We go above and beyond with our snowbirds car transport
Check out some of our valued customer’s stories
This red beauty just arrived at “her” new home in Santa Monica, California. The customer was very concerned about the shipping, since he is doing this for the first time. We arranged a hard side enclosed carrier and as you can see, he monitored the entire process to ensure safe handling of the vehicle.
This is exactly what door-to-door service means. We delivered the vehicle right at the customer’s front door. It was early morning and he woke up and saw his dream car outside. He tipped the driver for a job well done!
Sometimes you get lucky enough to receive such a nice gift from your father for your graduation. We carefully selected our carrier for this shipment to ensure that the pickup from New York and delivery to San Francisco went as planned.
An absolute classic! Or should we call this a muscle car? What else could you possibly need. This beauty was shipped from the heart of Chicago and delivered to a restoration shop in East Bronx. The customer required no more than 3 cars on the trailer so we arranged this as promised.
For this shipment, we were hired through uShip. This customer had a very firm timeframe for pick-up and delivery. The customer required a pick-up within 24 hours because he wanted to be there at the time of pick-up to see the car get loaded and as well as complete the inspection report himself. We managed to meet his expectations with flying colors.
We've been shipping this vehicle since 2017. Our “snowbird” is using us for this vehicle twice a year to ship his car from New Jersey to his house in Key West, FL.
Beautiful 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS that we shipped for a repeat client from Bobo’s Rods & Customs. We've been doing business together since 2016. Check out their stunning inventory!
We were hired to pick up this vehicle and deliver it to the famous Liberty Walk tuning shop. After the aftermarket additions, we loaded the car on the same truck and delivered it back to the customer in Houston, Texas.
After the previous shipper cancelled on the customer at the last minute, the customer was able to find us late afternoon on Friday with a special requirement to arrange his transportation over the weekend due to time restrictions. We successfully delivered his vehicle 7 days later from Boston to Seattle. The Bentley still shines!
This vehicle was delivered to the Monster Truck Show in North Carolina. This type of vehicle required a single car carrier or flat bed because of the oversized dimensions.
The customer hired us to ship two of his three Ford Mustangs. He is restoring old muscle cars and we were able to ship a few more cars for him.
Bought from a private seller in Arizona, we loaded the car without any issues. The carrier was super happy to see such a vehicle in pristine condition. The customer required a few photos and videos at the pick-up. Everything went smoothly!
The moment of delivery! The customer is taking a photo of the carrier who is unloading his new R8. Right after the picture, the customer jumped in his new car to take a ride in the city. He sent a nice gesture to our company - a bottle of wine!
1957 Triumph TR3 that we shipped for a client that hired us on uShip. This was a challenging pickup as the seller of the car has owned it for the last 60 year. However, we successfully managed to load the vehicle and safely deliver it to his home.
This is a really cool load for us. It’s a 1940 Nash Lafayette that we had picked up from Salem, OR. This is for the American Pickers TV show.

2. We pick up your vehicle
A few hours ahead of your scheduled pick-up time, you’ll be contacted by the snowbird car transport carrier. This is because they need to confirm the location is accessible for large commercial vehicles. Let them know if you think it might be a problem and an alternative can be arranged. You could, for example, meet them in a parking lot, a wider street nearby, or where you work. The carrier also needs to confirm someone will be available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be present, nominate a third-party to act on your behalf, such as a neighbor, friend, relative, or colleague. Show more
3. You receive your vehicle
Before you know it, you’ll be contacted by the carrier to let you know your vehicle is almost home. A few hours before its arrival, they get in touch to make sure you’re available. If you’re not, a trusted third party can be nominated to accept your vehicle on their behalf. Think about asking a neighbor, friend, acquaintance, relative, or colleague, as long as they’re 18 years of age or older. Show more
