Services offered in Palos Verdes Estates
A-1 Auto Transport offers a variety of international shipping options to help you export or import your vehicle:
- Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) is the commonly used standard. It uses a painless loading and unloading process where the vehicles are driven (rolled) on the ship.
- Containerized shipping offers extra protection to high-end vehicles while in transit. You may also choose the option to move personal and household belongings when emigrating.
- Shipping a vehicle by plane is not the cheapest option, even though it offers the shortest waiting period. It is highly practical when shipping a high-end car for special events.
When you have a car that you need to move without spending a lot of money on it, you can choose open-air shipping. We have trucks that can help to drop your burden when moving multiple vehicles as well as offer the most affordable rates.
Many of our customers who want to move luxury and specialty vehicles will have a better experience using enclosed transport. As the name implies, our trucks give covered protection from the elements and other roadside hazards. Shipping cars to or from Palos Verdes Estates using the option might involve a slightly higher budget.
We can send the vehicle directly to your residence or drop it off at the nearest shipping terminal across the state.

How to prepare a car for shipping
You can get a correct inspection simply by making sure that you get the vehicle cleaned up in advance. Prepare a record of the pre-existing chips, dents, and scratches. Try to take dated photographs of all sides.
Transporters will not accept the vehicles loaded with personal and household goods because of insurance and safety reasons. Consider taking out the aftermarket accessories installed in the car (DVD players, GPS, radar detectors, speakers).
Do not leave the loose parts on the exterior exposed to damage. Use a protective cover and have the detachable ones removed. Custom spoilers, roof racks, fog lights, and other additions should not travel as part of the vehicle.
Run down the gas tank to about a quarter-full. Too much fuel may add an extra load on your vehicle, which could complicate things at the transit checkpoints. Try not to leave it empty unless you want to ship a non-running car.
Maintenance checks help to keep the car in running shape, which stops the cost to ship from ballooning. Check the engine oil and other fluid levels in the vehicle to top them off when insufficient. Make sure that you have a fully charged battery and well-inflated tires.
Write a list of the mechanical problems and special operations needed to run the car and share it with the driver. Keep the alarm system disabled and deactivate any toll tags and parking passes left in the car. The driver needs to have a set of keys to the car before sending it along the trip.
