Satisfied Customers

“Thanks to Joe, moving my car was easy. It was real easy to get a hold of him over the phone or text, and he was real nice to talk to. I was set to use another auto transport company, but I just stopped hearing from them. Joe got me scheduled in five minutes flat. My Hyundai needed to go from New York to Florida. No comments on the car’s state at arrival. It was as I left it. Definitely worth my money.”

“I transported my car to North Dakota just in time for my grandson’s birthday. I hardly drive anymore and it was getting rusty for no reason. I was glad to finally get it on the road, one less headache to worry about. I got A1 Auto Transport to do the actual transport after finding their website on Google. I was very impressed by how knowledgeable they were, and after sending them a quote request using their form, a reply came soon after. It seemed reasonable, so I arranged for the transport. The car had to get to North Dakota by next Friday, in time for the birthday party, and they assured me it wouldn’t be a problem. On Tuesday, a truck arrived to pick it up. The street was a bit narrow, but he got it in there anyway. Big thanks for that! The driver was very polite and drove the car onto the ramp himself which was a big help. I signed a couple papers and it was on its way. It arrived on Wednesday, but the company was kind enough to watch over it until Friday, when they delivered it right in the middle of the party. My grandson was so happy. He says I’m the coolest.”

“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.”

“Hi A-1, Just a note to let you know how please I have been with your service. The car shipped out of Southern Ca. Tuesday and arrived in perfect condition Saturday in Tallahassee. The driver "Steve" was very nice and knowledgable. He called me on Friday to let me know he planned to be in Tallahassee Saturday afternoon. Then he called again Saturday about 2 hours out and again 20 minutes out. We met and offloaded the car. He went over the paperwork with me and we check out the car. It was in perfect condition. Just a perfect story of how nice it can be to buy a can on eBay and have it shipped by A-1 Auto Transport I recommeded your company highly to the Seller in Ca. Thanks again very much. ”

“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!”
