Exclusive service

If you have very tight timeframe, Exclusive Service is the answer.

With Exclusive Service use we contract the entire trailer just for your shipment, and not shared with anyone else. This prevents theft and speeds up the shipment since no other shipments will be loaded in the trailer. With direct delivery from pickup to destination, it is the fastest way to move and allows you to set the dates on pick up and deliveries.
