Safe And Reliable Oakland Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

This is the busiest port in the San Francisco Bay and the 8th largest city in the state. Oakland is part of the San Francisco metro area and is home to almost 400,000 people. It is actually also the 47th largest city in the country and is in Alameda County. It is a major transport and trade hub and comprises much of the East Bay region. It is directly across the bay from San Francisco. The weather here is very mild, with about 260 days of sun annually. The city is surrounded by a number of natural areas that promote swimming, fishing, hiking and more, for those looking to get out of the city and commune with nature.

Oakland

There are more than 50 neighborhoods within the city limits, and each has its own unique character. In fact, to that effect, Oakland was named in 2011 as number 10 on a list of the most walkable cities in the country. It is also one of the most diverse cities in the country. Additionally, Port of Oakland is the 5th busiest port in the country in terms of the cargo that moves through it daily. There are almost a quarter million jobs related to the cargo that moves through the Port of Oakland. Additionally, the arts scene is a vibrant one, with the highest volume of artists per capita in the entire country.

The benefits of California sunshine without the hefty price tag are exactly what you can expect in Oakland.

Using Oakland Vehicle Transport Companies

When you are looking to book Oakland car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:

  • Ask about the California-Florida route: This is the cheapest route for transport companies to take, in part because of the lower transport costs associated with it. Ask about this route when booking cross-country transportation services to see if you can get a much lower rate for transporting your vehicle.
  • Remove any items on the exterior of your vehicle: If you have wheel covers, tool boxes and the like, then you should definitely remove them ahead of transport. This ensures that they won’t be damaged or lost during the process.
  • Inform your insurance company of your plans to have your vehicle transported: This way, if something goes wrong during the process and you find you need to file a claim, your insurance company will have the pertinent information about the transport company and where your vehicle was traveling to and from.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Oakland

One of our carriers is always near Oakland in case of an auto shipping request. We usually handle long distance requests, so regardless of the distance, you’re in good hands.

To make an appointment, the fastest way is to call us through the number mentioned at the top of the page. It takes just a few minutes, and afterwards all you have to do is show up at the agreed upon pickup place to give us your car. You can also send a friend or family member in your stead, but they’ll need a Power of Attorney to sign the papers.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Oakland

Shipping a classic or a luxury car to or from Oakland is best done with an enclosed truck. Such a carrier ups the security level during transport by hiding the car within it. This way, not only is the automobile protected from flying objects of any kind, but passing strangers won’t even know it’s there. This way, you’ll avoid malicious acts or theft.

A1 auto transport takes full responsibility for the safe shipping of your car. We offer an insurance policy for every transport, and the limit for it is higher when an enclosed carrier is used. Also, you can speak to the driver when he arrives if you have any misunderstandings. He will be staying in touch, letting you know where he and the car are located during the trip.

Special Discounts in Oakland

Our company’s services include special discounts meant to help those whose incomes do not permit paying the normal fees. They’re available to students, seniors, and military people. If you don’t qualify, you can look into our seasonal offerings instead. Call our team for more information.

International Shipping to/from Oakland

A1 auto transport cannot help you move abroad, but we can help move your car. Auto transportation is particularly difficult when done on an international level. Even if you try to drive it on your own, you'll still have to deal with ports and customs. Also, the longer the journey, the more costly it will be.

Ideally, you should take a plane to your new home while movers and A1 auto transport ship your belongings. You won’t have to pay that much more for our services compared to all the fuel and hotel bills you would have accumulated. We will also ensure your car is safe. It will pass the border fast and safely without complications and delays.

Cheap Transportation Options in Oakland

Among the shipping methods available on the market currently, a few stand out as cheaper than the rest:

  • Open carrier auto transportation. By moving up to a dozen cars at a time, owners of such trucks can afford to ask for low rates on their jobs. The price of the operation is split between every client, so the profit margin is higher.
  • Trains. Similar to open carriers, trains can move numerous automobiles at a time. However, it can be hard to find one capable of carrying cars between the 2 points you're interested in. Also, if the train isn't designed for shipping cars specifically, it can be hard and expensive to use.
  • Ships. When an ocean must be crossed, nothing beats a ship for transportation. With the RoRo method, they're a very cheap option.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Oakland

If you're worried about your car's safety, even though it will be transported on a platform on which it will be strapped and immobile, then you're probably looking for an even higher level of security.

In this case, we recommend air freight or enclosed auto carriers. Planes are very safe shipping tools, but not many can afford them, especially when the cargo is as large as a vehicle. Enclosed trucks are the next best option if you're moving your car within the same land mass.

Your automobile won't be affected by flying objects, bad weather, or birds. It will be kept out of the public’s eyes, so nobody will be tempted to steal or vandalize it. Furthermore, it will spend less time on the road, and the insurance policy that comes with one is substantial.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
