the process. By streamlining the shipment process, you can rest assured that your vehicle will arrive as quickly as it possibly can.

Your car will either be shipped using open-air or enclosed transport. You will be able to decide which type of transport suits your needs best.

Open-Air Transport

Open-air transport is the cheaper option of the two and consists of an open-air road carrier. However, an open-air carrier may not suit your needs, as these carriers are only available when other vehicles are already heading to the same destination.

Enclosed Transport

For expedited transport, enclosed carriers are far more common. An enclosed carrier can transport one vehicle at a time, meaning you won’t need to wait for other vehicles before beginning the shipment process. 

What to Expect From Our Expedited Freight Services?

We want to make the shipment process as simple and straightforward as possible. Don’t worry about the logistics and the hassle of expedited shipping - sit back and let us do the work. Here’s exactly what to expect when you use our expedited shipment services.

Prepare Your Vehicle For Expedited Shipping

Whether you plan on shipping your vehicle using our expedited services, or you opt to ship in the regular time, you will need to prepare your car for shipment. If you are in a rush, you’ll need to begin the preparation process as soon as possible to ensure your vehicle is ready to be transported safely.

You will need to remove personal items from the car, wash it, leave at least a quarter of a tank of gas, and take stock of your car’s condition. We have a detailed set of preparation instructions that will help you to prepare for the shipment.

Wait For Your Transport Driver

Here at A-1 Auto Transport, we make the shipment process as easy as possible. A transport driver will arrive to collect your vehicle, so you won’t have to worry about taking your car to any drop-off location. Your driver will arrive and inspect your vehicle with you. Once you’ve agreed on existing damages and signed the Bill of Lading, your car will be whisked away on its expedited journey.

Track Your Delivery

We know that time is of the essence, and you’ll be anxiously awaiting the arrival of your vehicle. That’s why we always provide accurate, state-of-the-art satellite tracking for all of our shipments. You will be able to easily track your shipment’s progress from start to finish. No need to worry about your urgent delivery - simply follow your vehicle’s journey from your computer or your phone.

Receive Your Vehicle

The final step will be to receive your vehicle. Make sure there are no dents or scratches with your transport driver. Our professional service means that damage is incredibly rare.

FAQs About Our Expedited Shipping Services

Still have a few questions? Check out these FAQs about expedited shipping:

How Much More Does Expedited Shipping Cost?

Expedited shipping does cost more than regular shipping. This is because your vehicle will often be the only car in the shipment. In non-urgent shipments, your car will be placed with a range of other vehicles heading to the same location.

Expedited delivery requires extra time and work from the people involved, so there are additional service fees. However, it’s hard to say exactly how much more the cost will be. The price of expedited shipping will depend on the make and model of your car, the distance it needs to travel, and the urgency of the shipment.

Why Would I Need Expedited Shipping?

Unsure about whether you really need expedited shipping? There are plenty of reasons for expediting the shipment process.

  • Last-minute change of plans
  • Emergency need for your car
  • Unexpected work relocation
  • Unexpected party invitation
  • Have your car ready for you when you step off the plane

Will My Car Definitely Arrive In 24 Hours?

Of course, we can’t guarantee that every shipment will arrive within 24 hours. Depending on how far your vehicle needs to travel, we always aim to deliver within 24 hours. If your car is traveling across the country, this 24 estimate may not be possible. Our drivers have to follow road regulations, and there are often interstate delays. 

Another possible cause for delay is if your vehicle is being collected from a rural location. Winding dirt roads are not always suitable for our transport vans, so there is a chance that a tow truck will be required, adding time to the delivery. 

How Far Can We Transport A Car Within 24 Hours?

Based on general traffic in the country and our safety regulations, we estimate a distance of around 400 miles per day. If you opt to use air freight, we may be able to speed up the process. Contact one of our experienced professionals today to enquire about air shipping for vehicles.

How Far Can I Ship My Car Using Expedited Shipping?

There is no limit to the distance your car can travel. At A-1 Auto Transport, we offer expedited shipping all over the world. Note that international shipments can take much longer due to customs regulations and other delays.

Will My Vehicle Be Insured During Shipping?

Yes, we offer full insurance for every single shipping. While your vehicle is in our care, you can rest assured that your vehicle is fully covered for any unexpected damages.

How Will My Vehicle Stay Protected During Shipping?

Our professional drivers and transporters have decades of experience. We take every precaution to ensure your vehicle is transported safely and securely. We always follow safety regulations and never cut corners, so you can rest easy knowing your vehicle is in safe hands.
