Same Day Pickup vs Next Day Pickup Services

Vehicle pickup is a peculiar service primarily for the ease that it offers customers. However, the timeline for pickup and delivery is a specification that may affect different users’ experiences. 

Many people want their vehicle picked up as-soon-as-possible, but they use companies and delivery agents that are neither trustworthy nor reliable. 

The end result is an experience that no client should ever have to pay for, which is our main service focus at A-1 Auto Transport - ensuring excellence in service quality and customer experience. 

Our pickup services are top-notch and consistently premium. We are effectively organized in managing vehicle pickups and beyond that high-functioning efficiency, our variety of same-day and next-day services allows our clients to enjoy excellent services based on their preferences. 

Same-Day Pickup Services

Picking up a vehicle is no difficult task for us at A-1 Auto Transport, especially not if it is required to be picked up on the same day as the request is made. With the same-day pickup service, we pick up customers’ vehicles on the same calendar day they made the order. Our pickup feature at A-1 Auto Transport is fast, reliable, and efficient. 

We Guarantee Reliable Same Day Pickup Service

We can guarantee a reliable same day pickup service  because of our large operations network around the country. This intricate network allows us to pick up vehicles as fast as possible from anywhere in the country. Our shipping schedule is very open, and we can accommodate different challenges and changes in the terrain effectively. 

Another reason why we can guarantee a same day pickup feature is the presence of powerful, effective mobile trucks, among other relevant resources. With these equipment at our disposal, we pick up vehicles very quickly from the doorstep of our clients without any problem. We are, without a doubt, the best vehicle shipping service that you can find near you. 


How to Select the Same Day Shipping Feature

When a client selects the same day pickup feature, it means he or she wants to expedite the pick up process for their vehicle(s). The following steps will help to secure the process:

Get the price estimate as quickly as possible

The first step to requesting any service with us at A-1 Auto Transport is to request for a free quote. It is also very important to get this customized quote as early as possible. Getting the quote early allows us to manage our schedule so as to be able to pick the vehicle on the same day the request is made.

Make a request early in the day

It is always best to put down a request for same day shipping services in the early hours of the day. The timing of the request is very important, and the earlier the request, the better the chances of getting the vehicle on the same day. 

Submit all required information as quickly as possible

If there is a need to expedite the shipping process, it is best that the client submits all the required information as quickly as they can. The required information consists of the contact information, the type of vehicle, the shipping needs, and the location for the pickup. It is best to ensure that all personal belongings are removed from the vehicle before pickup is requested.

Ask questions

We have reliable staff and our customer service team can be contacted 24 hours/7 days. We are always available to answer questions about the picking and shipping process.

What Is the Cost for a Same Day Pickup?

The cost for a same day pickup varies based on factors like shipping distance, location, and the type of the vehicle. Generally, clients who need to expedite their pickup should expect to pay about $300 and above for 200 miles or more. 

Another factor that can affect the price is the method of the shipping. Using an enclosed carrier will cost much more than using an open carrier, which will also be able to ship other vehicles simultaneously. It is better to choose enclosed carriers though, as they are faster and can meet up with the 24-hour timeframe for same-day pickup.

Next Day Pickup Services

Our same-day pickup service is great for urgent requests. However, considering the limits of a 24-hour period and the number of miles drivers can cover in a day, customers' items might be picked up the next day. If for any reason we cannot come to get the vehicle on the day of the request, we are sure to come for it the next day. And the request may also be made for outright next-day pickup to allow for better scheduling. Our next day pickup services are very reliable and we take great care to ensure that we meet our clients’ needs specifically. 

The main benefit of next day pickup services is the time factor as it allows clients to better assess their request and prepare the vehicle for pickup. It also gives us more time to prep our route and implement the pickup plan for the order. But ultimately, the choice to use same-day or next-day pickup services depends on the best option for our clients’ needs. We offer excellence on all our services across the board.

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!
