International Car Transportation via Air

International vehicle transportation by air is the most efficient way if you value time and speed of delivery. However, there are several factors to consider before availing this type of service. You must search for the most reputable air carrier who is open for arrangements regarding your car’s special needs. You should also weigh the value of your car against high air transportation costs because strong air turbulence can depreciate your vehicle easily.

Prior to shipping your car through air, take note of these reminders to ensure a smooth and safe process:

  1. You can only ship your car and not the things inside it.
  2. Your car must be functioning well and must contain no more than 12.5% of gas in its tank.
  3. You should provide key duplicates to your carrier.
  4. You must make sure that your car passes different clearances. Your car must be free from securities and legal claims before letting carriers take control of it.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Santa Maria

Auto transportation over long distances is highly in demand these days, especially for families moving to another town or for college students wanting to take their cars with them to make the commute easier. If you’re in a similar situation and the place you’re going to is hundreds of miles away, you can avoid worrying about finding transportation.

Unlike most direct shipping companies that only operate in a specific part of the country, A1 auto transport works globally, meaning there is no city we cannot reach. Since your current and new destination won’t be issues, you can call us anytime to book your shipment.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Santa Maria

Auto transportation companies must constantly adapt their services to enable the safe shipment of newer models. At the same time, we must also make sure our carriers are appropriate for transporting classic and vintage cars.

A1 auto transport accomplishes this task by constantly improving its line of carriers while also testing each new product to make sure they’re suited for today’s auto shipping situation. Basically, we make sure we’re equipped to ship both old and new models, regardless of their characteristics. Some of our services are geared towards moving everyday use cars, while others are optimized for luxury and classic automobiles. To start customizing a plan for your particular situation, you can speak to our team over the phone.

Special discounts in Santa Maria

The most important condition to obtain a discount or a special price reduction is to discuss it with our staff, so we may go through each one and see what offers you're entitled to. Everything else can be arranged easily.

If you’re a new client, our staff will arrange for you to receive a first timer discount. If you're also a senior or a student, we'll give you an additional reduction on your price. Those working in the US military are also afforded special consideration.

It is very easy to lower your price with a seasonal offer. During spring and autumn, you can use a snowbird discount too. These are our main offers, but there might be new ones coming out each year. Call now for a free consultation.

International Shipping to/from Santa Maria

A1 auto transport takes its shipping orders very seriously. It doesn't matter what monetary value your car has, what model it is, or what distance you ship it across. We'll give it the same level of attention.

Our team is regularly updated on the best shipping practices of the moment. We also update our technology to keep up with the times.

If you desire a particular service found in our industry, we probably already provide it as part of our packages. Furthermore, we can arrange a shipment that's unique to you and your circumstances. If your budget is limited, but you’re trying to increase the speed and protection your vehicle receives from outside elements, we can work out something that offers both to a level you'll be pleased with.

Cheap Transportation Options in Santa Maria

A1 auto transport is naturally averse to overspending. However, this benefits the client as well. By minimizing our expenses, we have room to reduce your fee. For this purpose, we've created numerous low priced services.

Open carrier shipping is by far the best. While it costs significantly less than transportation using other methods, the quality is maintained. You pay the minimum amount for the best result.

Discounts and specials are abundant for those who need them. Even if you don't meet the qualifications for a student or a senior discount, there are many others you'll be able to use.

Finally, we've organized a series of terminals from where we can easily pick up vehicles. If you take your car to one of them for the pickup, your shipping fee will be reduced.

International Car Transportation via Sea

International vehicle transportation via sea is recommended if you want to spend less. However, you must consider the following factors before you choose this service:

  1. You must take note of the shipping rules, costs, taxes, and duties of the importing country.
  2. The type of vehicle you will ship must pass the standards and requirements of the importing country.
  3. You should secure all documents such as the vehicle title and permission letter for the shipper.
  4. You should empty your car from any belongings prior to shipping, except for a spare tire and a car jack.

There are different shipping methods depending on your preferences and needs.

  1. Roll on/roll off allows you to drive your car on to the ship at your local port and drive your car off the ship upon reaching the port of another country. This is the more affordable option because your car shares the space with other different vehicles.
  2. Container shipping secures your car in a container. It is safer compared to the first option because this method protects your car from external threats and shocks that usually happen in the middle of the sea.

If you reside in Santa Maria and wish to move in another country, A-1 Auto Transport would be glad to help you make the process easier. Call 1-800-452-2880, and get your best deal for free.
