Moving can be a major life change and it’s often a very stressful endeavor, even more so if you’re relocating to another city or state. At A-1 Auto Transport, we aim to take the stress out of the moving process by providing full service moving, including both household goods and vehicles, to any location across the United States. If you’re planning a move to another state, you won’t find a better option than our affordable, all inclusive moving services. It’s not always easy to find a home moving company that also ships cars, but we’re here to help every step of the way.
If you’re moving long distance, you may have to weigh several options when deciding what to do with your car or cars. Should you sell and get something else after moving? Drive yourself? Have a vehicle towed behind a U-Haul truck? There’s any number of approaches with the decision usually coming down to the financial feasibility of each option and how it fits into the larger picture of your moving timeframe, and whether the car is worth transporting in the first place.
We try to simplify the process for our customers by offering both services, allowing them to bundle two moving services into one, freeing up time, reducing your stress level, and helping save money along the way. You may be surprised to find that hiring a company to ship your car—especially one that is moving your household items—is much more cost effective than you might think upon first glance. When you consider the time and money investment in hauling, towing, or driving a car, the price comes out pretty even, plus a shipper eliminates the possibility of mechanical issues during the trip since no miles are put on the car. The longer the distance, the more likely you are to encounter a potential problem due to the wear and tear of driving.

A-1 Auto Transport is a professional interstate auto mover and home moving company. We offer car moving services across all 50 states in the U.S, as well as overseas and international shipping. We also provide state to state moving services with auto transport, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, watercraft, and other types of vehicles. Your household goods and your vehicle(s) will arrive safely to your new home without the hassle of finding two different companies, offering the ultimate in convenience and cost savings.
We offer a three-pronged approach to our combination moving and car shipping services that serve as the bedrock of our company: experience, reliably, and affordability.
The total cost of moving the car and your belongings is highly dependent on the distance you’re moving. While it’s relatively easy to determine the cost of car shipping based on the distance (see resource below), the price of moving can vary widely depending on how much furniture and other items need to be moved. The cost of moving the household items is best determined after an in-house assessment so as to accurately determine what size truck and how many movers are needed.
If you’re curious about moving costs and don’t have time to arrange for an assessment, we are happy to offer FREE cost estimates based a simple rundown of what you need moved; the more detailed the better. If you need both car shipping and home moving estimates, simply click here and check “Yes” under “Would you like a quote to ship household goods?”. After filling in the required information, we will get back to you with an accurate price quote—no obligation required.

If you’re moving a luxury, classic, or exotic car, you might consider an enclosed transport. These trucks are enclosed on all sides to offer maximum protection for your vehicle. However, these transports tend to cost more.
For those who are looking to save, open-air carriers are the best option. Not only do these carriers generally carry more cars at a time, but there are also more open-air trailers available, which means that you’re more likely to find a carrier with an opening—and that can add up to big savings for you!
A-1 Auto Transport can help to ship more than just your car. We handle trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, and even watercraft! Contact us with any questions about your vehicle, and we’ll help you to make sure you get the services you need.
Getting your car ready for transport is easy. Here are the things to look for:
If your car isn’t currently running, just let us know, and we’ll make sure to have the right equipment to get your vehicle loaded.
Unfortunately, no. Packing your car with household items would be convenient, but it also leads to problems during transport.
Your quote is for your car only, so those extra items don’t fall under their insurance policy. Transport companies also have weight restrictions, and adding items to your car can quickly add up, leading to fines. Your best bet is to let a moving company handle all of your household items.
Sure—all you have to do is ask! There are always a number of discount programs available, and they change all the time. Here are some common discounts:
You should never be afraid to ask if there’s any other way we can save you money. At A-1 Auto Transport, we’re here to make the process as easy as possible—and that includes helping you save!
There are two options when it comes to pick-up and delivery. With terminal-to-terminal delivery, you’ll drop your car off at a central depot, where your car will be loaded onto a transport and delivered to a terminal near your final destination. Once there, you’ll be able to come by and collect your vehicle.
Using door-to-door service, we’ll pick up your car at your home, then deliver it to your final destination. This option tends to cost a little more, but it is also more convenient.
Be aware, though, that some roads are too tight for trucks, so you may need to make arrangements to meet your driver in a more easily accessible location.
Yes! Every auto transportation company is legally required to have an insurance policy that covers their shipments. Make sure to inspect your car before and after delivery. If you notice any damage that occurred during your auto shipment, let us know right away so we can begin the claims process.
We know that moving is a stressful time, and we’ll do our best to ensure that your pick-up happens on the day you prefer. If we’re not able to secure that day, we’ll arrange a date as close as possible, usually no more than two or three days away.
Delivery is more complicated. We can provide you a delivery window, but factors like traffic, weather, and other delays can push that delivery date back. We’ll let you know as soon as possible if your delivery date has changed.
For door-to-door customers, we can lock in a delivery date for an additional fee. If you’d like to guarantee a delivery day, let us know and we’ll make sure to add it to your quote.
At A-1 Auto Transport, we’re focused on making your move as smooth and seamless as possible. While we can help you bundle shipping your household goods and your vehicle in a single quote, the actual moving will likely be handled by two different contractors. However, we’ll be your point of contact, and we only work with trusted transportation experts.
For the most part, interstate vehicle transportation is pretty straightforward. While every state has a different set of laws regarding motor vehicles, our carriers are well-versed in the process!
We make sure all our drivers are licensed and insured to handle moving across state lines. This is a standard process handled by the Department of Transportation, and every driver we hire will be licensed to handle your interstate move.
If you choose door-to-door car transportation, you or an authorized representative will need to be present at both pick-up and delivery in order to sign the bill of lading, which states the condition of your vehicle and where the car will be delivered.
If you choose terminal-to-terminal shipping, you’ll still need to sign paperwork when you drop off and pick up your vehicle, which means that either you or an authorized representative will need to be there, as well.
If you find out you won’t be available, contact A-1 Auto Transport as soon as possible to let us know who will be there in your place. While we want the process to be as easy as possible, we cannot release a vehicle without prior authorization.

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.
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!
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 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!
