Using Kent Vehicle Transport Companies
Shipping tips to and from Kent:
- Make sure the company is registered with the US DOT: This is key because it ensures that the company will work within the confines set by the Department of Transportation. Moreover, companies shipping vehicles in the U.S. are required to have this designation.
- Require proof of insurance before signing any contracts: If a company has gotten to the point where they are asking you to sign a contract, but haven’t proven they have insurance, you might want to slow down and reconsider working with said company.
- Remove anything that can fall off of your vehicle during transport and cause damage to the vehicles around it: This is key because chances are, you will be liable if there is something that falls off of your vehicle and damages another. This is something to check into before submitting your vehicle for transport.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Kent
If you’re busy with work and cannot take care of your car’s shipping in person, you can designate a proxy to communicate with us instead. That person will need your permission and a written power of attorney.
We will deal with them and make sure the shipment follows his/her specifications. For luxury and classic cars, we often use enclosed carriers since most owners are worried about their security. Of course, open carriers are very safe as well, but an enclosed truck will also protect the car from anything that may hit it from the outside.

Our customers may receive a discount when they purchase from us for the first time. Seniors and students can obtain one too due to their status. A1 auto transport wishes to make its services accessible to these groups, even if their incomes are slightly smaller than the general population.
For our regular clients, we've created a series of seasonal discounts. You may check their availability through the phone. There's also a chance you'll qualify for a snowbird special. Similarly, people working in the United States military will qualify for a different discount.

A1 auto transport can bring your car over at a good price and with all the standard safety precautions. You can even request further safety measures, such as a higher insurance policy or an enclosed truck. We can also arrange for the vehicle to arrive at the same time as you, so it will be at your disposal during the harder initial period of your stay.
Cheap Transportation Options in Kent
Not everyone has the time to search every web page they can find for an auto transport company with both good prices and credentials. Even after finding one, it might not operate in the area you’re located in.
To avoid wasting time, many appeal to brokers. This can easily become a very expensive bargain, since a broker may arrange for several companies to ship your car partway and add an additional fee on top for their services.
A simpler option is to work with a large auto shipping company like A1 auto transport. We move cars throughout the US and internationally, so your location won’t be a problem. We also provide discounts to new clients, to the elderly, to people transporting multiple cars, and to those who meet other criteria.
