A beautiful city in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, Hamilton is located in the Lowlands. It is the main hub of administration and trade in the council area and the city is counted as the 4th largest in the country.

Hamilton is about 12 miles from Glasgow and is scenically located on the banks of River Clyde.

Irrespective of the reason of your stay in Hamilton, the fact remains that using public transportation can add up to the cost of your stay apart from limiting movement to a certain extent.

However, the first step is to hire the services of a reliable and experienced auto shipping company such as A1 Auto Transport service.

There are other specifications and regulations that have to be followed which includes that any vehicle over the age of 10 years, calculated from manufacturing year has to follow the laws laid down by the Department of Transport. Additionally, you are required to fill in the details at the Vehicle Import Pack.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
