Lying on the west bank of the El River in Humboldt County is the laid back city of Rio Dell. The city is a small agricultural town that acts as the bedroom community for most residents who commute to the neighboring cities for work. Rio Dell appeals to folks with families due to its quiet and slow-paced friendly atmosphere and the perks of small-town living, which include lower cost of living and ample security. The small town profile of Rio Dell, however, does not support a reliable public transport system. Should you wish to visit friends and family in Rio Dell, consider seeking A-1 Auto Transport’s services.  We offer the best prices in California for shipping cars to or from Rio Dell.

Auto transport services we provide

  • Open carrier servicesOpen carriers are an affordable choice when shipping any kind of car. They are long hauls with the capacity to accommodate all sizes of automotive, from the large tractors and RVs to the small sedans and motorcycles. The car is loaded onto the flatbed racks of the carrier, secured in place using industrial strength skids and non-abrasive soft ties. The cars are left slightly exposed to the external environment during the entire journey, but are completely safe from getting damaged. Using open carriers makes it easier for the driver to regularly check the cars compared to using enclosed carriers. Additionally, open carriers can accommodate up to 8 normal sized cars, which creates a resource sharing advantage.
  • Enclosed carrier servicesEnclosed carriers are more expensive to hire, but they offer something that open carriers do not. The carriers come with an intermodal container, which provides extra protection against external elements such as small rocks from the road, adverse weather conditions like hail and low hanging tree branches. Enclosed carriers also offer privacy against prying eyes, making it the go-to option when shipping high-end cars like Lamborghinis and Rolls Royce.

How to prepare your car for shipping

  • Disable the car alarm.
  • Confirm your contact details with the driver.
  • Run a car maintenance check to ensure there are no fluid leaks, low fluid levels, punctures or low battery levels.
  • Thoroughly wash the car to facilitate an accurate and reliable car hauler’s inspection report.
  • Remove all personal belongings in compliance with regulations set by the department of transportation.
  • Locate your spare set of car keys or have a copy made for the driver well in advance.
  • Leave about a quarter-full tank of gas. This is sufficient to cover the loading and offloading of the car as well as driving to the nearest gas station for refill.
  • Take clear pictures of every side of the car as a record of the condition of your car before transportation.
