Shipping to Redmond
A-1 Auto Transport has the answers to the most asked questions about auto transport:
Why should a vehicle only have a quarter tank of gas during transport?
Auto transport is based on the weight of a vehicle and fuel can add quite a bit of weight to an already heavy vehicle. A quarter tank of fuel is plenty to load the car onto the carrier, move it when necessary during travel and unload at the new location. During transport, drivers must stop at weight stations and if the truck has a full load of cars and is overweight, each vehicle will need to be unloaded and weighed individually. Cars that have extra weight will need to have fuel removed. This is time-consuming and can delay transport times for all vehicles on the truck.
Should I use door to door or terminal to terminal?
Once you have decided on hiring a professional to transport the vehicle, you will then need to decide whether you want to use door to door or ship via a terminal. Door to door is the fastest way to have a car shipped and is also the most convenient as the car can be picked up from your address or from a nearby location. Terminal to terminal can cost less, but it is a riskier way to ship a car. The car will need to be taken to a shipping terminal and then a carrier will pick it up at the terminal. Terminals can often be unmanned and have no lighting which could put the car at risk for vandalism or theft. Terminal to terminal is usually only recommended if the vehicle owner lives in a rural area and a truck cannot deliver to the area. For safety, it is usually best to ship door to door when possible.
How can I get my car ready for transport?
There are several things that you can do to make sure your car is ready for transport. If shipping to a new climate, make sure the car has been serviced and the antifreeze is filled. Make sure the fuel is no higher than a quarter tank and the battery is charged. Ensure that nothing is left inside the vehicle that is not attached to the car. You may be able to load some blankets or pillows in the trunk but be sure that nothing is left behind that could be stolen or cause damage during transport.
