Vehicle shipping inspection before and after delivery

It is common practice for auto movers to inspect your car before they take it off your hands. Any pre-existing damage should be jotted down to the last scratch and dent. This is a very sensitive process that warrants your physical presence or that of a trusted representative. Here at A-1 auto transport, we encourage our clients to take detailed photos from every angle just before departure. You also ought to pen down the odometer reading too.

Upon delivery of the vehicle, reconcile your findings with the photos taken. If there are any dents, scratches or a significant rise in the odometer reading you have it good authority to file an insurance claim.

Preparing for transport

Shipping cars to or from the port of Tacoma calls for adequate preparation. For your vehicle to be deemed safe and operable for loading and discharge, the following should be met:

  • Your tank should be no more than half and no less than quarter. This minimizes any unwarranted gas leaks while still leaving enough gas for loading on a Ro-Ro vessel.
  • Removal of all exterior add-ons such as spare tyres, car covers, and grills.
  • Deep cleaning of the interior and exterior of the car to get rid of any plants and insects. This requirement was set by the USDA.

In addition to this, you ought to adequately prepare your car for its new destination. This may range anywhere from investing in snow tyres to purchasing an engine coolant depending on the weather of the destination.

Vehicles transport options

You are accorded with two main modes of shipment when shipping cars to or from Port of Tacoma: Ro-Ro and Container. The latter is useful for shipping exotic cars while the former is a cheaper alternative that fits the bill for all other scenarios.

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!
