New England Auto Transport Will Still be Difficult
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.
