Severe Tornadoes May Impact Southern Auto Transport Services
Severe tornadoes are threatening the southeastern United States today, which may impact southern auto transport services.
Strong winds, hail and potential tornadoes are part of a weather system moving up the southeast. The system came last night and has already dumped severe hail in many cities in the area. Cities such as Jackson, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; and Paducah, Kentucky have already seen major hail storms. More are expected.
Auto shipping companies and carriers don’t like running routes through severe weather, after all. And hail the likes of which the southern U.S. sees can cause damage to a car transporters’ cargo.
How impacted will southern auto transport services be?
It’s tough to say right now. These types of systems typically don’t last that long, so that’s a good thing. But for carriers on the road in those areas, they may end up taking a break. Yes, it’ll cost them money, but that kind of hail can be disastrous. There have been many instances of major hail stones causing damage to cars, including roofs and windshields.
Carriers, naturally, want to avoid that if they can.
Eastern parts of the region, especially the Atlanta area, will see this weather hit later today. This will likely result in an even worse commute through the area. If you recall, the Atlanta area ranks high in congestion, which will further impact car shipping services.
If your vehicle is currently en route through the southern United States, rest easy. Your auto shipper will do their best to make sure that the weather will not impact your vehicle in any major way. However, accidents happen, especially when the weather is that brutal. If you are concerned, you can try to contact your agent. They may not be able to reach the carrier, but if they can they’ll likely let you know.
