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.

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!
