Using Spokane Vehicle Transport Companies
If you are shipping a vehicle to or from Spokane, there are some tips to keep in mind during the process:
- Note the reading on the odometer: Make sure that it is in line with what it should be after your car was transported, particularly if it was carried on a tractor-trailer. Remember, some companies are sticklers for what the odometer reading should be in order to have checks and balances with their drivers.
- Ask for a transport report: This will give you an idea of any issues that occurred with the transport order, specifics on the transport process and any other pertinent information that you need to retain for your records.
- Let your insurance company know about the transport: While they won’t necessarily cover any damage incurred during the order (that is the responsibility of the transport company’s insurance carrier), it is still prudent to give them a heads up that your vehicle is being shipped.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Spokane
For intrastate moves, people tend to try and do it on their own. However, when shipping a car to another state, a professional company becomes necessary. As the client, you won’t have to pay more than what the fuel and various other expenses would cost you, and the service will save you some time as well.
When going on a long distance drive, you’ll likely have to pay for fuel, accommodation, food, flat tires, and other repairs. Auto transport companies split these costs among their clients, so you only pay a fraction. Because of this, despite having to pay the company’s side as well, the final price is low. It can even be below $500 depending on where you need to take your car.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Spokane
Safety concerns when transporting luxury and classic vehicles are a given due to their very high value. Even the smallest repair can cost a fortune, so clients usually demand the best options we have to offer. To this request, we respond with our white glove service.
To ensure your car is perfectly safe from both wear and tear and outside forces, we use an enclosed auto carrier to move it. Our professional driver will strap the car in place rendering it immobile while it’s also being protected from flying objects, such as pebbles. Not only that, but we will keep you up to date on its status on a regular basis and prepare an insurance policy that will be active during the transport as well.
Special Discounts in Spokane
If you’ve never shipped your car before, do not hesitate to verbalize any worries you may have. Our staff will do everything in their power to make sure you have a pleasant experience, and you'll even receive a discount for using our services for the first time.
A1 auto transport also has special discounts for senior citizens. We would like to help military personnel and students as well. If you're not part of these groups, you can still use our seasonal discounts to reduce your costs. All you have to do is call and ask when they will be available.
International Shipping to/from Spokane
Passing international borders isn't particularly difficult provided all the right paperwork is accounted for. However, when ports are involved, things become a bit trickier.
The easiest way to ship your car on a ship is with the RoRo method. Our driver will take your car out of the truck and drive it on deck. After it arrives at the other side of the ocean, another driver will receive it, load it in a carrier, and take it to the final location.
However, if you want, you can also ship the car in a container. An extra advantage of this is the fact that you can fill the remaining space with your personal belongings. However, the price will also be higher. If you share a container with someone else, the problem of ‘which items belong to who’ may cause significant delays. It’s not uncommon for items to be held up at the port for a week or more until the issue is resolved.
Cheap Transportation Options in Spokane
It's not uncommon that we receive a call from a potential customer asking for the lowest possible price we can give him/her. These days, expenses rapidly pile up especially when buying a new car or when moving to another state.
If you too are looking for the lowest possible bid, our staff can help you. We can arrange the transport in such a way that you incur as few expenses as possible and you receive at least 1 discount.
For this to work, we need to know the exact situation we're faced with, where you're located, where the car must go, and any other details we may need. We recommend you call us directly, so we may go through everything. You can provide us with plenty of information through the online form, but you're likely to get a superior result through the phone.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in Spokane
A1 auto transport takes full control and responsibility of your automobile's safety. The transport itself is conducted by expert drivers using highly modern auto carriers. These are inspected regularly, so any malfunctions caused by driving are fixed.
Each shipment is accompanied by an insurance policy. In case of damage to your property, you'll be able to fix it easily without paying out of your pocket. Before handing over your car, you can take photos of it. If there’s a difference when you take it back, let our driver know, and if your complaint is valid, you’ll be compensated.
