Pilot Car Shipping Services

An item's usefulness changes with the seasons. You might want to move your Pilot Car to a different location where it will be more useful. The heavy equipment might also need to be moved for other reasons. Tractor units are heavy and bulky, making them difficult to move. Be careful when moving your tractor. There are many factors that affect moving costs.

Safety is your top priority when moving heavy equipment. Shipping a Pilot Car (or escort vehicle) with A-1 Auto Movers is determined by a few factors.

Cost Shipping Factors for Pilot Car

Pilot cars can be shipped at different costs depending on the type of moving company, delivery method, distance to be transported, type of vehicle (e.g. height pole car), the weight of equipment, and hauling date. Budgeting your relocation requires you to be attentive to details and to reduce costs as much as possible. Seasonal fluctuations in demand can impact the cost of moving services, for example. A transfer may be cheaper if you wait another season.

Preparing Your Pilot Car for Shipping

Clients are responsible for preparing equipment. You can simplify the process of moving your Pilot Car by preparing beforehand. The equipment you prepare must be kept safe, which can mean a number of different things. Following are some techniques and steps you might want to consider when preparing your pilot vehicle for moving:

  • Before shipping, make sure to clean your equipment in order to prevent contamination.
  • All electricity sources must be secured and sealed to prevent fires caused by short circuits.
  • Cleanup and emptying of the gas lines are necessary during the transfer process.
  • Wires should be tied up if they are loose so that they are safe.
  • If your special pilot car needs repairs, your expert mechanic can help you determine what needs to be done.

★★★★★ 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.

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.
