Car Shipping Companies Near Me

Looking for auto transport companies near you in Richmond? Downtown Richmond features unusual and wholly individual sights, like whitewater rapids ripping through the populated area or the famed St. John’s Church wherein one of the most famous revolutionary speeches took place. This spread out city is perfect for young families and retirees alike, but will almost certainly require a car to commute in. A-1 Auto Transport can not only deliver your car to you in Richmond, but also provides a directory of other auto transport companies in the area so you can comparison shop.

Using Richmond Vehicle Transport Companies

People transporting to or from Richmond might want to consider:

  • Ask about federal licensing: Depending on what the company in question ships and to where they may be on the hook to get licensed through the U.S. Department of Transportation. Keep this in mind when booking.
  • Avoid companies not based in the U.S.: This is a consumer protection issue; you can’t enjoy the protections afforded to you as a consumer if the company is not based here. You don’t know what you are going to get in terms of service and guarantees in that regard.
  • Ask about GPS tracking: If you are particularly skittish about trusting your most prized asset – or at least, one of your most expensive – to the transport company, get peace of mind by asking about GPS tracking for your vehicle. You might find that you can see where it is at all times.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Richmond

Safety is very important when transporting a vehicle to another state. Hiring a professional transport service can reduce the chances of damage to your car or of theft. You can choose between an enclosed or an open carrier when opting for such a service. Open carriers are budget-friendly and applicable to normal vehicle transportation while enclosed trucks are for special cases.

In regards to costs, it is less expensive to hire an auto transport company. It will also save you time and effort. Instead of planning out the entire trip and executing it, which would take you days if not weeks, all you have to do is have one discussion with a staff member and show up at the pickup/drop off locations on the appointed dates.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Richmond

Our enclosed carrier service is designed with transporting luxury and classic cars in mind. It offers a high level of security along with fast shipping for the best experience. Other benefits include daily updates from our drivers and a higher insurance limit.

Such a service is also appropriate for last minute calls/express deliveries, since most open carriers may be fully booked in such a case. However, even if all our standard carriers are booked for the month, we can always send an enclosed truck specifically for your vehicle.

Special Discounts in Richmond

Getting a discount is as simple as calling us and asking for one. There are plenty available, so there’s a high chance there’s one you’ll qualify for.

On the off chance you don’t qualify for any of them, you can inquire about our seasonal offers. These are offered on the sole condition that the shipment is programmed during a period when they’re available. Since there are many seasonal offers set up throughout the year, there’s a high chance one’s already available or it will be in the near future.

If you’re a student or part of the US army, you can receive a discount due to this status. You can also receive one if you’re a senior or it’s your first time working with us. There are other conditions through which you can get a price reduction that can be discussed over the phone.

International Shipping to/from Richmond

Customs officials aren’t normally a deterrent to shipping. Their role is simply to make sure you comply with the country’s importation laws. However, you should know what these are beforehand as well as what taxes are involved in such a shipment.

A1 auto transport can help clear some of these things up. Our staff will explain them to you when discussing the transport. If there are any particularities you believe we should know about, such as a malfunctioning vehicle, please let us know so we may prepare.

We can pick up your car from any location you choose, or from a terminal if you’d like to lower your costs. We will let you know how to prepare the automobile as well as the necessary documentation. Have some paper and a pen near you when you call, so you’ll remember everything.

Cheap Transportation Options in Richmond

A1 auto transport’s staff works round the clock to coordinate requests, carriers, ships, and other variables. We're organized efficiently, so transports don't encounter costly problems or delays. Because of this, we can give you the price in advance and keep it low too.

If you're looking for our open carrier services, they're available throughout the year. You can combine them with our terminal system or with a door to door option if you don't mind paying a bit more. Our transports can be arranged in several ways, allowing you to pick the options you want most while removing the rest to keep costs lower.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Richmond

While open carrier can transport your car safely between 2 cities on land, there are a few features you can only get by booking an enclosed truck.

Full protection against the outside can only be obtained with an enclosed space. Containers are a great way to ensure it when transporting your car over an ocean. However, on land, the best way to safeguard your car is with an enclosed carrier.

Protection from theft and vandalism is derived from this enclosed option. Because your property is hidden, it's very unlikely someone will try to steal it.

Regular updates are a given. Owners of expensive vehicles usually request updates regularly. However, this feature is only available for our white glove service.

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.

Luis Rodriguez
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!

Testimonial by Cristine Benoit

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!
