Why You Will Probably Need Your Car When Moving to California

Living in California differs greatly from living in other areas of the nation. With a thriving economy and the highest state population, you may want to consider having your own vehicle. Although public transit is bountiful in the state, especially in major cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, it can be difficult to solely rely on these transportation methods when you have a job to get to or strict timeframes to work within. With interstate highways and a great street network, relying on your own vehicle will make it easier to get from Point A to B whenever you need to.

Not only is having your own vehicle great for making deadlines or getting to work on time, but it allows you to leisurely go as you please. You can drive the coast, go visit friends, or enjoy any of the popular activities or land attractions in the state when you have your own car. Not to mention, owning your own vehicle may qualify you for tax breaks and bring about other advantages as well.

Shipping a Vehicle into California

If youโ€™re a new resident to the State of California or if you wish to have a car shipped over from somewhere else, hire a reliable auto transport company for help. California is a leading hub for the auto transport industry. With major ports throughout the state and along the coast, itโ€™s easy to have a car shipped over. The key is to find an auto transporter that you can trust with the delivery of your vehicle.

What to Look for in an Auto Transport Company

  • BBB and DOT approval and recognition
  • State of the art equipment, haulers, freights and ships
  • The latest car shipping technology
  • Insurance coverage provided to every vehicle in their care
  • A positive reputation shown through good reviews, testimonials and ratings online
  • Friendly and helpful customer service
  • A broad range of shipping services
  • A website full of information including how to contact them
  • A longstanding history in the auto transport industry

When you find a few transport companies with the right qualifications and characteristics call them to ask questions and gather quotes. Do a little reviewing before deciding on someone to hire. Then, schedule your vehicleโ€™s transport at least a couple weeks ahead of the date desired for delivery.

Itโ€™s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, Iโ€™ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. Itโ€™s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. Iโ€™ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business Iโ€™ve sent them. Iโ€™ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. Itโ€™s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldnโ€™t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If thatโ€™s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust theyโ€™ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldnโ€™t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didnโ€™t know any better, I wouldโ€™ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Canโ€™t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I donโ€™t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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 couldnโ€™t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldnโ€™t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldnโ€™t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected โ€œsurprises.โ€ I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
