Transport services offered in Kwethluk
We have several domestic options to help move your car from one end to the other.
- Enclosed transport uses a fully covered truck to shield your vehicle from the elements. Our trailers have extra features such as hydraulic lift gates and air-compressed suspension, which improve our vehicle handling.
- Open-air transport makes use of an open truck. The trailer has room for several vehicles, usually around 8-12 depending on their sizes. Sharing the space with other shippers helps to cut down the costs. It is the most popular and affordable option for shipping cars to or from Kwethluk.
- Terminal-to-terminal shipping is by far the cheapest delivery option. We will agree on a convenient depot in the state where you can drop off or pick-up the vehicle.
- Door-to-door shipping is an effective solution for delivering the vehicle without having to go through the shipping terminals. We will fetch it and send it to anywhere that you want to collect it.
A-1 Auto Transport offers international car shipping services using the roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) and container shipping standards.
- RoRo is one of the cheapest and most common shipping standards. We will collect the car at the port or anywhere that you send us and load it directly into a ship’s deck by driving it.
- The R-Rak system allows shipping companies to keep four standard saloon cars in one shipping container. You can transport your vehicle more efficiently using a secure option.
- When you use the R-Rak option, you can load a few personal belongings inside the car. You might need more room to include the household goods if you are going out of the country. An exclusive container will do a better job in this case.
How to prepare your car for shipping
Make sure that the transport company gives you the cell phone number of the driver responsible for your car’s transportation. You should also get the vehicle registration sorted out at the state’s DMV website. Take the car for a thorough wash before the pick-up date. Cleaning should help to expose all the hidden cosmetic damage on the vehicle. Walk around as you note down the dents and scratches. You may take dated photographs as well. Make sure that you share this with the truck driver on the collection and that they acknowledge it. Do not keep too much fuel in the gas tank. Run it down to about a quarter, which is enough for driving the car on the truck’s ramp when loading and unloading. It will help to lower your car’s weight and probably drive down your cost to ship. You may keep a gallon ready at the delivery point if you expect a long drive to the next fuelling station. Car shipping companies do not allow you to keep personal goods and household items in your vehicle during transportation. The rule extends to aftermarket accessories like stereo systems, DVD players, and GPS. Get the car checked by a mechanic to keep it in running shape. Cars with mechanical problems usually attract extra charges and penalties from the transport company. For non-op vehicles, you need to check with the transport company in advance. Make sure that there are no fluid leaks. The following maintenance steps will help you if you are short of time.
- Top-off all the fluids.
- Keep the battery on a full charge and check if the terminals work.
- Make sure that you have well-inflated tires.
- Note down the unsolved mechanical problems. You will share this with the truck driver.
Retract the antenna, fold in the side-view mirrors, and cover the external parts that could run into damage during transportation. Disable the alarm system and prepare a set of spare keys that you will give the truck driver.
