Using Ventura Auto Transport Services
Vehicle Information - Before you contact companies to get a cost estimate, there is some basic information you’ll need in order to get the most accurate quote possible. This includes the following:
- Location & destination - These are pretty self-explanatory; the carrier will need to know where to pick up your vehicle and where it’s headed.
- Vehicle type - The make, model and year of the vehicle are also needed so the shipper can estimate the weight and dimensions.
- Mechanical problems - If you have any mechanical issues, leaks, or your car is inoperable, you’ll need to mention that to the shipper as well.
- Modifications - Any modifications or nonpermanent components on the car should be removed before transport. If something cannot be removed, make sure you mention it!
Disputes & Complaints - You can learn a lot about an auto shipper by simply asking what their procedure is for resolving customer complaints. An experienced company should have a process in place that is clearly spelled out and easy for customers to understand. Most typically, the cause of customer complaints centers around delays in delivery time or damages that have occurred during the shipping process. Every company that is registered and licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is required by law to carry insurance coverage to compensate customers in the rare instances when a vehicle is damaged during transport. They should also be willing to point you toward their company safety record, which details any past incidents and inspections reported by the FMCSA.

Getting A Deal - The foremost question on the mind of most customers is how much it will cost to ship a vehicle. The answer varies widely based on the details of the shipment (distance, vehicle type, etc.), but there are some things you can do to help ensure you get the exact service you’re looking for at an affordable price. The first is to understand the different shipping options. For the lowest price, you should choose an open air carrier and delivery to a shipping terminal (you will need to arrange for pick up the vehicle). The premium service options are enclosed transport, which fully protects the car, and delivery to a specific address or location, both of which cost more. Many shipping companies will also offer discounts to certain customers: students, retirees, snowbirds, first-time shippers, multiple car shipments, members of the military and AAA card holders, just to name a few. These specials are not always advertised so make sure you ask!

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Ventura
Transporting luxury and classic vehicles is usually handled by auto transport companies for a number of reasons. Driving them to Ventura, especially if the other point is a long distance away, may lead to unforeseen accidents, unnecessary mileage, scratches, etc.
Other transportation options, such as trains or planes, are not usable in most cases. Also, safety is extremely important due to the monetary value of such vehicles. To prevent even a single bump from appearing on the automobile, an enclosed carrier is absolutely necessary. A1 auto transport has a number of them available for whenever you need them.
Special Discounts in Ventura
The first time using a new service is always the hardest. This doesn’t have to be true with auto transportation due to the simplicity of working with our company. However, just to ease your worries, we’ll give you a first timer special as a bonus.
Another deal you can expect from A1 auto transport is the multi-car offer. We award anyone who’s working in the military with a price reduction, and we do the same for seasonal movers.
If you’re interested in our services due to moving to college, we have a discount for you too. Seniors are also eligible for a cost reduction. If you meet any of these criteria, let us know.
International Shipping to/from Ventura
Entering another country's territory is heavily scrutinized by each government. People must present documentation for themselves and for any objects they carry with them.
Furthermore, there're specific procedures that must be followed when transporting objects as large as cars. Each vehicle will be checked to see if they meet these requirements.
For example, every inch of the car, including the underside, must be cleaned to prevent insects from traveling along with it. The vehicle will also have to be accompanied by relevant paperwork.
Cheap Transportation Options in Ventura
With the help of an open auto carrier, you can take your vehicle to most areas in the country. If a few other people transport their cars with the same carrier, then the costs involved in the shipment get split amongst everyone.
This is how auto shipping companies keep their prices so low. While using our simplest shipping service available, you’ll pay about the same as the price of driving your car while saving a lot of time. Sometimes, the fee is even lower thanks to discounts and promotional offers.
