Being the county seat of Marin County, San Rafael has grown into a heavily commercialized region and a hub for technological advancement. Apart from attractive government jobs, the economy of San Rafael is majorly centered on entertainment, which includes films and video games from big companies like Lucas Arts, best known for Star Wars. Most people live just on the outskirts of the city center, where most schools, bedroom communities and recreational amenities are found. San Rafael also hosts the Dominican University of California which attracts scholars from across the Bay Area. A-1 Auto Transport is the trusted carrier firm in California for shipping cars to or from San Rafael.

Auto transport services we provide

  • Open carrier servicesOpen carriers are multipurpose in nature, and the default long hauls we use when shipping any type of car. The car is simply rolled onto the flatbed racks and secured using straps before being shipped as it is. Although the car is left slightly exposed the course of the entire journey, it is completely safe from getting damaged. Open carriers offer sufficient room for shipping extremely large autos like RVs, coaches and heavy equipment like concrete mixers and excavators. Open carriers are readily available for any type of automotive compared to enclosed carriers, which may be slightly difficult to acquire especially when shipping large trucks.
  • Enclosed carrier services: These carriers are specific to the type and number of autos they can accommodate. Reason being, they come with an intermodal container that limits its capacity. The container, however, offers extra protection against external elements that may damage the car, such as small rocks from the road and low hanging tree branches. Enclosed carriers are however, a slightly expensive option. We advise clients to opt for these carriers when shipping high-end cars like Range Rovers and Maybach, as such cars stand to gain more from the privacy provided for by the intermodal container.
  • Multi-car shipping services: We use open carriers when shipping multiple cars. Single decked carriers can accommodate about 4 normal sized cars while double decked ones can accommodate twice as many. This creates a resource sharing advantage in which the client only needs to pay the hiring fee of a single carrier. Our team of experts can also formulate a cost-effective delivery schedule when transporting multiple cars, each heading to a different location.

Types of cars we transport

We offer a comprehensive service mix that caters for transportation of sedans, trucks, vans, SUVs, ATVs, electric cars, motorcycles, salvaged cars, high-end cars, inoperable cars, RVs & motorhomes as well as heavy equipment.

How to prepare your car for shipping

  • Leave about a quarter-full tank of gas. This is enough to cover the short movements involved with car hauling.
  • Wash the car so as not to compromise the car hauler’s inspection report.
  • Remove all personal belongings in order to comply with regulations set by the Department of Transportation.
  • Have a spare set of car keys made for the driver in advance.
  • Run a car maintenance check to ensure there are no fluid leaks, flat tires or low battery levels.
  • Disable the car alarm.
  • Confirm your contact details with the driver.

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!
