Transporting cars can take you off the major highways and onto the smaller highways and byways of the US. These roads can present their own challenges to our auto transport drivers, especially in winter. For example, this picture sent in by one of our drivers of US Route 12. Photo by Danny Lindstrom.
Life on the road for J&S Transportation’s drivers isn’t all auctions, dealership, and deliveries. Sometimes it’s a nice break from the auto transport biz, and winter, all at the same time. While the rest of us were suffering through yet another deep freeze in the middle of winter, one of our drivers sent us this picture of his view lounging on a beach in Florida! Photo by David Maxwell
