Using Oceanside Vehicle Transport Companies
- Military Discounts - Relocating is often a part of life for members of the military and their families so shipping a car is something they may need to consider at some point. Many companies, like A-1 Auto Transport and some of those mentioned in the directory below, will offer discounts to current and retired members of the military. Some car shippers may offer a similar discount, but not advertise it as prominently. If you are a member of either the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, make sure you ask the company you’re considering if they offer a discount.
- Seasonal Specials - There are also discounts available for shipping a vehicle during a certain time of year. Many auto shippers will offer summer specials in order to attract customers who may be seasonal vacationers or traveling to another country for the summer. Similarly, snowbirds traveling from the East Coast and Midwest are often extended a discounted rate from car carriers during the winter months, especially if auto transport is booked both ways in advance.
- Researching Companies - While a company website is a great place to get general information about an auto shipper, you should look into some of the official records as well. Using this resource from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, you can look up companies by name, USDOT number, or do a search for car shippers in a certain state or country. With a quick search, you can find out about insurance coverage, operating authority and if they have a Doing-Business-As name.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Oceanside
One of the main reasons people use auto transport services to move cars over long distances is the mileage they save by doing so.
The price of using an auto transport company compared to driving it yourself is relatively the same. However, the damage caused by a long distance drive can cost you quite a lot in repairs.
The extra mileage decreases the car’s sale value and shortens its lifespan. Even if problems don’t appear during the trip, the chances of something breaking down in the future increases significantly.
A1 Auto Transport can ship your car throughout the US, regardless of your current and/or new location. To use our services, get in contact through the phone number posted at the top of our website.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Oceanside
Auto shipping services are so safe that most luxury and classic cars are transported this way. When using an enclosed trailer, not only is your car protected from the damage a long drive would bring it, but it’s also safe from outside threats. The car is basically kept in a moving garage, so not even a bird can land on it.
In the rare event the truck has a collision with another vehicle and your car gets damaged, you can recover the equivalent in dollars through the insurance policy attached to each transport. Enclosed carriers have a much higher insurance limit, so even in the case of a large accident, you’ll still recover your money.

Working in the military is challenging enough, so A1 auto transport would like to make at least the transition from one base to another easier. For this reason, we've prepared a military discount and several other you may be able to use.
Transporting more than one car at a time entitles you to a multi car discount. Special considerations are given to first time shippers, with a price reduction reserved solely for them.
