Safe And Reliable San Diego Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

This is the 8th largest city in the entire country and the second largest in the state. It is situated in southern California and is nearby the Mexican border. This contributes to the rich diversity of the area and makes for a cultural blend that results in a number of attractions and museums and a slew of eateries service up fusion dishes that you might not get anywhere else in the country.

San Diego

The temperature here is mild just about all year, making it a hot spot for beachgoers and the mild climate also made it an attractive option for the U.S. Navy to establish a base here. There are just over a million people living in San Diego, with 52 communities within the city’s borders. San Diego Bay offers scenic views and the parks scattered around the city provide recreational opportunities aplenty.

Tourism is big business here, as there is much to see from the San Diego Zoo to SeaWorld San Diego to the mass of annual events held here, including the ever popular ComicCon. This is a large city, so getting around via car or other vehicle is a must if you want to see all that this California city has to offer.

Using San Diego Vehicle Transport Companies

When you are looking to book San Diego car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:

  • Ask about accepted forms of payment upon delivery: Depending on when your vehicle is delivered, you may need to pay with cash, particularly if you paying the driver directly. Many drivers can’t accept cash or credit cards; don’t forget to include a tip as well for delivery.
  • Read your shipping contract carefully: This is important because you should understand all caveats of it; in the event that there is something you need to be changed, request that it be done before you sign the contract, so you aren’t beholden to anything in the contract with which you are not comfortable.
  • Inform your insurance company about the shipping appointment: In the event that something goes wrong, your insurance company should be prepared to respond swiftly to the claim in question. It helps if there is a note on your account that your vehicle was being shipped, so your claims adjuster can respond accordingly.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from San Diego

When planning your long distance auto transport, it’s best you decide on a date and reserve it with the company as soon as you can. Short notice car shipments tend to cost more because the company doesn’t have the time to plan things properly.

If you call now to schedule a shipment for 2 months into the future, our staff can use that period to find several other clients who want to ship their cars at the same time and on the same general route as you.

However, if you need an expedited service, we will have to send a carrier to pick up only your car. Therefore, instead of sharing the price with several other people, you’ll have to pay the full cost instead.

International Shipping to/from San Diego

Cheap Transportation Options in San Diego

If you’re looking for answers to the question of how to lower your auto transportation costs as much as possible, the overall strategy is rather simple.

First of all, work with a large auto shipping company, since they usually have the lowest rates. They’re also more likely to offer discounts in certain situation.

After picking your ideal company, negotiate the shipment’s details. Let them know you’re looking for the lowest possible price. Every company has expensive options and cheap ones, so go for the latter.

Finally, check out their discount program. See if you can qualify for several of them. Some discounts are situational, so see what you need to do to use them.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in San Diego

If you’re going to transport an automobile over a substantial distance, it’s safer to do it with a professional company than on your own. The car will gather mileage the more you drive it, eventually leading to internal damage. It will also be directly exposed to dust, flying pebbles, bad weather, etc.

If you get a friend to transport it in a rented truck, it will be slightly safer. However, if the driver isn’t experienced and the distance is long enough, the risk of an accident can be very high.

Auto transport companies are very cheap to work with and offer much higher levels of protection. They have professional drivers and insurance policies that cover each client.

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!
