Snowbird Season is starting early this year!
UPDATE: Fall is almost here and the Snowbirds are starting to head South for the winter again.
Snowbirds don't just flock to Florida—they also flock to CA, TX, AZ and other southern states during what people call "snowbird season," as many refer to the months from October to March/April.
Many snowbirds make the southern journey in their own vehicles but more each year elect to transport their vehicles as they fly south.
Increased demand coupled with a decrease of available drivers for transport trucks has significantly driven up the price of a southern-bound ride on the "snowbird routes," North to South interstates.
Simple economics dictates that, as demand increases, so shall prices. Anyone pricing vehicle transports since October 1st will readily agree.
For the most populous routes, such as up and down the Eastern seaboard, transport prices can climb by $100 a week or more from October to December and are predicted to peak at nearly double the normal rate.
The good news is, if you need to ship a vehicle from South to North, you can do it significantly cheaper than any other time of the year, but just until it reverses in the Spring.
You can always count on Team–Alex to keep you informed about issues that affect the transport of your vehicles.
