About President & CEO, Steve Wells
In 1978, Steve moved to Texas. He then opened New World Vans, Trucks, and Specialty Vehicles here in Houston, Texas. He hired the best skilled craftsmen in the respective vehicle aftermarket and conversion world, and set out to make a name for his company. New World Vans & Trucks not only gained respect, not only for designing vans and autos for retail customers, sports figures, music personalities, and specialty auto dealers, but also because they contracted, designed, and produced commercial conversions for surveillance and law enforcement agencies.
Steve also designed custom production and promotional vehicles for radio, TV, and sports teams nationally. Another division of New World specialized in ballistic protection on customers' vehicles all over the world. In the process of designing bomb disposal units, Steve achieved yet another success. Attending the Starlight Military Training Center, Steve graduated with a coveted Ranger Certificate. Steve then began to pursue clients ranging from local police, S.W.A.T. teams, secret service, private security firms, fire departments, and specialty command vehicle applications. It became apparent that, getting these vehicles transported from state to state, and to overseas countries, transportation and shipping could be a logistical nightmare. With his reputation at stake for on time deliveries, Steve began to learn the vehicle shipping and logistics business quickly.
With the ever changing auto industry, Steve sold New World Vans and Trucks in 1999, and started New World Sports Products, which was a motorsport transportation and trailer company. This coincided with Steve's passion of racing off-road desert, motocross, and boats. Steve had also adjusted his sights on the high-end automobile industry. He has spent the last ten years in some form of high-end automobile and motorcycle sales industry. In this industry, Steve again found himself seeing an ever-increasing demand for automotive shipping, due to the wide-spread sales and purchasing of vehicles on the Internet by car dealers and individuals.
In 2010, New World Auto Transport was born. New World Auto Transport Logistics, LLC, or N.W.A.T., is a company designed to deliver white glove treatment door to door for shipping vehicles. N.W.A.T. offers personalized one on one communication to ensure that his client's relocation, or attendance at a special event, is not impugned with negligent transport delays and shipping blunders. We strive to offer the best service and process in the industry. With over 30 years of experience and business contacts, we guarantee our services, and will be there for all of your transport needs. If Steve can answer any questions or concerns you may have, please do not hesitate to call him directly, or one of his specialty agents. Our motto is "One on One Personal Touch" for those who value excellence.
