The United States has been in the grip of several consecutive snow storms that have rocked the northern states. And it seems like more are on the way.
However that hasn’t stopped auto transporters from braving the cold, though more are looking at southern-based routes instead in an attempt to beat the weather.
This will likely mean lower prices for southeast car shipping services particularly to states such as Florida and the Gulf states. Throughout this week, temperatures are expected to rise in the southeast and the southern U.S. in general. However, northern states are still going to see cold temperatures, snow and also ice.
Does winter usually make southeast car shipping more popular?
As a matter of fact, it does. Auto transporters don’t want to run routes through snowbound areas if they can help it. We’ve discussed this before, of course, and it’s nothing new. However, we don’t really discuss much about what happens to other routes when the snows come, notably how popularity shifts.
As the weather worsens in the north, carriers stay further south until the snows pass. This means more carriers on southern car shipping routes especially I-10 and I-20. So car shipping to major cities from Los Angeles to Jacksonville really see an uptick in dispatch and pickup, whereas routes in the north see delays.
It’s not all that surprising, really. And if you’re shipping among the southern U.S., particularly the southeast, it’s a big boon. It results in more carriers on those routes, which means more competition for your car. And this tends to reduce prices especially in the slower winter auto shipping season.
During Christmas week, temperatures in the southeast are expected to be above average starting on Wednesday. This is great for auto transporters and customers alike. Meanwhile, snow and ice in the north, particularly the northern Midwest, will likely take a toll on car transportation services through the region.
