Areas we cover within Livingston
A-1 Auto Transport is licensed and registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as a carrier firm. Carrier firms operate differently from brokerage firms. Carrier firms own the resources needed to ship different cars. Brokerage firms on the other hand, do not have such resources, which makes them operate in middleman capacity by acting as the link between clients and carrier firms. A-1 Auto Transport, being a carrier firm, allows us to offer a comprehensive scope of service when shipping cars to or from Livingston.
Years of interacting with our Livingston clientele from their home address, business premises or terminal points has seen us get well versed with the region. We offer timely car shipping services across every location in Livingston.
Auto transport services we provide
- Heavy equipment shipping: Farmers across Livingston in need of professional carrier services need not look further. A-1 Auto Transport’s heavy equipment shipping services cater to shipping agricultural equipment at rock-bottom prices. We are qualified for transporting different equipment including harvesters, backhoes and tractors. Additionally, we can transport special heavy machinery like grape pressers, furnaces and turbines for processing plants.
- Inoperable car shipping: A-1 Auto Transport offers to transport inoperable automotive. We are well-resourced in winches, forklifts, rollback trucks and flatbed towers, which facilitate efficient shipping of such cars. Every situation is different, as a car can be rendered inoperable due to a fatal accident or mechanical issues. Our team of experts is trained in handling different case scenarios. It is however, safe to note that shipping inoperable cars is more expensive than shipping cars in good condition, as it takes special resources. We however, consider the vehicle profile, the distance to be covered, gas prices and the complexity of the situation when pricing such an order. We guarantee reasonable charges.
Types of cars we ship
We transport different types of automotives including trucks, vans, motorcycles, ATVs, RVs & motorhomes, salvaged cars, inoperable cars, sedans, SUVs, electric & hybrid cars and different heavy equipment.
How to prepare your car for shipping
- Run a car maintenance check: This involves fixing any fluid leaks before filling all fluids to their recommended levels. Also check that all tires are properly inflated and that the car battery is sufficiently charged if need be. Additionally, check the car’s mileage before shipping.
- Remove all personal items: The FMCSA, under mandate of the Department of Transportation, prohibits carrier firms from shipping cars with household goods in them. These include items like clothing, electronics, appliances and general shopping items. Additionally, remove all aftermarket installations like DVD players, GPS navigation systems and external speakers. Such items, are not covered against loss or damage.
- Wash the car: Carrier firms rely on a car hauler’s inspection report to identify the pre-existing damages on the car. Washing the car before the day of shipping facilitates the report as it makes the damages more visible.
- Mind the fuel: Shipping a car with a full tank of gas is not recommended as this makes the car heavier. The weightier the car the higher the shipping fee. We advise that you ship the car with just a quarter-full tank of gas. This is sufficient for covering the loading and offloading as well as covering the distance to the nearest gas station for refill.
