Our transport services in Mountain Village
When planning to transport your vehicle, it is important that you understand the options available before you start looking for estimates. Whenever you feel torn between open-air and enclosed transport, here is what you need to know.
- Open-air transport is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about car shipping for the first time. You must have come across one of these trucks on the highways. It is the easiest option to book and the cheapest.
- When cars travel on an open truck, they become vulnerable to the dictates of nature. Roadside debris, dust or inclement weather may cause cosmetic damage to the vehicles. Enclosed transport helps to secure the automobiles from such risks. When you have a rare classic or high-end luxury vehicle, it is the most effective solution.
You can choose the door-to-door delivery option if you do not want to move around transport terminals. It also prevents your car from running into potential damage at the terminals. The terminal option will save you money when shipping cars to or from Mountain Village. You will drop-off and pick-up the car at appointed A-1 Auto Transport terminals. While everything about international car shipping sounds complicated, A-1 Auto Transport makes it a breeze. Whether you need help with customs and documentation or finding the right transport solution, we have the answers. Here are some of the services that you can expect from us.
- Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo): We take a running car and drive it up the ramp of a boat, secure it and send it to the destination port where we unload it by driving. It is the most affordable international shipping
- Containerized transport: We have shipping containers that we use to secure high-value automobiles and personal goods for our customers. We use special cranes to lift-on or lift-off the cargo on the ship. It makes this option a slightly expensive affair compared to RoRo.
Cars that we ship
We have transport services covering all kinds of automobiles to all parts of the country. Let us ship your SUVs, trucks, boats, farm machinery, or snowmobiles affordably and reliably.
Preparing your vehicle for shipping
Keeping the car in good running shape is one of the ways that you can use to keep down the costs and enjoy the shipping experience. The following maintenance checks can help you with this step.
- Check the car for mechanical problems or fluid leaks and get them fixed.
- Top-off all the fluids and acclimatize the vehicle to the Alaskan environment.
- Keep the battery on a full charge.
- Make sure that you have well-inflated tires.
The transporter will not accept the car if it has your valuables and household goods inside. They will land into trouble with the authorities if they agree to keep these items in your vehicle. You will not get insurance protection for such situations. The transport company can share their policy on personal items to help you plan. Take out the removable external parts like fog lights, luggage racks, ground effects, and spoilers. Cover everything else that you cannot remove with protective padding. Retract the antenna and fold in the side-view mirrors. If you have a convertible, make sure that you secure the top cover to prevent damage. Wash the vehicle and inspect it for paint blemishes, dents, and scratches. Write down your findings and make sure that you share this with the truck driver. It is even better if you can take dated photographs to keep together with the inspection report. Make a spare set of keys that you will hand over to the truck driver. Do not give out your originals because there is a slight risk of losing them during transportation. Disable the alarm system before sending off the vehicle.
A-1 Auto Transport has more than 20 years of car shipping experience under their hat. If you choose our service when shipping cars to or from Mountain Village, you will get the best care for your vehicle at the most competitive rates.
