About CLR

CLR Auto Transport’s goal is not to be “the best in the business”. That kind of marketing lingo is both expected... and self-serving. The defining goals of the CLR experience are SPEED, PREDICTABILITY and PROTECTION to the customer. Getting your vehicle where it is supposed to be, in the time frame demanded, in the same or better condition, is our sole focus. By accomplishing this, becoming “the best in the business” should be the logical outcome. To that end, we are happy to provide customer references ... the true and only measure of “good, better and best”.

CLR Auto Transport (Cars, Logistics, Relocation) is a fully licensed and insured auto transport business. We operate nationwide, relocating vehicles for corporate and commercial fleets, government agencies and private individuals. Professional drive away service, truck carrier service and vehicle storage service are all specialty services at CLR. We’re proud to be an employee-owned and operated company.

CLR Auto Transport is strategically located, with our headquarters in Merrillville, Indiana. A glance at the nation’s map will show this area - the greater Calumet region - is the nation’s transportation hub. Just 35 miles from downtown Chicago, CLR provides easy access to major transportation facilities, including interstate highways, major airports, rail and bus terminals. Additionally, our proximity to Chicago guarantees convenient access to all necessary support services.
