Location & Shipping Port

The most important factor that should be taken care of is knowing the precise location of where your vehicle is in Australia. This includes the location of the warehouse or car manufacturing industries in Australia. Knowing the precise location of your car makes it easier to plan the on-road transport to the major ports in Australia for the car to be shipped. This is of course, in the case where the car manufacturing company does not provide hauling services to the ports.

This step is crucial as our personnel in Australian ports need to create a work schedule. Imported vehicles are shipped in enclosed freight containers. Each vehicle needs to be allocated its own freight space. Cargo vessels operate under schedules which our personnel need to synchronize with the specific port authorities.

This step also involves factoring in the location in the United States to which the car will be shipped to. This will determine which U.S. port is more convenient to ship your vehicle to from Australia. The closest one to the pickup terminal or precise location is the most conducive.

Cost Calculator

Once the location of the vehicle and shipping port is known, then the next step is the cost estimation. We offer precise figures of how much it will cost to import vehicle into USA from Australia. We have a comprehensive post of how much it would cost to ship a vehicle from overseas. This is dictated of course by the size and weight of the car, the year of manufacture, the vehicle model, the car’s condition and the total distance covered. It is not possible to generalize, but in most cases, larger heavier vehicles are more costly to transport. This is because they require larger freight space in the cargo containers, measured I square feet. Shipping a normal sized vehicle from Australia into the US will cost you approximately $2,950.

The total transportation distance will, of course, include the starting location until the shipping terminal, the voyage distance and the delivery from the arrival port to the pickup terminal for terminal – terminal delivery or the residence for door – door delivery services.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

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.

You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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 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!
