What is Interstate Auto Transportation?

  • As the name suggests, Interstate Auto Transportation is for moving your car domestically from one state to another. For that reason you will often hear it referred to as State To State auto transportation.
  • When shipping your car(s) you have the option to go with an enclosed or an open carrier. Here’s a breakdown of the pros and cons for each type. Alternatively, you could go forgo those options and go with an autorack. Additionally you have the option of having your vehicle delivered Door To Door or Terminal To Terminal.

Why Choose Interstate Auto Transportation?

Whether an individual, family, or enterprise, Interstate Auto Transportation offers the ability to get your auto from A to B without additional mileage or wear and tear. State to State shipping is ideal for collectors or hobbyist shipping their baby to a show, a family moving from coast to coast, or a business owner looking to ship her fleet. We would not suggest shipping your car State to State if you are able to pack and tow everything you own or don’t mind a few extra miles on your odometer.

Tips When Choosing a State to State Auto Transportation.

While we hope you go with us, we want you to make an educated decision that leaves you stress-free. Here are three tips for ensuring your experience doesn’t turn into a horror story.

  • Communicate

Most horror stories occur because of a lack of communication causes a mismatch in expectations, leading ultimately to a bad experience.

Double check when and where your vehicle(s) is being dropped off -- you don’t want to be waiting for your beauty to be dropped of at your door only to receive a call it’s waiting for you at the port. Additionally, make sure to arm yourself with multiple quotes so not to be overcharged and taken advantage of.

  • Have Everything Documented And In Writing

While you may have done your research on the company’s reputation and the security of each Terminal, always get everything in writing. Having full documentation of both your own papers and theirs ensures against untimely delays or unwarranted seizure. While their word may seem trustworthy, should authorities become involved your word against theirs will not hold up in court.

Having full documentation and written guarantees (“No Scratches/Time Delays/etc or your money back”) means in the unfortunate scenario the company you’ve entrusted does not deliver on its promises you can seek legal recourse.

  • Insure Your Vehicle

If during the course of transportation your carrier hit mid delivery by a freak storm or vandalized by ruffians, having insurance makes all the difference. Maybe your carrier covers these kind of damages (see Communicate and Have Everything Documented And In Writing), maybe they don’t. Having insurance is the safety need you don’t need until you do.

For owners of hotrods, classic cars, collectables, exotic imports, and high-end luxury autos we highly suggest insurance as even if you carrier covers some of the costs, it might not be enough.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
