Ripon is a small-town city San Joaquin County of California. Its economy heavily relies on agriculture, which gives Ripon a rural profile. The most conspicuous feature of Ripon is large tracts of land dedicated to growing almonds and a variety of grain and fruits. Ripon is also a major truck stop city for long haul drivers, which has over the years promoted growth of hotels, motels and guest houses. Due to the rural profile of Ripon, public transportation is highly unreliable in the region. We advise guests visiting friends and family in Ripon to consider shipping their cars along. A-1 Auto Transport is the trusted carrier firm for shipping cars to or from Ripon. Our prices are friendly with no hidden costs whatsoever.

Areas we serve within Ripon
It is important to choose a well-established carrier firm when shipping cars to or from a rural area. Young developing carrier firms have limited resources. Most of such firms make deliveries to a terminal at the city center, compelling clients living far from the city center to make special arrangements to access the car. Such carrier firms also charge ridiculous prices to make deliveries to an address deep in the farmlands, in a bid to maximize their limited resources. Such troubles are however non-existent when you opt for an established firm like A-1 Auto Transport.
We have enough resources to make timely deliveries across all locations when shipping cars to or from Ripon, regardless of how remote an address may be. Additionally, we also stretch our scope of service to the neighboring cities which include Stockton and Lathrop.

How to prepare your car for shipping
- Run a car maintenance check: This involves looking for any fluid leaks and fixing them before filling all fluids to their recommended levels. Thereafter, check that the car battery is in good condition and have it charged if need be. Additionally, check that all the tires, including the spare, are properly inflated. A car maintenance check is important to minimize chances of the car running into mechanical issues during transportation.
- Remove all personal items: All carrier firms are under strict instructions to ensure all goods that are deemed ‘of household nature’ are removed before any car can be shipped. These include clothes, phones, charger cables and other electronics and appliances. Additionally, remove any aftermarket installations like GPS navigation systems, DVD players and external speakers. Such items are not covered against loss or damage. Also remove any unnecessary heavy items in the car that might make the car heavier. The heavier the car the heftier the price for shipping it.
- Wash the car: All our drivers are instructed to perform a car hauler’s inspection and draft a comprehensive report which details the car’s condition and pre-existing damages before shipping. The reliability of the report depends on the visibility of such details. Washing the car improves visibility and guarantees reliability of the report.
- Mind the gas: The only movement that cars in transit are subjected to is loading and offloading. The cars therefore only require enough gas to cover this movement and also leave enough to cover the distance to the nearest gas station.
- Disable the car alarm: The cars are completely safe onboard our carriers. A car alarm would only make the driver make multiple stops to turn it off.
