Mode of Shipments

Shipping cars to or from Port of Chicago is done in one of two ways; Roll on Roll off (Ro Ro) or Container shipping. Ro-Ro is the standard carrier method where your car is loaded and unloaded off the shipping vessel by simply driving it. As a result, Ro-Ro is lowly priced and is what most clients opt for when shipping standard cars.

When shipping luxury cars that demand added protection, container is a more fitting option. This is an enclosed carrier method that involves securing and bracing your car inside a 20 ft. container before setting sail. While you may have to pay a bit more than you would for Ro-Ro, your car will be safe from harsh weather elements that could end up marginally devaluing your automobile.

Custom requirements

You will be required to have the following documents for the US customs to clear your vehicle for shipping at the port of Chicago

  • Bill of lading. This is a legal document between you and your auto shipper detailing the make and model of your car, the address of your chosen auto shipper, and the year your vehicle was manufactured.
  • A fully completed form HS-7 given by NHTSA.
  • A form of photo identification like your passport/visa.
  • Proof of vehicle ownership, e.g. bill of sale.

Port charges

After your vehicle safely arrives at the port of Chicago, it will be received by the port’s personnel and you will be charged for this service. You will also incur costs of clearing your vehicle with the border services and US customs. All the aforementioned costs are often included in the auto shipper’s quotation if you need a comprehensive breakdown.

Additional port requirements

Your undercarriage should be thoroughly cleaned pursuant to stipulation set by US Department of Agriculture. This is a safety measure meant to curb the transportation of dangerous pests in and out of the Windy City.

It’s only prudent that you rid your car of any personal belongings seeing as you run the risk of succumbing to theft or damage. What’s more, most shippers will not receive a car that holds personal belongings. Keep in mind that the entire contents of your vehicle ought to be declared to customs on entry so the fewer the vehicle contents, the faster the process.

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!
