Using Lubbock Auto Transport Services
- Timeframe - Before getting quotes from transport companies, you should have a general idea of the timeframe you have for pick up and delivery. One of the best ways to save money on shipping a car is by giving the transporter plenty of lead time before you need your vehicle shipped. If you have the luxury of being flexible with your timeframe, that’s another way to potentially get greater value since you may be able to fill a previously booked spot that has become available on the auto carrier.
- Budget - Having a budget goes hand-in-hand with planning out a timeframe that works for you. Both factors can play into what services are available to you and you may be surprised at some of the bargains to be had when you shop around. Just because one company has a high rate for a certain delivery timeframe or location doesn’t mean that another company will be just as high. If you give yourself time to compare prices, you may be surprised at the deals and discounts to be had when shipping a car in Lubbock. (See below for local company directory.)
- Enclosed Transport - Since it’s the more affordable of the two options, most vehicles are delivered in an open air carrier that is equipped to move multiple cars at once. In certain circumstances, however, it may be more appropriate to opt for an enclosed carrier that offers more protection during delivery. Enclosed transport is ideal for exotic, luxury, antique and classic cars and vintage automobiles. Though it’s designed for higher end autos, enclosed transport is available for all vehicles, including motorcycles, trucks, and ATVs.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Lubbock
For long distance shipping, open carriers are most often employed. They have a higher carrying capacity and they’re cheaper to book. Since one truck can ship more than 10 cars in a single trip, the price is quite low. Each of the clients pays a portion of the transportation cost, so a $500 fee or lower for interstate transportation is not uncommon.
Ideally, you should book your shipments a few weeks before the pickup date. If you book your transport in advance, it’s far more likely we’ll be able to accommodate your needs.
Short notices often require a truck to be sent specifically for your car. The price will no longer be split with other customers, so you’ll have to pay more. On the other hand, since enclosed carriers are usually used for such shipments, you’ll benefit from increased protection, white glove service, and regular notifications on the location of your vehicle.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Lubbock
To safely transport your car to Lubbock, knowing its exact brand, type and preparing accordingly is mandatory. Classic vehicles may be more fragile than modern one, or they may have unusual characteristic that must be accounted for. Some luxury automobiles have a very low ground clearance level, meaning you cannot load/unload them with just any ramp.
To inform A1 auto transport of your vehicle’s requirements, call today. We’ll do our own research as well, and together with your input, we’ll prepare a shipping experience that’s ideal for your car.
Special Discounts in Lubbock
Shipping one car can be a tiring and time consuming process. Shipping several vehicles compounds this effect. However, by working with A1 auto transport, not only will you save yourself a lot of time and energy, but you’ll also get a discount when shipping more than one car.
Our discounts come in many forms. Seniors can benefit from them, as can students and military personnel. People shipping their automobiles for the first time can do so at a lower price. Our discounts apply even to those who choose to spend their winters in the warmer parts of the country.
International Shipping to/from Lubbock
Especially when in a hurry, you may be tempted to use the first carrier you can find. However, relying on the wrong company may get you scammed.
First of all, if the company isn’t large enough to ship to all US locations, it’s likely they won’t know how to properly transport a car abroad. In such cases, your property may be delayed at customs or you may be charged extra upon delivery.
Instead of asking if the company engages in international transport, it may be a better option to check their website for yourself. This way, you’ll avoid handing your car over to an inexperienced team that may only need a paycheck despite not having the tools or knowledge to engage in international shipping.
Cheap Transportation Options in Lubbock
The further you go, the more fuel your car will consume. You'll need to also take into consideration your accommodation during the night, food expenses, repair bills in case your car breaks down, and preparations for any surprises that might come your way.
Either do all this, or you can simply hire A1 auto transport and skip the entire lengthy process. Our staff is experienced and our time tested shipping system enables us to transport your car at a low rate, so you'll get a similar price without wasting days on the road. We also keep your car stationary, partially or completely protected from outside factors, depending on your option, and without adding any structural strain or mileage during the trip.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Lubbock
If you want to transport your car in extremely safe conditions, you need to take the appropriate measures. It's not enough to order a standard service and rely on an open carrier to get the job done. There are measures of superior quality you can consider.
Enclosed carriers are a step above open ones for a number of reasons. They cover your car completely, so it won't get hit by animals or pebbles. They arrive faster, especially if you order one just for your car, meaning it will spend less time being exposed to road conditions. You'll receive a higher insurance policy and regular notifications.
However, if even this level of service is insufficient, you can always order air freight. A plane can take your car anywhere in the world in very safe conditions, though the price is substantial.
