Why Auto Transport is Eco-Friendly

Less Traffic And Congestion

The use of automobiles as a method of transportation is frowned upon by many environmentalists due to the harmful effects that it can have on the environment. More and more people are engaging in carpooling, riding bikes, and taking transportation if it's available in cities. Of course, some people are doing this in order to be more economical with their finances, but for others, it's a way of decreasing their carbon footprint.

The auto industry has recognized the harmful effects that they can have on the environment, which is why over the past decade, they have devoted a tremendous amount of resources towards creating vehicles that operate much more efficiently and significantly reduce the number of detrimental emissions that are released.

Many are also surprised to learn that the auto transport industry is quite Eco-friendly itself and is one of the most “green” ways of transporting vehicles. Here's why:

Less Fuel Being Used

The vast majority of auto transport carriers transport multiple vehicles at a time, either through Open Air transport or Enclosed transport. For obvious reasons, this results in significantly fewer emissions in comparison to if every vehicle was being transported as less fuel will be used. While carrier trucks do use a lot of fuel, it's still better than having each of the cars being driven, especially since carrier trucks are now being produced with much better mpg than in previous decades.

Less Traffic and Congestion

Another benefit of transporting multiple vehicles at a time is that there will be less traffic on the roads. Less traffic means less congestion and less time spent by drivers wasting gas by starting and stopping. Once again, all of this creates a decrease in harmful emissions being released into the environment, especially since vehicles use more gas the more that they have to stop and then accelerate again in traffic.

Ability to Transport Personal Items at the Same Time

This depends on the auto transport company and the particular arrangement being made, but in many cases, you may be able to transport some personal items with your vehicle. Boxes could be placed in the trunk of it, which means that you don't have to waste energy by shipping them separately on your own.

Auto Transport is Eco-Friendly
It All Adds Up

While one person choosing to have their vehicle transported may not make a huge difference, given the millions of vehicles that are transported every year, it will all add up. One of the biggest culprits of carbon emissions in the United States are vehicles, so it's vital that every effort is made to reduce them as much as possible. According to the Department of Energy, located at, just 1 gallon of gasoline can produce around 19.564 pounds of carbon dioxide.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
