Is wintertime car shipping safe ?
Year-round auto movers have plenty of expertise operating cold weather routes. These Carriers go above and beyond to transit northern routes safely. However, this commitment to safety can cause some delays, and the customer will be informed if the driver needs to change the route while on the way.
If you can, avoid the holiday rush.
There is typically a surge in vehicle inventories ready for shipment starting during the last week of December. Although many customers prefer to schedule their automobiles to come as early as possible in the new year, carrier capacity typically plummets during this time. Drivers typically take time off over the holidays because they have families as well. Accordingly, there are a lot more vehicles than there is room for on a carrier, and a balance is only really reached by the end of January or even the beginning of February, depending on any particularly severe weather that may be present at that time.
The majority of affordably priced vehicles that are departing and arriving in densely populated locations will have been dispatched by mid-February. Due to the industry's bidding-based structure, more expensive vehicles will arrive first and more affordable vehicles soon after. Low cost cars might take longer and will be more vulnerable to future market changes brought on by storms and other changes in supply and demand.
As a general rule, anticipate paying more, not less, for the persistent Holiday-Rush Shipper. When Carriers are few and working conditions are difficult, your best bet is to provide a larger range payment for a reservation.
One other thing: Your car will become filthy!
Once more, those of you who are accustomed to icy weather are also familiar with the state of the roads. On an open trailer, there is little the trucker can do to stop the beautiful road slush from getting on your automobile. On newer automobiles, it shouldn't harm the paint or cause any other issues of the sort, but when it gets to you, your car won't be shiny and new.
Therefore, if you need to ship a car in the winter, give us a call, see how much it will cost to ship cars in the winter, and place your order with Rapid Auto Shipping! Whatever your destination, we will move your car promptly, safely, and damage-free!
