Safer than Driving


Is this the first time you ship your vehicle for the winter? There are so many precautions to take. Nearly all of our customers say the same thing: They wish they had thought of having their cars brought down on an auto carrier much sooner. In fact, almost every first time snowbird will contact us year after to year to have it shipped again. No need to hit the road fighting with the elements, traffic, and possible dangers they come with traveling long-distance.

Shipping your vehicle as opposed to driving during this season is a no-brainer. Nothing beats taking a flight to come down and  seeing your vehicle arrive a short time later. By the time you factor in hotel, gas, food that’s when most realize it’s definitely not worth driving anymore.

We know our snowbirds. When booking auto transport you need to be reassured that your vehicle is adequately insured and that the company you’re dealing with is fully licensed and bonded. National Express has $1 million in liability insurance and on additional hundred thousand for motor cargo that is guaranteed to be on every carrier we use.


How Early to Schedule Snowbird Car Shipping


Life teaches you to plan ahead. So you may be wondering how early to book your snowbird transport. But all auto transportation is usually scheduled 2-3 days prior to the availability date of the vehicle. This is the nature of the system. Many vehicles that carriers find favorable can become available to ship right away at random times, so to maximize their load (and bottom line) they will look for vehicles as they prepare to arrive at their next city or town.

Opportunities for Lower Rates


The snowbird season relatively begins and ends in about the same times every year. Volume begins to increase around October for vehicles heading south and vehicles heading north become much cheaper. The reverse will happen when it’s time for these visitors to return to the north. Rates coming down south will begin to drop in March/ April. This gives you a window where the rate will be much cheaper if your time is flexible.  For example, a midsize sedan coming from Florida to New York in February or early March could ship as low as $450.  The same would be on the trip south.  If you can plan on shipping your vehicle in September your ring will be about the same price.  So some flexibility you can save a lot of money transporting your car on this route.
