Using Wilmington Vehicle Transport Companies

Prior to creating a booking for transport in the Wilmington area, you might keep just a few things in mind:

  • You might be able to get a good package deal: If you opt to work with a company that offers a multitude of services, then you might be able to get a pretty good deal on transport and other services, such as moving or transport of other items. This is a good rule of thumb to remember if you are moving or traveling for other reasons.
  • Experience matters, so don’t discount it when you are booking transport: In other words, while you might save a few bucks working with a company with limited experience, you mig ht not be happy with the end result of transport. Opt for a company that has decent experience in transporting vehicles of your type.
  • Read the online reviews; they might tell you something the transport company will not: No, you can’t believe what all transport company reviews say and sometimes, disgruntled customers will take the company to task for something they didn’t do wrong. But you can infer common themes in the reviews when you are looking them over. If the same customer service issue keeps appearing in the online reviews, then you can bet that there may be a grain of truth to it.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Wilmington

Auto transportation via open carrier can be accomplished regardless of the distance. Our trucks will go to Wilmington whenever there are requests near that area.

It’s important you call today to book a carrier. Last minute calls are taxed more, since they make synchronizing several transports much more difficult.

You can use the number above this page to book a shipment or the form near it to get a quote. If you’ve decided to ship your car, we recommend calling us, since it will allow our staff to give you a more exact quote and adjust the shipment to your needs.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Wilmington

Some vehicles can be shipped with an open carrier while others can be driven to Wilmington. However, luxury and classic cars usually require a bit more protection. It can be just as important to transport them without the body receiving any damage as it is to make sure the inside stays safe.

Enclosed carriers prevent flying objects, birds, or bad weather from reaching your car. This is why they’re most frequently used in such situations. Because of this, the service is also adapted to handle higher expectations. Drivers are professionals, experienced in shipping these types of cars. The insurance limit is extended and you can expect regular updates from us throughout the journey.

Special Discounts in Wilmington

If you'd like to ship your car at a discount, here's what you can expect:

The first time you use our carriers, the transaction will be accompanied by a complementary discount. Please also remember to request one if you work in the military. It's important to notify our company of your status as a senior or a student when speaking to us over the phone. This way, we'll know to include our senior or our student discount in the final price.

On the other hand, there are no requirements to receive a seasonal price reduction, other than waiting for one to be released by our staff. Similarly, snowbird discounts aren't given based on your belonging to a certain group. As long as you're moving from north to south in autumn or from south to north in spring, you’ll receive the discount.

International Shipping to/from Wilmington

It’s difficult to leave your family and work behind and focus solely on transporting your car for a few weeks, perhaps even a month. However, that’s the kind of commitment that’s necessary to take a vehicle to another country without outside help.

Furthermore, if you try to drive it, you’ll gather mileage. If you try to cross the border on your own, you might get detained for lacking the proper documentation, for the car not being cleaned properly, or for a million other reasons.

This is why an auto transport company is the only reasonable solution. Towing trucks can’t be used to move a car to another state, let alone another country. By taking advantage of our discounts and our excellent shipping services, you’ll be able to transport your car to anywhere in the world at a good price and in the best conditions.

Cheap Transportation Options in Wilmington

Getting to another country on a plane won’t cost you that much. However, the price will be exacerbated if you try to ship your car as well. Many airlines won’t even agree to transport it due to safety concerns.

Fortunately, there are much cheaper alternatives for shipping a car. In a medium range are enclosed carriers and container shipping. These transport options are definitely cheaper than air freight, but they’ll still cost more than most people can comfortably afford.

Even cheaper are open carriers and shipping with the RoRo method. They’re employed most often, since many people are concerned about the price. They’re very cheap options and have a great track record of successful projects.

Satisfied Customers

“I moved to North Carolina recently and moved my family car with A1 Auto Transport. I told Joe he would find me at home after 5 pm and at work before that. I couldn’t afford to skip work to wait for the truck, and Joe was nice enough to work around my schedule. It took 3 days for the car to arrive. It was estimated to get there between 1 pm and 3 pm, and it arrived at around 1:30. Joe called beforehand to confirm I still needed it delivered at the office. I took a half hour break and was glad to see the car was not scratched during transport. Many thanks to the A1 team!”

“A1 Auto Transport was recommended to me by a cousin who had a roommate that moved to LA after graduating from university and was apparently very happy with their service. So, when my father-in-law needed a transport company to deliver a vintage car for his best friend’s 60th birthday, I thought I’d give them a call and see what they had to offer. I have to admit it worried me a lot because I wasn’t sure they’ll be up for the job: we’re talking about a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado that he and his buddy had been trying to restore for the last couple of months, blood, sweat, and tears and all. So no, we ain’t using an old rickety trailer to haul that baby out to Georgia in time for him to blow out his sixty birthday candles. A1 Auto Transport’s got these cool, modern enclosed transport trucks for the job. Their team offered a competitive shipping cost and assured us the car would be delivered safe to its destination. And you know what? They did. It was crazy. They understood how important and beloved that car is to its owners. It was a happy day and a very happy birthday to his best bud indeed.”

“Your sales office was most informative. They provided me with quick quote as well as followed up on my intended shipping date. I found the overall service outstanding. The pick up date was delayed once but the vehicle was promptly picked up on the second scheduled date. I was informed of the delay in good and timely manner. The vehicle arrived on time and in good condition. I did not use the satelite tracking but I would absolutely, should I ever find myself in need of auto transport services.”

“Dear A1 Auto Transport,I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so very much for the courteous and prompt manner in which you guided me through the process of arranging transport for my vehicle. The fact that this car is not the most expensive nor rare did not detract one bit from the way that you made me feel during my conversation this morning. I started out with no small amount of apprehension about shipping a car with a company that, up until we spoke, I knew nothing about. And that is on top of having just finishing a bid process whereby I buy a car sight unseen. There was no shortage of angst on my part, but you folks made the whole deal very enjoyable and at the conclusion, I was convinced that our new car could not be in any better hands. As a result of the manner in which you treated me, I will go out of my way to recommend your firm to anyone who may have a need to ship a vehicle and you have me as a client always. Thank you again! Sincerely, Don Bergman”

“For the most part, I felt they are responsive to their clients. I read reviews and was not disappointed about the quality of service they provided. I did not get to check on every single detail of my vehicle but I think they are impressive when it comes to timeliness. I am a working student and just received the Volvo sedan as a surprise gift from my parents. They got it to Montana 2 days earlier than expected. Even if this was just an exception to the rule, it’s still pretty impressive. If they always deliver this way, they must be among the best in the industry.”
