Safe and Reliable Pittsburg Car Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
Remember that Pittsburg in California is spelled without the letter “h” at the end. This industrial city that grew from the coal and steel industries has been reinventing itself since 1839. From the time the initial 10,000 acres were handed over by the Mexican government to Jose Antone Mesa and Miguel Jose Garcia, Pittsburg has gone through three name changes. Col. J.D. Stevenson named it New York of the Pacific after he laid out the town.
When the fishing and canning industries boomed the town’s economy, it became New York Landing. In 1868 after the discovery of coal in its hills, Black Diamond became the town’s new name. In 1911, the community voted to name their town, Pittsburg, after the same Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, both cities being industrial centers on opposite coasts of the country.

International Shipping to/from Pittsburg
Due to our own internal regulations, all drivers must take photos of the vehicle they’re shipping before and after the shipment. If you’d like to do the same, it’s best you do it before our arrival to minimize the time used on this process. Make sure you have time stamps on the photos.
Our driver will hand you the correct documents to sign, and you’ll need to provide some papers necessary for us to legally ship your car. These details will be explained further over the phone. While calling us, you can ask for a price estimate that includes any discount you’re entitled to.
Cheap Transportation Options in Pittsburg
The faster ways to transport automobiles may be counterproductive for those trying to save money. For example, planes are extremely fast, but they can cost a lot to use. Unless you can afford the price, it's not advisable.
By using cheaper alternatives, like ships and auto carriers, you'll obtain the same result. It will take longer, especially if you're going abroad and ships must be employed, but the much better cost is worth it.
If you'd like an accurate quote to compare prices with other companies, we recommend you call our staff instead of using the online form. After our team knows your situation, they will be able to give a more accurate estimate, sometimes 15% lower than what you'd normally receive.
