Severe Weather Could Impact Missouri Vehicle Shipping Routes
Summer has sun and drought. Fall has hurricanes. Winter has snow. And spring, apparently, has tornadoes. Though apparently this year may not be as severe as years past, at least when it comes to Missouri vehicle shipping routes and services.
While tornadoes are common in the Midwest and the southern U.S. during this time of year, this week, at least, should see fewer tornadoes. But that doesn’t mean that there’s going to be sunshine in the forecast.
While tornadoes may not be forming as rapidly, severe weather is still on the horizon, including high winds, thunderstorms, and that famous Midwestern hail. This could have some carrier companies shifting routes and avoiding all of that for fear of damaging their cargo. Keep reading if you’re looking for Missouri vehicle shipping services this week.
How severe weather could impact Missouri vehicle shipping
Like with most severe weather reports, carriers will typically brave it unless there’s a high chance of damaging their truck or the vehicles they’re shipping. And tornadoes are a lot different than hurricanes. They’re quite localized, so carriers should have an easier time avoiding them. But then again, tornadoes are quite volatile, and no one knows exactly where they’re going to strike until they do.
This sort of uncertainty is something that a lot of carriers want to avoid. So some of them may end up going around or changing their route to avoid the storms. And this is especially true if there’s going to be thunderstorms and hail. Hail especially, considering how damaging it can be to the cars on their trucks. Many of them will continue on and hope that the cars don’t get smacked by massive hail stones. But that’s not always avoidable.
We highly recommend you speak to your agent about the weather if your vehicle will be passing through Missouri or the rest of the Midwest or the southern U.S. They can tell you what the carrier’s plans are and how they are approaching running routes through the region. You shouldn’t expect too many delays, but don’t be surprised if they tell you it may take a few more days.
