Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Madison
If you’re shipping your car over long distances and haven’t visited the destination point yet, you may want to do some research on it. Terminal to terminal shipping is significantly cheaper than door to door. However, if there isn’t a terminal near your location, the second type of service will be necessary.
Speak to our staff for more information. If there isn’t a terminal near your new home, we can deliver your car directly to your doorstep. In case your new residency’s road isn’t wide enough to permit the passing of our truck, we’ll deliver your car to the nearest location which allows our access. This can be any large parking lot, like one belonging to a supermarket.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Madison
Luxury and classic cars can be difficult to transport without the proper equipment. If the ramp isn’t designed for low ground clearance vehicles, it may be hard to load/unload them. Without a covered truck, bad weather or debris may hit the body, damaging the paint or leaving dents. Such damages may seem minor, but they can be very expensive to fix, especially on a high end vehicle.
The company handling your car must have the proper experience and equipment for the job. A1 auto transport is one of these companies. We’ve been in the auto shipping business for decades, so we’ve had plenty of time to develop a superior shipping system.

Cheap Transportation Options in Madison
Shipping cars isn't cheap. Just the cost of the fuel, the driver's salary, food and accommodation over long distances is quite taxing. However, by using open carriers and shipping 10 or more cars at a time, we can mitigate these costs and spread them out.
As a result, clients can ship cars at prices sometimes lower than what they'd pay to transport them on their own. Considering you'll save time too, it's no wonder open auto carriers are so popular.
There are a few other matters you should understand if you're seeking the best price. Terminal to terminal services, discounts, and shipping routes play huge roles in obtaining a lower quote. If you'd like to discuss them, call today.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Madison
A1 auto transport can provide several levels of security measures depending on your requirements and budget.
The simplest form of security is provided by our open trucks and experienced personnel. Although the trip takes longer due to shipping multiple vehicles at a time, your car will not accumulate damage or mileage. It will also receive protection from outside forces, such as bad weather, wind flown objects, etc. The bars and beams around it act like a natural barrier.
If you want to increase your security measures further, you can upgrade to our white glove service. Through it, you'll receive regular notifications, a high insurance limit, and most importantly, enclosed carrier transportation.
