Safe And Reliable Nebraska Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
At first glance, Nebraska seems to be one of the quieter of the Great Plains states. It is lined with corn fields and other representations of its agricultural heyday and seems to be a reminder of the benefit of a slower and more measured pace of life. However, this state is teeming with life in many ways, from the presence of big business headquarters in the state to the many recreational options for visitors looking for something to do during their stint in this state.
From a historical perspective, one of the interesting things about this state is the fact that the California Gold Rush was responsible for bringing many of the people that did come to this state here. It was considered the point where the “West Begins.” This state is right in the midst of Tornado Alley, so many storm chasers spend the spring season here chasing these violent storms. Big business also has a big presence here; Kool-Aid was created in Hastings, while CliffsNotes were developed in Rising City. Financial guru Warren Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, is located in Omaha and TD Ameritrade is located in this state as well. If you are just visiting or relocating for professional purposes, then you will surely need a vehicle with which to get around. Consider Nebraska auto transport to have your own vehicle in place, so that you can get around with comfort and convenience.

Using Nebraska Car Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Nebraska car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind.
- Choose the right transport option for your vehicle: The type of transport you will need depends on your vehicle. If you have a traditional car, then you may be just fine with open-air transport, as it is the most affordable. However, if yours is a custom vehicle or something you’ve fully restored, then you might consider a more safe form of transport, such as an enclosed option.
- Clear out all personal effects from your vehicle: Don’t leave anything of personal value in your vehicle during transport. The company will tell you that they are not responsible for these effects and this is definitely the case. Everything from the case for your sunglasses to make-up and CDs should be removed prior to transport.
- Consider a gap insurance plan: There may be a gap in coverage from what the auto transport company insurance will cover for your vehicle and what your personal insurance will cover if something happens to your vehicle during transport. Consider a supplemental policy to close the gap between what both insurances cover on your vehicle should it be damaged during transport.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Nebraska
Nebraska citizens may ship their vehicles within the same state, nationwide, or internationally with our services. Our carriers can transport more than 10 vehicles at a time. So, if you have multiple cars, you can ship them on the same truck.
If you wish to keep the car secret, as a birthday gift, or to be exposed in a show, our enclosed carrier will keep it confidential. Such a carrier also comes with a white glove service. It’ll arrive faster at its destination, and the driver will keep you informed of its location on a daily basis.
International Auto Transport from/to Nebraska
A1 Auto Transport does not limit its services to the United States. We can ship your car from Nebraska to another country or continent and vice versa.
Before shipping it, check the import taxes of the country you’re moving to, since they can fluctuate from one state to another. Also, make sure your car meets environmental standards and other regulations.
Call our staff and discuss these problems, as we might have the knowledge you’re looking for or be able to point you in the right direction. We can also help you prepare the necessary paperwork and get the car past customs.
Cheap Car Transportation Options in Nebraska
When shipping a car to or from Nebraska, there are both expensive and cheap options you can choose from.
For example, enclosed carriers come with a white glove service, extra protection, and regular notifications during transport. However, it’s much more affordable to use an open truck.
Our door to door service is much more convenient than driving the car to and from the nearest terminal, but it’s also more expensive.
For the cheapest auto transportation service, we recommend using an open carrier and our terminal network. You can also pick a colder time of the year to transport your car, as there is less demand during such months, and we provide seasonal offerings.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Nebraska
Enclosed transportation services are an excellent option for transporting antique or luxury cars in Nebraska. You may pay more, but the benefits are many, including protection against all outside elements, a lift gate option, white glove service, etc.
Enclosed auto carriers are the key to keeping the condition of classic, exotic, and luxury cars pristine. You can use a hard-side or soft-side carrier. The sides of soft-side enclosed carriers are constructed from a heavy canvas and can load an average of six cars per load, while hard-side enclosed carriers are airtight and can hold anywhere from one to six cars.
Nebraska Special Discounts
Our Nebraska Military members are awarded special discounts when using our services. We also help students handle their expenses by reducing the price on their auto transportation requests. Of course, seniors are also on our list of people qualified for special discounts. You can even inquire about our seasonal discounts if you’d like to transport a vehicle cheaper.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Nebraska
Road conditions are an important factor in maintaining the safety of your vehicle during transport. This is why our company relies on the same routes for most of our services. If you’re in a distant area with no tested roads around, our staff will research your neighborhood to make sure the trip can proceed without problems.
Once loaded on our truck, your car is as safe as in your own garage. The surrounding beams protect it from the elements, while our driver makes sure it has a smooth trip.
How to Request a Price Estimate
Our online form is most often used by those looking for a price estimate. It’s fast, simple and convenient. To receive an accurate estimate, make sure you complete every field with the correct information.
However, if you have a few minutes available, we recommend calling instead. Some of our past clients managed to save up to 15% in costs this way. In every transport, there are certain particularities which may affect the price, the type of service needed, etc. If there’s a more efficient and/or cheaper way to ship your vehicle, our staff will let you know.

Vehicle Registration Process in Nebraska
You have the option to register a vehicle via mail or in person in Nebraska. Newly moved residents need to undergo vehicle inspection through a sheriff's office. To register a vehicle, you must have insurance proof, the vehicle's title, and pay a registration fee, as well as a excise and sales tax.
All vehicles in Nebraska must be registered. You need to register your vehicle even if you recently purchased it or if you moved to the state.
Moving to Nebraska?
To start the vehicle registration, you will be given 30 days as a grace period. However, if the vehicle is already registered and titled from a different state, you need to:
- Present auto insurance proof.
- Move the lien details of the County Treasurer's station.
- Have the vehicle inspected.
- Start the registration in Nebraska.
Below are the steps you must follow.
Transferring Lien Details
If necessary, you need to transfer the lien information on the vehicle to the Treasurer's Office in the county. You must:
- Proceed to the Treasurer's office in your county.
- Inform them to call the lien holder to transfer the title. The conversion of the title may be processed with an electronic copy or the actual title document itself.
- Secure an electronic copy of the title or a photocopy of it.
Have your Vehicle Inspected
All vehicles registered outside the state need to be inspected at a sheriff's office prior to their registration in Nebraska.
- Proceed to the inspection station.
- Show the title of the vehicle or a photocopy of it.
- Pay the inspection fee. ($10)
The inspection is valid for ninety days. Your vehicle needs to be re-evaluated if you did not complete the registration after the 90-day period.
The Registration Process for Vehicles from another State
After you finished the steps above, proceed to the office of the County Treasurer and:
- Show a Title copy.
- Completely fill out and submit the Title Certificate Application form.
- Present the inspection certificate.
- Show the auto insurance proof.
- Pay the applicable fees.
Vehicles which are leased need a lease agreement copy with a signature on it during the registration process.
Vehicle Registration in Nebraska
The state requires all vehicles to be registered in 30 days at the County Treasurer's office via mail or in person.
The expiry date of your registration depends on the date when your vehicle was bought. However, if you need to register 2 or more vehicles under your name, you have the option to register them on a yearly basis with your preferred month.
Registering a vehicle in person
Go to the office of the Country Treasurer and:
- Present your auto insurance proof. (Original copies only)

For other kinds of vehicles like scooters, snowmobiles, and motorcycles, registration and titling are required as well.
Registering a vehicle that is non-operational
You do not need to pay a registration fee if your car was not used for one year since the expiry date of its last registration.
To register the vehicle:
- Show a Non-Use and Storage Affidavit which describes the details of your non-usage of the vehicle.
- Submit the form to the local county station.

- A recent Earnings and Leave Statement;
- Proof of ownership, like the importer's certificate, the title of the vehicle, manufacturer's origin document, and a certificate from the importer.
Once you have successfully completed the requirements, you will receive NE license plates (if you’re not a resident). Your spouse is also eligible to the same privilege.
You will be given 30 calendar days to complete the registration if you wish to permanently reside in Nebraska after your active duty. You need to follow the process discussed in the "Moving to Nebraska" portion.

Vehicle owners will receive their stickers and license plates from the office of the County Treasurer upon registration, except if they request to obtain vanity or specialty plates which may take a few days longer.
They also have the option to choose from the sample plates before they decide the purchase of them. The standard shipping cost is 5 US dollars per license plate if it is within the country and 10 US dollars if it’s outside the US.
