Our clients say


They were very professional along the way as was the driver who checked in to arrange time of pick-up, and time of drop-off while on the road. We requested an enclosed truck, which was exactly what arrived at our home for our two vintage cars going from NV to TX. We had heard horror stories about companies who take your money and not deliver what you request, so we were extremely happy with Route Runners. Also know, Route Runners was very friendly over the phone and had answered all my questions in full detail. I would speak highly of to anybody I knew who need their car transported.

Route Runners was able to deliver a driver at a reasonable rate

I've used Route Runners Auto Transport to ship my car from CA to NC (and back). It was my first time dealing with car shipping and it went very smoothly working with Route Runners! They gave me a good price and also worked hard to honor the price while searching for carriers. They are easy to get a hold of by phone and always email confirmations. Will definitely be recommending this company to friends and family for their car shipment needs.

They Were Incredibly Reliable

I needed my 2006 335i BMW transported from New Jersey to Seattle. The booking process with Route Runners Auto Transport went very smoothly, and within 24 hours I had a pickup date for my vehicle. My vehicle was picked up on June 2 and delivered to my home in Seattle, WA on June 7 (within 5 days). The car was delivered in the same condition it was picked up, and all the cargo inside the vehicle was untouched and undamaged. Communication with the truck driver is easy, as you can text/call them anytime to check on the status of the delivery. I am very pleased with the ease of use and speedy delivery provided by Route Runners Auto Transport. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their vehicle transported quick.

Speedy Delivery and Easy to Use

All I know is I am very happy my car made it from Michigan to Florida in one piece and free of any scratches or dents. I called the driver for his status when he was in transit and was very nice to hear his updates. I was very worried at first since my car is a baby still (I've only had it a few months) so trusting my car in someone else's hands was scary!

I am delighted I found Route Runners
