Shipping a Car to Newport News
Keep these key points in mind when shipping a car to Newport News:
- Traffic in Newport News can be quite hectic, especially during the morning and evening rush hours. Before shipping the car you should make sure the car is in good running condition with brakes, tires, and engine all in good working order.
- If you are on a tight budget, there are several local terminals in and around Newport News. If possible, have the company deliver the car to a local terminal instead of delivery to your door as terminal shipping can help cut the cost of auto transport.
- Be sure to scope the area out and see where the local gas stations are. In Newport news, the stations can be spread out so being able to drive straight to one when the car is delivered will help since the car should have no more than a quarter tank of fuel in it for transport.
- You will need to have the car registered locally within 30 days. Automobiles in Newport News must also pass a vehicle inspection, so you should find out where the nearest inspection stations are located.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Newport News
When thinking of transporting a luxury or classic car to Newport News, most people call a broker, since they’re easy to find and can generally solve your problem. However, a broker cannot guarantee the safety of your shipment, since they just connect people to direct carriers. The quality of that carrier is left for speculation.
To avoid troublesome situations, it’s much better to speak directly to an auto transport company. Unfortunately, not all shippers work nationwide, so you may end up calling several before finding one that can take your car.
If you’d like to skip all that searching and wasted energy, then simply call A1 auto transport. Our company works nationwide and is very transparent about its services. You can read the reviews for more details or speak to an employee.
Special Discounts in Newport News
Among the various special deals A1 auto transport offers, our seasonal and first timer discounts stand out, since everyone working with us will likely benefit from one or both of them at some point.
First timer discounts are afforded to all our customers, regardless of their background, the first time they opt for our company. This offer can be combined with any other, including with our seasonal offers, available during certain months. Unlike other price reductions, such as those for seniors or the multi car offers, these can be used by everyone. You can even combine them with other discounts for a much better deal.
Call now to see if a seasonal discount is available this month. You can also check to see if you meet the criteria for some other offer. Seniors, students, military personnel, and many others qualify for a price reduction.

While our team prepares for the project, you can take care of own problems. On the scheduled day, you can meet us to hand over the car or have a family member/friend to do it in your stead. In the second case, he/she will need a power of attorney. You can find the form online.
Cheap Transportation Options in Newport News
It takes time to find an auto transport company that can ship your car at the price you want. Brokers may offer a fast solution, but their prices are rarely the cheapest, since even if they connect you to a cheap carrier, they'll have to add their own fee on top of the original fee.
Speaking to direct carriers is a better alternative, but they can be difficult to find, even online, and you have to speak to them one by one. However, if you're trying to save money, this is work you'll likely have to do.
Larger companies, like A1 auto transport, have the tools needed to offer multiple shipping options. Some are cheaper while others are significantly more expensive. If you're looking for a lower price, you can call our staff ask for our cheapest option. They'll check if you qualify for discounts, what offer will be most helpful, and let you know.
