Single Car Shipping: The Details Of Shipping One Vehicle

Single car shipping is one of the most requested services we offer at A-1 Auto Transport. One of the major challenges with shipping one vehicle is that car carriers transport several vehicles at once to maximize efficiency and profitability. What this means for customers shipping one car is that they may have to wait until the company they choose has a full load of cars before the transport process begins. For most car shippers, a full carrier tends to fall between eight and 12 cars, which can create delays in pick up and delivery times as car shippers try to facilitate a complete load.

For larger operations like A-1 Auto Transport, these load delays are less of an issue. With trucks running delivery routes between different cities and countries on a near constant basis, we rarely run into issues like this that can delay shipments. Smaller operations, especially those that only operate in a certain area or region, these delays can be more common, which is something you may want to consider when searching for the right company. The larger the scope of the business, the less likely you are to encounter hold times as they struggle to find enough cars to make the shipment viable.

The Benefits of Shipping a Car With A Top-Rated Auto Transporter

  • The safety of your vehicle is a top priority and you can expect that your vehicle will be protected and cared for throughout the shipping process.
  • The proper equipment for the job is always available and you don’t have to worry about your shipper cutting corners.
  • Insurance coverage is included in the cost of transport and is enough to cover any damages in the rare instances when something does happen.
  • You’ll have plenty of options to choose from, whether it’s the method of transport, delivering to a tricky location, or if you need short-term storage.
  • An experienced car shipper with a wide network of carriers can ship to any location, even to another country without any hangups or delays. Likewise, a company with international and overseas shipping experience will be well versed when it comes to foreign import laws.

About Enclosed Shipping Services

One way to minimize any delays caused by auto carriers that don’t have a full load is to use enclosed car shipping. Unlike transporting a car on an open air carrier that may have up to 12 spaces available, enclosed shipping typically only allows for two to four vehicles to be moved at once. Since this is the case, it is much easier to get the process moving without having to wait while the carrier searches for more customers to fill the load.

Another benefit of using enclosed car shipping is that it offers more protection for the vehicle while it’s being shipped. Since the car is completely covered on all four sides, there is no risk of any weather damage or road debris coming into contact with your car.

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.
