Intense Storm Makes Great Lakes Car Shipping Trickier

Great Lakes Car ShippingGreat Lakes car shipping services probably won’t be too adversely affected by recent severe weather. However, a recent bout of bombogenesis has led to downed trees and power lines after wind gusts of over 60 MPH. Bombogenesis is a term that refers to when a low pressure system rapidly intensifies. This can cause rapid, severe weather, and is seen in the Great Lakes region occasionally. It can happen any time of year, but is most common between October and March.

This storm likely isn’t going to be the worst weather the Great Lakes will see this year. Winter is bound to bring some crazy snow and ice later in the year or even after the new year comes. But severe weather can seriously impact pickup and delivery locations, transit times, and more.

How Great Lakes car shipping is affected by this storm

Mostly it’s not – people in the area have been and will continue to be affected by it, of course. But car shippers? Eh, not so much. Most carriers won’t have an issue with some downed power lines or trees, except when it comes to pickup and delivery locations. This is probably what will be affected most, and it’ll be an issue for almost nobody.

But it does highlight the concept of bombogenesis and how it can impact car shipping. A strong enough surge can cut off access to customers and can even close routes. These storms get powerful fast and some can see gusts up to 80 MPH. That’s some serious wind that can cause damage to car shipping trucks and their cargo.

That’s the biggest fear for carriers – damaged trucks and/or cargo. Insurance claims are a pain especially if they have to deal with a customers’ claim. So they’ll do what they can to avoid damaging their cargo, which, you know, is a pretty good thing for you.

How future Great Lakes car shipping services may be affected

Honestly, this storm won’t affect anyone shipping in a week or two. The damage is relatively minimal for a storm of its size, thankfully. As such,most carriers won’t have an issue running routes to Detroit or Chicago or any of their suburbs. Come winter, when the snows start falling in earnest, you’ll likely see a drop in demand from customers and carriers combined. For now, though, this isn’t a big issue all things considered.

If your vehicle happens to be going from or to a place affected by the storm, you can just meet your carrier somewhere else nearby. That will allow them to bypass damaged or inaccessible areas and still get your vehicle picked up. If there is damage in your area and you fear your carrier can’t reach your vehicle, give your agent a call. They can give you options and let you know what the carrier is willing to do.
