Shipping A Car You Just Bought | New Car Transport

Any time you’re looking to buy a new car, you want to find exactly what you’re looking for. After all, it’s a big investment and hopefully, it’s something that you’ll be able to rely on for years. It should meet all your requirements.

The problem is that when we do find that perfect car that we’ve been looking for, it’s often after an exhaustive search lead us to a private seller or dealer in another city, maybe even another state!

Most dealerships, especially when you’re buying a brand new car, can arrange to have it shipped to where you live. There are two things to understand about this process. Except for a few high-end and luxury automakers, most dealers are not going to be delivering the vehicle you’ve bought on one of their own trucks. They partner with (in other words, hire) a company to move the car for you, just like you or I would if we needed the service.

The second point is that this means there is no difference—and likely no savings—to be had by having the dealership deliver the vehicle. If you’re willing to make a few phone calls, get a couple estimates and invest a few minutes of your time, you’ll likely be able to save significant money and possibly even get a quicker delivery.

Assessing New Car Auto Transport Companies

  • Think Enclosed - Shipping a new car is not much different from shipping a used car, classic car, or any other type of vehicle. The main difference may be that you want to make sure you’re using an enclosed carrier when having it shipped. It offers more protection than the standard open-air trucks and will ensure you get your new car in the mint condition you expect. When getting a cost estimate, make sure you’re asking for a quote for enclosed transport.
  • Look For Experience - Seek out more established companies with a proven track records of experience, and ideally, one that delivers new cars on a regular basis. While shorter delivers may leave you with less options, there are usually some good regional and local companies that have a good amount of expertise. Larger operations, such as A-1 Auto Transport, also maintain offices in most major cities around the U.S. Experience counts in this industry so make sure you’ve seen evidence of it before committing to anything!

...my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
