Car Shipping Companies Near Me
Looking for auto transport companies near you in St. Petersburg? Once dominated by a community of retirees, the St. Petersburg area is becoming younger every year. This is not to say that it isn’t a perfect retirement environment, just that the population is becoming more varied and diverse. Its proximity to Tampa, the second largest city in Florida, makes Saint Petersburg a great community from which to commute, or to both live and work in. To effectively get around the Pinellas County region, you’ll need your car. You can have it shipped to you at a specified location in St. Petersburg by one of the instant car shipping services in our directory, or by A-1 Auto Transport.
Auto Shipping in St. Petersburg
Before procuring a Saint Petersburg auto transport service, you should keep these tips handy to help you find the most ideal and professional car shipping services:
- Ask as many questions as possible to the auto transport service representative to make sure they answer everything in detail and show that they know what they’re talking about. Listen to their tone of voice and their friendliness when they speak to you. If they seem rushed, misinformed or, downright unfriendly, keep in mind that this person may very well be the same person you need to speak to after the shipment of your car. If something goes wrong during vehicle transport or upon delivery, would you want to deal with someone that rushed you or treated you unprofessionally during the first phone call? No. You want to ensure you get the best possible car shipping services.
- Be sure to check around when it comes to pricing and services. What may be standard car shipping services for one company may not be included with vehicle services for another company. You need to make sure that the company you choose offers the services, insurance, and shipment methods that you want as well as competitive cost to ensure fairness with what you will owe.
- Ask about the types of payments the company accepts. Some companies will accept credit or debit payments while others will require cash-only payments.
- Try to use a local car transport company when at all possible. You can easily find a St Petersburg auto transport service that can ship your car at a reasonable cost. Using an international car transport company may provide you with lower pricing, but when you need to speak to someone in person or even on the phone about their vehicle transport services, damages, or anything else, it is usually easier to speak to someone locally than it may be when working with an international company with representatives available only by telephone.

Cheap Transportation Options in St. Petersburg
If you're worried whether your vehicle will arrive safely if you can't afford an enclosed carrier, let us ease your mind. Our staff is constantly improving our auto transport services through experience and by implementing the latest technology. This means, among other things, that our vehicle shipping prices are getting cheaper and cheaper.
Secondly, our vehicle carriers are all maintained regularly. Our open carriers can withstand even the harshest of shipping conditions, having an excellent track record with no issues worth mentioning to date.
Once loaded, each vehicle is strapped on the platform, so movement is impossible during shipping. This ensures vehicles cannot hit one another or fall off during shipping. Each vehicle is also guarded against foreign objects by the surrounding beams and bars. So, even our standard vehicle shipping services are extremely secure. The differences between our various vehicle shipping options are minimal, being important only in special cases, like when shipping special cargo.
Auto Transport Safety Measures in St. Petersburg
Although every car shipping company tries to offer protection to its vehicles similar to what a garage might provide, due to various factors, this is not always possible. To reduce transportation costs, an open carrier is needed for delivery. It offers decent protection from objects hitting from the front and sides of the truck, but not so much from above. And, there's always the chance of something slipping through the sides too.
If you want your property to be covered completely during delivery, you'll need enclosed transport. These enclosed transport machines take fewer detours due to their lower carrying capacity, so your vehicle won't be exposed to danger for as long. In case of an accident, a substantial insurance policy will protect your interests. And, if you're ever worried about your car, you can request updates about it at all times.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most auto transport companies will do their best to get as close to your pickup location and destination as possible.
The factors considered when picking up a car at the customer’s preferred location includes:
- Is the street wide enough for a truck/carrier?
- Are there any low-hanging branches that will make pickup difficult?
Ask your auto transport company or broker about the possibility of pickup or delivery to your preferred destination in St. Petersburg. If they think there is a problem, they may ask you to meet the driver at a more convenient location like a parking lot.
Auto transport companies are usually capable of moving inoperable vehicles. The questions they’ll ask are whether the car can be steered and towed. Remember, a driver needs to load and unload your vehicle.
When doing your research, find a transport company or broker that is an expert in transporting inoperable cars. Keep in mind that the cost of transporting an inoperative vehicle will be more expensive.
No worries for you. All transport companies have a way for you to track your vehicle while in route to your new home. Ask the transport company or broker of choice which method they use or ask this question as a way to select the company that offers you the way that’s most comfortable for you. The four modes of tracking your vehicle are:
- An occasional call or text from your transport company
- An online tracking system on the company website. You will use a tracking or contract # given to you during pickup.
- An update only when you ask for it, usually by calling the company
- A direct line to the driver is most popular if the driver is an owner/operator of the carrier they’re driving.
Knowing that the transport company you’re considering is legitimate is a wise move on your part.
Both auto brokers and transporters, if they operate interstate, are required to be registered with the FMCSA. They are both issued an “MC Docket” number, and the transporters also have a “USDOT” number.
You can find out the legitimacy of your transport company by doing a carrier search on the FMCSA website, Licensing and Insurance Public page.
If you’ve had a problem with a transport company in St. Petersburg, you can file a complaint in two ways:
