The services offered in Yountville
Open-air shipping is the most common transportation standard. The vehicles travel on an exposed carrier on a trip across the country. Our multi-car trailers can transport 8-10 cars depending on their sizes.
Enclosed shipping offers the most secure transport option for rare classics and high-end luxury vehicles:
- Covered transport helps to shield your vehicle from the elements.
- Hydraulic lift gates create enough ground room for cars with a low undercarriage during the loading process.
A-1 Auto Transport offers a variety of international solutions for shipping cars to or from Yountville:

- Containers offer the most secure transport solutions for high-end vehicles. The airtight and watertight compartment keeps them from getting damaged by the elements.
Terminal shipping can save you money when you live near the drop-off/pick-up hub in your state.

How to prepare a car for shipping
Personal items and valuables: Keeping them inside the vehicle can cause damage to the interior when they shift while in transit. You risk losing your valuables if you leave them inside the vehicle. Insurance policies and federal regulations prohibit transporters from moving cars loaded with household goods.
Inspection: Dirt and mud might hide some of the cosmetic damage on the vehicle. Take it for thorough cleaning so that you can make a detailed record of all the chips, dents, discolorations, and scratches on the body.
Maintenance: Transport companies find it cheaper to move a running vehicle, which leads to dropped rates. Top off the fluid levels, test the battery’s terminals and keep it on a full charge. Check the tire pressure and try to get it fixed if it has mechanical problems.
Fuel: Leave at least 1/4 of gas in the tank. Too much fuel will add more weight to the vehicle, which complicated the shipping process.
Accessories: Custom parts like DVD players, stereo speakers, GPS, spoilers, roof racks, ground effects and fog lights may not fall within the insurance coverage. Remove them and arrange for separate transportation.
Tags and passes: Toll tags and EZ-passes may accumulate unnecessary charges during the trip. Passes form a potential target for theft. Get them removed or deactivated before giving out the vehicle.
Spare keys and alarm system: Deactivate the alarm to keep it from causing unnecessary interruptions during the trip. Prepare a set of keys for the truck driver and note down the current mileage on the odometer.
