Using St. Louis Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book St. Louis car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Get everything in writing: From the terms of your contract to the quote you get when you book the transport order. Never rely on any kind of verbal commitment.
- Remove extra seats in the vehicle before transport: This just adds weight to the vehicle, which in turn can add to the cost to transport it.
- Disable the car alarm: This not only guard against it going off during transport, annoying the driver; it also ensures that your car protection service won’t activate, alerting the proper authorities that your vehicle has been stolen.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from St. Louis
Our carriers can reach any location on land, including all of our country’s states/cities. Since the price of long distance transportation is slightly higher due to the distance, we recommend using an open carrier since it’s more affordable.
Enclosed carriers are usually reserved for express deliveries, expensive automobiles, etc. Since they can carry at most 6 vehicles at a time, the price of using one is higher.
Some open carriers can carry double that amount of cars in one run. They take longer to reach their destination, since they are bigger and usually have more cars to drop along the way. However, if you call us now to arrange your shipment in a timely fashion, this will not be a problem.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in St. Louis
Our policy at A1 auto transport is to offer each client the best auto transport experience possible. However, since certain services are more expensive to offer than others, options such as enclosed door to door transportation are usually reserved for wealthier clients.
If your car is a classic or something exotic, then you might find it reasonable to pay a little extra to make sure not even a pebble can get near it during shipping. A1 auto transport can arrange for such a level of protection using our enclosed trucks and white glove service. Call our office, and we’ll arrange the shipment according to your specifications.
Special Discounts in St. Louis
A1 auto transport’s student discounts are meant to help our youth save time and resources on their commute. We also assist seniors with a similar discount, as well as military men and women.
Our company’s special offers do not end there. If you’re shipping multiple automobiles or using our services for the first time, you can get a one too. There are also multiple discounts released throughout the year depending on the season. You can call anytime to see if there’re any available right now.
International Shipping to/from St. Louis
While brokers may be able to ship your car internationally, it’s highly likely the trip will be split between many different carriers. Only a large auto transport company, like our own, can guarantee a smooth project, with as few stops and carrier changes as possible.
If you’re shipping your car to a nearby country, the trip can be handled entirely by one carrier. If you must travel across the ocean, then a ship will have to be used, and a different carrier will have to pick up your car in the other country. Our team can also assist you in the preparatory phase by giving you the precise information you need, such as what documents you must prepare and how to get your car ready.
Cheap Transportation Options in St. Louis
A1 auto transport promotes both cheap and expensive shipping options, so each client can accomplish his/her goals within a reasonable budget.
For clients with fewer financial possibilities, we've prepared large open trucks that can ship a lot of cars at the same time. The more cars we transport simultaneously, the less we can charge our clients, since the costs of maintaining the truck are split amongst the participants.
Terminals are another great resource you can take advantage of to keep prices low. Our team offers a door to door option too, but if the driver has to go to a far away location for the pick-up, the price will go up proportionally to the distance. Terminals are always the cheaper alternative.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in St. Louis
A1 auto transport will provide adequate protection for your car's move. We take measures to ensure our trucks don't run through dangerous areas. We also check them frequently for malfunctions.
The most important factor ensuring your car's safety is the carrier. A close second is the driver. This is why our drivers go through an extensive screening process before joining our team. We make sure they have numerous years of experience and a flawless track record.
With these 2 factors handled, all you need to worry about is what type of transport you want. If you opt for the cheaper open shipment, your car will be at a higher risk of getting hit by pebbles or birds. If you use an enclosed auto carrier, this chance will be removed, but you will also have to pay more.
