What To Expect In The Fall of 2017 (September, October & November) For Auto Transport Shipments

What To Expect In The Fall of 2017 (September, October & November) For Auto Transport
There is no rest for the weary when it comes to auto shipping brokers, of which we are undeniably the best. How do we know? For starters the carriers tell us that our customers are better prepared than any others and know exactly what to expect. That means far fewer cancellations. We hear from car transport lead providers (we always turn them down) that the cancellation rate for most of their clients (other car transport brokers) is over 50%. Now that’s a whole lot of trouble and a miserable failure. No wonder so many of them go out of business. Hopefully you didn’t get hoodwinked into providing your personal information to the pretenders, the lead sellers. They sell your phone number and email address to unscrupulous auto transport brokers for $10-$15. That’s why your phone rings off the hook and your inbox fills up. Glad you found your way here to Direct Express Auto Transport, probably the most reliable car transport company in the business! We don’t do crazy stuff like that.
The Fall is perhaps the easiest time of year to ship your car. It is approximately 25% less busy than the Summer. The college kids are finished shipping their cars to school from all over the country. Families that waited until the summer to relocate to a new city and new life have done that by Labor Day. Grandma and Grandpa are still home enjoying the changing colors on the trees and that beautiful crisp smell in the air. No need just yet to hightail it to the warmer states. The Fall is no time to leave New England or the Upper Midwest. People in every region of America are pretty much set in a normal routine and the weather is spectacular just about everywhere. What a fantastic time to ship your car and use our incredibly efficient car shipping quote calculator to figure that out.

The beginning of September has residual business from the summer. But that quickly fades and by the end of September things have simmered down. A national balance takes shape in October in regard to vehicle supply and demand. Call it parity. The cost to ship your car in the Fall is typically 10% less than Summer pricing. So if you waited to ship your car, here comes your reward. It usually dips a little more through most of November, as customers enjoy a further 5-10% savings over October. Sometimes even more depending on the route. Once Thanksgiving hits though, the snowbirds start flocking to the warm southern states like Florida, Texas, Arizona and Southern California. Auto transport rates start to spike upward in late November and the holiday rush is on. Be careful not to book a vehicle transport order before Thanksgiving for a ship date after the holiday. Please wait until you are ready to ship your car to get the most current and accurate market pricing. You’ll be glad you did.
This year the car shipping industry has seen the devastating effects of global climate change in Texas and Louisiana when Hurricane Harvey leveled much of Houston and parts of the bayou. Florida got walloped only a week after that as Hurricane Irma demolished the Keyes and then ripped straight up through the state. Just as the Caribbean started to catch its breath, Hurricane Maria made a bee-line for Puerto Rico, knocking out power everywhere and breaking dams. Our hearts go out to those poor people. All of that extreme weather wreaked chaos on the auto shipping industry as it normally takes weeks to right itself. The category 5 strength of these hurricanes and especially Harvey’s 52 inches of record rainfall tells this auto transport company, Direct Express, that all of us need to change our ways to avert future climate change disaster. It is not fake news, folks. This is reality. And we are all in trouble.

What To Expect In The Summer of 2017 For Car Shipping

What To Expect In The Summer of 2017 (June, July & August) For Car Shipping
The snowbirds in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California made it home! Whew … what a rush. However, there is no rest for the weary when it comes to auto shipping brokers, of which we are undeniably the best. How do we know? For starters the carriers tell us that our customers are better prepared than any others and know what to expect. That means far fewer cancellations. We hear from car transport lead providers (we always turn them down) that the cancellation rate for most of their clients (other brokers) is over 50%. Now that’s a whole lot of trouble and a miserable failure. No wonder so many of them go out of business quick.
Summertime and the living is easy … and busy when it comes to shipping cars. Here’s what to expect. Early June and the college kids are shipping their cars home from all over the country. For many families, they waited until the school year was over and begin relocating to a new city and new life. It is both exciting and scary. We get that and try hard to relieve some of the stress with reliable and accurate quotes to ship your car!
Right around the 4th of July weekend, auto transport carriers get the bright idea of staying home to enjoy barbecue burgers, corn on the cobb, a few brew with family and friends. That’s all fine and dandy except for one thing. It creates one heckuva backlog of vehicles waiting to ship, which takes nearly two weeks to flush out. Everything slows down and nobody is happy. We love the 4th of July … and we dread it. Funny, eh?
By the end of July and early August things have simmered down. It is still very busy in the car shipping world, but a national balance has been found in regard to vehicle supply and demand. Around mid-August there is a late rush of orders coming from college kids going back to school, and families moving to their new cities before school starts around Labor Day.
On any given day during June, July and August 2017, there will be several thousand vehicles waiting to ship. All of those vehicles are competing with one another for precious auto transport truck space. Our good advice to you booking an order is to consider adding a tad more money. You are competing after all and sometimes just $50 extra makes a big difference. Our first of a kind car shipping quote calculator does a spectacular job of adjusting summer car transport pricing and gives you the customer the option of Expedited and Rush rates. That is exactly the sort of thing that will help alleviate customer stress and get your vehicle on the road this summer. Book it securely online or call our customer service representatives at 800-600-3750.
