Chris handled our transport perfectly! Shipping a vintage collector VW bus from Southern California all the way to Key West Florida was no small task. He did EXACTLY what he said he was going to do, and was on time every time. Thanks Chris!

Good group of people. Shipped an 800hp twin turbo car for us and took great care in doing so. The communication is really good and they will text if they can't reach you by phone, I appreciate that since I'm always walking away from my phone and rarely call back numbers I don't know. Thanks guys!

Good price. The car was picked up on time. The car was delivered early. I was kept informed every step of the way. The driver's were a husband and wife team and very personable. They used a single car trailer and it was immaculate. I'm very pleased with the whole experience.

Covered Car Carriers

5-6 Car Enclosed Carriers

This enclosed trailer looks very similar to other semi trucks on the road. Vehicles are loaded and “stacked” inside a hard side enclosed trailer that has an upper and lower deck. 

Single Car Enclosed Transport

2-3 Car Enclosed Trailer

This single level “non-stack” trailer is often referred to as a ‘hotshot’ carrier. Hotshot trailers hold less cars on the truck which translates to faster pickup, transit, and delivery times.

Soft-Sided Covered Trailer

Unlike 5-6 car enclosed carriers, soft sided carriers can transport 7-8 vehicles enclosed. As the name suggests, soft-side covered carriers have soft sliding tarps for walls.
