Some of the Best Car Shipping Services to Consider
It’s always wise to know what shipping services are available to you. Not all transport companies offer the same services, but there are some that seem to be more popular options than others. Take a look below to see what A1 Auto Transport has to offer. Then, give us a call at (800)452-2880 to learn more and to set up your shipping process.
- Enclosed Shipping: The car is placed within a container where it’s secured and tied down to a pallet. The car and the unfilled container space around it can be filled with other household goods you’d like shipped to the University of Alabama.
- Open Air Shipping: This method is not nearly as expensive, but it isn't the safest method. If the weather is poor or the roadways are unfavorable, the vehicle could be vulnerable to some minor damage. The car is shipped on an open flatbed trailer. The driver will try to avoid poor weather and road conditions.
- Terminal to Terminal: The vehicle must be dropped off at a shipping terminal in or near the vehicle’s home and then retrieved from another shipping terminal closer to the car’s destination in Alabama.
- Door to Door: The car is picked up from its home then dropped off directly at the address given for the vehicle’s new home in Alabama.
