Not Just a Car

Submitted by Kristina Emery Johnson on 02/09/2020

Imagine you’re on your way to work. It’s 6:47 am and you’re running late. You’ve had a rough morning, the alarm didn’t go off, you couldn’t find clean pants and you discovered you were out of hair gel. You almost can’t believe it, but somehow finally you made it to the car. You’re on the road. You’ve got your steaming coffee in the cup holder, filling the car with your favorite morning perfume. The radio buzzes with news and morning traffic, occasionally playing a tune. The sun is just peeking out from the horizon, its rays glistening like spindles of spider silk. The sky is a masterpiece of blending hues of orange, blue and yellow. It’s a beautiful day, but something just isn’t right.

Something definitely isn’t right. It’s the whole morning. How could the alarm not go off?!? Why do you have to work so EARLY!?! And what’s this? …UGH!! It’s another one of those auto haulers. They can’t possibly be driving this early. Their whole job is to just block traffic isn’t it? I guess they also insist on driving in the left lane don’t they? Nonetheless, you finally make it to work, with minutes to spare. You sit in your office typing away on the keyboard. The entire morning ordeal-including that outrageous auto hauler- is long forgotten.

This experience is not uncommon among commuters. Seeing an auto hauler on the road often gives drivers a twinge of agitation, and that’s not surprising. There’s a lot to dislike about auto-haulers whether it’s the bulkiness, S-L-O-W speeds, or even the lane space they take up. Nonetheless, when it’s really put into perspective auto haulers, and the people who operate them, are doing a valuable job. It’s easy to think auto haulers simply transport cars, but a car is not just a car. A car it is a huge investment; it could even be somebody’s most expensive possession. A car means freedom. Freedom to go on a road trip, to go out to a restaurant or even to go to work.

A car is even a reflection of people’s lives and personalities. The colors, the bumper stickers and even the memories they create are all unique to their owners. Autohaulers work diligently to protect and expand each of these aspects of cars. Auto transport companies understand cars are a major investment; therefore, they have precise precautions in place to protect people’s cars. For instance, companies offer covered car shipping services. These protect cars from damage due to weather, rocks or any other debris on the roads.

There are even different types of enclosures. Single enclosed car trailers are the most protective as each car is stored in its own personal trailer. On the other hand, multi-car enclosed trailers allow cars to be stacked within a trailer, while maintaining optimum levels of protection. This feature ensures cars arrive in the same condition they were shipped in. Not only are auto hauler trucks designed to keep cars safe, auto hauler drivers are also trained to keep cars protected. Drivers steer clear of construction zones and even bad weather conditions.

They know to drive cautiously, following the speed limits and ensuring their stops are smooth. Of course, all of these valuable features may not result in the fastest or most compact car, but for auto haulers, protecting people’s investment takes priority. Not only do auto transport companies understand and value the worth of a car, they expand on the freedoms that come with owning one. Owning a car means getting to feel the fresh breeze dancing through your hair as you cruise on the highway. It means forgetting about traffic jams while rocking out to your favorite music. Most importantly, a car means having the freedom to travel an entire continent at your fingertips.

Auto transport companies diligently protect this freedom that comes with owning a car. They offer services that transport cars almost anywhere in the world. For instance, this may be moving a car domestically. This allows people to prevent the wear and tear of driving long distances. Yet it still means having the comfort of exploring a new location in a familiar car. Auto transport companies even offer international transport. This involves a combination of services including use of auto haulers, boats or even airplanes. This gives freedom of cars a whole new meaning. With this service people can take their cars to explore anywhere in the world. They can discover beautiful new places and create memories at exotic locations. Then, they can pack up, ship their car, and discover even more life changing experiences.

This even gives people the freedom to relocate without the financial burden of purchasing a new car. Car transport industries of even farther than expanding on the freedoms a car provides; they personalize the entire car transport experience. Cars are a reflection of people’s lives and personalities. A middle class suburban mother likely wouldn’t be seen driving an SRT viper on her weekly trip to the grocery store. On the other hand, a young bachelor probably wouldn’t purchase a huge SUV. Nonetheless, it is more than just the types of cars people buy that make them so unique. It is the bumper stickers, belongings and even memories that are stored in a car that make it so personal to each individual.

Car transport industries care about the personal aspects of a car. For car collectors, they offer classic and antique car transportation. This may even include GPS tracking, shift resistant containers and air cushioned suspension. These give people comfort, knowing their special collectibles are in good hands. For motorcyclists, car transport companies also offer personalized services. This may include use of special containers or insurance coverage. For each service there are even individualized pricing options.

Some may opt for more expensive, luxury transport while others may select more inexpensive options. Car transport companies personalize the entire experience for each individual and their car. Given these points it’s clear that car transport companies care for more than just cars. They are involved in protecting hefty financial investments, broadening freedoms while keeping the entire experience unique and individualized. So, the next time you see an auto hauler trudging along, don’t get agitated and speed off. They have a valuable job and it’s not just transporting cars.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.
