When it comes to going to a university, there are many options all across the globe in multiple countries. Some students travel far just to further their education. Students also do study abroad programs that some universities have. This allows students to explore and appreciate other cultures, learn new languages, and gain a greater understanding of the world. The number of students who have moved overseas anywhere on the globe is about 5.3 million (“International Students” 2020). However, there can be challenges involved with moving from a place you call home to moving to a whole other country that’s basically a stranger.

 It can be scary at times. However, when it comes to the services A-1 Auto Transport has, it makes the move easier and can make the transition better as well. Typically, students who move internationally come from the countries China, South Korea, United States, India, France, and many others, While some do decide to dorm on campus, some decide to get their own apartment for the years that they are here. That can eliminate having to dorm with roommates and now being able to just worry about yourself. Moving completely into an apartment is simple with the services that A-1 Auto Transport has.

 When it comes to moving overseas, there are two options that the company has which is moving from port to port or from door to door. The port to port option is when the mover is responsible to take the things to the port and then from the port, take it to their new home. With the door to door option, everything from the previous home is moved right to the doorstep of the new home. This makes it especially easy for a college student when it is just that person alone and no one else to help them. This service also allows the movement of cars and other valuables that makes a place feel like home. Some people are most comfortable with driving their own cars and not having to get used to a whole different car. It is possible to bring the car overseas in one of three ways:

 with a Ro/Ro ship, a container or air freight. With college students, the best option would be the Ro/Ro ship as the cost is cheaper compared to the other two options. This way of transportation ensures that the car is transported to the destination safely with no issues. Being able to drive a comfortable and well-known car can make the transfer to a new country easier. Not only does a car make the transfer easier, but also having all of your valuables and things that make a place a home can do this as well. It is easy for students to get homesick being away for years at a time. Of course, there are breaks in between where students can go back home, but at some point, they are going to have to come back.

 Having those valuables can make students less homesick. A-1 Auto Transport makes sure that those valuables get to their destination safely and with no trouble. Although there is so much good that comes with moving overseas and how simple this company makes the move, cost is the biggest part of it all. Compared to other moving companies that do international moves, they are the most affordable. The cost for moving a 2 bedroom home/apartment from Las Vegas to Japan is at most $6,300. However, if the student is moving by themselves and has only their bedroom to move from with furniture, the cost can easily be less than that. For college students, this move is very affordable. Also, it makes it to where students don’t have to start completely over.

 They can bring their life with them without having to start a new one. Not only that, but the time it takes to fully move from country to country with the company is not long at all. Typically, the amount of time it takes for people to move internationally is around fifty-one days which is about seven weeks and a half (“How Long Does It Take to Move Internationally?” 2015). However, the time it takes for A-1 Auto Transport to do the same move internationally is around four to six weeks. So overall, things can be moved from the old home to the new one in good time which is perfect for students. Students who move away from their homes and families are sometimes clueless of what to do next.

 They may come into the country that they moved to not knowing what to do next such as getting a job and how to rent a home for themselves. Apart from the transporting services that A-1 Auto Transport has, they also give great detail in how to find these things. Some countries are harder to find jobs in than others. The company makes sure to mention these things and really help the customers get acquainted wherever destination they are going. Each year, it seems that the number of students who move overseas for studying is going up.

 From 2000 to 2017, the number of students who moved overseas for school went up by 2 million students (“International Students” 2020). Students tend to worry about moving far away and the process that comes with it. However, with A-1 Auto Transport, they make the move for students very easy. Students are able to get their things dropped off to their new home which makes for easy movement. Students can get their car or their valuables brought with them so that their new home really feels like home and they feel comfortable in a new place. The service is also affordable for college students. With more students constantly studying overseas, this service really makes everything easy for the student and their families. Their family can relax knowing that their children are in good hands when it comes to moving.

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!
