Our Story

Showtime Transportation was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: To Offer celebrities & Everyday people Auto Transportation services at a revolutionary price. While giving back a share of our profits to children of South Florida and throughout the Caribbean.

Chris was born in Kingston, Jamaica where he discovered his interests in cars and built the foundation of his work ethic and sense of fairness. His mother left for America to find a job, and once she saved up enough money she flew her children over to live with her in New York City. Within a short span of time, he started to excel beyond academic expectations and skipped two grade levels. When summertime came, he would go visit his father who owned an auto transportation company. From a young age, Chris was intrigued by the family business and helped with fixing up the trucks, loading them up, and familiarizing himself with the business. Until it was time to go back to school. Fast forward to his second summer of college, he took a visit to South Florida to become a certified transporter and passed the test with flying colors. Within a few weeks, he transitioned from an engineering major to a full-time truck driver, traveling to different cities and delivering clients’ vehicles as a new driver for his father’s company.

Within 5 years he began to build relationships and ship cars with celebrities such as Sean Combs (Diddy), Shaquille O’Neal, and Master P. More importantly, he met his wife and had his first-born, followed by two more children. In search of a better work-life balance, he transitioned from being a truck driver to the CEO and founder of Showtime Transportation in 2005.

On October 27, 2020, Chris was T-boned in a brutal car accident which left him in critical condition. While the odds were stacked against him, he was able to recover and get back on his feet just as sharp as before. Now that he has a second shot at life, he is back on his grind and living in his purpose. As a veteran in the industry and a leader of his company, he is dedicated to building long-term relationships with his V.I.P clients and creating a positive shipping experience from your first quote to the delivery of your vehicle.
