Auto Shipping on the Fourth of July
Auto shipping on the Fourth of July isn’t unheard of, of course. But the Fourth of July is a national holiday. It is a holiday that we celebrate with fireworks and barbecues and a distinct lack of work. Car shipping carriers are the same as us, and they want to celebrate as much as you do. This is why auto shipping on the Fourth of July can be difficult to find – no one wants to actually work on a day like this.
Of course, many of us have to, but if a carrier can avoid it he certainly will. Most of the time carriers will simply wait to pick up new freight until the holiday is over. Many more will take the entire weekend off, especially considering today is a Monday. This is not unheard of, but you should be aware of the slowdown the industry experiences around major holidays, including the Fourth. It’s the same for any holiday, really – Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July, even Memorial Day. You should keep this in mind in the future, too.
But don’t worry – most carriers will be back on the road in the next day or two, and there are always someone willing to pickup or deliver a vehicle despite it being a national holiday. We won’t make this blog post too long, but we do want to wish everyone a happy Fourth of July. Chances are you won’t be able to get a hold of a representative, either at your broker or a carrier himself.
