A Decade of Outstanding Delivery and Exponential Growth

Montway Auto Transport has grown to one of the largest auto transport companies in the country in less than ten years!



2006

Foundation

Montway Auto Transport started as a basic brokerage, shipping to the east and west coasts for local dealerships and auctions. Mike M. and Galya S. started the company from their modest home office.

First Contract

Our breakthrough came with Luxury Motors in Chicago, the company's first client as an independent transport management company. With this partnership, Montway's reputation was established within inbound and outbound shipping to customers.

First Trucks

Two trucks were acquired and set the foundation that would eventually become Montway Auto Carriers in 2009.

2007

Growth

2007 saw the company racing in a pivotal direction. Montway added four new trucks and established an advanced website with tons of user-friendly features. We began managing two hot routes - overnight deliveries from Chicago, IL. to New Jersey and to Philadelphia, PA.

First Employee

The company hired its first full-time employee to help sustain the financial side of the rapidly expanding business.

2008

Gaining Customers

We cruised into 2008 with an increased customer base. Delivering hundreds of cars safely and with expert care, established the company as one of the country's top reliable nationwide shippers.

Growing Fleet

As orders grew, so did we - eleven trucks joined our division.

Growing Staff

As deliveries for private customers to California and New York increased, we added a Transport Coordinator to the constantly growing team.

2009

New Website

With our new website and transport management system, customers could calculate quotes in real time and book directly online. Both were revolutionary ideas at a time when most transport companies were more focused on sales than optimizing user experience and customer satisfaction.

Transporting a Struggling Nation

As the nation struggled with transition from vibrant economy to recession, many transport companies suffered the storm alongside other industries. Keeping pace with the shifting economy and job market, Montway helped people relocating out of states hit hard by the recession. The company surpassed many established competitors by providing adequate pricing and superior service to those who needed it most.

Carrier Division

As our customer base continued to grow, several independent owner-operators with car haulers approached us, requesting direct dispatch services. We decided to start a motor carrier division under the same brand - Montway Auto Carriers (MAC).

Top Reputation

Review ratings skyrocketed, demonstrating dedication to high-quality service and customer care. This year established the company as the top-rated auto transporter, a reputation still maintained to this day.

2010

Major Moves

Steady growth marked Montway's first few years of development. 2010 was no exception, with over 5,000 moves all across the country that year. The company had became a serious brand that customers looked for.

Leader on uShip

We became the number one auto transport service provider on uShip - the world's largest transportation marketplace. uShip also adopted Montway's vehicle shipping rate calculator on their car shipping section.

First Office

Our family grew as well, relocating to an office space to accommodate the addition of two new sales agents and an accountant.

First Office Manager

A customer service and sales expert with experience from Walmart and Kroger, Dimitre K was the perfect fit for the the job.

Enclosed Trucks

Our carrier division, MAC added two enclosed trucks to their fleet. That way we met the special demand for shipping luxury, sports, exotic, vintage, and classic cars.

Considering customer convenience, the company relocated to a new office close to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport for easy drop-off and pick-up access for customers flying in and out of the area.
