In spring, snowbirds return to their homes in the northern states. Snowbird transport allows individuals the freedom of using their own vehicle throughout the year, without costly rentals or the wear caused by physically driving up or down for the year.

Snowbird Car Transport is Better and Safer Than Driving

No need to hit the road fighting with the elements, traffic, and possible dangers they come with traveling long-distance. There are many steps needed to stay safe and during the winter this can be difficult. Shipping your vehicle as opposed to driving during this season is better because it's safe, and not just convenient.  You avoid driving in bad weather, driving if you have issues with mobility, impairments cause by medications, and more.

Is this the first time you ship your vehicle for the winter?

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. Nothing beats taking a flight to come down and seeing your vehicle arrive a short time later.

That's is ok with us as we can get your vehicle picked up in as quickly as 24 hours from the time you book with us with our expedited services.

How to Schedule Snowbird Car Shipping

Life teaches you to plan ahead. So you may be wondering how early to book your snowbird move. Most carriers usually schedule 2-3 days prior to the availability date of the vehicle. That means you can book as early as a couple of days ahead of time. No need to reserve months in advance, our carrier network is ready to get you in days, not weeks.
