Inspections On The Road

Always on the lookout for ways to improve the auto shipping experience for our customers, Diy launched our Inspection Services Division to provide our customers with a reliable inspection before they buy online.

Diy Transport launched the Diy Portal for dealerships, car auctions, moving companies, and other frequent shippers. The portal allows users to post their own shipments to loadboards through Ebot, automate load bidding, and ship multiple cars at a discount.
Shortly after the new website launch, Diy Transport launched Ebot, the virtual broker. Ebot allows those who are familiar with the industry to truly Do It Yourself and save money. By posting your shipment to Ebot, the money that would normally go to the broker goes right back into your pocket

The Future of Auto Transport

After bringing in our first 5 employees, we acquired our first official office space to accomodate the growing business.
The company moved north, relocating to Boardman, Ohio.
Diy Transport started out with just CEO Eric Ray and one employee operating out of a home office in Miami, Florida. They focused on learning the best practices for shipping cars and filling the technology gaps in the industry.
