Transport services offered in Vail
When you seek out a professional to help move your vehicle, open-air transport is the first idea that comes to mind. The cars travel on an exposed truck, which can handle anything from 1-12 vehicles depending on the capacity.
A highly expensive vehicle might need extra protection from hostile weather and other external hazards. The enclosed shipping option offers the following safety features:
- Fully covered transport for the best protection against the elements.
- Hydraulic lift gates for the most secure loading and unloading regardless of the ground clearance levels.
- Air-compressed suspension systems, which allow for smooth riding on rough terrain.
- Advanced insurance protection, covering up to $ 1 million depending on the vehicle’s value.
Setting up a new residence or business operations in a foreign country may involve a series of daunting tasks such as navigating the paperwork and customs-related matters. A-1 Auto Transport can transfer your fleet to any part of the world using any of the following options:
- Airfreight: We will deliver the car by plane. It is the most expensive option that you can find when shipping cars to or from Vail.
- Sea freight: We can use a container ship or a specialized RoRo vessel. The RoRo standard offers the most economical solution.
Terminal shipping is a cost-saving transport solution that makes use of the available transportation depots in Colorado. We will appoint one of these hubs for the drop-off/pickup.
When you have a highly expensive vehicle, you might give it the best care during transportation. A slight mishap at the terminals can see all your efforts go to waste. You can avoid such instances by opting for the door-to-door option. We will send our rep to fetch it and deliver it to your residence.
Types of cars that we ship
We can deliver all types of automobiles from as small as a motorcycle to as large as a tractor or crane.
How to prepare a car for shipping
A thoroughly cleaned vehicle makes it easy to check for the pre-existing cosmetic damage. Walk around the car as you note down all the chips, dents, scratches, and discolorations. Share the records with your transporter, who should acknowledge the same on the Bill of Lading.
Transporters find it economical to handle running vehicles, which drives down your cost to ship. A proper maintenance check should involve the following:
- Top-off the fluid levels
- Inflate the tires
- Keep the battery on a full charge
Remove all household items and personal belongings left in the car. Consider taking out all the custom accessories such as CD and DVD players, removable radio faceplates, GPS, and radar detectors.
Run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank. Keeping too much fuel may add unnecessary weight and complicate the shipping process.
Remove all the aftermarket accessories on the exterior such as spoilers, ground effects, and luggage racks. Use a protective cover on all the non-detachable parts. Fold in the side-view mirror and retract the antenna.
Deactivate the toll tags to keep them from accumulating unnecessary charges along the highway. Disable the alarm system to stop it from draining the battery during transportation. Note down the current mileage and leave a set of spare keys for the truck driver.
