Shipping A Hurricane Equipment

Hurricane Equipment Shipping

Hurricane season is from June through November in the United States. The devastation that often occurs during a hurricane means that equipment, often for life saving circumstances, must be on hand quickly. Winds from a hurricane can blow up to 157 mph or higher. Combined with rain and sea surges, the damage will be compounded and will often destroy everything in its path.

A-1 Auto Transport, Inc., is here to help provide fast delivery of much needed hurricane equipment before, and after a hurricane strikes. While we know the destruction that hurricanes can cause to land, they also cause physical and emotional damage to local populations, especially when homes are destroyed, and lives are endangered.

When you need hurricane equipment shipping for chainsaws, generators, sandbags, large equipment to clear trees and land, our team of professional transport drivers are here to help.

National Organizations That Assist Hurricane Victims

While we here at A-1 Auto Transport, Inc. will work hard to deliver all your hurricane equipment as fast as possible, we know that there are some things you may need more help with. Here is a list of national organizations that can assist if you need help after a hurricane:

  • American Red Cross: The American Red Cross helps with hurricane survival supplies, shelters during the storm and family shelters for those that have been displaced after a hurricane. They also help with emergency food and water and more.
  • Americares: Americares helps with disaster relief after a hurricane. They also help with hurricane tracking and preparedness ahead of a hurricane.
  • Catholic Charities: Catholic Charities offers domestic disaster relief, including response and recovery, nationwide.
  • Salvation Army: The Salvation Army provides emergency food and water as well as family and individual shelter, clothing and other assistance during emergency situations including hurricanes, tornados, fire, and other disaster.

If you, or someone that you know has been displaced due to a hurricane, you can contact one of the organizations above for assistance.

Before a Hurricane

Before a hurricane strikes, it is a good idea to be prepared. This includes taking steps to create a personal safety plan. Be sure to have evacuation routes planned and have a meeting spot for your family to meet prior to your escape from danger.

It is also wise to keep an emergency kit on hand that includes flashlights and batteries, a first aid kit, drinking water, medications, and other items that you will need in case of an emergency.


Shipping Before Disaster Strikes

If a hurricane has been predicted for your local area and you plan, you may be able to save valuable items from being destroyed. A-1 Auto Transport, Inc. offers fast, expedited shipping for cars, trucks, motorcycles and more. We can also secure reliable, fast shipment for your valuables and household items to have them relocated before the hurricane hits land. This way, you can have your valuables shipped to a safe location. This is especially ideal for sentimental or expensive family heirlooms or other property that you don’t want damaged during the storm.

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!
