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 A1AutoTransport.com is to secure reliable auto transport services at an affordable rate to our customers across the United States and around the world.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“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!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
