Using Minneapolis Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Minneapolis car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Focus on customer service: Customer service is an important part of the transport process because you want to work with a company that is willing and eager to take care of your needs.
- Ask plenty of questions: While the transport process is not generally a complex one, it is important to understand how it works from the time you drop off your vehicle to the time you either pick it up or have it delivered. Ask questions about this process so that you are sure you know what is going on at all stages of transport.
- Read your contract carefully: If you don’t understand any component of it, then you may end up signing something that you don’t understand nor agree with.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Minneapolis
Long distance auto transport involves a lot of planning which you can skip using our services. Because our team does this on a daily basis, we know the roads our truck will have to take to reach you and your destination point. We can easily calculate what this trip will cost you and give you an appropriate estimate.
Doing it on your own means spending hours, if not days, planning out the route, finding safe areas to stop in, booking hotels, scheduling meals, etc. Your car will accumulate mileage while on the road and some of its pieces may break down during the drive.
Auto transportation services are a cheap and speedy solution to this problem. You’ll waste little time and pay the same price for shipping your vehicle. Our prices are sometimes even lower than what you’d pay for the trip, due to our trucks’ large carrying capacity.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Minneapolis
A1 auto transport takes orders from Minneapolis and many other US cities. If you’d like to call us about transporting a luxury or classic car, then you’ll most likely want an enclosed truck for the added security.
Because open trailers are more cost effective, we have fewer enclosed carriers. They are usually reserved for transporting expensive or fragile vehicles, or for last minute calls. Consult with our personnel to see what type of carrier is best for your vehicle, what the logistics of the transport are, and how to proceed.

If you’re interested in our company’s discounts, here’s what you should know: first of all, our offer is only available to our military, student, and senior clients.

International Shipping to/from Minneapolis
A simple way of taking your car abroad is onboard an open carrier. Our trucks can take it to any place connected by land and roads. If you need a faster delivery or superior protection, we'll provide an enclosed auto carrier instead.
Passing an ocean will not be a problem. We will book a ship for your automobile and arrange for another truck to pick it up at the port. Although transport by ship is a bit slow, sometimes taking as much as a month, it's the most cost effective way to ship over an ocean. The alternative of a plane is far too expensive and difficult to book.
Cheap Transportation Options in Minneapolis
To determine your auto shipping costs, you don't need anything more than to either use the quote calculator or the phone number we've put at your disposal on our website. Through our number, you can reach an employee that can give you a more accurate price. He/she can also make modifications, so you'll receive a cheaper service, a faster one, etc.
The standard shipping method with an open carrier is also the most price effective. This is mainly due to transporting more cars at a time than with enclosed trucks, though the speed is also lower. Depending on the distance, your car will travel across, there's a good chance the carrier will drop off other cars before it. This may lead to slight route modifications and a slower travel speed.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Minneapolis
Moving a vehicle from one place to another becomes increasingly complicated when the distance between the 2 locations becomes bigger. These complications can put your car at risk if you don't deal with them well. If you're not sure how to prepare, so you'll avoid dangerous situations, asking the assistance of a professional shipper is best.
With A1 auto transport’s carriers, you can take your car to any place on land safely. Using a container and a ship, we can even move it to another continent. Throughout the process, we can give it partial or complete protection from outside factors, such as rain, flying objects, etc. We will also provide an insurance policy in case of an unexpected incident.
