You Must Check Out This BMW i8 That We Shipped

Transported An Exotic BMW

 

Who said efficiency before beauty? I want both and I’m pretty sure I’ve found it in the new BMW i8. We provided auto transport for this scorching BMW i8 – Shipped from Alabama to Connecticut.

With a turbo-charged, 12-valve, 1.5 Liter inline mid-engine this beast can really accelerate. Many people underestimate the power of of the mid-engine it gives the cars initial acceleration a big boost making it ideal for drag-racing (not that we’re condoning going fast or anything 😉

The i8 coupe (only option available) features great luxurious looks with a slight futuristic edginess to it as well. The “layered” dashboad is the definition of sleek curves. It includes an advanced digital readout screen instead of the usual analogue indicators. To top it all off step outside to experience the chic swan-wing doors, they fit perfectly with this cars design. Well done BMW, well done.

Paul was able to present the beauty on an episode of American Chopper.

As with many things Trump, the exotic bike was made with 24 carat gold and absolutely exquisite detail. The 100% American made bike is now currently on display at the Trump Doral located in Doral, Florida. Go see it to believe it!

Enclosed Auto Transport Of The Week | 65′ Aston Martin DB5

Classic Car Shipping IL to CA

Mid-August in sunny La Jolla, California, the Concourse d’Elegance was almost underway.  The spectacular event was close to ready – with one crucial puzzle piece missing.  The Aston Martin’s centerpiece beauty was sitting in Illinois.  The DB5 was in serious need of a classic car shipping company and of course, this pricey historic gem required an enclosed car transport – No questions asked. Let’s put it this way, if your bank account only has six digits then this car is not for you.

Movie buffs may recognize the 65′ Db5, this luxury grand tourer was driven by a living legend named Connery, Sean Connery.  First appearing in 007 Goldfinger the DB5 is well known for being a cinematic auto icon.  Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is credited with creating the superb design.  Standard on most DB5’s include wool pile carpets, twin fuel tanks, chrome wire wheels and a full leather cabin trim.

It only makes sense to have such an elegant piece of history at this show “The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of excellence. Automobiles and motorcycles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit and their style”

Our reliable classic auto shipping service made sure the DB5 was there to wow the crowd, and they were definitely wowed. The trip from Illinois to California was quick and simple. We were happy to be a part of this DB5’s history.

Enclosed Auto Transport of the Week | Batmobile

Enclosed Auto Transport FL to NY

NANANANANANANANANA Batmobile! Batman was in crisis mode, he had just spent a lovely weekend in the Gotham Islands with a beautiful woman and…What, why so serious? Of course it was with Vicky Vail.  Anyways, back to our story, the Batmobile was having some engine trouble and he needed it shipped ASAP to Gotham city.  Well, really New York City but let’s not be picky.  He needed the expertise of a reliable exotic auto transport service to come to the rescue (he also threatened to break our necks if we didn’t).

After hearing that we offered enclosed car shipping it was not really a question.  Now all we needed was the car’s info – This was no easy task, Batman likes to keep things private. Speaking on behalf of his car he just kept repeating “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.”After much interrogation and a promise to buy Batman some new tights he  eventually caved (excuse the pun). Deep down, the Keaton-mobile is comprised of a chevy V8  engine, modeled after a 1970 Corvette body and built on an Impala chassis.  Hey, look at that we just so happen to specialize in shipping Corvettes and Chevys.

What we found even more interesting was just the other day some dude Robin called about our enclosed car transport service.  He said he was about to purchase a car on Ebay for $620,00 and it had the exact same description. Strange, no? Probably just some wannabe Batman.

Since we are in the business of saving the world (or maybe just your car) we took care of business. As promised the car was delivered with our special “Door to Batcave” Guarantee.  The driver was very professional and delivered the car without any funny-business, he was no joker. Batman got exactly what he needed, a no hassle reliable auto transport service.

A week late Batman called to thank us but we couldn’t exactly hear what the quiet mumbler was saying “uhhhuhuhuh you uhuuhuh great job uhuhu break your neck uhuhuhuh” We just assumed he was happy.

Enclosed Car Transport of the Week-1947 International HC Pro Street

Enclosed Car Transport of the week – From Michigan to New York – 1947 International HC Pro Street Pickup

 

“I decided to ship my pro-street 1947 IHC pickup on an Enclosed Car Transport because it was too far to drive it, and it is far to valuable. I checked out many companies for this shipment, and decided on United Routes LLC to ship it Enclosed,  after phone conversations with Kasey. His professionalism, and pre-shipment concerns and promises were excellent. Based on this, I gave Kasey the move, despite having used other companies in the past. I’m very glad I did. The Enclosed transportation went flawlessly, and even faster than I was promised. United Routes picked up in Jackson, MI on a Saturday, and delivered to eastern Long Island, NY on Monday around 2pm.  Very fast, and the delivering carrier was excellent. I will use United Routes for any future Car Transport needs. As far as my truck is concerned…the pictures speak for themselves!” Thanks Kasey,

Cross-Country Moving Tips

Moving is one of the most stressful things we have to deal with in life. Moving is especially stressful when it’s a large scale move, like one across the country. If you’re about to embark on a large scale move, here are some tips to help you get there smoothly.

1) Before you start packing, take and inventory of your possessions. Think about the larger, heavier items that take up the most room and decide if you really need them.

2) If you have a vehicle, or more than one vehicle, you should contact car transport companies. Car transporting can make your move a lot easier by allowing you to relax instead of driving all the way there. It is also more economical to opt for car transporting because you’re saving on those road trip fees like gas, food, and lodging.

3) Research air far costs. You should look into booking far in advance to insure you get the best deal. In addition, find out how much it would cost to ship your items.

4) Finally, start packing. If you’re hanging on to old stuff that you don’t really need or use, consider getting rid of it to save room and money when it comes time to ship your boxes.
