Car Shipping Tips
Remember these tips from A-1 Auto Transport when you are making plans to have a motor vehicle shipped to or from Friendswood, Texas:
- Search online for auto transport companies.
- Compare services and cost of at least 5 companies.
- Ask friends and family to suggest a company.
- Never accept the first low price you are offered. Remember to compare services.
- Check the FMCSA website to verify that a company is registered with the DOT.
- Check reviews online. Also, check with the BBB to see if a company has unresolved complaints lodged against them.
- Request proof of insurance from companies that you’re interested in.
- If you’re shipping a luxury car or vintage car be sure the company has enclosed transport so the car will be secure.
- If you have an oversized vehicle you need to be prepared to pay a larger price for transport as larger vehicles will not fit on a standard car carrier.

- Make sure you have the correct form of payment for services.
- Some companies require a deposit upfront so be prepared to pay a deposit.
- Contact companies at least two weeks prior to the date you need the car picked up.

- Wash the car.
- Clean the inside of the car and remove all personal items.
