What Is Same Day Auto Transport?

Same day auto transport is a concept most people can easily grasp since it’s a pretty self-evident term, but it can also include 24 hour auto transport, which doesn’t necessarily deliver within the same calendar day. Obviously, there are some limits to how far and how many miles a transport carrier can cover in a given day or 24 hour period, so there are some auto shipping requests that cannot be guaranteed (or carried out) in this manner. Other than these basic limitations, same day auto transport is just as safe and reliable as any other type of shipping service we offer. 

Shipping a vehicle within 24 hours can be a real challenge and not every company will offer the service. Those that are able to provide same day service tend to be the larger operations with a network that spans an entire region, or in our case, the entire U.S. The reality of the situation is that auto shippers work on a pretty tight schedule and with mileage limits in place, there are some smaller companies that are simply unable to accommodate same day transport, rush jobs, and 24 hour delivery. Another issue for smaller operations is that they may not have the trucks available to devote resources to same day deliveries, whereas larger names in the industry tend to be more capable of offering these types of services. 

Getting A Free Quote For Same Day Car Shipping

Getting an estimate is the first step in requesting any type of auto transport services, and it’s important that you get the details of your shipment organized as early as possible. As we mentioned above, car shipping companies tend to have a very full schedule and same day shipping is a premium service, which makes it all the more important to get your request in early. We realize that many customers that need 24 hour shipment may not be able to contact us as early as they would like, but it can still be helpful to try and request same day shipping earlier in the day rather than later. Time is always of the essence in the transport industry!

If you need shipping ASAP, we encourage readers to click on the link above and contact us right away. We simply need your contact information, the type of vehicle you need shipped, and where it’s located and going to and we’ll be able to help. Our staff is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so we’re always available if you have questions about the process or need a price quote.

How Much Does Same Day Auto Transport Cost?

The cost of shipping always varies depending on a few key factors. The main ones being the shipping distance, location, and type of vehicle you need transported. If you need a basic sedan type of vehicle transport 300 miles in the same day, it can often be done for less than $500, but if you need a large truck shipped 500-600 miles, the cost will be higher for obvious reasons. Likewise, the method of shipping plays a role too. An enclosed carrier, which covers the vehicle on all sides during shipment and moves less vehicles at once, costs slightly more than would an open carrier that ships several cars at once. The flip side to this is that the smaller enclosed carriers can often cover more ground than an open carrier in the same amount of time since there is less weight being hauled. To maximize the amount of miles that can be covered in one day, or a 24 hour timeframe, we recommend customers choose enclosed door to door transport

Finding A Same Day Auto Shipper

If you’re in a position where you need to find a company that offers same day auto shipping, there’s a few routes you can take. The first is asking people you know that have used auto transport companies in the recent past if they have a recommendation. Another good resource is to look online, both by looking up companies using the phrases “24 hour auto shipping” or “same day auto transport” and see what results emerge, or by checking Google reviews. There’s a number of online review sites that offer input as well, such as Yelp! and Angieslist, but take those recommendations with some skepticism since they mainly operate as ad platforms that present themselves as consumer resources. Whatever avenue you choose, the best approach is to try to find the most honest assessment you can find, which are seldom offered by websites that claim to present results that aren’t filtered or manipulated by advertising dollars. 

One thing that should always be kept in mind when looking for quick car shipping services is that it’s helpful to look for one that has a local office in your area. Not only is it easier (and faster) for a local shipper to help with you faster delivery, but it’s also easier to contact them and arrange for pickup than if you were to choose a nationwide shipper that has no presence in your state or region.

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.

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!

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!
