Acumen Driving Specialists LLC
Drive-Away & Transport Services
Acumen Driving Specialists was built on two truths: We love driving (day after day), and we're good at it. Some driving situations require skill, licensing, focus and stamina few people have.
"Drive-Away Services" is a segment of the transport industry where a commercially-licensed professional drives customer-owned vehicles. There are several situations in which paying Acumen
to drive your vehicle is a better choice than doing it yourself or having it hauled. The following are examples with which we already have experience, but if your exact needs are not here, please contact me today; I'm always looking to add to my resume.
As real estate becomes an unattainable dream in America, Mexico's Baja Peninsula is booming. The 1000 mile road to La Paz and Cabo, though, is not to be taken lightly, and for a few reasons is often called "Via de los Muertos" ...the road of death. For safety, Acumen rolls with a 2-man team, one of whom is a dual citizen Baja California native fluent in Spanish. We are also familiar with the extensive regulations necessary to cross the border with your things, the different way drivers drive in Mexico, the safest places to stop for the night, and other valuable info.
Large Vehicle Drive-Away
Some vehicles are too big to put on trailers designed for CARS. You can put them on an 18-wheeler flatbed / lowboy ... but you should be sitting down when you see their PRICES! Once you regain consciousness call Acumen. Adding a few thousand miles to the odometer is no big deal, and after all new fresh fluids and premium fuel, highway miles are actually really good for your engine.
EXPEDITED & LOADED Vehicle Drive-Away
Sometimes you need a vehicle delivered cross-country ASAP. Transporters take (on average) 15-20 days Coast to Coast as they zig-zag across the country dropping off and picking up other cars. Importantly they will NOT allow any cargo! Consider what a car-load of stuff would cost to ship via established Parcel shippers...$1000 - $2000. It is almost a no-brainer to pay Acumen to DRIVE your packed vehicle across the US in 3-5 days...the cargo is FREE.
When each daily load is worth a LOT of money, when roads from the farms are winding, narrow, mountain-roads, and at harvest-time when everyone else is working 14 hour days, 6 days per week, it is paramount that your drivers have a proven record of performance without incidents. Acumen is well acquainted with Agricultural Industry best practices and we love the country.
The #1 killer of Americans overseas is not terrorism, disease, or crime. Most years it's car crashes. In countries that drive on the left, a momentary lapse into your regular driving habits can ruin your trip...or your life. I've logged 20k miles in 5 countries that drive on the "wrong" side in Right-Hand drive vehicles. I clean up surprisingly well, and can be your executive assistant. I love to travel, so my quote might pleasantly surprise you.
