Safe And Reliable Grand Rapids Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Located on the Grand River, about a half an hour east of Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids is home to close to 200,000 people and is situated in Kent County. It is the largest city in the Western portion of the state and is known as the “Furniture City.” This is because five major furniture companies are located here. Additionally, there are a number of economic and tech enterprises in the area, making this city a center for commerce and industry in Michigan.
It is where Gerald Ford, the 38 President, was born and it is the place in which he is buried along with Former First Lady Betty Ford. There are a number of stunning sites along the skyline of Grand Rapids, from the Amway Grand Plaza property to the JW Marriott downtown. This city is tied with Asheville, in North Carolina, for the title of “Beer City,” since there are so many breweries in the area.

Using Grand Rapids Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Grand Rapids car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Get contact information for after-hours reps: If you have an issue with your vehicle after hours or just want info on where your car is at the time, you need to know how to call. Get this information before shipping your vehicle.
- Be on time: Otherwise, you may end up having to drop your car off or pick it up at another depot as a result. You may also be charged extra fees.
- Double-check your address: The last thing you want is for the transport operator to show up at the wrong house with your vehicle in tow. Double, even triple, check the information on your contract so your vehicle is going to the right place.
