State To State Truck Towing With A-1 Auto Transport, Inc.

Finding state to state truck towing services isn’t particularly difficult, but finding the right company to work with and, more importantly, which one offers quality services at the cheapest rate does take some work. At A-1 Auto Transport, we believe in offering high end towing and transport services at a fraction of the cost of many of the other options in the industry. With over 25 years of experience, we have a uniquely efficient workflow that has allowed us to streamline every facet of our business, including transport times, cost savings, and general best practices. We understand that getting your vehicle towed from one state to another can be a stressful and, at times, expensive endeavor, both of which are issues we aim to alleviate with each and every customer.

Understanding your options when having a truck towed between states will help you to find the perfect service for what you need, as well as save some money along the way. Most interstate vehicle transport offers two primary options as to which method you prefer. The first is an open or enclosed shipment, with open carriers hauling trucks on the back of trailer and enclosed carriers surrounding the vehicle on all sides like you would see with a box truck. There second major choice you’ll have is between door-to-door shipping and terminal transport. When using a transport terminal, you have to retrieve the vehicle from the nearest depot, whereas door-to-door services pick up and deliver the truck directly to a specific address.

How to Prepare Your Truck For State To State Towing

  • Wash off the exterior of the truck and the cab, making sure the interior is also clean and free of any personal items. The interior may not legally have any other items stored in it during transport.
  • Document any damages, both interior and exterior, before the truck is loaded onto the carrier. This is so that you have documentation to compare against after delivery to make sure no dings, dents, or scratches occurred during shipment.
  • Check all fluids and make sure the fuel tank doesn’t read above a quarter of a tank. The truck is not driven during shipping (with the exception of loading and unloading) and extra fuel adds up to more weight, which can potentially cost more.
  • Check tires for appropriate air pressure as the truck does need to be rolled onto and off of the transport carrier.
  • Gather any documentation asked for by the transport company. This may include the vehicles title and registration as well as your license. Check with the shipper to make sure you have all the necessary paperwork.
  • A spare set of keys for the drive for loading and unloading purposes.

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.
