Using Lakeland Vehicle Transport Companies
- Use the Internet - Almost every car shipping and vehicle transport company has a website that will offer a FREE price quote on the cost of moving your car to anywhere they service. You can take advantage of this by collecting quotes from several companies and choosing the one that works best for you.
- Online Auto Tracking - Before hiring a company, ask if they provide online tracking. The auto transporters that are using modern carriers and current technology should offer satellite or GPS tracking as a standard part of any relocation package they offer.
- Licensed & Insured - By law, all auto shipping companies should be licensed and insured and they should freely share the details of this information if you ask about it. If a company isn’t forthright about their operating status, licensing or insurance, you should keep looking. Many resources for verifying an auto transport company can be found on the FMCSA licensing page.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Lakeland
If you’re a busy adult who wishes to avoid spending a week driving just to move to a new city, an auto transport service combined with a moving company is your best bet. While the carrier takes your car, you can focus on communicating with the movers and making sure your belongings are carried carefully.
Dealing with an auto transport service is quite fast and straightforward. You arrange the shipment over the phone, then a carrier will come to take your car. The day was already discussed and decided upon previously, so all you have to do is show up. Picking up the car takes at most 30 minutes, so you can quickly get back to your work. And, since A1 auto transport is not limited by location or distance, you don’t have to search heavily before finding a shipper capable of long distance auto transportation.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Lakeland
Brokers are middlemen specializing in connecting carriers and clients. They take a fee for their work, so the price you get when using one is higher than when working directly with the shipping company. Also, the service may be problematic, especially if you’re shipping a high value vehicle.
It’s not recommended you ship a luxury or a classic car with a carrier/team specialized in everyday use vehicles. This may lead to unforeseen damages and delays.
Instead, using a specialized service, like A1 auto transport’s white glove option, will dramatically increase the safety of your shipment. By working with our team, you’ll also have full transparency, something that a brokerage firm simply cannot deliver.
Special discounts in Lakeland
For your car to safely reach Lakeland, our services may be the best solution. Not only can we customize them for any situation, but we also provide a few price reductions in case you need financial help.
For example, if you’re looking to pay as little as possible, you can use a seasonal discount. They’re not available all the time, but they come in sufficient number, so you won’t have to wait for long.
If you’re part of the military, a senior, a student, or if it’s your first time using our services, let us know. In all these situations, you’ll receive a discount.
Under certain conditions, seasonal movers will also get a price reduction. Finally, anyone shipping more than one car will receive one as well.
International Shipping to/from Lakeland
The pickier you are regarding your car's transportation, the more your shipment will cost you. Although the main factor of an international shipping project’s cost is the distance, your choice of an open or an enclosed carrier, can have a massive influence.
Enclosed carriers are fewer in number, faster, and safer in some ways, though they can ship less cars at a time compared to their counterpart. All these factors contribute to their much higher cost. This price can go up along with the distance and can reach further heights if you're shipping to a different continent.
When browsing through your options, we recommend asking our employees what adding them to the package would add to the cost. By being selective, you can get the shipping experience you need without paying more than you've planned for.
Cheap Transportation Options in Lakeland
A1 auto transport isn't the only shipping company out there, but we're one of the best both in terms of price and results. Our staff spends numerous hours preparing and coordinating transports, so we minimize mistakes and keep prices at a minimum.
If you want to obtain the cheapest possible fee, it's best to opt for a terminal to terminal transport and an open carrier. The RoRo method is popular for its low costs when overseas transportation is needed.
We're also equipped to handle a variety of situations. Whether your car is broken or in an obscure location, we'll be able to move it.
