Car Shipping Companies Near Me
Looking for auto transport companies near you in Phoenix? This metro area receives more sun than any other in the US, making it a perfect place to live and work for those who can’t stand drab weather. Phoenix is a desert city, so although the heat is dry in the summer, it’s constant and oppressive. Trying to get around without a car is not only uncomfortable, it can actually be dangerous. Instead of risking concerns like dehydration, transport your car to Phoenix with you. Check out the A-1 Auto Transport directory of area auto transport companies to find one that fits your needs.
Using Phoenix Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Phoenix car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Keep in mind that the balance on transport generally has to be paid upon delivery: You might want to keep some cash on hand for this transaction, as many transport companies don’t take credit cards or checks upon delivery of your vehicle.
- Conduct a thorough check on your vehicle when it is delivered: If you have a grievance that you feel was caused during transport, you need to say so before your vehicle is signed over to you. Otherwise, you are going to find it difficult to come back later and accuse the company of damaging your vehicle.
- Give yourself plenty of time to book transport: Most experts recommend booking at least a month or so in advance. This ensures that you get the dates you want.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Phoenix
If you’re moving a classic or luxury car around Phoenix or beyond, driving may not be the best way to do it. This is especially true if you’re using it for showroom purposes, since dust and flying objects can easily ruin its brand new look.
To maintain its appearance and condition, an enclosed carrier is necessary. Such a truck keeps the vehicle contained within it, immobile, and safe from the outside. A1 auto transport offers its most experienced drivers for such services and frequent notifications of its status and location.
Special Discounts in Phoenix
Auto transportation may not be affordable for everyone. If you’ve requested a quote and the price is not within your budget, don’t get discouraged. You may still be eligible for a special discount. Call our office today to see if you qualify.
Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Phoenix
Interstate transportation is our specialty. So, if you have a car you need to transport over longer distances, here’s the basic procedure you can follow.
Call our office today to request a quote and see if the date you have in mind for the transport is available. If you don’t have a specific date you want to ship your car on, then talk with our staff and pick one that’s advantageous.
On the pickup day, a truck and one of our drivers will arrive to ship your vehicle. Take some pictures of your car prior to handing it over and read the papers carefully before you sign them. It’s important you voice any complaint you may have as soon as possible.
Nonetheless, your car is in good hands. It’s insured throughout the trip and strapped in place, so it cannot move and get damaged.
International Shipping to/from Phoenix
Auto carriers are indispensable to shipping vehicles, especially on an international level. To move them over an ocean, a ship will be necessary.
Through our services, you won’t have to worry about finding either of them. A1 auto transport will take care of it all. This includes providing the carrier, arranging the trip via ship, passing customs, etc.
On the other hand, your responsibilities will be minimal. You’ll have to go through the necessary documents, have them ready for us, and sign a contract. Also, we’ll need you or a representative to come at the appointed place and time to send off / pick up the car.
Cheap Transportation Options in Phoenix
As with any service, the cheaper suppliers are often the most sought after and held in the highest regard. Just like a supermarket has lower prices due to its size and superior organization, so do large shipping companies have better rates thanks to their history, larger client base, and advanced transport system.
After moving cars for more than 2 decades, A1 auto transport encourages potential clients with all kinds of discounts and offers. Even if we were to lose money on a deal, as long as we can spread the word regarding the quality of our services, we’re bound to win in the long run. If you’d like a quote, use the calculator at the top of the page or the number near it.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Phoenix
While A1 auto transport takes care of your vehicle, there’s no need to worry about safety. Not only does each truck have straps that keep cars immobile and secure, but the bars surrounding them offer decent protection as well.
In case of an accident, the truck itself will deal with the blow. Since each car is fixed and surrounded beams and bars, it’s also very difficult to steal one.
If you want to take safety measures to another level, you can also request an enclosed auto carrier. The outside will be blocked completely in such a truck. Thieves and wrong doers won’t even know what’s being transported.
