A-1 Auto Transport Announces Motorcycle Shipping As An Addition To Their Transport Services
Aptos, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2011
A-1 Auto Transport has yet again stepped up their efforts to fully satisfy their customers by adding motorcycle shipping to their vast array of services. Specializing in the shipment of automobiles for over two decades now, A-1 Auto Transport has recently been looking to extend their services into new markets across the board. In recent years, they have added services such as shipping boats and household goods, and even providing auto insurance quotes. In accordance with their goal to provide customers with a comprehensive service, A-1 Auto Transport Marketing Director Joe Webster stated that "These recent changes are only the beginning. There's still much more to come."
Whether you're relocating your motorcycle, buying a new one from out of state, or planning a fly and ride vacation, you want to know that you're getting the highest quality services on the market, but also for a reasonable price. A-1 Auto Transport has been providing the lowest car shipping rates on the market for years and is now going to bring their "low prices for great services" motto to the motorcycle shipping industry.
Having your motorcycle shipped to its new destination by a certified auto carrier that specializes in motorcycle transport is definitely the safest way to go. Conversely, when moving your bike with an all-in-one moving company that has little experience with moving motorcycles, you're taking quite a risk. If not properly loaded and secured for shipment, your motorcycle could suffer thousands of dollars in damages due to negligence.
Rather than risking the unnecessary stress and damages that can come along with using unqualified auto transport companies to move your motorcycle, choose a certified company that will be able to get the job done the way it's supposed to be done. A-1 Auto Transport uses the most modern and secure forms of shipment when it comes to motorcycle transport. Their shipping process involves padding the frame of the bike to prevent dings and scratches during shipment. After being padded, the bike is then loaded and strapped into an enclosed carrier crate. This is done to ensure that the motorcycle does not shift during transport, and also to make sure that no external elements are able to affect the condition of the bike.
This newest addition to the line-up of services offered by A-1 Auto Transport just goes to show that this company is looking for any and every way to make sure that their customers are completely satisfied.

A-1 Auto Transport Increases Website Security And User Trust With VeriSign Trust Seal
Aptos, CA (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
A-1 Auto Transport is now offering their users ultimate virtual protection and safety by way of the “VeriSign Trust Seal”. A-1 Auto Transport has been a leading provider of car shipping services in the U.S for over 22 years, but in recent years they have truly stepped up their efforts to provide complete customer satisfaction and privacy to their users in the United States and throughout the world.
The internet can be an incredibly dangerous tool if not used carefully. There are many different viruses throughout the World Wide Web that are just waiting to infect your computer. A-1 Auto Transport recognizes this and has upped their security by signing on with Symantec, the creators of Norton Anti-Virus, to provide full protection and increase user confidence when using the A-1 Auto Transport website for car or motorcycle shipping services. You can find the VeriSign Trust Seal certification in the right-hand side of the website.
By using the technology provided by VeriSign, the A-1 Auto Transport website, and their users are now better protected to monitor and defend against any incoming malware. Malware is a broad term that is associated with pretty much any form of malicious software or program. If software or programs are created with the intent of infecting or harming a computer or spreading to other computers without the users consent, then it is considered malware.
Malware comes in a variety of forms, most of which are invisible to the user, and can do significant amounts of damage to a computer. Some of the most common forms of malware include computer viruses, spyware, and Trojan horses. These forms of malware can infect your computer, corrupting files and eliminating privacy barriers, and then spread on to others via your e-mail.
With the certification, VeriSign now does daily sweeps of the A-1 Auto Transport website to ensure that no malicious coding or programming has found its way through the firewall in an effort to protect the website and users on the A-1 Auto Transport website. This is great for their users because it allows them to know that any information that they share with A-1 Auto Transport concerning their car shipment will not be stolen or misused. VeriSign verifies the identities of all of its users to make sure that their website is a legitimate resource rather than a deceptive piece of malware. If a company has the VeriSign Trust Seal, you can feel much safer that any information you give to that company is safe. This can be a huge relief by eliminating all the usual anxiety that comes along with giving information or making purchases over the internet.
A-1 Auto Transport offers a number of online services, so it is vital that they be able to protect their users. Currently, A-1 Auto Transport is offering free quotes from the top car transport companies, and the process is as simple as it can be. Their website provides a form that requests minimal information in order to find out what services you require. Upon completion of this form, the simple click of a button will have your auto shipping experience underway.

A-1 Auto Transport Goes Green With SmartWay Transport Partnership
Aptos, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
In accordance with their goal to provide the highest quality of services while adhering to only the safest operating standards and procedures possible, A-1 Auto Transport has taken yet another step forward this week by partnering up with eco-friendly group, SmartWay Transport.
SmartWay Transport was founded in 2004 by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to promote sustainability and the use of environmentally friendly practices within the freight transport industry. By raising awareness about emerging green technologies and the benefits that come along with such innovations, SmartWay hopes to drastically reduce the levels of greenhouse gas emissions that are being produced by auto transport companies.
In an industry which accounts for about 20 percent of all energy being consumed by the transport sector, it's incredibly important that individual auto transport companies involved in freight transport be fully aware of their impact on the environment and be willing to do all within their power to reduce their carbon footprint. A-1 Auto Transport understands that and is taking the initiative to adopt and promote practices that will help to protect our environment for the future generations to come.
By teaming up with the EPA's SmartWay Transport program, A-1 Auto Transport is simply showing their dedication to responsible business practices and standards. A-1 Auto Transport has been working in the auto transport industry now for over 22 years and is constantly looking for any and all opportunities to better accommodate the needs of their customers and that which they value, including the environment.
With offices based out of Santa Cruz, California, A-1 Auto Transport greatly reflects the progressive form of thought which seems to run as a common thread throughout the entire eco-friendly city.
"We understand the importance of maintaining the world around us and know that it's our responsibility to actively seek out ways to modify our business for the better by reducing our own impact on the environment," said Joe Webster, Marketing Director of A-1 Auto Transport.
Currently, A-1 Auto Transport is listed in the SmartWay database as having a SIF (Shipper Index Factor) of 1.25, which is the highest possible rating given out by the EPA group. This score is only given to companies which are "utilizing most of the commercially available fuel saving strategies and are actively evaluating the latest emerging technologies." The partnership opportunity provided by SmartWay will only help A-1 Auto Transport to continue to address areas such as fuel consumption, the reduction of pollutant toxins, and cost-benefit analysis for going green.
A-1 Auto Transport is hoping to light a fire amongst its own affiliates and spread the light of environmental awareness which they find to be so important. By offering green solutions to their own partner companies, A-1 Auto Transport is hoping to spread the idea of conservation and limitation of wasteful practices.

Rising Gas Prices Hit Auto Transport Companies Hard
Aptos, California (PRWEB) May 09, 2011 In recent months, gas prices have been rising exponentially across the country. The current national average price per gallon is $3.54 and rising, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA). That is a 37 cent increase just since February 22nd of this year.
The reasons for the recent price increase are debatable, but one thing is for sure; nearly every industry has been affected in one way or another by these outrageous gas prices.
One industry being hit incredibly hard by these skyrocketing gas prices is the auto transport industry. The entire pricing system for auto transport relies heavily on the price of gas. Auto transport companies are usually forced to modify their car shipping rates in accordance with their costs of operation (such as fuel), in order to stay afloat.
In times of economic stability, this is usually not an issue. In times such as this though, where gas sits just 14% below the highest recorded price in our nation's history ($4.114 on July 17th, 2008), it becomes somewhat of a common practice.
However, depending on the size and quality of the company, the amount of fluctuation in service rates will be different from company to company. In order to remain competitive, larger auto transport companies will change their prices as little as possible, taking a cut in profit rather than customer satisfaction.
Companies such as A-1 Auto Transport, an industry leader for over two decades, are able to maintain a steady flow of business by cutting their profits rather than raising their prices. "We would much rather take a little hit on our end than to see our customers have to take on the burden.", said A-1 Auto Transport Marketing Director, Joe Webster.
A-1 Auto Transport holds customer satisfaction as their number one concern and knows that while gas prices will always come and go, they wish to keep their customers' repeat business. For that reason, even in tough times, A-1 Auto Transport has continued to provide only the best services for the best possible price in accordance with their focus on quality customer care.
Also, with over 22 years of experience in the auto shipping industry, A-1 Auto Transport is able to help customers avoid dealing with cost increase or hidden fees due to delivery location. For instance, although the west coast is an oil producing sector, they do not have easy access to fuel being imported to the U.S. Because of this, gas prices tend to be higher on the west coast than on the east coast.
However, A-1 Auto Transport's customer oriented system of operation ensures that these differences in fuel price from location to location do not make any difference in the price you pay for your auto transport.
Also, A-1 Auto Transport guarantees that the price settled upon when the original service contract was created will be the price you pay. Other auto transport companies, however, take big hits by making low bids months prior to the actual transport, and then realize that gas prices have risen and it's now going to cost them more to ship a vehicle. Sometimes, a company might hold onto a vehicle, waiting for gas prices to drop to what they were at the time the contract was created. A-1 Auto Transport guarantees that you will never have to go through any such hassles.
