San Francisco is the largest city in northern California and the fourth most populous city in the state. It is well known as a cultural and financial center internationally and is home to countless eclectic retail boutiques, museums, parks, company headquarters and more. It is number 35 on the top 100 list of most-visited cities around the world and has a culture all its own.
From its proximity to Alcatraz Island to Chinatown to the beautiful architecture that graces the city to the majesty of the Golden Gate Bridge, there is much to see here and it cannot generally be done in one visit. Many tourists opt to get around on the infamous cable cars, but having your own vehicle allows you to venture around the city at will and even outside of it to see that beauty that surrounds the city and the entire area.

Using San Francisco Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book San Francisco car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Shop around: Like other types of services and products, you only get the best bang for your buck when you shop around. Look at the quotes from different auto transport companies compared with the services being offered. Don’t focus on the bottom dollar; sometimes, this doesn’t mean you will get the best possible service as a result.
- Ask about various options for transport: From open air to container, there are a number of ways to ship your vehicle. A good transport company should be able to provide you with all of the options for transport so that you can make the most informed possible decision regarding your transport.
- Ask for proof of insurance: If a company can’t provide proof of insurance, then you might want to reconsider using them for auto transport. The important part of transport is knowing that your vehicle is covered should something happen to it. Without insurance, a transport can’t guarantee this.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in San Francisco
To move your car within San Francisco or to any other city/state in the USA, you can either drive it yourself or get an auto transport company to do it. Of course, the more you drive it, the more your car will gather mileage, various parts may break down, etc.
If you’re the owner of a classic or luxury car, then expenses can go through the roof quite quickly. This is why most people opt for direct shipping services. We have various levels of protection we can offer your car, but all of them will be superior to the strain driving puts on it.
Special Discounts in San Francisco
Auto transportation services have various prices, ranging from the more expensive options meant for luxury car owners to our standard services which are much more affordable. However, if even those are too expensive for you, we may be able to cut down your expenses even further with our special discounts. These are currently available for our military, student, and senior clients.
International Shipping to/from San Francisco
On land, international auto shipping is done with an open or an enclosed carrier. The first option is cheaper, but your car will be left exposed to rain, bad weather, etc. The second method is faster and your vehicle will be covered during the journey. However, the price is also substantial due to the lower carrying capacity of an enclosed truck.
If you’re trying to get your car to another continent, transporting it by ship will also be necessary. This means using either a container or the RoRo method. Containers offer slightly more protection to the cargo and allow for your belongings to be shipped inside it too. However, due the price and difficulties you may encounter at the dock, many opt for the roll on roll off method instead.
Cheap Transportation Options in San Francisco
Many companies advise not to go for the cheapest service in the auto transport industry. There are many reasons for this. You may get tricked by someone who doesn't care about the price they put up, since they can scam you out of your money later on. If you work with a broker, you may end up on an endless waitlist.
However, just because the lowest price can be accompanied by unwanted surprises, it doesn't mean you should go for the highest either. In the end, the price is just one warning sign. If the company's history, review, and reputation checks out, there's no reason not to give them a go.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in San Francisco
A1 auto transport's insurance policy prevents clients from sustaining monetary losses in case of an accident. To avoid accidents, we regularly check our trucks and make sure our drivers get plenty of rest. We also hire only highly experienced personnel and often update our fleet with new and better carriers.
Our trucks are equipped with straps so cars won’t move. They also prevent flying objects or bad weather from hitting the cargo trough the bars and beams that form the wall of the trailer. However, if you want even more protection, then we can provide an enclosed trailer too.
