North, East, West, South – vehicle transport, house to house.

After decades in the vehicle shipping business, DAS has delivered all kinds of vehicles to all kinds of places. Farm equipment from one farm to another. Trailers from the Great Plains are not in Kansas anymore. Houseboats from Lake Tahoe to the bayou. SUVs from Savannah to Springfield. Muscle cars from Muscle Shoals to Muscle Beach. You name it, we’ve probably moved it. From Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon. From Biloxi to Billings. And back again. Just like Johnny Cash – we’ve been everywhere, man.

We take care of auto transport so you can be on your way.

Of course, a handful of cities stand out as our regular destinations, where we deliver often on behalf of clients just like you. Maybe you’re moving to these metropolises because that’s where the work is.

Or maybe because that’s where the retirement is?

You might be moving for a season or a lifetime. To enjoy the climate or the culture, the scenery, the weather, or all of the above. No matter what your reasons, we’re happy to help you get there – or anywhere – and on your way.

The top destination for vehicle shipment is Los Angeles, California.

The City of Angels.

Maybe you’re taking Nat King Cole’s famous advice for getting your kicks, following that famous highway, Route 66, down from St. Louis, all the way to LA. Or you’re dreaming about Sheryl Crow’s LA, watching the sun to come up over the Santa Monica Boulevard. No matter which genre is your jam, you’ve probably got a favorite song or three about Los Angeles and Southern California, where it never rains, as you probably know from another song.

According to Discover Los Angeles, LA is always booming. If the LA six-county area were a state, it’s population, of 21 million in 2011, would surpass all states in size, except its own and Texas. People from around the world call LA home, representing at least 140 countries and speaking more than 85 different languages. With 75 miles of coastline and “perfect” weather, it’s no wonder that tourism and hospitality represent one out of every ten jobs in the county. And no wonder that the county’s economy ranks 21st in the world when compared to the top 25 countries.

The second most common location for vehicle shipments – San Francisco.

Just up the coast, you’ll find the home of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay, trolley cars, postcard views of colorful row houses lining steep hills, Alcatraz, Chinatown, and Telegraph Hill. With all these sights to see, it’s not hard to believe that tourism is the leading industry in the San Fran economy, according to Forbes. Their metropolitan statistical area (MSA) includes San Mateo and Redwood City and is near to the world-renowned tech capital of Silicon Valley, making technology their second biggest industry.

Further north, Seattle is the third most common city for auto shipment.

Seattle, known for coffee houses, grunge music, and at least one famous Tom Hanks movie, is home to Microsoft,, and T-Mobile US on the tech side and REI, the outdoor sporting goods outfitter, on the earthy side. With the Rocky Mountains on one hand and the Pacific Ocean on the other, it’s clear that Seattle’s got something for everybody.

Rounding out the top 7 cities for vehicle shipment…

From the West Coast, we move eastward to the Midwest and two of our country’s thriving inland port cities: Chicago, Illinois, and Dallas, Texas.

Chi-town has long been called the Crossroads of America and, indeed, with its seat on the Great Lake Michigan, it’s accessible as an international port from the Atlantic through the Locks at Sault Ste. Marie.

But, Dallas? An inland port? Sure enough. The North Central Texas Council of Governments, working in public-private partnership with corporations like Tesla, has turned the Dallas-Fort Worth area into the nation’s premier logistics and distribution center. In fact, much of the International Inland Port of Dallas (IIPOD) has even been designated a foreign trade zone.

All the way to the East Coast.

Because you didn’t seriously think a list of top cities wouldn’t include the Big Apple, did you? New York, New York. The Crossroads of the World. And the sixth most common destination for auto transport.

Follow the Intracoastal Waterway south, almost to Papa Hemingway’s stomping grounds, the Florida Keys. Stop in Miami and send us a postcard from the seventh top city for vehicle shipment. Wish you were here, huh?

Wherever you are, we can help you on your way. Wherever you’re going.

If you’re ready to have us draw up a free, and instant, custom price quote to handle your upcoming auto transport needs, whether it’s to one of these hot destinations or elsewhere, all you have to do is fill out the form on this page.
