Cleveland Car Shipping Gets Rough due to Liam
Winter Storm Liam is making its way east across the northern Plains and into the Great Lakes region this week, which will make Cleveland car shipping that much more difficult in the coming days.
Winter weather is one of the biggest issues facing car transporters during the season. Snow and ice can cause delays and reroutes and can cause some carriers to avoid areas that see a lot of snow. When the weather is nice they’re more able to run those routes, which is why it’s important to keep an eye on the weather.
How Liam will affect Cleveland car shipping services
As mentioned above, Liam will likely slow down carriers planning on running routes through Cleveland. This is pretty much par for the course. The storm is moving east, and relatively quickly at that. So it won’t stick around for more than a day or two, which helps when it comes to finding Cleveland car shipping.
However, the snow will likely last longer than a day. Reports expect upwards of five inches, but likely more. Des Moines got shellacked by blizzard-like conditions earlier today, and the same can be expected of Cleveland as well.
The real issue is that Liam is shutting down east-west routes through the region. Carriers already don’t like the northern U.S. during the winter months. Those that do run routes through the snow and ice are taking a bigger risk, and with Liam coming it’ll be even riskier. It’s safe to say many will either stop or reroute to more palatable routes.
What to expect with Cleveland car shipping this week
You can and should expect delays in vehicles that are already in transit. Liam likely won’t affect booking rates to or from the city, if only because carriers already going through the region won’t mind a bit of snow and ice – they’re likely already used to it.
However, Cleveland car shipping services are already more expensive thanks to the winter season. So if you gathered quotes during the fall to prep for winter transport, you likely will want to get new quotes to see how prices have changed.
On the whole, though, Liam will simply set carriers back a bit as opposed to shutting down routes completely. This is good news for you if you’re searching for quotes to or from Cleveland.
