Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Santa Rosa
Old vehicles and damaged ones most often need auto transport services to move them over long distance. If your vehicle’s old, the added mileage caused by driving it across the country is likely to cause problems.
Money is not a big issue, as the price of shipping is quite low. At less than $500, you can have your car moved to another state without wearing its components down through driving.
A1 Auto Transport’s carriers are adapted to shipping all types of vehicles, regardless of their age, state, or value. Call us today to get started.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Santa Rosa
New car owners often call us to ship their vehicles to Santa Rosa. When it comes to luxury or classic cars, a few extra steps need to be taken.
We need to ascertain which type of car it is, if it requires low ground clearance equipment, etc. As the owner, you should also verify if the car meets your state’s regulations.
Afterwards, we can send either an enclosed or an open carrier to pick it up. You can discuss the pickup and drop off areas, as well as the type of carrier your want for your car over the phone with our personnel.
Special Discounts in Santa Rosa
A1 auto transport's policy is that everyone should afford auto transportation even if some people's incomes are on the lower end. This is why our senior and student special discounts were created.
In the case of students, not only may they still be reliant on their parents for money, but they may also have to move their cars multiple times a year. With our discount, we hope to make a difference in the ease with which they commute.
Of course, our company has many other offers reserved for the military, for first time shippers, etc. Our staff can give you a full list, so you'll know exactly how much you can save.
International Shipping to/from Santa Rosa
Family cars can be shipped at a reasonable price even to another country. We can achieve this with an open carrier and a ship if an ocean must be crossed.
On the other hand, luxury or classic automobiles can be shipped the same way or with added security measures depending on the client’s requests. For example, we can use an enclosed truck and a container to separate outside factors which may damage the cargo. We can even book a plane, though it’s very expensive, especially over long distances.

Whether you make a decent income or are facing financial problems, it's neither difficult nor expensive to use our services. Your involvement as the client is limited to a conversation over the phone setting up the details, and signing a few documents when we come to take/deliver your car.
The price depends greatly not just on the type of vehicle you own, its size, or the distance it must travel, but also on type of service you order. Of course, our white glove service will be more expensive. However, we have enough cheaper options to please everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my car shipped to or from Santa Rosa?
If you’ve ever had to send out a parcel, the good news is that shipping your car isn’t any more complicated than that (that is, provided all the necessary information is filled in). First, you need to indicate where you plan your car to be shipped from and where its destination is. Will you need the vehicle shipped to L.A., San Diego, or somewhere outside of California? Once that is sorted out, go visit the A-1 Auto Transport website to receive a quote at no obligation. Or instead, you can call us at 800-452-2880 and a member of our team of shipping experts will assist you in providing a quote and answering any questions.
Are there extra services available for shipping my car?
Take note that cars for shipment, in most cases, are placed in an open trailer during their transportation journey. That means they may be affected by certain elements such as poor weather or debris coming from unpaved roads. However, you have the option to pay an additional amount for enclosed shipping, which doubles the protection that you’d want for a brand new or luxurious car. Another popular option that’s available is door-to-door shipping. This method makes things even more convenient, given it involves setting scheduled times for dropping off the car picking it up.
How much will it cost to ship my car to or from Santa Rosa?
Ultimately, the total cost for shipping your car depends on the size, the brand and of course, the entire distance required for transporting it. For example, if you’ve got a mid-sized SUV or compact sedan to have shipped within California, such as from Santa Rosa to Irvine, the cost will be more or less 350 USD. But on the other hand, having a large pickup shipped from Green Bay to Santa Rosa may cost you around 1,200 USD. One of our A-1 Auto Transport advisors will assist in providing detailed information on pricing if you call us, or visit our website to receive a no-obligation quote online.
What options to save on shipping costs do I have?
Our experts in vehicle shipment will be able to suggest different ways for you to save on costs for shipping. For starters, you can adjust either the delivery time or the total distance. It’s worth noting, meanwhile, that terminal-to-terminal delivery is actually cheaper than door-to-door service, given that the former relies on the closest freight terminal for drop-offs and pick-ups. Also, you can lower the total cost further by choosing standby shipping. This option requires you to wait a few extra days for the next available slot to have your vehicle shipped.
How should I prepare my car before shipping it?
Here are some practical steps ensuring that your car will be well-placed for a smooth journey throughout its shipment.
- Ensure that your car is in a good operating condition to avoid unexpected incidents or events while it is shipped and transported. Check that it’s able to run and start without any issues whatsoever. Next, check both the tire pressure and condition of the car battery. Last but not least, make sure there are no leaks in the engine or transmission.
- Remove any accessories that aren’t integrated into the car, such as audio gear, GPS or toll transponders (in order to prevent unnecessary charges). Moreover, parking passes and important documents should be taken out.
- Fix or detach any loose car components. This includes parts like the antenna or decorative trim of the vehicle. This effectively minimizes any risk of damage to these parts or the surrounding areas of your vehicle as it’s being shipped and transported.
- Fill up the fuel tank at only 1/4 capacity as your car will only have to be driven for a few short distances throughout the process.
- Have your car cleaned and washed thoroughly so that any pre-existing dings, scratches or signs of wear can be taken note of.
- Have two sets of car keys ready, with one set for the shipper and the second serving as a backup set for you. Arrange to duplicate your car keys if you don’t already have two sets.
- On the day you’re going to turn over your car, use your smartphone to take clear photographs of the vehicle’s interior and exterior, as these show its condition right before your car is taken away and becomes the auto transport company’s responsibility.
How long will a shipment to or from Santa Rosa take?
Expect that shipment will take 2-4 days if you’re having your car shipped within the state of California or to the Southwest and neighboring states. In contrast, shipping from Santa Rosa to the East Coast can take up to ten days, as this is a cross-country type of service. Still, it’s worth bearing in mind these timeframes aren’t guaranteed, given how factors like poor weather conditions, public events and celebrations can lead to some delays. For example, car shipments to or from Santa Rosa can experience delay if they occur on the weekend of Chinese New Year. The same goes for shipping sometime during the Christmas and New Year period, as there will be lots of interstate traveling and most major roads will experience congestion.
Who regulates car shipment and transport companies in Santa Rosa?
In California, note that car shipping companies are regulated by Motor Carrier Services (a division of Caltrans/U.S. Department of Transportation or US DOT). And in addition, shipping companies that operate in multiple states or with larger vehicles are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration/US DOT as well.
