Using Odessa, Texas Vehicle Transport Companies
In this section, we’ll take a look at the options you have when you need to have your car moved from one location to another, including paying someone to drive it for you, doing it yourself and hiring an auto shipper.
Drive Away Services - Drive away services have become popular of late, largely because of the affordability. The way these services work is that you hire a company that assigns someone to drive your car from its current location to where you need it. In comparison to standard auto transport (see hiring a pro, below), drive away services can be more cost effective, but there is more risk built into the service. First, there’s the issue of trusting a stranger to move drive your vehicle, especially if you need long distance transport. While drive away services generally do a pretty good job of doing background checks on their drivers, some companies are more thorough than others. The other major drawback is that you’re still putting a lot of miles on the odometer and risking potential mechanical issues down the line, or worse yet, when it’s being driven.
Driving It Yourself - The do-it-yourself method is often seen as a money saver when it comes to moving your car. After all, cars are designed to be driven and it makes sense to hop behind the wheel and drive it where you need to go. There are, however, a few reasons why it doesn’t make sense past a certain distance. As mentioned with drive away services, your vehicle still gets a lot of miles put on it in a short period of time, which is a recipe for malfunction. The other factor to consider is your own time. Driving your car over a long distance can sometimes mean significant missed time from work, not to mention gas, food and lodging costs that you’ll incur along the way.

Hiring A Pro - When you hire an auto transport company to move your vehicle, many of the concerns mentioned in the above two methods disappear. There’s no need to worry about putting unnecessary miles on your car or taking time off work to drive it yourself - the shipper takes care of all that. While driving away services are getting more oversight than they have in the past, they’re still not as tightly regulated as the cargo transport industry. Any auto carrier must provide licensing and insurance information to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in order to have operating authority to move vehicles.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Odessa
Auto carriers have a stable flat platform on which vehicles are driven on/off. Once in position, each car is strapped, so it won’t move during the long distance drive.
Our company provides its services in the Odessa area and in many other cities in the US. It’s quite likely that we’ll be able to ship your car regardless of the other city involved in the transport.
Details, such as the price and the type of transport, are to be discussed with our personnel. They are qualified to guide you, answer questions, and arrange a package most appropriate for the situation.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Odessa
If you’re looking for the best conditions for your luxury or classic car during transport, then an enclosed auto carrier will be it. Getting a plane to ship your car is almost impossible, and even if you do succeed, it will cost you a fortune.
Instead, an enclosed carrier can do the same job, just as safely, though a bit slower. However, unlike a plane that’s limited to traveling from one airport to another, enclosed trucks can deliver your car right at your doorsteps, regardless of where you live.
Special Discounts in Odessa
A1 auto transport is thankful to any customer that ships with us, and we are doubly happy when you decided to ship 2 or more cars at a time. Whenever you do so, we'll reward you with a multi car special deal.
Whenever a new client comes to us, we give him/her a first timer discount. This way, we hope to relieve some of the pressure auto shipping for the first time involves. If you've worked with other companies in the past, this offer will still apply (as long as you're a new customer to us).
Past clients are encouraged to use our seasonal and our snowbird discounts to the fullest. They're the easiest way to lower shipping costs. We also offer special deals to seniors, to military personnel, and to students. If you meet one of these criteria, let us know.
International Shipping to/from Odessa
The sooner you request our support with your shipment, the sooner we can start. You'll be free to think of how you'll move abroad while we worry about your car. Our team handles a lot of international projects each year, so we’ll know how to proceed.
We'll deliver your vehicle safely in the quickest manner possible. Whether we ship it with an open or an enclosed truck, with a plane or with a ship, is up to your choice. Our staff will tell you the pros and cons, so you'll be able to make the best decision.
Cheap Transportation Options in Odessa
With A1 auto transport’s support, feats such as shipping an automobile at less than what driving it to the destination would cost, are possible. Not only do we offer terminal to terminal services and open carriers, but you can easily reduce the expenditure with one or more of our discounts.
Driving a car inevitably adds mileage, risks of accidents, delays and many other problems into the shipping equation. However, when working with us, the price we give you is the price you pay, and any circumstantial problems are our solely our concern. You’ll even be protected by an insurance policy during the project.
