Kennel Transport Services

The cost of shipping a kennel is affected by several factors, and for that reason, we advise getting in touch with us at A-1 Auto Transport for a customized quote. For a quick shipping estimate, you can also use our online calculator. For domestic and international shipping of your kennel, go with A-1 Auto Transport. We provide affordable shipping costs and adaptable shipping schedules.

Cost Shipping Factors for Kennel

Numerous factors are taken into account before we can determine a price that fits your specific project and needs. The following are a few of these factors:

  • The cost of your project will be greatly influenced by the weight of your kennel. Your kennel will cost more to transport the heavier it is.
  • The cost to transport your kennel is significantly influenced by the mode of transportation. Compared to enclosed shipping, the open-air method is a more cost-effective mode of transportation. As a result, selecting enclosed transport may result in higher costs.
  • It will cost more to ship your kennel across the country than a nearby state or city. The shipping expenses are significantly influenced by the distance between your point of origin and destination.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

There are particular requirements that a heavy equipment shipping company must satisfy in order to transport your horse equipment. For instance, you'll need to ensure they are a company with insurance. You must make every effort to protect this equipment while it is being transported because it is crucial to running your business. And moving with an insured transport company is the only way to accomplish that.

Additionally, you want a business with the necessary expertise. Before a company can transport this heavy equipment over long distances, they typically need to understand them thoroughly. Consequently, expertise is crucial.

Pick a business that is legally permitted to operate in your state and the entire country. It is imperative that you check the responsible federal agency's database for a shipper's DOT number. Your equipment is at a higher risk of theft when shipping with an unreliable shipper.


Preparing Your Kennel for Shipping

You have to get your kennel ready for transport to minimize damage. Follow these tips when preparing your kennel for transport:

  • Mainly if you're shipping with an open carrier, cover and secure the delicate spots in your kennel.
  • Clean your kennel thoroughly before shipping because if it is dirty, it might be difficult to see the damage.
  • Before transport, take pictures of your kennel.
  • Use bubble wrap to cover parts of your kennel that might break off during transportation.
  • For instructions on how to get your equipment ready for transport, consult the owner's manual.
  • Label each component accurately if you're disassembling the parts to prevent loss during transport. It is also simpler to put together at your destination when you label them.

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!
