Our transport services in Unalaska
We have a fleet of modern enclosed trucks to give extra protection for high-end vehicles and rare classics. The main benefits that you get from using the service include:
- An extra shield from the elements
- Hydraulic lift gates to load and unload the vehicles
- Air-compressed suspension to give the cars a smooth ride on rough roads.
Open-air shipping is the least expensive option to move your vehicle. We use open trailers that have two decks to pack 8-12 cars at once. Being able to ship that many cars at once helps to keep the service efficient for dealerships and manufacturers. When you choose the terminal shipping option, you become responsible for delivering the vehicle to an appointed transportation depot. We will pick it up from there and deliver to the nearest terminal at your destination. You can get rock-bottom rates if you pair open-air and terminal options when shipping cars to or from Unalaska. The door-to-door service lets us pick up the vehicle and deliver it to your residence. We will work out the nearest spot to drop-off or collect the car if the trucks find it hard to reach your home. Sending your car to a different country might pose many challenges. There is nothing out of the ordinary for A-1 Auto Transport. We have solutions to help sail through the regulations and well as put your car on the right option.
- Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) is the cheapest international shipping standard. Some of our partner RoRo ships can move up to 6000 vehicles in one voyage across the sea.
- Container shipping is a good idea when you need to protect high-value car during transportation. Shared containers can lower the cost to ship.
- You may choose to transport your car by boat or by plane. It is very expensive to ship cars by air, where the cost can outrun the value of the vehicle.
Types of vehicles that we ship
Our transport service covers all car brands and goes on to handle other kinds of automobiles such as motorcycles, boats, yachts, snowmobiles, RVs and many others.
How to prepare your car for shipping
You will enjoy having a clean car at the other end, so make sure that you take it for a wash. It will also help to ease your strain when looking for dents and scratches during the inspection. We always recommend that you remove your belongings and valuables. Three things could happen if you decide to keep personal items and valuables in the vehicle.
- The transport company might refuse to take the vehicle.
- The stuff gets impounded by the authorities.
- The stuff gets damaged or lost while you don’t get compensation.
Check the car for leaks or mechanical problems and get them fixed. Report any unsolved issues in advance to avoid getting penalized by the transport company. Run a few maintenance checks to make sure that it is in good shape.
- Top-off the fluids.
- Check the battery terminals and the charge.
- Check the tire pressure.
Do not fuel up the car before the shipping process. Too much fuel increases the load and creates a safety risk. Since the truck driver will load and unload the vehicle by driving it, you can keep the gas at about one-quarter of the tank. Disable the alarm system, or write instructions on how to turn it off. The truck driver will need a set of car keys. Get the spares made so that you do not give out your only set.
