Shipping Cars To or From Port of Charleston

South Carolina isn’t left behind from all other sea states on the East coast. It is home to one of the busiest and heavy-tonnage handling ports in the US - the port of Charleston. The port has been in existence since 1942, under the management and ownership of the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA). The entire port is made of five public terminals whose facilities span over three municipalities; Mount Pleasant, Charleston, and North Charleston.

Statistical Records

The Port of Charleston is one of the busiest ports in the US, ranked 8th by cargo value by 2012. In terms of total trade in tonnage, it is ranked 34th overall in foreign imports and exports together with domestic trading. It is currently expanding its facilities to enable it to handle more cargo and to accommodate a larger number of cargo vessels. Also, a next-gen harbor deepening project is underway to increase the draft depth from 45 feet to about 70feet. This will enable it to accommodate heavier and larger cargo vessels that carry heavier loads like military tanks etc.

Services we offer through the Port of Charleston

The port as it is currently, handling such high tonnage, is ideal for shipping cars to or from Port of Charleston. The port is equipped with facilities to handle heavy tonnage from vehicles, including normal sedan cars, sports cars, luxury vehicles, SUVs, ATVs, RVs, buses, trailer trucks, motorcycles, and even boats of all shapes and sizes. We can even ship yachts through this port.

The port has both mobile harbor cranes and heavy tonnage cranes to allow for containerized car shipping. This type of shipping involves driving several vehicles into an enormous enclosed container which is then loaded onto the cargo ship. Moreover, the ro-ro equipment present on the dock allows for roll-on/roll-off car shipping. In this shipping method, the vehicles are driven onto the cargo vessel for transportation (rolled on). Upon arrival at the destination, the vehicles are then driven off (rolled off) the cargo ship. While the containerized method offers extra protection from the external factors like weather and small stones, the ro-ro method allows for mass transportation of several hundred cars at one go, proving to be a pocket-friendly way of shipping cars to or from Port of Charleston.

Satisfied Customers

“My experience using A1 Auto Transport went well. I had to take my car from New York to South Carolina. I thought of several options, even driving it myself, but the cost and convenience of auto transport won me over. I called A1 after reading some reviews, and it was a good choice. Joe detailed the entire process and gave me several cost and transportation options. He answered every question which convinced me he wasn’t some amateur. Since I had to be in South Carolina by the 30th, I drove part of the way and left his team to handle the rest. They let me know when the car will arrive 24 hours prior, and it arrived in great condition. The stuff I left in it was still there.”

“Thank you Joe and the A1 Auto Transport team! It was a satisfying, honest and professional experience. The car was picked up on time and delivered to South Carolina as promised. They didn’t charge extra either. Joe made sure I was informed throughout the transport and explained the entire process, so I knew what to expect. The driver brought the car to my home, encouraged me to inspect it, and asked for payment only after. He called a day before to let me know he’d arrive, and also a couple hours earlier, so I’d be prepared. I had no problem with the drop off location, since it was in front of my home. I didn’t have to pay a deposit until the truck actually picked up my car. I was also informed of it beforehand. I’ve heard stories of companies asking for a deposit before picking your car, so they may leave with your money without ever showing up. Not the case with A1. I received another call from Joe after receiving my car to ask if I was satisfied with the service. Yes, yes and yes!! Thank you Joe for an awesome delivery!”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“How to start? A1 Auto Transport is a blessing! Joe is a gentleman! A couple days ago, I was getting ready to move to Wyoming. I looked everywhere for a good auto transport company, but their reviews were just terrible. It felt like I was going nowhere and would be stuck driving the car myself or having to sell it. Finally and thankfully, I came across A1 Auto Transport. Most reviews were very positive, so I took a chance on them. Joe spent half an hour explaining the whole shipping process, to the point where I truly understood what to expect and what I needed to do. He covered the legal aspects and the quotes, and whenever I didn’t understand something, he took the time to explain and clarify it. On a Wednesday, the truck arrived at a location nearby (where it would fit), and I sent my car on its way. The driver inspected it and took several photographs. He made it feel like standard procedure, so I simply observed. He took note of the eventual dents and scratches, in case I’d try to sue the company for damages he didn’t cause (not that I planned to). The time estimate for my vehicle’s arrival was 7 to 10 days. It arrived on the 8th in the exact same condition it left. Thank you A1 Auto Transport for a job well done! You’ve kept your promise, and I couldn’t be happier. If anybody I know ever needs to ship a car, I’ll refer you immediately, and I hope this review helps you get many more clients.”

“Hi again, Very satisfied with service with ai I used the tracking system every day the most impressed thing was my agent Nataly when I had a question yes had the answer I didn't worry about any thing after talking with Nataly. I will be glad to tell others about A1 and Nataly! Thanks so much!”
