Reasons To Ship a Car
When the thought of relocating a car to a new location arises, the first option you would naturally think about is driving the car yourself. After all, a car is purposely made to be driven. However, in some situations shipping a car is the only convenient option. Some of these situations include:
When The Destination Is Too Far
If Kirby is over 500 miles away from your location, shipping is more convenient than driving. Unless you are a long-distance driving enthusiast, spending more than two days of your precious time on the road does not make sense.
Without considering other underlying factors, an average driver takes three to five days to cover 500 miles. Besides tiredness, long-distance driving exposes you to road hazards like rogue drivers, harsh weather conditions and jams.
If your schedule is too tight, you have no choice but to hire a car transport company to move your vehicle. You only have to spare time to book a shipping slot and drop off your car for transportation by shipping your car.
When the car you are looking to move is not in operational condition, you have no choice but to ship it. It could be a car that holds many memories in your life, and you cannot afford to leave it behind. Alternatively, you could be looking to repair it in your new destination. Auto transport companies have the right equipment to use during the loading and unloading of an inoperable car.
Moving Multiple Cars
Like most households in the US, you could be owning more than two cars and looking to move both at once. You could also be a car dealer looking to relocate multiple vehicles you purchased online. For such situations, hiring an auto shipping company to move your cars is your only reasonable option. An open carrier can carry up to ten vehicles, while an enclosed carrier can move six vehicles. We at A-1 Auto Transport offer discounts to customers shipping multiple cars.
Need to Minimize Wear and Tear/Mileage
Long-distance driving subjects a car to wear and tear. At the end of the journey, you will have to change your car's fluids, brake pads and tires. But with a car transport company, your vehicle is loaded into a carrier truck and transported to the destination. A carrier truck is fitted with shock absorbers to protect your car throughout the journey.
Apart from the wear and tear, long-distance driving leads to a significant mileage increase. An increase in mileage reduces the market value of your car. When you hire an auto transport company, your car is driven only during loading and unloading.
How Car Shipping Works
The shipping procedure, especially for first-timers, is a complicated process. To avoid petty mistakes at any stage of the shipping process, you ought to fully understand how the process works. Here are steps you can use to choose the right car transport company to move your car to Kirby:
Step 1 - Research and Explore
You have to make sure the company you choose has the right credentials to offer safe transportation for your vehicle. Luckily, most information you need about car transport companies is online. The only challenge is that it's difficult to separate reputable car transport companies from untrustworthy ones. Here is a list of factors to consider when choosing a car transport company.
License/registration status: The first thing to check is whether a car transport company has all the licenses to offer auto transport services. A legitimate auto transport company must have a USDOT number. Check the validity of a company's USDOT number with the FMCSA.
Reputation: What people think about the company speaks a lot about their services' quality. Read through the customer reviews and the rating of the shipping company on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website.
Website outlook: A reputable auto transport company has a well-designed website with all the required features clearly displayed. You can also check the website for any inconsistencies or spelling mistakes. A sign of a disreputable company is a website with inconsistencies and spelling mistakes.
Shipping rates: Quality of services should coincide with reasonable rates. Request quotes from as many companies as possible to get the average shipping cost. You should not hire a company whose rates are much higher than this or too low.
Step 2 - Pick A Company
After comprehensive research, you should have one or two potential companies. Before settling on one, call the shipping companies and ask them any questions you have concerning their services. If you are satisfied with your conversation with a company's representative, you can deposit the payment to book a slot.
Step 3 - Prepare Your Car for Shipping
Once a shipping date has been set, you can prepare your car for shipping. If your vehicle is operable, it's important to service it before shipping. Remember, mechanical problems during shipping could cause unprecedented delays. Some transporters also reject cars with aggressive underground leakages.
Other factors of concern when servicing your car include:
- Battery condition
- Disable the alarm
- Tire condition (spare tire)
- Fluid levels (engine oil, washer, gearbox oil)

Do Car Transport Companies Ship Inoperable Cars?
Yes. Most car transport companies have adequate equipment to ship operable and inoperable cars. Inoperable cars require sophisticated equipment to help during loading and unloading.
How many cars can I ship?
An open carrier truck can ship up to twelve cars, while enclosed carriers can ship up to eight vehicles depending on their sizes. Thus you can ship any number of cars you want. A-1 auto transport gives discounts to customers shipping more than one car.
How Do I Check the Validity of The USDOT Number?
All registered car transport companies must have a USDOT number. You can check the validity of this number at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website.
Why Is It Important to Service a Car Before Shipping?
During shipping, your car will remain off for days or even a week, and if it's not in good condition, it could have a problem. This could cause delays, leading to the shipping company charging you more.
Does Shipping Affect the Condition of My Car?
Your car is loaded into a carrier truck and transported to the required destination. Carrier trucks are specially designed to absorb all the pressure your car will be subjected to if driven.
