A-1 Auto Transport Reviews

A1 is by far the most loyal and affordable car shipping service I have ever used. My daughter has also gone through A1 for moving services. I highly recommend them! Such great service every time.
- Crystal Eynon

I booked an order through A1 Auto Transport and got an excellent service. The Rep I talked to was very polite. Also, the driver kept me informed us and was gentle. My Exotic Car got shipped on time and in a neat condition. I am happy.
- Nikita Miles

They couldn't handle my shipment themselves but they did provide me with a referral which worked out great. I'd recommend A-1.
- Joni Alketel

Great customer service that will help you step by step in the shipping of your car. It got to my new home in one piece, fast and no problems!
- Rebeca Ureña

Great work, I’m completely satisfied. A-1 went out of their way to make me happy with my shipment. I was concerned from start to finish, but they appeased my concerns. I finally feel like I can breath lol
- johan gavida

Thanks guys, until next time I ship cars regularly and I’ll definitely be back to ship with A-1 Auto Transport again. Very happy with how my shipment went, only wish it could’ve been a tad cheaper but still 4 stars.
- Julian B. Harris

Shipped my car in an enclosed carrier, and ended up using their sister company “Enclosed Classics” whom I’d never heard of before. If it wasn’t for a1autotransport.com, I wouldn’t never found this company. If you are looking to ship a vehicle, they are a great resource to use.
- jeme Taylor

Things went well Good work It was lovely experience with them.i like them.
- Joel Burrows

Wonderful! It was wonderful, smooth, pleasant and fast at a reasonable price. A1 Auto Transport were above the expectations. I am really happy with their service.
- Wendy Pan

A-1 Auto Transport Inc. could not ship my vehicle themselves so they referred me to a couple of their sister companies. The positive was that the companies competed for my business and gave me a great rate. But they were kind of annoying. All in all, a decent service.
- Cris Morli

The driver was very professional and worked out a special delivery time. Also, I am so grateful for the professionalism of all parties involved. I will definitely recommend them to my clients, family and friends!!
- Kathy_Kuehl

Great shippers. Browsed around a ton and found this one with great customer feedback. They offered a very competitive quote. I booked them and was satisfied with their great service.
- Kevin_Morales

A1 Auto Shippers totally delivered and picked-up as scheduled. No surprise fees, driver very polite and professional. Would absolutely use them again. The driver and was great!
- Wendy Ingraham

Very professional Very good. The driver was terrific and the process went very smoothly with moving a car across the country. I would recommend this company to move a car. Very professional as well.
- Stephnie Myer

The driver was great. He kept. We informed about pickup and delivery in a timely manner. He was very thorough with his inspection at pick up, friendly and courteous. I would use this company and driver again hands down!!
- James Kahn

Just spoke to a Tony Taylor from this company and he was absolutely disgusting. He provided me no help at all and actually hung up on me. Would not recommend this company at all with people like this guy working for them. DISGRACEFUL SERVICE it cost me $1.50 a minute to call you. if you wish to fix this feel free to call me on +61401252606
- Dom walsh

We had excellent service. They were timely, responsive to questions, and very helpful in that the shipping involved my elderly mother and my elderly aunt. They were respectful of their needs as well…
- Anannya Mohapatra

They deliver my car on time
- Daniel Thomas

I fell victim to their websites all 5 star ratings and thankfully did not use them. They took 24 hours to respond to my call and immediately pawned me off to a very disorganized dumpster fire of a transport company called carlos shipping. They sent me a unofficial quote and when I called to set up shipping and get more information they failed to respond to my emails and phone calls as if I was trying to collect money from them, unbelievably bad customer service. I used another company and will write them an excellent review after this. Avoid A-1 at all costs and don't believe the hype on their website.
- JC

Don’t every use that scam company as I saw the previous guy wrote a exactly review what they’re doing asked me over the phone for over 7000$ to ship 4 cars to Europe from Seattle usually companies charge around 4000-5000$ depending of the way they are shipping those people are scammers just Google it before you’ve been catching by those scammers!!
- Filip Krastanov

You know, I needed to tow a car last week. The fact is that I am overwhelmed with very conflicting feelings. Of course, the master did his job and delivered my car to the place I indicated. I was satisfied with the attitude of the person and the price that the firm appointed. But before that happened, I had to talk to a pretty rude manager. Of course, I tried not to stir up the conflict, but I was pretty angry. I can say that I was satisfied with the quality of the service (directly by the towing itself), but I was not satisfied with how they answer the calls, would not tolerate such an attitude again. I advise you to talk with your staff and explain that this is not good. Otherwise, I will not cooperate with you anymore...
- Dominick P.

WOW, Never been talked to like that as a customer. I don't even review and I have to complain about this company. After taking all my info and talking nice down to the end I asked to be sent a quote to price shop as everyone does. As soon as that happened the mood changed and the guy started telling me he was hanging up on me because I was shopping. Arguing at me that I don't understand shipping because they had such a great reputation. Of course, I don't understand the industry I am a customer just trying to get info! Maybe when talking to potential customers don't belittle them should be a policy but not for this company!
- Eric C.

Their website is pretty easy to navigate, and its not that hard to get someone on the phone as long as you don't mind waiting on hold. Most recently, we needed a shipment to occur after 3pm, so we booked on A-1 Auto Transport using a time window described as "earliest pickup time - 3pm". After paying in full on A-1 Auto Transport, the carrier stated it would be a $60 to pickup during this window. A-1 Auto Transport then refused to pay this fee, stating "nothing in our website is a guarantee". Still if you need help finding a carrier, A-1 Auto Transport is an option. Just remember, "nothing on their website is a guarantee" and you may be later charged fees by the carriers.
- Khaleesi F.

I've used A-1 Auto Transport before with great success. The two most recent postings showed opportunities for improvement. On both listing, drivers accepted the bid and then backed out. This is a hassle. On the most recent shipment, the bid was accepted by a broker who hired a driver. The broker tried to charge more than the contracted price. Turned into a very unpleasant situation despite by documentation/email showing the correct price. I was held hostage. Maybe I missed it but I didn't see a notation where I was dealing with a broker. It just adds another layer of people and complexity. Finally, when a bid is accepted, the dropped you end of with full charges, partial credits, partial charges, broker fees, driver fees etc. Turns into one hell of a mess and difficult to know if you ultimately paid the right price.
- Abram N.

I called this company to get information on transporting a truck from Dallas to Houston at 800-452-2880 and spoke with Erick he was unnecessarily rude, called me an idiot and then hung up. I called back and asked specifically for him to understand why he would say something like that when a potential customer is trying to get information? He responded yeah, yeah, yeah...you don't even know who you're calling, I said sure I do, A-1 Auto Transport, he then say yeah, that's right go on and BASH that company; thanks for calling back and wasting more of my time, and hung up again. Whomever, hired this guy to answer the phone, please rethink that decision.
- Debbee J.

I almost think the company might be recording calls to their customer service line as part of a prank? That is the only possible explanation I have for how someone answering the phone of a company trying to sell a service could be so incomprehensibly nasty. I was honestly stunned into speechlessness by the way the guy spoke to me after I inquired about getting an estimate on my shipping need. Seriously? Aren't you in the business of doing shipping? Was this an unreasonable question to ask? Obviously taking my business elsewhere.
- Jennifer K.

I needed to have a car transported. I looked at a couple of transport companies then I had a friend that used A-1 Auto Transport and recommended it. Their sales team was all right and they were able to answer all my questions. Their drivers showed up a day early from what was originally said, so it was fortunate that we were there already. But we did have to scramble to make the vehicle available to them to load. Then they told us they delivered on a particular day but they were a day late on the other end.
- Alanna B.

After receiving paper work via email from Rubin we paid a $300deposit and started our paperwork. We went back and forth with minimal questions but in the interim we had a car issue and are not able to ship the car. We were a month from shipping and we had to cancel but we were told no refund. They are keeping it for paper work processing. I was sent 3 forms to fill out that cost me $300 apparently. Bad business!!! I'm contacting bbb tomorrow and will notify all pcs movers they are theives!!!! 0 stars
- Megan N.

DO NOT USE. Entered my information for a quote a week ago and have been receiving 15 to 20 calls a day. Even when I tell them I am not interested they call me back the next day, and text me, and email me. I tried to call A-1 customer service to get my info removed but the customer service number they have plastered all over their website is a switchboard that directs calls as sales leads to various companies that pay A-1. They are not a legitimate business, merely a broker who sells you information.
- Gareth O.

Idiots keep calling me day-after-day leaving voice mails, even though I only requested an online quote 5 weeks ago! I will NEVER recommend this company to my friends or family! GET A LIFE!
- Kevin I.

I called in to get a quote, after seeing a $500 or less false advertisement special online. The gentleman of whom I spoke with was rude, arrogant, and very insulting. All because I asked for a quote. He then bragged about irrelevant information on having at least 30 shipping companies that he owns. Sounds false to me...definitely would NOT recommend this business to this con artist. There is no record in the system for my file since you rudely cut me off to brag about the 30 other shipping companies you own, that are "doing so well", as I remember you saying. Thanks for reaching out 3 months after my original review was posted. I hope you've had some proper business etiquette lessons to reflect on. Good Luck!
- AJ J.

Whatever you do, do NOT fill out their online quote form. They tell you they're giving you a quote (ONE QUOTE) for their company which they never even do. You will be constantly bombarded every single day after that with hundreds of different companies sending you emails and texts AND calling you nonstop. They don't even give you a quote, they just sell your information to other transportation companies. Absolutely ridiculous and a complete violation of privacy
- Rachel K.

Customer service was APPALLING. I was looking for a quote for several months down the line, and the guy who took the call told me "i need to find something better to do with my time" as it was many months premature. He then hung up on me. DISGUSTING!!!!!! Will never use them.
- Bobby D.

I'm actually hoping this company is a prank. Had the delight to talk to "Jerry" today and after they came in $490 higher than most of the competition with way lower insurance he proceeded to tell me that "a fool and his money are soon parted." The only fool would be hiring you bozos. This guy isn't even suited to scrub my toilets. Have a good one guy. This company is trash just like their employees.
- Josh P.

I talked to 4 companies. All of them gave me a quote and were extremely courteous and friendly. They answered questions and were nice and informative. A1 was flat out rude and dismissive. Just no reason for that. I wouldn't ship my 1978 Renault Gordini with them. And that car belongs in the furthest depths of hell.
- Brad P.

DO NOT CONTACT OR FILL OUT THEIR ON-LINE FORM unless you want to be bombarded with phone calls, voicemails, texts and emails. This company seems to be a broker. My husband filled out the form yesterday afternoon and by evening had at least 30 contacts. We had no idea that this company is a broker. The calls, texts and emails continue today. Not one quote was from A-1. Wish we would have read the Yelp reviews before completing their form. Fill out the firm and it says you'll get "a" quote, not multiple quotes. Not a good way to do business. I checked them out on the Better Business Bureau website and they stated their privacy policy in response to some complaints. Obviously not an honest company.
- Brigitte M.

Just called for a quote and asked if the car would be shipped on a flatbed, simple question. Customer service agent- "I don't know. Why's it matter? why you wanna know that? what makes you think a flatbeds better?" Dude actually got pissed and defensive. Don't waste your time with these idiots.
- Eddie D.

This company is nothing more than a broker, selling my information to other carriers. I filled out an online form and immediately began to get calls, texts and email, none of which were from A-1. So far, we've received "offers" from at least 10 firms, some of which have emailed and/or called more than 5 times. This is all since 3/28/19, 2 days ago! I have no issue with brokers who have made arrangements on our behalf in the past but this is nothing more than a "referral churning" company. Not a single reach out from them, just a deluge of calls, most of which are firms that get crappy reviews. I'd be surprised if A-1 owns or ever owned a single vehicle. I've blocked the numbers in the texts and and calls and spammed the emailers. Look at the screenshot. These guys at least were honest about getting the info from A-1 and actually have an opt out link. I guess they get a lot of flack for being among the horde of companies buying info from A-1. Big mistake on my part. I've learned a lesson.
- Lee K.

I called this company for a quote on moving some household items approximately 950 miles. The agent responded that they don't move household items, to which I explained that their website and automated quote line (which wastes your time because it forwards you to a full voicemail box) says they do. I guess he didn't take being wrong well because he laughed at me and hung up. Very rude would not recommend.
- Ryan Matthew W.

Great auto transportation service. They were able to successfully transport my vehicle from point A to point B with no issues whatsoever. This was my biggest concern going into our agreement. But luckily, A-1 Auto Transport facilitated this process like experienced professionals that prioritize the safety of their customer's vehicles. My vehicle reached the intended destination in the time period that was promised to me and didn't sustain any damages in the process. I would use this company again for my auto transportation needs because of the precautions they took to ensure my vehicles safety. Thank you again.
- Nate M.

A1 auto transport shipped my car without any problems. I wasn’t sure as to which shipping company to hire as I received several really good quotes. But after calling them I got the impression that they could do the task efficiently and it turned out I was 100% right. I had my car delivered right on time as promised without a single scratch. Bravoooo, A1 auto transport, you are the best!
