The Basics of Snowbird Car Shipping Services
Snowbird car shipping services are important to the health and lifeblood of the vehicle shipping industry, but what are they? What does the term mean, and who can use snowbird car shipping? The answers are all right here in this blog post, starting with what it is. Snowbird auto transportation is when a customer ships south from one of the northern states during the summer or early fall, lives where the weather is calm during the winter, then ships back north during the late winter or early spring, when the southern weather starts getting unbearable. They are one of the most important customer demographics for some carriers, too, especially during the winter months.
Just about anyone can be a snowbird and in need of snowbird car shipping services, and there are a lot of different snowbird routes that carriers take. The most common is New York to Florida, usually smaller towns and cities that are removed from the hustle and bustle of those state’s urban centers. Carriers often rely on snowbirds during the slower times of the year, which is usually winter, and many customers tend to ship near the same time. One person sees an auto transport truck outside their neighbor’s house, which reminds them that they have to get their own shipment set up, and so on.
You should understand that snowbird car shipping services are usually fairly cheap and easy to find, as many of the routes are heavily traveled. Whether you’re shipping from New England, the Great Lakes, the northern Plains, the Pacific Northwest, or somewhere else down south, chances are your route is going to be at least easy to find a carrier along. They need those routes particularly during the winter months when the loads are harder to find. But at the end of the day, you shouldn’t have any problems finding affordable car transportation services from the northern parts of the country to the south, regardless of the time of year.
