Facts about Professional Drivers

Car Transportation Services

There are two ways of moving your vehicles. The most traditional way is using large trucks, usually like the ones you see bringing new cars to the dealerships. And the other is Auto Driveaway. This one is where you hire a driver. There are pros and cons to each one.

The trucks are usually less convenient, are more prone to damage to your vehicle but are much cheaper, and you don’t put mileage on. 

Auto Driveaway is usually faster and offers more delivery options.


What sets Professional Drivers apart from the competition?

Our drivers are hand-picked logistics experts. They have undergone extensive background checks which includes their driving records. Most of our drivers are retired business executives. Some have military or police experience.
