Dispatch Customer Service: 800-340-1426. Please use this number after you have sent in your order for questions relating to the pickup or delivery of your vehicle.
NOTE: Hawaii/Alaska moves must have pickup and/or delivery at the port facility in Hawaii or Anchorage. All other moves are quoted as Door to Door*. Able Auto Transport, Inc. will not be responsible for demurrage at Matson port facilities.
* Door to Door Service Defined: Door-to-Door means the auto shipping or car transport driver will get as close to your door as he can legally and safely get. Many cities have restrictions on large trucks that prohibit them from driving into some residential areas. Transport trucks are enormous and need lots of room to maneuver and turn around, so if access to your home is restricted by narrow streets, low-hanging trees, speed bumps or tight turns, the driver may ask that you meet the truck at a large parking lot nearby such as a grocery store.
Special requirements when shipping your car FROM Hawaii:
The State of Hawaii requires proof of ownership when an automobile is delivered in Hawaii for shipment to the Mainland.
We cannot accept a vehicle for a shipment from the State of Hawaii unless a certificate of ownership and a current certificate of registration accompany it.
If someone other than the registered owner is shipping the automobile, in addition to the above documents, we must have a notarized letter of authorization from the registered owner.
If the lien holder is named on the registration, a letter from the lien holder authorizing shipment from Hawaii is required. Hawaii State Law does not allow any exceptions to these requirements.
Sometimes proof of insurance is required, so please have this information available also.
Vehicles must not have a cracked windshield. (This is for shipping both to and from Hawaii.)
Should your electronic check return “non-sufficient funds”, you will be subject to a $20 reprocessing fee. Please make sure your account has sufficient funds for us to claim for the relocation of your vehicle(s). We are not responsible for any fees regarding lack of funds.
TERMS & CONDITIONS (Based on Industry Standards)
1. Able Auto Transport, Inc. (a broker MC195242) hereafter referred to as AAT agrees to have vehicle(s) described on quotation shipped on or about the dates requested. AAT will designate a reliable carrier’s (agent) to fulfill the terms and conditions of this agreement. AAT or its Agents do not guarantee a specific pickup or delivery date.
2. This order is subject to all terms and conditions of the carrier’s straight bill of lading, copies of which are available at the office of carrier and are incorporated herein.
3. Carriers responsibility begins when the shipper or his agent signs the bill of lading at pickup, and terminates when the shipper or his agent signs the bill of lading at delivery. AAT must be notified, should the shipper be unavailable for pickup or delivery, and his agent must be designated at that time.
4. AAT hereby notifies shipper that his vehicle will be driven on and off the transporter, or to and from the transporter at the pickup or delivery site, should the carrier be unable to access either site. This does not relieve the consignee from making a reasonable effort to meet the truck at a suitable location. If vehicle is not made available to transporter once they have been dispatched and pickup date has been confirmed, you will be charged a dry run fee to cover transporter fuel expenses.
5. All vehicles to be delivered with a balance due shall be paid by CASH or CASHIERS CHECK ONLY (US funds). Should delivery be attempted after attempted notification (3 to 24 hours voice notification to phone numbers provided by shipper) and shipper or his agent does not have proper funds or is unavailable to receive delivery, vehicle(s) will be taken to and left at the nearest terminal at the discretion of AAT, where shipper will have to retrieve and pay for storage or redelivery fees.
6. AAT does not guarantee transport by any specific driver/carrier. Primary Insurance for your vehicle(s) is provided by the carrier assigned to your move. As a broker AAT is restricted by law from providing Primary Insurance for your move.
7. If you are shipping an inoperable vehicle, you may be required to help load and unload said vehicle at the discretion of the driver. Should vehicle(s) become inoperable during transport, an inop fee of $100 to $200 (depending on vehicle size and/or our discretion) will be due at time of delivery in addition to any other moneys owed. It is shipper's responsibility to make sure vehicle is in proper working order.
8. AAT or its agents will not knowingly transport vehicles with personal or household items in the passenger or trunk compartment. Federal regulation prohibits AAT or its agents from doing so. If such items are shipped unbeknown to AAT or its agents, such items become the sole responsibility of the shipper. Should damage occur or fines be levied, said fines or damage are shippers responsibility. If you place personal items in your car you will be subject to additional fees at the discretion of the transporting company.
9. AAT or its agents will not be responsible for vandalism, acts of god (fire, flooding, hail, sand storm, tornadoes, earthquakes) or objects flying from the road or sky during transport. Shippers should maintain their own insurance for these reasons.

11. If damage should occur, all moneys owed for transport must be paid to initiate a claim. Damage must be noted in the proper place on the bill of lading, and signed by driver and shipper, regardless of weather, or time of day. Signing the bill of lading without any notation of damage verifies that shipper or his agent has received said vehicle in good condition, and that AAT and its agents are relieved of any further responsibility. Shipper or his agent MUST check vehicle thoroughly.
12. AAT and its agents must also be notified of any damage by phone within 24 hours. Shipper must submit in writing a description of damage, clear pictures, and 2 estimates within 10 days of receipt of said vehicle directly to the designated carrier for any resolution to be initiated. AAT will support you in this effort should such a problem occur, but in no way will AAT accept responsibility for any negligence of the assigned carrier.

13. Any claim or controversy arising from or relating to this agreement, or the performance or breach thereof, shall be subject to the jurisdiction of Clark County, Kahoka, Missouri.
