The process of shipping cars to or from Port of Kalama
The process is straight forward when working with professional car shippers. At A-1 Auto Transport we provide shipping services via the port. We provide free quotes via phone or an online form. We need the following information to provide you with a quote;
- The current location of the vehicle. Is it at the port, at a location in the US or in an overseas country? We use this information to determine the distance and the services required. For example, if the car is in an inland location in the US you will need it transported to the port via open trucks or enclosed trucks. Note that we provide international moving services. So, if you are transporting your car to move to an overseas country, you can hire us to complete the whole moving process.
- Your preferred international shipping method. This process involves international shipping unless the vehicle is at the port headed for a location in the US. The international shipping methods for cars are container shipping and RORO shipping. Depending on the shipping route and distance, the shipping duration ranges from a week up to several months. So, you should contact us early so that we can schedule the shipping on dates most convenient to you.
- Type of vehicle. On the online form, we require you to provide the vehicle brand, model, and year of manufacture. This information helps us to determine the size of the vehicle and its weight. For RORO shipping, the size affects the cost, while for container shipping, the weight affects the cost.
If you are content with the quoted price, contact us so that we can schedule the service. We will then get back to you with a pickup date and delivery timeframe.
In the case of international shipping, you need to prepare your car. Before pickup;
- Check that the car is operational
- Clean the car
- Check for fluid and fuel leaks and fix them
- Make sure that the gas tank is less than a quarter full
- Disable the alarm and remove the antennae
