The Best Way To Ship High Value Vehicles

Any type of luxury, exotic, classic, or one-of-a-kind vehicle needs to be shipped in a particular way to make certain there is no risk of damage. Auto transport companies take every step possible to make sure that any vehicle they haul is not damaged during shipping, but there are additional services you can request to help safeguard against any possibility of damage. High value cars are shipped in an enclosed carrier almost without exception, and for good reason. Using an enclosed carrier—think of a large box truck that completely covers the vehicle on all sides—is the best way (and industry standard) to ship cars with a higher value. Not only does an enclosed carrier keep your vehicle from being susceptible from things like rain, snow, dust, and wind, but it also provide a level of discretion that is simply not possible when using an open carrier on which all cars are visible. 

Another benefit of using enclosed auto shipping is that the carriers only allow for one, or sometimes two cars to be shipped at once. Fewer cars being carried on the same carrier limits the amount of exposure your vehicle will have to things like fluid leaks from other cars on the same truck. 

The other major component to high value auto shipping is door-to-door transport. There are two reasons door-to-door shipping is so frequently used for luxury and exotic transport. The first is that it’s convenient and owners that ship these types of vehicles tend to appreciate ease of use on their end of the service. The second is that it eliminates a step in the process that the owner would otherwise have to facilitate, which is to say picking up the car from a transport terminal or depot. The car then has to be hauled or driven to its ultimate destination, creating an unnecessary trip and the potential for damage during the process. The further the terminal from where the car is headed, the more the potential risk. Having the vehicle dropped right at your specified location eliminates these potential risks. 

Researching To Find The Right Car Shipper

Finding the right company to move a valuable car is more important than shipping a standard vehicle. Obviously, you’re entrusting a company to ship something that means a lot to you and is worth a lot, so it’s all the more important to make sure you find the right fit. This usually starts with a simple online search using websites like the Better Business Bureau and seeking out reviews from customers who have actually used the service. Other online review sites can be helpful as well, but you should take them with a grain of salt. Unlike other industries, auto transport customers rarely take the time to detail when an experience was great, but if they have a bad experience, they’re far more likely to share their story. Unfortunately, the blame sometimes get misplaced in these instances, but it’s still important to look at these reviews, especially if there is a pattern of similarly bad experiences. For the best information available, including safety ratings, operating authority, and experience in the industry, we highly suggest consulting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is the authority that oversees car shipping companies.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
