Southwest Car Transport May Get Tricky Next Week

So, Southwest car transport services are looking to get a bit…spicy…next week, thanks to record-threatening high temperatures that are expected to hit the region.

A high pressure dome is forming over the southwest starting later this week and moving into next week. It’s expected to bring not only triple-digit temps to Phoenix, Tucson, and the rest of the Sonoran Desert, but possibly record-breaking highs.

This type of high pressure system often precedes heavy rainfall, often bordering on monsoon-worthy. According to, some of the highest temperatures of the year are seen before the summer rainfall in the region. But until the rains come, southwest car transport might just be kind of tricky.

What to expect with Southwest car transport this week

Well, as we mentioned in our most recent podcast, the Southwestern United States is notorious for high temperatures. Well, at least in the summer months. And while most people think of inclement weather as snow and ice, heat can cause problems for auto shipping carriers, especially those with older trucks. Auto shipping trucks are built to handle a number of different conditions, but it’s hard when the temperatures are in the triple digits.

The NWS has already released heat advisories across the southwest. And as this week turns to next, it’s only going to get worse. Not only that, but the NWS has come out and said “there is absolutely no doubt we will be near all time highs with this heat wave, with the hottest and most dangerous temperatures expected Monday through Wednesday.”


Auto shippers can have a hard time traveling through those temperatures because the heat can literally cook their engines. A car shipping truck has to be in top shape to put the miles on that it does, right? Well, if a truck is prone to overheating, carriers are going to want to try to avoid the southwest. Most should be fine.

But you still should talk to an agent about your carrier, if they’ve found one. You should find out what to expect with such high temperatures, especially to or from Phoenix. Right now, Phoenix is a popular car shipping location, and it’s only going to increase as the weeks and months go by. Remember, Phoenix is home to over five million people in the city proper, so there’s bound to be more than a few people who are shipping from or to the area.
