Ways Of Auto Shipping.
The final quote and the total amount that you will pay for shipping will depend on the vehicle's weight, distance, and method of shipment you choose. You may pick up your vehicle at the port yourself or you can hire A1 Auto Transport to do it on your behalf. You will need to know what type of shipping method works best for you. The main methods of shipping include:
Roll On/ Roll Off is a very convenient way to ship your vehicle. You will need to follow the rules and regulations when using this method. Your vehicle will be driven onto the deck of the ship and fastened down in a single car space on the deck of the ship. This is not only the simplest way to ship a vehicle but it is the most affordable way.
Container shipping is another option for shipping. This way of shipping is often chosen by those who have a car they want to preserve, luxury or classic. You can choose from a 20-foot container or a 40-foot container and you can share a container to save money. This method of shipping is the most expensive way to ship.
