Safe And Reliable Iowa Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

Known as America’s Heartland, Iowa is much more than the rows of corn and other agriculture for which it is known. Financial services, manufacturing, and a burgeoning biotech industry are all becoming just as prominent as the agriculture for which the state is known. Auto transportation is key here since public transportation doesn’t often extend from town to town, which depending on which part of the state you are in, can be quite a distance.

Reviews from Customers in Iowa

  • 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.

  • EXCELLENT! This is the third time, and it still feels like I am a new customer. The reservation and shipment processes are simple and quick.  I was in a hurry the last time I called A1, so they asked me for the best time to call back. I was not expecting they’ll go an extra mile by calling me even after working hours as I requested. They surely find ways to make you feel valued.

    A1 Auto Transport took care of every single detail of my shipment to Iowa. I do not recall any misses. I am wondering how they train their employees. This company earned two thumbs up!!
