Using Lakewood Vehicle Transport Companies
- The Car Shipping Process - If this is your first time shipping a vehicle, you probably have some basic questions about how it works. The first step is to gather the information you’ll need to get a cost estimate. This includes things like the type of vehicle, including make and model, the location and destination, the timeframe for delivery, and what type of transport options you choose. Armed with this information, you can contact companies to collect price quotes and compare them against one another to find the best option. Once you choose a company to move your vehicle, the carrier will meet you at the specified time and location to load it onto the carrier. After your vehicle is loaded and on the road, you just need to be available to pick it up when it arrives!

- Cost of Auto Transport - Cost is generally the biggest concern for customers since it can be expensive to ship a car, especially over a long distance or across the country. Part of the reason it’s recommended that you contact several auto shippers is so that you can get an understanding of the different services offered, as well as the price range. This is an important step and should not be overlooked! The price estimates you receive will vary from company to company and that’s a good thing: it allows you to spot the suspiciously low prices and find a good balance between cost-effectiveness and quality of service. Here are some recent price quotes for shipping a car in Lakewood, CA:
- Lakewood, CA to Dallas, TX - $845

Fuel costs, which are a factor of driving distance, are a major part of what goes into the cost of moving a vehicle. Use this driving distance calculator to determine how far your shipping distance is.
- Saving Money - Everyone likes to save money and there a number of ways you can minimize your costs when hiring a company to move your car. One of the easiest ways to do this is by choosing the most affordable method for moving a vehicle, which is open air terminal transport. Using an open air carrier, which can hold several cars, reduces the cost to the carrier, which in turn lowers the cost to you. Terminal transport just means the vehicle is delivered to a nearby shipping terminal, where you then pick up the vehicle. The other option, door-to-door transport, cuts out the need to pick up the car at a terminal, but it does cost more. The second major way to save on car shipping is by asking about discounts. Some common discount programs include price breaks for military, students, seniors, AAA members, snowbirds and first-time car shippers.

International Shipping to/from Lakewood
The shipping industry can be full of dangers for those who aren't careful or experienced. It can be easy to fall for empty promises only to end up with surprise charges later on. Scams are more common than you may think. And, once the car has passed the border, it can end up anywhere with or without your permission.
If you don't want to take chances with your property, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself. Picking the right company is the first step. Someone with a long history in the industry, like A1 auto transport, isn't likely to cause problems since its reputation is on the line.

You can verify if you meet the requirements for receiving our discounts using the number above or the page on our site that explains them.
Most shipping companies operate primarily using open carriers, since their capacity to move cars is higher, so they're more efficient. We recommend you use this option too, since it's cheaper. If you want to further reduce the expected fee, don't be picky about the meet-up spot. You'll find it much cheaper to use terminals.
