Our History

The first motorcycle courier and messenger service in the San Fernando Valley!

Founder Douglas Kingsbury at Speed! Amstar Express was established  in 1982 by Douglas Kingsbury at the age of 23.

Donning full race leathers, helmet, boots and gloves, Doug became a motorcycle courier on his 1975 Yamaha RD250,  1969 Harley Davidson and 1975 Ducati motorcycles and quickly earned the respect of Attorneys who needed court filings completed quickly and travel agencies who needed a reliable way to get travel tickets to clients any traffic conditions.

With all of that hands-on experience, Mr. Kingsbury learned the importance of on-time delivery and the critical problems that a missed deadline could create. Then, as now, he knew many of his clients on a first-name basis and to him, they were more than just a name on a delivery slip.

Today, Amstar Express Inc. replaces the old California Motor Couriers name due to Mr. Kingsbury's life-long patriotism and the continued expansion of services offered by Amstar Express. Things have changed in many ways at Amstar Express since 1982.  We are now a full service messenger, courier and attorney support service with many services available 24 hours a day. 365 days a year.

Amstar Express now delivers almost anything and offers attorney support services nationwide!

We have the experience to handle the delivery needs of virtually any type of business or private party. Our fleet includes trucks and vans for large items or multiple parcels, cars for delivering smaller items up to a few boxes.

Our order taking, dispatching and billing systems are fully computerized and can be customized to fit your needs. All of our drivers and riders are 'employees' of Amstar Express and uniformed, two-way equipped, professionally trained and fully insured.

Mr. KIngsbury has watched Amstar Express grow through the years but has never forgotten the great feeling of a job well done.
