Direct Express Auto Transport Reviews

Excellent transport service. I used the mid-range option, and, as promised, my car was picked up within 4-5 days. We shipped New Mexico to Maine. Our moving van was packed on the 26th of July, the car was picked up on July 30. We got the car August 3rd, before any of our other belongings. The transport driver was fantastic. Thanks, Roman! The car, because it wasn't on a covered transport, was pretty dusty, but was otherwise in perfect condition from when I had left it. I will certainly be recommending this company to others.

Great service and quick response. Jessie handled our order very well. We would definitely use Direct Express Auto Transport again. Re: 290230

I have used Direct Express Auto twice now to ship my vehicle from the east coast to the west coast and back again. The prices have been excellent and I have not encountered any issues with the carriers or drivers. My most recent delivery was from Vegas to Myrtle Beach in 4 days! Ashley answered my questions and explained the pickup and delivery process. It was a very smooth process.
- Chris Gessner

These guys booked me with AUTO LINE EXPRESS, They are THE WORST company to deal with. They came 2 days late after they already called me and gave me a pickup date and I took off work for both days waiting for a call. It was the weekend so they were closed. I had to email them and finally got a email saying the driver was in another state and would be there 6-8 hours later. He wasn't he didn't show up till 10 hrs later. He didn't even call 3 hrs before to give me a heads up like they said he would Don't book with them. They don't use reliable companies.

As you might imagine, anyone who is going to put their vehicle in someone else’s care should do some research on the companies that they are considering. These companies that transport vehicles all have some bad reviews. I went with this one as I had a friend who had used them several times with relative success. What these companies really do , is put your vehicle (job) out on a message board that gives drivers the opportunity to put together their own route with multiple pick-ups and drop-off along the way. This makes it economically more feasible to transport your vehicle, as you are effectively sharing the costs with others. A bad driver can torpedo a good run for one of these companies. The important thing for the company to do is to be relatively honest with the clients and not promise what can’t be delivered. The important thing for the customer to do is to not expect amazing service for an extremely low price. Look at the prices you’re being quoted and don’t go the lowest, because it’s probably not real. I had a good experience with this one and would recommend them based on my limited experience.

I had two vehicles transported from California to Arizona and both vehicle arrived safe and sound. Overall this was a very pleasant experience, from the initial call to the driver who made the delivery, customer service was awesome. Thank you.
- Mr.Franco

Had a great experience using direct express auto transport. I had not shipped a car before, the communication was great from start to finish. I had some questions about the process and payment, which were responded to quickly. I was provided my drivers info, who kept me informed of my pickup time and drop off. Everything was very smooth and professional. Would use again.
- Kevin Smiley

They deserve 6 stars! Amazing service. Zero worries. They brought my 2 non running project cars in pretty much 2 days from Oregon to New Mexico. The driver (Thomas) was answering my texts every time I had a question. I tried dealing with 9 other different AutoTransport companies and they kept playing games and lying about the price estimates/dates. Direct Express Auto Transport earned my respect and business in the future. I highly recommend upgrading to “Rush” when transporting a car from remote locations to remote locations. I am so happy! These people saved my Thanksgiving! (I was going to drive myself during the holiday to pick up the cars, but I found them instead). Thank you again!

My experience with Direct Express Auto Transport: no complaints. Fast turnaround time, streamlined process. Great price as well. However, the towing company they contracted out was a headache to deal with. They kept saying they were going to pick up the car, then didn't. Then they kept saying they were going to drop it off by some date, then didn't because they confused my shipment with another. I left explicit instructions on handling the car because of the delay, which never got communicated to the driver. When it finally arrived, the battery was dead; I'm sure because the driver left some light on. To his credit, he spent about 20 minutes trying to jump it with me before he gave up. Communication with this company was unprofessional & Informal, & full of mostly verbal promises. Nothing malevolent or rude, but perhaps more clueless. Direct Express Auto Transport should consider cutting out Precision Auto as a subcontractor.
- Kevin Luong

The day after I asked for the vehicle to be picked up, it was! Seems like the mid tier and expedited tier get the quickest response. I've used Direct Express twice and the vehicle arrived both times without issue. I also appreciate that a live person can be reached if you have questions.
- Ted Marena

I selected D.E.A.T. from a long list of potentials that'll bring my car to me back East here from the west coast in Oregon. Everything is handled exceptionally well and stress free, just as I had hoped for. The car was picked up a day early and the car was even delivered two days earlier than expected, of course they could have held the car longer. The biggest companies like this one are usually the best and already have established business contacts which sets them way ahead of other small start-up similar businesses, who are usually just looking for secret ways to rip you off by nickel and dimeing you to death. I only had to pay what I was quoted, period. Try to leave a tip for your truck driver as I forgot to do just that and I feel terrible about it. He was so nice and helpful and would gladly listen to everything I had to say quickly addressing any concerns. They deserve a little something extra, just pretend you were buying them lunch on the way to deliver your vehicle to you personally, that's kind of like a friend in need is a friend in deed. I'm very proud and happy to give 5-star review to those who are deserving of it. Otherwise I just usually will not review or survey because I dislike being a negative person. You are guaranteed to get the best quickest deal out there, period.

I arranged for my car to be transported from Sidney OH to Austin TX. The car was picked up in time by the driver. The driver was very helpful and carefully loaded the car. The car was delivered in two days to my home safely

My wife and I recently used Direct Express Auto Transport to transport out car from NJ to SC. We used the standard mode of transportation with an open carrier. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received. Th car was picked up 3 days after it was made available and was delivered 2 days later. Communications throughout the process was excellent. When the car arrived in SC the car was in excellent condition. We couldn’t be happier with the service that we received and the price was competitive. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
- Steve D

Overall, excellent! I told them when my vehicle will be ready for pickup and the next day from ready date I got my transport information. The transport company called me the same day and picked up my vehicle the very next day. They took photos of my vehicle and delivered when they said which was 3 days later....would use them again if I need my vehicle shipped.
- Tanya

My experience with Direct Express Auto Transport was exactly as advertised! I had no clue how to ship a car I had purchased from my dad in Portland Oregon to Tulsa Oklahoma. I researched online and found Direct Express. Everything they had online was exactly how it went. My delivery was done professionally and on time right to my house! If I ever have to ship a car again, then I will only use Direct Express Auto Transport. My thanks to all who work there!
- Bryan Turner

I shipped my vehicle through Direct Express Auto Transport with no issues. They delivered my vehicle directly to my residence in a very timely fashion. I would use Direct Express Auto Transport again.
- Mark

First time shipping a vehicle and Direct Express Auto Transport made it very easy and fast. Not to mention the great low price they offered me. Definitely would use again.
- Anthony

Direct Express Auto Transport was hands down the best transport company that I have used. Had the car within two days and they had top notch communication.
- Brian Carroll

Car Transport From Austin To Denver We put in our order on Friday and our luck the car was picked up a few hours later and delivered on Wednesday morning. The driver was nice and called in advance about the delivery time. He was courteous and handled our car with care. I would use direct express auto transport again in the future.
- Paul

Transport was great. Just don’t rely on the 10 day window. Make sure you read the fine print. You can pay up front the deposit but they tell you in the email that you have to have cash or money order at the delivery location so make sure where you are delivering it has the money when delivered. Customer service was great too, but give yourself time because it’s not guaranteed and they tell you to pay more, which is still not a guarantee. They like to say 80% and tell you nothing is guaranteed as repetition to cover themselves. I gave it a 4 because I tried to push the envelope and then their miscommunication and excuses (read above) aggravated me but I should not have procrastinated and rely solely on a business for guarantees. No guarantees in life but death and taxes haha. I would use them again and recommend them to anyone that was looking for a shipping company.

Best Transport Company and Staff I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Direct Express Auto Transport has done a fantastic job handling the shipment of another car I purchased. I’ve utilized Direct Express many times throughout the past several years and they have never let me down. This time, I purchased a flawless Mustang Mach 1 from a private seller in Virginia and wanted an enclosed trailer with a very careful driver. I booked my reservation online and received a White Glove Delivery in addition to an extremely fast time frame. My car was picked up on a Thursday morning and was delivered to me in Illinois the next evening. The delivery company Direct Express paired me with was absolutely perfect. To this day, I only use and only recommend Direct Express Auto Transport. Regardless of enclosed or open shipping, I couldn’t ask for any better service or a more fair price. Well done Jessie and the Team at Direct Express Auto Transport.
- Tony K

Great experience! Communication was on point, no damage to my vehicle, made my deposit on a Friday and my car was picked up on Monday. Also arrived a day early! Highly recommend for any of your auto transport needs.
- Ashley Bernard

Very satisfied with transport company you got for us. Very professional and friendly. It was a pleasure doing business with you and the company that transported vehicle. Thank you.
- Jim

Got my quote right away and everything was done through email. The deliver and driver was great. But the service itself was bad. Never got my $20 refund for the survey/review and requested me to write more review.
- Unhappy customer

Had to get my daughter's car home from Florida where she was attending school quickly due to the Covid-19 virus. Called Direct Express on Wednesday 3/25 and her car was picked up on 3/28 and deliver safe and sound to us here in RI on 3/31. I am very pleased with this company and will definitely be using them again when she goes back to school in August (if we survive this craziness!) Thanks so much for all your help! 🙂
- Jeanine Turner

Direct Express Auto Transport transported my car from MA to CA. I couldn't be happier with the service I received. The car was picked up only 2 days after it was made available and delivered 9 days later. When the car arrived to CA, the car was in excellent condition. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again!
- Katherine H Beers

Excellent customer service. I would absolutely use 2A Transportation again. They took extra special car of my vehicles.
- Ron

I had a wonderful experience with direct express auto transport. The initiation of the order was simple and did not take long. The transport company made contact with the seller of the car that I was purchasing the same day. The seller commented how professional the transport contractor seemed on the phone. They pick the car up the next day and again they were very professional and they did do diligence of the condition of the car by taking several photos before they even started to move the car. The car showed up a day and a half early. The contractor was very friendly and very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed my experience. This is the second time I have had a car transported in an enclosed trailer and the next time I purchase a car for myself, if it happens to be out of state, I’ll definitely use direct express auto transport. I forgot to mention that I received three other quotes from transport companies and they were from $600-$1200 more for an enclosed transport.
- Jared

I was hopeful about using this company based on the reviews, but ended up disappointed. My earliest ship date was August 2nd. I called on August 7th to get an update on the status and was told that I had to just wait. I asked if I should change my address to another location, perhaps closer to an interstate, and was told it wouldn't make a difference. On the 13th, I found a company with a quicker turnaround and called to cancel at Direct Express. I was then told that changing the address would help. Too little, too late.
- Tabitha Reefer

The process was simple and easy. They had great customer service, provided by Jessie, and my whole shipment, order #22****, was delivered without a problem.
- Ronak A

I had a great experience with Direct Express. My order number was 231409 and Jessica was great with explaining the entire process, timelines, etc. as this was the first time I’d used a vehicle transport service. I was a bit nervous about it because it is a waiting game for your car to arrive but the communication about arrival time was sufficient. I’d definitely use them again.
- Morganne B

Great service picked up car early and Remone delivered early. Jessie scheduled and handled transport wonderfully. Will use from now on.
- Frank R.

My driver was very professional and courteus. I felt assured that my car was in good hands. Andre provided me with updates throughout the process. My car was picked up and delivered during the times it was promised. Order #232479 Customer service representative was Jessie

Great customer service, communication and all around reliable. Would recommend if you like good prices and quality service
- Jermaine J

Service was impeccable. Jessie handled everything and stayed in touch with me through pickup and delivery. Order #233229 Criswell Acura - Lamont
- Criswell Acura

Fantastic service - FL to CA in 5 days, kept informed of progress the entire way. Great price. Will use again with no hesitation.
- James F

This was my first time using Direct Express and I definitely will be using again and recommending for others in the future. My representative Jessica made everything very comfortable and easy to follow up with throughout the whole process. It was stated that it could take up to 10 days for me to receive my vehicle but in reality it only took 2 days. Also the driver/transporter contact me to keep me up to date with his ETA as well as responded to all my messages when I had a question! I was so happy with all of the positive results, and way more comfortable with transporting a vehicle now. Well at least only through Direct Express!
- Anthony T.

Great service and quick too! Within a couple of days of my order, a carrier was assigned. The carrier picked up the car within a day and delivered a day ahead of schedule. I will use them again for sure.
- Thais

I had a Ram 1500 non running shipped from Florida to California. It took a short time of less that 10 minutes before a carrier accepted my truck. A week later in was in California. Very happy.
