Holiday Shipping With Car Shipping Economics
The concepts of supply and demand are well-known to most people. Prices tend to rise when there is more demand. Prices fall when demand is lower. This is true for the auto transport industry. The demand for a route increases when there are more cars traveling that way. You can also expect to receive a great deal if you go in the opposite direction.
Who are the Snowbirds?
A group known as the Snowbirds is one of the most interesting and relevant groups. These are people who travel from the North to the South (especially the northeast to Florida) in the winter and then back again during the summer to escape the extreme heat and cold of the North.
Move Car wants to ensure that you get the best price. Here are some tips to help you avoid holiday peak prices or take advantage of great rates.
Timing is Everything
You might be able to get a great deal if you're looking to ship your car along these routes during peak season. Although prices are rising, you'll generally get a better rate today than in a month or two. Avoid the weeks between Christmas and New Year if you can. These are the worst times to expect high prices. If you don't plan to ship within the next few months, it might be worth putting off your Florida car shipping plans for a few weeks after the new year.
Do Not Go With The Flow
If you are someone who is a rebel or just need to have a car shipped in a different direction to one of these routes, you should take advantage of the lowest prices available all year. As prices rise for Southbound routes, expect a decrease in Northbound routes. You might be able to save a bit more money by pushing back your plans. However, you should be careful to avoid Christmas and New Year.
