Using Fairfield Vehicle Transport Companies
- Enclosed & Open Transport - There are two main ways that vehicles are transported in the continental United States: enclosed and open air auto carriers. Enclosed transport keeps the vehicle covered and protected throughout the process and provides more protection and less visibility when shipping-an ideal service for high-value vehicles or classic cars. Open air transport is the more common method and is slightly more affordable. An open carrier usually moves several cars at once allowing the company to save on fuel costs, which can then be passed along to the customer.
- International Car Shipping - Shipping a car overseas or to another country is slightly different from overland auto transport. If you’re shipping a vehicle from the U.S. to Canada or Mexico, standard auto shipping companies can sometimes handle the job. For vehicles that must be shipped by boat, a different process is used called containerized auto shipping. With containerized transport, the car is secured inside of a shipping container and loaded onto a transport boat along with other cargo. One advantage of container auto transport is that you can put other personal items in with the vehicle, making it ideal for customers who are planning a long trip overseas or moving to another country.
- Insurance - Insurance is included as part of the price you are quoted from an auto shipper. By law, every company must carry a minimum level of insurance coverage in case of any damages that may occur during shipping. For most customers, the base level of coverage is fine, but if you’re shipping a high value or exotic vehicle, it’s often a good idea to purchase supplemental insurance to increase the coverage limits. Most companies can either provide the additional insurance themselves or arrange it for the customer.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Fairfield
If you don’t want to pay too much to transport your car over long distances, the carrier’s size is very important. The smaller the truck used to ship an automobile, the more costs each individual client will have to take on. The prices of gas, repairs, accommodation, and the driver’s paycheck are all split between the people transporting their vehicles with that particular truck.
To combat this problem, A1 auto transport uses the largest available carriers on the market, with a huge carrying capacity of up to 12 automobiles. The price our clients pay is only a fraction of the actual cost. It can sometimes be below $500.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Fairfield
When using an enclosed auto truck, you’ll receive updates from us regularly, so you’ll always know where your car is at. This is part of our white glove service, which includes a large insurance policy as well.
Because our enclosed truck will be used for your car alone, the trip will be over much more quickly. There will be little time for thieves or vandals to notice it. Also, since the car will be hidden inside the truck, without prior knowledge of the transport, it will be practically invisible to wrong doers.
Special Discounts in Fairfield
As a large family with multiple cars, you're probably always looking for ways to minimize costs. When moving to another state or city, this is particularly difficult. If you don't want to sell your beloved cars, we can help with moving them while keeping the costs as low as possible.
We do this through our open carriers and terminal to terminal services, but we also supplement these options with several valuable discounts. We release senior discounts for elderly citizens. We have student programs and military specials you should heavily consider if you're part of these groups.
Combined with our seasonal and first timer deals, there are plenty of ways to lower your auto shipping price. Speak to our main office's staff for more information.
International Shipping to/from Fairfield
A1 auto transport can complete your move with the transport of your family vehicle. We can ship it to the other side of the country or even to another country if your new home is abroad. Our staff is equipped to handle all challenges. In situations where the car cannot be driven or the owner wants us to give it special attention, we have the right equipment for the job.
To ensure the shipment is up to standard, we offer various options besides the standard service. We can transport your automobile with an enclosed carrier, so you'll receive it faster and it won't be affected by the weather. We can also help you lower the costs with a cheaper open truck. Booking ships or even trains are also options, though they may bring additional challenges.
Cheap Transportation Options in Fairfield
With the help of auto transport services, you can ship your car without wasting weeks of your time driving it around the country. However, this time you’re saving doesn’t have to come at the expense of your savings. Auto transportation can be just as cheap as a shipment you handle yourself if you do it right.
First of all, it’s best to avoid the more costly services. Just like any service, there are transport options that can be helpful in certain situation, but they’re also much more expensive.
For example, it’s a good idea to use an enclosed carrier if you’re transporting a classic or a luxury vehicle, one meant to be put on display. However, the financial investment isn’t necessary in most other cases. For normal cars meant to be used for your commute, a simple open carrier will suffice.
