Find a Good Match

Not all auto transport companies are well-equipped to handle small vehicles, so it is important to do your due diligence prior to making a commitment. Research companies who have a specialty dealing with small vehicles, because otherwise your car or utility vehicle may not receive the proper care. Compare quotes from a variety of transport companies before narrowing down your choices, and then go with your gut when making the final call. Professionalism is important, but reputation and experience are even better indicators of a reliable transport company.

Prepare Your Vehicle

If your small vehicle has any after-market customizations, it may be beneficial to remove them prior to transport. Most transport companies will also require you to run your gas tank to less than ¼ a tank, in addition to draining other fluids and removing all personal belongings. Make a note of any cosmetic damage and take pictures for your own records to ensure your small vehicle arrives in the same condition in which it was picked up.

Patiently Await Transport

You will save money if you allow a flexible date range for pick-up, as well as delivery. So, if you are not set on a specific date or timeline, definitely use that discount to your advantage. Remember that even if your small vehicle is street legal, oftentimes the wear and tear of driving it cross-country, or any distance at all, negates the savings so many believe they will receive by avoiding professional transport. Remember also that a legitimate auto transport company will be insured for the value of your small vehicle so that you are fully covered in the unlikely event that the unexpected should occur during transport. Rest easy and trust that your small vehicle will be safely shipped to its final destination in the hands of an exceptional transport company.

...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.

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!

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.
