Moving involves a lot of preparations and details that need to be attended to. Shipping a luxury vehicle may be somewhat daunting since it involves a lot of paperwork. It is also important to ensure that the vehicle will be secure and protected from any harm during the long distance move. When you hire the moving services of experienced and reputable companies such as A1 Auto Transport, you are assured that your luxury vehicle will be shipped safely and arrive at the destination in good condition.
When shipping a luxury vehicle, there is some preparation that needs to be done which includes:
Conduct a general maintenance check. In case you will use container shipping, drain the fuel and disconnect the batteries. You should also retract the radio aerial and check the tire pressure. It is also good to disable the alarm in case you are using roll-on, roll-off shipping.
Go ahead and wash your car so that its condition may be assessed; any scratch or marks clearly seen. It is good to take pictures of the vehicle should you need to provide evidence of the condition of your car before it was shipped. Then remove all personal belongings from the car and cover it with a protective material that will protect it against the elements of weather. Convertibles, especially, need to be well-covered. After you are done, hand-over the car keys to the mover and inform them how your car operates.

Luxury vehicles are not your ordinary staple. They are pricey investments hence extra care is needed to ensure that their condition is maintained through-out the shipping process. There are many elements that the cars may be exposed to while being shipped. Dust, dirt, debris, extremely low or high temperatures and moisture may cause damage to the car. Therefore, it is best to ship them using enclosed transport. This offers the car with the much needed safety.
Antique and classic cars should also not be stacked because oil may spill from the cars from the top deck to the cars onto the lower deck, resulting into damage.
To experience peace of mind that your luxury vehicle will be transported safely, ship it using enclosed transport. While this may not be the most pocket-friendly method of transport, it is the best option. Enclosed transport will give you value for your money because your car is that much more protected, you are not likely to have it damaged.
While you may entrust the moving company to ship your luxury vehicle safely and reliably, you will still need to take action to ensure that their transportation will be hassle-free. Take the necessary measures to ensure that your luxury vehicle has been protected from damage and that the process will be free from hitches. Long distance movers may provide insurance for the car but it is good to research on whether they have limited liability so that you may seek additional insurance.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.
And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.
The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.
When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.
The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.
They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?
So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!
If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.
I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!
The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!
There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.
After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.
Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.
By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.
We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
