- Vet a company thoroughly before signing on the dotted line: It is important to know all you can about a particular company before booking their services. After all, you don’t want to find out after your car is in transit that you’ve signed with a less-than-reliable company.
- Ask about additional services: Many auto transport companies offer a variety of services, from regular transport to roadside assistance to towing and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I check a car shipper’s license?
The State of New York manages all car shipping company licenses that operate within state lines. Therefore, if you are looking for information about a car shipping company in Rochester, you will need to reach out to the NY Department of Transportation’s Motor Carrier Compliance Bureau at 518- 457-6512 in order to get more information about a specific shipper’s license. For any interstate business, the U.S. Department of Transportation would be a better resource to check registration and license. They can be contacted at 800-832-5660.
Who regulates auto transport companies in Rochester?
The New York State Department of Transportation’s Motor Carrier Compliance Bureau is tasked with regulating operations within Rochester, New York. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is responsible for issuing vehicle identification numbers and licensing to vehicles that operate business across state lines. More information about a specific shipping company’s license can be found by reaching out to the FMCSA.
How do I file a complaint against an Rochester auto transport company?
Complaints against any car shipping company that does business across state lines should be sent directly to the U.S. Department of Transportation. They will investigate any complaint submitted. For shipments occurring within Rochester, you should contact the Attorney General’s Office. You can contact the Regional Consumer Protection Office, located in the Rochester Regional Office of the Attorney General, at 585-546-7430 and 585-327-3240. If they do not answer, then you should contact the New York State Department of Transportation Motor Carrier Compliance Bureau at 518-457-5953. They will be able to record your complaint and figure out if it should be investigated.
Do I need to purchase additional insurance?
No, an additional insurance policy is not needed. Federal regulation requires that we provide a standard insurance policy for every item on a transport. The only time that A-1 Auto Transport recommends that you purchase additional insurance is when you are requesting a newer or more expensive vehicle gets transported. Then, the standard policy may not cover the full value of the vehicle and an additional insurance policy may be useful.
What extra services are available when shipping my vehicle?
A-1 Auto Transport is proud to offer many different types of additional services when shipping your vehicle. One option that you might want to take advantage of is upgrading to an enclosed shipping trailer. The standard shipping transport is an open trailer, which can expose the vehicle to road debris and the weather. However, by upgrading to an enclosed shipping trailer, you have the added comfort to know that there is no longer any possibility of having your vehicle damaged due to external elements. Another available service that A1 Auto Transport can offer is dropping your vehicle off at your home or another specified drop off location. Normally we will take the vehicles to a regional office and have you pick it up there, but, for an additional cost, we can provide you with the comfort of being able to schedule your pick-up and drop-off location and times.
