Using Sunnyvale Vehicle Transport Companies
- Satellite Tracking - Over the past several years, most of the nationwide auto transport companies have implemented GPS tracking technology into their delivery services. This is especially helpful for customers that are having vehicles moved over a long distance since it allows for real time updates every step of the way. If you’re having a vehicle moved a considerable distance, ask how the company handles tracking and updates.
- Insurance - Insurance is included as part of any auto transport quote you receive. By law, companies have to maintain certain insurance limits for any type of cargo that is moved within the United States. For most private owners, the standard insurance is plenty, but there are circumstances that warrant additional coverage. If you’re having a high-value vehicle moved it’s often a good idea to at least inquire about the cost of supplemental transport insurance. Examples of vehicles that could require additional insurance are luxury, exotic and antique cars.
- Delivery Route - It’s absolutely acceptable to ask an auto carrier what route they will be taken when moving your car. After all, it can affect the amount of time it takes and if the bad weather might be part of the trip. In our experience, knowing the shipping route also helps our customers feel more at ease with the process since they have a clear understanding of where it will be throughout the delivery.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Sunnyvale
The time it takes for a carrier to ship your vehicle is determined by several factors. Distance is an obvious one, though it cannot be altered in most cases.
Because of this, the type of carrier you use will have the most impact on how fast you’ll receive your vehicle. An open carrier can arrive faster than someone trying to drive his own car to another state, thanks to our driver’s experience and resilience behind the wheel. However, since it will have to stop along the way to drop off other vehicles, the carrier will likely take a few days to deliver yours.
If you want your car delivered faster, then an enclosed carrier is the best way to go about it. These are smaller, faster, and carry fewer cars at a time. The price is higher because of this, but since there are less pit stops to be made, it will arrive far quicker.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Sunnyvale
Parting from your luxury or classic car can be difficult, even if it’s just for a little bit. Fortunately, in the hands of our professional team, it will be as safe as in your garage.
A1 auto transport can deliver your car in either an open or an enclosed auto carrier depending on the level of security you require. Since enclosed carriers protect cars from rain and other elements as well, they are the superior option. Speak to our staff for more details.

Related Information & FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I choose the best car shipping company?
To ensure that you get the best car shipping company for your needs, it is important to do a little digging. Don’t go for the first company you speak to, and don’t be blinded by cheap rates. Car transport requires a lot of skill and experience, and in most cases, the line “you get what you pay for” applies to your car shipping order as well. Instead of focusing on rates, focus on the quality of their service.
My car shipping company gave me an estimate of shipping costs. I am having second thoughts about hiring them. Would it be disrespectful to look for other car shipping companies?
If you haven’t booked your car shipping date yet, and all you’ve done is ask for an estimate, there’s nothing wrong with looking around and considering your options. Car shipping companies provide car shipping estimates as a free service, so you are not obligated to hire them just because they’ve taken the effort to compute your potential shipping costs. We actually recommend looking at several car shipping companies and acquiring several quotes so you can get the best service for your budget and needs.
What factors can increase the cost of my car transport order?
A lot of factors go into calculating your total shipping costs. Of course, the total distance between point A and point B matters. The farther away the destination is, the more costly shipping will be. Your total cost will also depend on your car’s weight and size. Larger and heavier cars usually mean higher shipping costs.
What are the normal causes for delays in my car shipping?
One of the most common causes for delays in car shipping is delays in pickup. Keep in mind that each trailer accommodates up to 10 cars, and each car has to be picked up by the crew. If a delay occurs in one of the pickups, this will cause delays in each pickup for each vehicle that comes after.
While on the road, causes of delay can include bad weather, detours caused by traffic accidents, street parades, traffic jams, and road construction.
How do I get my car transport booking to get processed faster?
Companies usually make the most out of every transport delivery by filling up all the slots in the shipping trailer before confirming everyone's booking. This means that if you are transporting your car, you have to wait until all ten slots in the trailer are filled before you proceed to the next step. If you don’t want to wait that long, you can consider shifting to enclosed shipping as the delivery method if you have the budget for it. Because shipping containers only accommodate around five vehicles, it means the slots will fill up faster.
If you don’t mind spending more money, you can opt for FTL shipping, which means you’ll be renting the entire shipping container. This way, you don’t have to wait for other cars at all.
How much would it cost if I wanted to ship my car from Sunnyvale to other parts of California?
Even with local car shipping, your total shipping costs will still depend on many factors like total mileage and car size. For example, if you want to ship your car from Sunnyvale to Sacramento, which is 100 miles away, your shipping will cost around $100, maybe even more if you’re shipping larger cars such as SUVs,
Do car shipping companies stick by the ETAs they set?
Car shipping companies try their hardest to stick by the estimated times they give out during shipping. Of course, many things can happen while on the road, and even the most experienced car transport companies experience delays in shipping. This is why the time of arrival is only an estimate, and you should give a leeway of 2 days before and two days after. If you feel like your car shipping is taking too long, you can always call their customer service center to ask for updates.
Do all car transport companies provide insurance?
If the car shipping company is legitimate and registered, they will offer insurance for all car shipping orders. Of course, it’s easy for shady car shipping companies to say that they have insurance just to get your business. This is why it’s important to ask for proof of insurance before you decide to hire a car transport company.
I need to ship my car abroad from Sunnyvale. I want to ship it via sea, but Sunnyvale doesn’t have any ports. Is this still possible?
Of course. For cities without ports like Sunnyvale, your car shipping company will first pick up your car from your home or place of work and drive it to the nearest port. For Sunnyvale, the closest port would be the Port of Redwood, which is around 15 miles away.
Would it be possible to deliver my vehicle straight to my driveway?
Car transport companies offer door-to-door delivery to their customers whenever possible. There are several situations that make it impossible to do door-to-door delivery. First off, someone should be there to receive the vehicle at the time of delivery. This could be you or a representative. Second, some roads in Sunnyvale are off-limits to trailers and trucks. Ask your shipping company beforehand if door-to-door delivery is available for you based on your destination.
How many days does it take for a car from Sunnyvale to arrive in San Diego?
Car shipping from Sunnyvale to San Diego takes around 2-4 days.
Would it be possible to book my car shipping today and have it picked up by tomorrow?
Although expedited pickup is a standard service in the car shipping industry, it all depends on availability. If you book your car shipping today and want it picked up by tomorrow, remember that this scenario is only possible if your car will take up the last slot on the shipping company’s next delivery. Even if they have the trailer and the crew available, the company still needs to fill up all slots in the trailer before they start picking up the vehicles.
If you want to ensure that you can expedite your car’s pickup time, you can pay for an entire shipping container, so you don’t have to wait for the company to fill up vehicle slots.
What steps should I take to prepare for car shipping?
To prepare your car for shipping, remember to clean out the contents of your car. Remember that the car shipping company is only responsible for the well-being of your vehicle, so any items stored inside your vehicle are not the responsibility of the car transport company. Aside from personal items, it’s always a good idea to remove any customizations and accessories that may come off quickly while the car is being transported.
We also recommend taking pictures of your car’s condition before pickup. This will help you compare it to your car’s condition once you receive it at the destination. If you find that your car was damaged during shipping, you can use the pictures as proof.
Is it normal for a car shipping company to ask for a down payment or deposit?
Although it is legal for car shipping companies to ask for a deposit once the booking has been confirmed, we understand that this may make customers feel uncomfortable. Fortunately, a lot of car shipping companies don’t require a deposit, so it might be better to hire those companies instead. If you are keen on a particular company but are uncomfortable with their deposit-first policy, ask if they return the deposit if you cancel your booking. If they don’t, it’s better to look for a company that accommodates customers better.
I can’t be there to receive my car on the expected delivery date. What should I do?
If you can’t be there to receive your car in person during delivery, you can always ask someone else to receive it on your behalf. You can forward your representative’s details to the car transport driver so they will accommodate them. If nobody can be there to receive the car, ask the shipping company if they have a private lot or other facilities in the area where your vehicle can be left safely until you can pick it up.
I want to do a background check on the car shipping company handling my car delivery. Which agencies should I contact?
Does Sunnyvale have any rules and regulations regarding car shipping?
Each city has its ordinances related to car shipping. Some cities prohibit the entry of large vehicle trailers in residential neighborhoods, while others don’t allow large vehicles to park in residential areas for a long time. To know more about Sunnyvale’s local ordinances, you can check their official page.
