Services offered in Ridgecrest
We have unrivaled expertise in international auto shipping. Our team can help with every stage of the process, starting from clearance at the ports. We have several transport solutions:
- The highly affordable roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) standard offers a simple moving solution for everyone. RoRo describes how we drive the vehicles on or off the vessel’s ramp when loading and unloading.
- Containers will secure your vehicle from possible damage by seaside elements while in transit. You can choose to go for a shared container, which drops the costs. There is an exclusive use option, which lets you add personal goods to the cargo.
Potentially bad weather can cause damage to high-end, luxury and the rare classics exposed to the elements while in transit. Enclosed trailers can protect the cars from excessive heat, hail, snowstorms, and windstorms. Our covered trucks include other special features like air-compressed suspension systems for smooth riding and hydraulic lift gates for secure loading and unloading.
Open-air transport is one of the cheapest options that you will find when shipping cars to or from Ridgecrest. It is also the most common solution used in moving automobiles, getting a high preference from dealerships and manufacturers as well. Multi-car trailers make it affordable for many shippers by allowing more vehicles to travel in one trip.
Terminal-to-terminal shipping is another low-cost option that lets you drop off or pick up the car at one of the A-1 Auto Transport depots in your state. You may settle for it when you can spare time to run the chore.
You may choose to let the transporter do all the running around by opting for door-to-door shipping. We will pick up the vehicle from any part that you point out and deliver to the nearest place that you want, including your home.
Cars that we ship
We have different types of trucks in our fleet to handle all types of vehicles. A-1 Auto Transport offers safe and reliable moving solutions for ATVs, boats, classics, farm equipment, high-end brands, motorcycles, trucks, vans, RVs, and project cargo. You can find more information by visiting the A-1 Auto Transport website.
How to prepare a car for shipping
Keep the vehicle clean so that it becomes easy to get a correct inspection report before the transportation. Remember that you might have to prove if the transporter caused damage to your vehicle while shipping. Use a camera to take dated photographs of all sides of the car.
When the truck passes through the checkpoints and toll stations, FMCSA agents will inspect the vehicles for personal items and hazardous goods kept inside the cargo. Remove them before handing your car over for transportation. The list includes aftermarket installations of stereo systems, CD and DVD players, GPS, LCD screens, and radar detectors.
Do not empty the gas tank since we need to drive the vehicle up the truck or off it as several points in the journey. Keep the fuel levels at about 1/4 to avoid creating potential safety hazards from spilling.
In many cases, aftermarket spoilers, fog lights, and ground effects usually do not fall under the insurance cover despite exposure to potential damage. Get them removed and use protective padding to secure the non-detachable parts. Fold in the side-view mirrors and retract the antenna.
You can prevent possible damage to the vehicle’s alarm system by disabling it in advance or leaving instructions on how to turn it off. Toll tags and passes can attract unnecessary charges as your vehicle travels on the truck. Get them deactivated or removed for the trip. Prepare a set of spare car keys that you should hand over to the truck driver.
