Transport services offered in Villa Park
Door-to-door shipping: As the name suggests, is the right option when you need to have the vehicle delivered to a specific address.
Terminal-to-terminal shipping: We will agree on a convenient transportation depot in California for the pick-up or drop-off.
Open-air transport: It helps us in cutting down our expense by allowing more vehicles to travel on the same trip. We have trucks that can carry 8-10 cars and once, which leads to quick deliveries at the most affordable rates.
Enclosed shipping: It offers the best protection when shipping cars to or from Villa Park. Covered transport shields the vehicles from dust, road debris, and inclement weather. Our trucks include other special features like air compressed suspension systems and hydraulic lifts, which allow for smooth riding and handling.
Containerized transport: It offers extra protection from possible damage during the handling and transit process. A 20-foot container offers enough room for the vehicle and personal cargo. A 40-foot container can transport more than one car, which can bring down the cost to ship.
Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo): It is a term used for wheeled cargo that gets driven on or off the ship when loading and unloading. We use specialized vessels that can transport a staggering number of vehicles on the same trip. A few of them can handle up to 6000 cars in one voyage.
Crate Transport: Crates built to fit a motorcycle’s dimensions help to secure it from external harm during the shipping process.
Airfreight: Sending your vehicle by plane is a highly expensive affair, and is only practical when you need to move a precious car in the shortest time possible.

How to prepare a car for shipping
- Try to leave the vehicle in working shape so that you can have a smooth transition without running extra charges. Send it for repair to fix any fluid leaks and other mechanical problems. Top off the engine oil, coolant, and transmission fluid. Check the tire pressure and make sure that you have a fully charged battery.
- Avoid placing household and personal items inside the vehicle. The FMCSA restricts car shippers from moving such cargo. Remove all the aftermarket accessories such as GPS, stereo systems, and everything else that does not get insurance protection while in transit.
- Wash the vehicle so that you can run a correct inspection process. Walk around it and record every chip, dent, or scratch on the body. You can use a camera to take close-up shots of the damage. Date all the records and make sure that you share them with the transporter.
- Avoid fuelling up the car a few days to the pick-up date, unless when necessary. We recommend that you keep about 1/4 of gas in the tank, which will allow us to drive the vehicle when loading and unloading. Levels above that can only increase the safety risks.
- Remove or secure the loose parts on the exterior. If you have custom fittings such as spoilers and ground effects, make sure that you get them taken out. Retract/remove the antenna and fold in the side-view mirrors.
- Deactivate the toll tags, disable the alarm system, and get a spare set of keys for the truck driver.
