Multiple Fires Affect Eastern Washington Vehicle Shipping

Eastern Washington Vehicle ShippingWhen it comes to eastern Washington vehicle shipping services, most carriers have two basic routes they take. The first – and probably the more heavily traveled – is I-90, through Spokane. The other is I-5 (in western Washington) to then connect to one of numerous state highways to get the the eastern part of the state. But either way, those routes are currently in jeopardy thanks to over sixteen different wildfires that are raging in Washington.

Wildfires are tricky in how they affect vehicle shipping services. We’ve certainly covered them before; from California to Oregon to Washington and beyond, we tend to cover crazy weather in order to keep our customers informed about what might impact their auto transport services. And as time goes on, it seems that wildfires in particular are getting more common. Keep reading to learn how your eastern Washington vehicle shipping services may be affected by the recent fires.

An overview of eastern Washington vehicle shipping

So, Washington State is kind of weird when it comes to auto transport. It’s a fairly large state, and it’s the home of Seattle, which is a major car transport hub. But it’s in the northwest corner of the country, and thus someone more difficult for carriers to get to. Not to mention that there are only two real ways carriers use to get in and out of Washington – I-90, and I-5.

On the whole, carriers don’t mind going to Washington. It just tends to be a bit spendier than other, more easily accessible parts of the nation. But finding a carrier isn’t hard, and there’s always demand for Washington transportation services.

How wildfires can affect eastern Washington vehicle shipping

For wildfires to impact car shipping services, they need to be close to major shipping routes. And if you look at a wildfire map of Washington State, like the one in this article, you can see that the fires aren’t all that close to the major interstates. This is great because it means that carriers can still get into and out of the state without too many issues, or without putting their loads in harms way.

But they’re definitely present, which can and likely will impact pickup and delivery services for those in affected areas. This could manifest in the form of reroutes (carriers having to take alternative routes to specific areas), or simply ignoring freight through affected areas.

Carriers don’t want to put the vehicles they ship in harm’s way. But they also don’t want to drive through smoke-choked areas; it’s bad for their trucks. Filters get ash and soot in them, decreasing efficiency, for instance. Visibility can be lessened. And then there’s the health impacts of being in an area with a lot of smoke. Some carriers may just think it’s too much of a hassle.

We covered Washington wildfires and how they can impact services last year around this time. And this time likely won’t be the last time we talk about wildfires in the United States and their impact on the auto transportation industry.
