If you’re one of our “snowbird” customers and don’t transport your vehicle south for the winter, you may want to reconsider, especially if you’ve been making the trek for years and it’s simply becoming a grind. Here are some helpful suggestions if you’ve been thinking about it, but haven’t tried it yet.

Every year millions of Americans travel South for the winter, escaping the cold, harsh winters in their home states in favor of sunnier climes in Florida. Since snowbirds often spend upwards of 3 months at their winter homes, it’s important to have a vehicle. Here are some things to consider when determining if auto shipping is for you.

How can auto shipping help me?

For those that want to use their own vehicle during the winter, but don't want to drive it all the way here, auto shipping can be a life saver. An experienced auto shipping company can load your vehicle onto a flatbed or transporter truck and deliver it to your chosen winter home with little effort on your part. You’re then free to take a flight instead - an easier and more relaxing process for most folks.

Will your vehicle be safe while being shipped?

Since your vehicle is likely one of your more valuable assets, it makes sense to be worried about its safety during the shipping process. During shipping your vehicle will be securely fastened to a truck driven by a professional driver who is trained how to deal with most situations that may arise.

It is worth noting that most shipping companies use open-air transportation as standard. This means that your vehicle could be exposed to wind, rain, and possibly snow. If you prefer to keep your vehicle away from the elements, you can opt for a closed shipping truck instead.

How much does auto shipping cost?

There are a number of different factors that go into determining the cost of any auto shipment, such as the distance to be traveled, the popularity of the route, and the speed of shipment. Though a shipment from New York to Florida is a long distance, it is also a very popular route, so you might be able to save some money because of this.

Spending winter in the sun is something that snowbirds across the nation look forward to every year. Spending time on the beach is so much better than shoveling snow - and by hiring an auto shipper to handle the transportation of your vehicle, your winter stay can become even easier and more relaxing.
