New Snow Storm Makes Midwest Auto Shipping More Difficult This Week
The Midwest from the Rockies clear to eastern Canada is about to get rocked by a new storm storm it seems. This will undoubtedly only add to the difficulties that Midwest auto shipping services have seen the past few months.
Drastic drops in temperatures are expected across the Midwest through Wednesday and Thursday and snowfall is expected in numerous states across the region.
It seems like Minneapolis, Green Bay and the rest of the upper Midwest is going to take the brunt of the snowfall. Chicago and Detroit are going to see high winds and rain, and places like Cincinnati and Indianapolis are going to see thunderstorms. But the weather may shift and bring snow further south, so watch the weather.
How Midwest auto shipping may be impacted
Obviously snow and ice are not things carriers like to deal with. So they’ll avoid routes that are snowbound if they can. Many carriers watch the weather reports when they’re building their routes, and will look to avoid this snowstorm as well.
Luckily, a lot of the popular routes right now are either up the east coast or through the southern states. In other words, most people right now are shipping where the weather is warmer.
But for people looking for Midwest auto shipping services, expect some delays. To be fair, the snowfall is expected to only be 3-5 inches in most areas but some of the northern cities can see up to ten inches. Diversions will likely be more common too at least until the roads are cleared in the major cities.
We highly recommend you speak to an agent about your Midwest auto shipping needs. They can give advice to help counter the weather and explain more about what to expect.
Prices should not be impacted much . Auto shippers en route already have the price locked in, after all. More importantly, those looking for routes through the area will likely just take a day or two to scope out the weather. So really, if your vehicle is already en route, you may see delays in delivery but that’s about it.
