A1 Automotive was founded in 1998 and originally operated as A1 Auto Salvage out of premises in Loanhead, Midlothian. In the beginning the core of the business was Auto Salvage but through hard work and sheer dedication the directors branched out into Car Transport (having a few transporters to collect salvage vehicles) and A1 Transport was born. The company quickly expanded as did the number of employees!

In 2003 it became apparent that the company needed much larger premises and moved to Livingston and the name of the company changed to A1 Automotive.

The company grew rapidly over the next few years and in 2005 acquired premises in Bathgate (which became our head office) & Bedlington. Through this expansion the business itself also branched out into other areas such as new vehicle PDI and transporter repairs and maintenance.

In 2008 the company acquired premises in Consett which included a state of the art Car Transporter workshop which is staffed by an excellent team of HGV mechanics that have over 80 years experience within the Car Transport industry.

The company expanded further in 2010 when it took over storage premises at Eurocentral (which has the capacity to hold 3000 vehicles). Shortly afterwards the PDI operation was moved from Bathgate to Eurocentral (where it continues to operate today).

Due to the continued expansion of the company larger offices were required and the company acquired our current head office premises in December 2015 which affords a modern open plan layout for our Traffic Office, Accounts department and managerial team.

The company started with just a handful of employee's in 1998 and currently has in excess of 150 employee's. A remarkable growth in such a short space of time. This is all down to the hard work and dedication of the directors (and employee's) who have shaped A1 Automotive into one of the largest and most productive Car Transport companies in the UK.
