What Is The Purpose Of

A-1 Auto Transport began serving the public 30 years ago and we have delivered quality auto transport services to our customers from coast to coast as well as internationally ever since. Our primary goal with our website is to ensure that vehicle owners have accurate information about auto transport, so they will know what to expect when they need to have a car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, boat, heavy machinery or other freight shipped.

We want to let customers know who the brokers are and who the carriers are in this industry, so they can make informed decisions on how to go about relocating their vehicle safely, and at a rate that is reasonable. In order to do this, we strive to have the most up to date information on pricing, transit times and even local information for areas that customers need to ship to or from.

Need to know where the local DMV is located or where you can apply for a driver’s license? We want to make sure you have that information at your fingertips, so you won’t need to look any further than our website.


In business, it is common to form trusted partnerships with other companies to ensure that customers have access to the highest quality services available. This is true in many industries and it holds true with A-1 Auto Transport as well. We refer our website users to our partners that we have worked with for many years and we assure you that they are all pre-screened and licensed and bonded as required by our high standards. These are companies that have been highly reviewed, are in good standing with us and have shown they have good business practices.

We are provided a fee by these companies for referring business to them, yet earning that fee is not our top priority. To maintain our trusted name in the industry however, we will forego a fee if it means referring someone to a company that we would not hire for service ourselves. Our name is trusted worldwide, and we will never do anything to mar that bond we have with the public. 


We guarantee the best price for the auto transport services that our customers schedule. This does not always mean it will be an extremely low price and while we understand that many brokers will offer lower rates when they give an initial quote, we also understand that those who try to pull customers in with an unrealistically low price will need to add more to the price later.

This is often due to brokers quoting very low rates, so they can pull in a customer, but then they fail to find a driver who will work for the lower rate and they will need to have the customer pay more. This is not an honest practice and it is not one that we will participate in.

Purpose Of This Website

When we quote rates, we have already taken the time to know what the rates truly are, and we quote accordingly so our customers know what they will pay. We don’t like surprises and we never want to surprise our customers with an extra cost once their transport is booked.

The price we quote for car shipping will be based on the type of vehicle you have, the height and weight of the vehicle, the distance and the route that will be taken and the season. During the winter you might find that some routes, such as Minneapolis to Miami, will cost more than they would cost during the summer. This is because during the winter seasonal travelers called snowbirds tend to head to warmer climates and it means that carriers are busy with snowbird transport. When winter is ending and there are fewer moves to the south, auto transport rates will often decrease.

Broker or Carrier?

It is not always easy to tell if a company is a broker or a carrier as some are just not upfront about the services they provide, and they won’t tell you that they are brokering the transport for others. We believe in transparency and when we schedule auto transport with a partner company, we will let you know.

Carriers rely on brokers to send business their way and all too often, a carrier is too busy to answer a phone or give a quote when someone needs one. A broker simply plays as a middleman between the customer and the carrier to ensure that people can find a quality carrier for a reasonable price. It is a winning situation for a customer to contact a broker company to help them find a carrier as brokers will often have access to hundreds of carriers and can find one at a lower price than a customer might find on their own.

Here at A-1 Auto Transport, we broker many of the services we offer, and as we have stated before, we partner with many trustworthy carriers nationwide to be able to do this for our customers, but we are also a carrier company and we have our own fleet of carriers, so we can transport vehicles on our own as well. This means that when we book service for our customers, it will not take as long to find a carrier as it would take other brokers because we have our own fleet of carriers to use. This is a great benefit for our customers.

What We Transport

We help transport a variety of motor vehicles including:

Additionally, we can help transport vehicles, household goods and heavy machinery to all 50 states of the United States and to more than 200 countries globally.

Why We Do What We Do

A-1 Auto Transport has been in the car shipping industry for nearly 30 years and we have a solid team of dedicated auto transport professionals who take pride in this company and what we do for our customers. Over these last 30 years we have worked hard to build a trusted reputation with our customers and the communities we serve by providing the best in auto transport, logistics, tracking services and personal communication with those we serve.

One of our biggest goals besides helping our customers find quality auto transport services at reasonable rates is to make sure that our they have a full understanding of how the auto transport industry works. Of course, we want you to choose to book your transport with one of our trusted partners, but even more, we want you to know how everything works from the inside out.

When we started in the late 1980’s as a small auto towing company, we had one truck to handle emergency towing and roadside services. Since those days, we expanded to a fleet of 50 carriers by 1995 and in 1998, we moved into the brokerage side of auto transport as well. Today, we not only transport vehicles with our own fleet of carriers, but we also secure auto transport for other carriers and we can now ship to more than 200 countries worldwide.

The purpose of is to secure reliable auto transport services at an affordable rate to our customers across the United States and around the world.

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!
