Safe & Reliable Milford Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
A New England village city with a rich connection to the nation’s historical past, the community of Milford, Connecticut was originally settled almost 400 years ago. Parts of the city are located on both the Housatonic River and Long Island Sound and its location was a factor in establishing the area as an early center of the oyster industry. Since 1975 Milford has hosted an annual oyster festival to celebrate the local seafood delicacy and its history in New Haven County.

Using Milford Auto Transport Services
- Running Condition - Some car shipping companies may move a vehicle that is nonoperational, but generally speaking, they need to be in good running condition. It’s usually recommended that your check over basic maintenance or have a mechanic look at your car before hiring a company to move it. The vehicles are driven minimally, and only then to be loaded and unloaded from the carrier, but it’s good to have a clean bill of mechanical health (and a record of it!) before having your car shipped.
- Keep Records - This includes the maintenance we mentioned above, as well as the contract you have with the auto carrier. Staying organized and keeping good records is the best way to make sure all the details are tended to and that you have documentation of the services, condition, and terms of your auto delivery.
- Compare Prices - One of the easiest ways to save money on auto transport in Milford is by using online pricing tools to compare companies and services. Most companies offer a free cost estimate through their website and you can easily get 10 different competing quotes in a matter of minutes. The important thing is to use discretion when selecting a company. If one quote is suspiciously low compared to all the others, makes sure to do your research before signing a contract!
