Safe And Reliable Rhode Island Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

It may be small in size, but Rhode Island is huge in culture and entertainment. In fact, it is known as the Ocean State, so you can bet that ocean-based activities are huge here. Take a jaunt out on the Atlantic to swim, kayak, surf or just enjoy the sugary coastlines that line the state. It actually has a water boundary in common with Long Island and is bordered also by Massachusetts and Connecticut. As the first state to declare independent from England back in 1776, there is a great deal of history associated with this state as well. It should be noted that the state is about 14 percent water, which is also part of how it got its Ocean State moniker. As an aside, there is a rare piece of rock found in the state called Cumberlandite. It is only found here, in the town of Cumberland no less and is an ore of iron. Traditionally, the economy of this state has been based on the fishing industry. However, many companies have begun to glimpse the value of the proximity of this state to other major financial centers in the northeast. A number of very large corporations are headquartered here, including Citizens Financial Group, Hasbro, GTECH, FM Global and much more. Whether you are just stopping through to take advantage of the many tourist activities that Rhode Island has to offer, or you are relocating here for business, you are going to need your car to move around comfortably. This is the purpose for utilizing Rhode Island auto shipping so that you can get from one place to the next with ease and convenience in your own vehicle.

Using Rhode Island Car Transport Companies

When you are looking to book Rhode Island car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind.

  • Prepare your vehicle for wherever you plan to go while in Rhode Island: If you plan to do quite a bit of traveling while in Rhode Island, then make sure to plan accordingly when prepping your vehicle. Depending on the distance you have to travel, you may not want to fill up fluids, but you can go ahead and research a service station ahead of time to re-fill everything upon your car’s arrival in Rhode Island.
  • Do your research on Rhode Island auto transport companies: Find the transport company that most fits your needs. For example, if you want a company that can get your car from Rhode Island to California, then you are going to want someone national. This is the kind of thing to look at when choosing a company.
  • Ask about specials and/or discounts: There are generally specials available to first-time transporters or for those that stay with the same company for transport purposes over and over again. Ask about any specials ahead of booking your transport to see if the company is offering any incentive to book.

Visit the Rhode Island Department of Transportation website for more information on Rhode Island and the plentiful opportunities in which it can offer those visiting or relocating to the state.

University Of Rhode Island – Land Grant colleges were the brainchild of Senator Justin S. Morrill of Vermont to provide funding for higher education by a sale of public lands. On July 2, 1862, with our country engaged in a great civil war, Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill’s Land Grant Act, which gave to each state thirty thousand acres of public lands for each senator and representative in Congress. The proceeds arising from sale, were to be invested, and the annual income was to be, in the words of the Morrill Act, “inviolably appropriated by each state, to the endowment, support, and maintenance, of at least one college, where the leading object shall be, without excluding, other scientific or classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning, as are related to agriculture, and mechanic arts, in such manner, as the Legislature of the states, may respectively prescribe, in order to promote, the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes, in the several pursuits and professions in life.”

Reviews from Customers in Rhode Island

  • The only thing I can say about A1 Auto Transport and Joe is they’re the only transport company you’ll ever need. They moved our vehicle to Virginia in February and the car got there on the exact day they promised. The driver notified us all throughout the transport.

    After a couple months, we had to go back to Rhode Island thanks to work. I found someone cheaper and figured I’d save a couple bucks. Big mistake. The driver was 10 hours late. He arrived at 2 am, woke up our kids, then yelled at us for complaining about it. I showed him the finger and he took off, leaving our cars stuck in the driveway. We had to catch a flight in 4 days.

    I called Joe. He was on vacation, and he still made it 1 day before our flight to pick up our cars. The driver was excellent, professional, and super friendly. Transportation went smoothly and we got our vehicles back 6 hours early. We met Joe once more when picking them up, and it was just perfect. As far as we’re concerned, they’re the perfect company.

  • After my dad’s passing, I decided to return to Rhode Island to support my mom. The last company I used to move a car was late by 3 days, so I went to the web once more and did my research.

    I went through several websites and asked for quotes, including A1 Auto Transport. It wasn’t the cheapest nor was it the most expensive company of the bunch, but I knew not to rely on price for these things.

    I’ve heard of quite a few scams from companies with really low rates. So, I called each one to get a better feel for them. To my questions, some of them got flustered, others didn’t know how to answer and said they’ll get back to me at a later date. One guy whom I pestered a bit too much simply hung up.

    But with A1 Auto Transport, it was a different story. Joe answered the first time and had no problem answering my questions. It was like he already knew I would ask them. His quote was also reasonable, so I asked him to arrange for a truck to pick up my car.

    My experience with A1 Auto Transport was a resounding success! Thank you Joe for the stellar service!
