Auto transport services we provide

We transport bulldozers, excavators, back hoes, cranes, hydraulic forklifts, gear, engines, turbines, truck loaders and concrete mixers among others. Each equipment in our care is covered under a heavy freight insurance policy which protects them against damage or loss. We also have a reliable team of experts that are well-trained in handling such equipment, including those that have to be dismantled before they can be shipped. Read more about our shipping techniques and discounts here.
  • Freight shipping services: A-1 Auto Transport’s freight shipping services cater for mining supplies and equipment, industrial and office supplies, refrigerated cargo, distribution services and general cargo hauling.

Clients choose from the following three freight shipping options:

  • Intermodal freight: This option is recommended when shipping freight internationally. The load is shipped inside an intermodal container that offers extra protection against weather. Intermodal containers also make it easy to transfer load from a cargo ship to a long haul and vice versa.
  • Truck Load (TL): This option is recommended when shipping extremely large cargo and sensitive cargo like those that need refrigeration. We reserve an entire freight truck for such load.
  • Less-Than-Truckload (LTL): This is the recommended option for clients shipping load that barely fills up an entire freight truck.

We offer reasonable prices depending on the type and size of the load.

  • Military and armed forces shipping

Are you a personnel of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Special Forces or the Coast Guard? We offer discounted military an armed forces car shipping services!

How to prepare your car for shipping

  • Remove all personal belongings from the car, which includes clothes, electronics, shopping items, appliances, etc. Also, remove all aftermarket installations like GPS navigation systems, DVD players or external speakers.
  • Have the car washed before the day of shipping, as a car hauler’s inspection relies on how visible the pre-existing damages are.
  • Leave about a quarter-full tank of gas to cover the short movements involved with car hauling.
  • Disable the car alarm, as the car is completely safe onboard our carriers.
  • Perform a car maintenance check, which involves fixing any leaks, properly inflating all tires, ensuring that the car battery is in good condition and filling up all fluids to their recommended levels.
  • Take clear pictures of each side of the car and keep them as your personal record of the car’s condition before shipping.
  • Confirm your contact details with the driver.

We offer free online quoting services, which help you to accurately budget for your car shipping order. The pricing is transparently done, guaranteeing no hidden costs.
