What Others Are Saying About Us

I recently moved to San Diego and needed to find a transporter. I have used Mike three times now and have had zero disappointments. He always answers the phone and is willing to get the job done and at a great price.

The car arrived in a very accessible space and the delivery by Eric, the driver, was made easily. Unfortunately, the car had to travel through some ice and snow storms, which caused a little delay. I was very pleased with the service and communications.

My experience with Metti International Vehicle Transporters was great. They shipped my car across the country and made it as smooth as possible. I would absolutely do it again and use this company because they know what they're doing.

Damage done in transit does not relieve the shipper of paying for transport service performed. Claims will be handled by the vehicle carrier and insurance companies.

Metti International offers door-to-door auto transport service where possible. However, there are instances that we cannot collect/deliver directly to the door due to the size of our auto carrier’s trucks. The size of your street may prohibit direct delivery to your door. Also, some towns and cities do not allow trucks on their residential streets. If the carrier cannot get to your door, he will deliver your vehicle to the next most convenient accessible location, such as the nearest major crossing street, a shopping mall or supermarket.

Please have a no more than 1/4 tank of fuel, remove all personal items from your vehicle and have it washed and cleaned so that the ensuing inspection is easily performed. If it is a convertible, T-top, sunroof, etc. make sure all openings are closed and prepared for changing weather. You can find additional tips on how to prepare your car for transport here.
