DAS provides a variety of transport services for a complete range of vehicles, including cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, boats, RVs and more; for corporate relocation and commercial clients, as well as individual consumers, in the continental U.S. and around the world.
We request that you schedule your move as soon as possible to ensure that your car is moved within the time frame which best meets your schedule. If an immediate pick up is necessary, we can arrange for your vehicle to be picked up within 24 hours.
DAS’ vehicle transport services aid the fight against global warming when compared to the alternative of customers driving their vehicles from origin to destination. Transportation is the biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S., more than factories or homes. *By transporting rather than driving an average of over 100,000 vehicles per year, DAS is able to save 2,926,000 gallons of fuel and create a 38,216,000 pound reduction of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere annually.
