THE TRANSPORT PROFESSIONALS
Lakewood Transport & Transport is one of the only companies in Western Washington that provides Auto Terminal services for all the major national Auto Transporters and Brokers. National Auto Transporters to independent carriers who have found they make more money by keeping their trucks rolling, we handle it all. Let us fight the traffic, find those out of the way addresses, navigate the single lane, low clearance dead end streets, and deliver or pick-up around your customers schedules. You only make money when your trucks are rolling. We are a 24/7 auto terminal; a gate fee may be required for any afterhours drops or pickups.
Our location is ideal for transporters. We are less one mile from the intersections of I-5 and S.R. 512 (access to I-90). We are just south of the major Puget Sound traffic patterns; your trucks are not bogged down in traffic jams or city traffic. We have a ‘Transport Only’ loading and unloading zone that is three carriers wide and is drive in, drive out. You will not have your trucks out in the street trying to load and unload. Make 2 right turns, at lights, on 4 lane roads and you are back on the highway. Next door to our location is Lakes Truck Collision, capable of taking care of any of your repair needs. Across the street is Commercial refueling at the Lakewood Industrial Park. We deliver to all of Western Washington including the ports for Alaska, Hawaii, and Asia, we also go to Portland and north to the Canadian border. We will make trips to Eastern Washington, Idaho, and Montana upon request. We have 50 state transport authority, MC 344898, and are registered with the Federal Highway Administration, US DOT 475129. We have five separate secure storage yards capable of holding 430 vehicles, along with inside storage for 45 vehicles. We tag all of the vehicles in our yard with tracking number and destination / carrier, coupled with our corresponding key tags, your drivers will always know they are getting the correct vehicles and keys.
We understand that superior customer service is the only way to survive in this industry. Let’s face it, anyone can move cars, the only thing that sets you apart is service and price. We provide a level of service that in this industry is unexpected, but, should be exactly what you expect. Your cars are moved quickly, efficiently, and damage free. We work with your customers schedules, pick up at the local park & ride (which has a direct bus from the airport), take your customer to a local rental car agency and help your customers with the relocation process. If your current terminal does not provide this kind of service, you need to change to Lakewood Transport because next time your customer moves, he will choose a company that gives him that kind of service.
Your dispatchers will be thrilled with our friendly, convenient service. Our phones are always answered, no answering machines. We don’t say ‘no’; need a same day pick-up or drop off? the only version of ‘no’ you will hear is ‘no problem’. We update you via phone, Email or fax, your choice, and immediately fax you origin inspections and signed delivery receipts when our drivers return. Have a car that you can’t move? give us a call, we have contact with many carriers we can probably find one for you on that inop 55 Dodge Royal you need moved to Minot, North Dakota. We can immediately Email pictures of any transport damaged vehicles to your claims or quality assurance departments. We provide convenient zip code based pricing so you will know costs before you quote or book. Our prices are the best in the area – shouldn’t you be paying less and getting better service at the same time? Your competitors are!
We have the cleanest, safest, and most up to date equipment. We use wheel straps so your customers don’t get nervous about chains being in the vicinity of their pride and joy.
