What Makes An Auto Transport Company Reliable?

What Makes An Auto Transport Company Reliable?
What Makes An Auto Transport Company Reliable?

At A-1 Auto Transport, we take our commitment to our customers seriously and have since the day we started more than 25 years ago. Our business was built on the pillars of honest communication with our customers and straightforward pricing. Here are some of the ways in which we have distinguished ourselves from some of the other less-than-dependable auto shippers.

Customer Focus

One of the complaints we hear most often from customers is frustration about lack of clear communication from auto transport companies. We’ve taken a hands-on approach to meeting the needs of our clients and work to do everything in our power to provide an affordable, efficient auto moving experience you can trust.

Performance History

Performance history goes hand in hand with customer focus since it directly reflects the overall experience of using a particular company. Two of the main components to look for when searching for reliable transport companies are safety record and customer satisfaction. This information isn’t always easy to find online, but an honest company should be happy to share the information with you.

Want to learn more about our reliable auto transport services? Call us today at 1-800-452-2880 or fill out the online form for an instant price quote!

 Proper Licensing

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates the transport industry and has resources available for making sure a company is properly licensed to perform auto transport services. Businesses that offer these services must have a U.S. Department of Transportation number, or U.S. DOT#, which is required of companies in most, but not all, states.

* The following states do not require a U.S. DOT#: California, Nevada, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Illinois, Virginia, Delaware, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.

Accurate Quotes

Most customers start their search by collecting vehicle shipping quotes online, which any reliable company should provide for free. This is a recommended practice since it allows you to gage the cost and availability of services across a broad selection of companies.

 The only issue with the quote system is that not all companies will offer accurate quotes, which creates a whole host of problems. We have consistently given the most accurate quotes in the business and continually strive to offer the most honest, affordable cost assessments in the business.

On Time Delivery

Efficient and timely delivery of a vehicle is a top priority for most people that contact us, and for good reason. Being stranded without your car, truck or motorcycle is really frustrating, especially after paying to have it delivered by a specific date. Missing a delivery date is rarely an issue for our customers. You can read about the experiences of our previous customers here.

As A-1 Auto Transport began to grow in the 90s, we developed an advanced logistics planning and tracking software that has allowed us to streamline our delivery system and route application in a way that few companies can match. As a result, we consistently hit the mark when it comes to delivering a car, truck or motorcycle on time.

Resources For Finding Reliable Auto Transport

Research Companies - Look up auto transport companies by their U.S. DOT number or motor carrier license number. (You can also search by name, but it’s less effective due to the number of similarly named companies.)

Safety Studies & Reports - A collection of studies from the National Transportation Safety Board that examine transportation safety data.

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!
