Chevrolet Corvette

Found these guys on the internet. While most everyone else was charging twice as much. Tony charged what I felt was a small fee compared to everyone else. His rates were fair and very competitive. I went with him right away. He had a driver in place and ready to make the move that same day.

Porsche Cayenne GTSdrive

I was super impressed with Show Time Transportation and their process for auto transport. First of all, it was easy, I started with an online quote and called later to discuss my options. Everyone I talked to was very helpful being it was my first time shipping my car. I’m glad I found these guys/gals and will recommend them, thanks again.

Mercedes-Benz GLS 580

Show Time Transportation was incredibly helpful, responsive, and patient during the entire process. I was having difficulties shipping a vehicle out of Orlando and reached out to STT in a panic. They calmly talked me through every step even before I had agreed to ship with him. Even with small delays, he was promptly given status updates. Would 100% ship again with STT.

As a reminder, please be aware of companies that give you prices that seem to good to be true, as this is usually where you experience a trade-off in customer service or vehicle transportation. While we price competitively we know that our prices are fair to those of the industry.

Ship Your Car To And From Vacation​

More than a million snowbirds migrate to hotspots such as Florida, Arizona, and California every year. Many of them are Retirees and Seniors seeking to take advantage of snowbird transportation services because having their car gives them the freedom to enjoy the warm weather once they reach their destination.

Consider the benefits of shipping your car in comparison to the alternatives:

  • Travel Safer – Winter weather can be quite frigid and uncomfortable to deal with. Wintertime travel can be very risky, roads can get slippery and it can become difficult to see. Drastic changes in weather can make some routes dangerous to take, slower to use, or even impossible to use. Flying is much safer than driving and less stressful.

  • Travel Faster – When summertime begins to transition into the winter season, snowbirds get eager to take flight. Flying gets you to your destination in a matter of hours with all of your luggage. It makes traveling much safer, and rather than having to spend long hours behind the wheel you can spend your time doing something a little more important such as relaxing. While we deal with your vehicle.

  • Travel Cheaper – When you drive you have to give your time, energy, peace, and pay for any road trip-related costs such as meals, gas, lodging, wear and tear on your car, and tolls. Transporting your car reduces the fee that you pay with your mind, body, and pockets. It’s also much more cost-efficient in comparison to renting a car while you are away.

When the driver is within a reasonable distance they will contact the person responsible for handing off your car.

Before the driver loads your car onto the truck, they will examine the car and complete a Bill of Lading and Vehicle Inspection Report. That both of you will sign and receive a copy of.

Once the driver starts getting near your delivery location they will call the point of contact that you have given them for drop-off.

Together they will use their Bill of Landing and Vehicle Inspection Report to reinspect the car upon drop-off. Where the car will likely be a little dirty from being on an open trailer but overall it should be in the same condition that it was picked up in. The driver is trained to transport your car without damaging it, cars rarely get damaged during the transportation process. . For perspective, brand new car dealerships ship most of their cars on open trailer trucks.

If damage does occur, you must report it upon delivery and note it on the Bill of Landing and Vehicle inspection Report. Regardless, you need to pay the carrier the balance owed for the shipment for services provided because nobody can prove the damage occurred upon delivery.
For this reason, you and the driver must sign the inspection report, at the bare minimum you sign the inspection report. Claims cannot be processed by the insurance company if they are not noted at the time of delivery. We recommend always taking photos before pick up and after drop off to support any claims of damages in the rare scenario that they occur.
