Auto Shipping to Hagerstown, MarylandHagerstown is a city in and also the county seat of Washington County, in the U.S. state of Maryland. It is the largest city in the “Western Maryland” region – which really is more central Maryland than western, but that’s okay. Auto shipping to Hagerstown is a lot easier to find as a result of this. More importantly, it sits just northwest of the Washington-Baltimore metro area that dominates eastern and southern Maryland. This area in particular draws a lot of attention from auto shippers – it’s the area around the U.S. capital, after all. So there’s not only almost continual demand for services to or from the area but it’s also fairly easy to access.

Is auto shipping to Hagerstown easy to find?

It should be, all things considered. As we mentioned, auto shippers like to run routes to and from big cities with large, sprawling metropolitan areas. This is because it’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. And that’s really where carriers want to be, too. There’s no real money in going way out of the way to pickup or deliver a vehicle. That’s just common sense in the industry. So when it comes to auto shipping to Hagerstown, car carriers need to be able to easily get to the Baltimore or D.C. areas too. And they can and do.

It really helps that Hagerstown sits right along both I-70 and I-81. Both of these are fairly prominent interstate highways through western Maryland, especially I-70. The interstate highways are a carrier’s main way of getting from A to B to C and so on. So running routes to and from areas that sit along major interstates is a huge plus for them. They tend to spend less money actually running the routes, which means lower prices for you. Also, it should result in more interest in routes to and from Hagerstown. Again, ease of access is important with carriers and really important when it comes to getting your vehicle picked up quickly. If a carrier has easy access to your pickup or delivery location, they’re more apt to take the load. Make sure to speak to an agent as well to learn more.

New England Auto Transport

The northeastern United States has been rocked by storm after storm…and another one is coming tomorrow.

This marks the third snowstorm in a week that has disrupted New England and New England auto transport services. This storm is going to dump even more snow on the already-blanketed area. Northern New England is likely going to take the brunt of this new storm, much the same as it has with the last two.

This makes New England auto transport services a lot more difficult to find because snow and ice cause serious problems. But as February turns to March, it’s going to have an even larger impact on the snowbirds who are returning home.

How this new winter storm affects New England auto transport services (and snowbirds)

In the depths of the winter season snowbird shipments start petering out. Most people move down south at the end of fall or the beginning of winter, not halfway through the season. Some people go earlier, but few will go later. But snowbirds also go back up north once the snows are gone and the weather warms up. Now, the weather still hasn’t warmed up, obviously, but that might put a kink in snowbirds shipping back up north, especially the early ones.

Parts of Maine and New Hampshire will likely see an additional foot of snow, so you can kiss those routes goodbye. In situations like this, carriers aren’t going to risk their loads to travel through that much snow and ice. Instead, they’re going to try to stay further south, maybe Boston. More than likely New York City. NYC sees a lot of traffic throughout the year as it’s the biggest city in the country. So carriers are likely going to go there and no further.

So if you’re a snowbird, chances are you’re going to be stuck down south a while longer. Not that it’s a bad thing right now – many of you probably won’t be shipping until next month at the earliest. But with the way that the weather has been it might last into March and maybe even April. If the snow stops coming down enough to clear up some routes, carriers will be more willing to head into New England. But only time will tell.

Car Shipping from Birmingham to BrooklynBirmingham is the largest city in the state of Alabama. Brooklyn is one of New York City’s five boroughs. But car shipping from Birmingham to Brooklyn may not be as popular as those statistics might otherwise indicate. New York City is one of the most popular car shipping locations in the U.S. And Brooklyn is a major part of New York City, so Brooklyn auto shipping definitely sees demand. But Birmingham car transport services aren’t as popular. Nonetheless, there are plenty of carriers running routes north to New York City and beyond, so finding one shouldn’t be hard. Still though, there are some things you’ll want to know about car shipping from Birmingham to Brooklyn, so keep reading.

Some things to know about car shipping from Birmingham to Brooklyn

So to start, the route itself isn’t all that popular. Not a lot of people moving up north from Birmingham, after all. And most of the routes north out of the southern U.S. are snowbird routes out of Florida during the spring and summer. So during those times of the year, finding carriers willing to head north out of Birmingham may be tougher. They may end up continuing east to Florida and then heading to Brooklyn via I-95. This may make things a bit longer for you, in terms of wait times, but it may also make it cheaper.

This is because if a carrier were to travel straight to Brooklyn out of Birmingham they’d have to travel through relatively unpopular areas. We’re talking taking I-59 northeast and then through Chattanooga and Knoxville before entering southwestern Virginia. Now, okay, those two cities aren’t that unpopular in terms of auto transportation services, but they’re no Jacksonville or Tampa or Atlanta or Miami. This is why carriers would rather go east and hit I-95 and take it all the way up to New York City. There are more populated areas along I-95 that will yield more customers and more money. That said, make sure to speak to an agent. They can explain more about the route, what to expect and what it’ll cost.

Household Moving to Buffalo, New YorkBuffalo is a city located in western New York State, in Erie County. It is the county seat of Erie County and home to over 258,700 residents. Many people know it as the home of the Buffalo Bills of the NFL. And that’s one reason why household moving to Buffalo is fairly popular, though it’s far from the only reason. However, Buffalo has also seen an exodus from its city limits over the past few decades, largely as a result of deindustrialization. This can make it more difficult to find household moving to Buffalo, largely because most movers are going to be leaving Buffalo instead of going there.

Is household moving to Buffalo popular?

Judging by the population decline over the past forty years, no, it’s not. But those numbers are just aggregate numbers that just take into account Census counts every ten years. People move to Buffalo every day. Other people move away from Buffalo every day. So to say that household moving to Buffalo isn’t popular just because it’s population is in decline is rather short-sighted. There are many moving companies that are more than willing and capable of moving your goods to Buffalo. However, we must mention that Buffalo is known for bad winter weather, lake effect snow, and deindustrialization, which do impact demand for moving services.

Winter moving is really going to be difficult. Buffalo doesn’t experience lake effect snows every winter, but they happen often. Lake effect basically just means that Buffalo gets hit with feet of snow all the damn time. And this makes household moving to Buffalo a lot more difficult during the winter months. Movers will avoid the area, as will car shippers, until the snows let up, which will most definitely impact prices and services. We recommend you speak to a live agent as soon as possible. They can answer questions, give advice and information, and help you get your free moving quotes as well.

Southern Auto Transport Services

Severe tornadoes are threatening the southeastern United States today, which may impact southern auto transport services.

Strong winds, hail and potential tornadoes are part of a weather system moving up the southeast. The system came last night and has already dumped severe hail in many cities in the area. Cities such as Jackson, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; and Paducah, Kentucky have already seen major hail storms. More are expected.

Auto shipping companies and carriers don’t like running routes through severe weather, after all. And hail the likes of which the southern U.S. sees can cause damage to a car transporters’ cargo.

How impacted will southern auto transport services be?

It’s tough to say right now. These types of systems typically don’t last that long, so that’s a good thing. But for carriers on the road in those areas, they may end up taking a break. Yes, it’ll cost them money, but that kind of hail can be disastrous. There have been many instances of major hail stones causing damage to cars, including roofs and windshields.

Carriers, naturally, want to avoid that if they can.

Eastern parts of the region, especially the Atlanta area, will see this weather hit later today. This will likely result in an even worse commute through the area. If you recall, the Atlanta area ranks high in congestion, which will further impact car shipping services.

If your vehicle is currently en route through the southern United States, rest easy. Your auto shipper will do their best to make sure that the weather will not impact your vehicle in any major way. However, accidents happen, especially when the weather is that brutal. If you are concerned, you can try to contact your agent. They may not be able to reach the carrier, but if they can they’ll likely let you know.
