If you gotta be on the road, you might as well be on the road in style! While transporting cars for our customers, our drivers do need to take a break and relax. And what better way to relax than in your own private apartment on wheels! Just look at this place! It’s nicer than a lot of places I’ve lived in! Photo by Joel Bradshaw.
“Life on the Road” isn’t always beautiful scenery or interesting sights, sometimes it’s another great looking truck on the road. For example, this beaut. While transporting cars across the country, our driver Ron Kukus spotted this truck at a rest stop along the highway. What a great paint job for a great cause!
Shipping a car to California Will you be shipping a car to California in the near future? The Golden State is home to American mainstays: Hollywood, the Golden Gate Bridge, Venice Beach, some of the most beautiful beaches and mountain. From the huge metropolises of Los Angeles and San Francisco, to the agricultural communities in the San Joaquin Valley, to the mountain towns of the northern part of the state, California features a huge and diverse mix of towns/large cities. Thousands, if not millions of people relocate to California each year and it’s easy to see why. There are many reasons you may need to transport a car to California. Maybe you purchased a car online from a private party or a dealership in another state. Perhaps you’re moving across country for a new job. Maybe you want to send a car to a relative or as a gift, or maybe your kid is heading off to college in California and you want them to have a vehicle. Or you may be heading to the Golden State to escape the cold weather of winter in the northern parts of the western United States. Shipping a vehicle across the country can be costly, but if you weigh that against flying to pick up a car and the time and expense involved in driving it home, it is often worth it. Therefore, California auto transport is often the most economical choice. And transporting a car to California is often less stressful then… Read more »
Double Decker buses are most often associated with London, but when you’re traveling the highways of America delivering cars for J&S Transportation you never know what you’ll find on your travels. While delivering cars to Las Vegas, one of our drivers spotted this double decker bus at an auction yard. These buses are found all over the US and are used mainly as tour buses, taking tourists to points of interest in places like Las Vegas, New York, or Hollywood. This one looks like it’s in need of some TLC, but it’s still a cool vehicle. Photo by Sam Nixon.
Ship a car to Florida hassle free! Do you need to transport a car to or from Florida and don’t want to drive it there yourself? While people ship cars to and from Florida for the usual reasons (moving, relocating for a job, sending a child to college, etc), the busiest season for auto transport back and forth from the Sunshine State is the twice yearly migration of the snowbirds. Snowbird is a term describing people who head south for the winter to avoid the cold of the northern parts of the US, and then return home after winter has passed. Snowbird car transport season accounts for a majority of the traffic to and from Florida for auto hauling companies. In fact, it’s so busy, if you’re a snowbird you should book your auto transport to Florida at least a month before you want to go. Once September and October hit, most auto transporters are booked full. Florida is not called the sunshine state for nothing. The state features many fun things to do, both indoors and out. From the Disney World theme parks to the Everglades, this state has something for everyone. In fact, you may consider moving to Florida permanently, and if that’s the case, we can handle your car shipping needs. Door-to-Door Car Shipping to Florida J&S Transportation does door-to-door auto transport whenever possible. We only ask that you’re home when our transport truck driver arrives to load or offload your car. Our dispatchers and drivers will… Read more »

Every two years, Pandora Moths descend upon the Western United States in huge numbers. Why every two years? Well, that’s the extent of their life cycle. This picture is of downtown Portland, OR, where the moths congregated earlier this year. Photo by Kevin Davis.
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America was treated to an eclipse of the sun, and one of our drivers was lucky enough to be delivering cars within the Path of Totality in Idaho Fall, ID!. These two shots were taken at the same spot; one was before the eclipse began, the other as totality approached! While our drivers are dedicated to getting your car delivered quickly, this was the first total eclipse in North America in 38 years, so it’s no wonder everything halted during the event!
