Who are the snowbirds? What is snowbirds season?

‘Snowbirds’ season is every spring and fall when many ‘snowbirds’ head south for the winter. ‘Snowbirds‘ are mostly retirees from the Midwest and the North and Northeast regions who pack their bags and move to the South to escape the unpleasant cold weather.

During the ‘snowbirds’ season the auto transport business peaks and the rates are higher, which could make it harder to find available car carrier. We work hard to keep a strong working relationships with hundreds of car transport carriers who travel to Florida, Arizona and Texas. This is how we can be sure to find you a reliable Florida car shipping carrier to move your vehicle. Learn more about why snowbirds move south and share your reasons!

In general, all routes from north to south could be called snowbirds routes. The main snowbirds states are Florida, Arizona, Texas and California. But we can also add Nevada, New Mexico, Alabama and South Carolina.

During snowbirds season car shipping prices on these routes go up. We advise our customers to not be lured by the lowest prices on the market. The auto transport carriers have too many cars to choose from and they go by the highest price, which means if you are not willing to pay more your car will not get transported soon and you will wait longer than expected. If an auto transport company doesn’t tell you this, and offers you a low price this should raise a red flag. Call us and we will discuss all details and explain the process step by step.

How much does snowbirds car shipping cost?

The cost to ship a vehicle depends on a few important factors. It is important to understand them all in order to know when you are getting a fair vehicle transport price.

Vehicle Make & Model

Vehicle Condition

Type of Transport

Location & Distance

Supply & Demand

Only when all of these factors are all accounted for will you have a realistic price. Auto transport is not a cheap service and customer should understand that. Looking for the lowest rate is bound to have consequences. You often end up waiting for weeks for a carrier to pick-up your vehicle. Or, in the worst case scenario, you get booked with an unskilled carrier who damages your vehicle.

When it comes to shipping a car during snowbirds season, a current market price is more important than ever. Supply and demand is the factor that ultimately determines the price. During snowbirds season the demand is high, and supply often falls short. This means that you must pay the current market price in order to have your car shipped in a timely manner.

When demand is high this means that new loads (vehicles) become available to the carriers constantly. Carriers must be paid a current market price in order to book your vehicle. Corsia Logistics tracks prices manually on the central dispatch board and quotes only current market prices. This guarantees timely and professional service.

Snowbirds, shipping your car is easier than driving it!

Since you are moving across the country keep in mind that driving in the winter is risky. A across state lines often means days of driving in bad winter conditions. Interstate highways are busy and potentially dangerous if you are not an experienced driver. It is easier and safer to hire an auto transport company to ship your car. This is when you get to sit and relax on a plane and save your precious time.

Most snowbirds realize that it is cheaper to ship their car than to drive to their southern destination. Driving across the country means spending money on gas, lodging, food and often emergencies such as flat tires. If you have to move your vehicle more than 200 miles away, we recommend you hire an auto transport company.
