Weather is going to stall shipments. Alas, we have arrived in winter for 2019. There is a whole slew of issues that come with the changing of the season. From icy winter roads to car accidents, traffic delays are going to happen, and they might happen to you. If you have never shipped a vehicle before, here are some tips for what to expect while shipping in winter weather
Winter Weather Shipments
Winter can bring about some of the worst road conditions. The end of the year is typically just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how bad things will get for the start of the new year.
Winter Creates The Poorest Driving Conditions
For northern US roads, winter is in full force. Currently, New England is under some heavy snow. With many reports of traffic accidents and poor conditions, come reports of delays. These, to put it simply, are going to happen.
Winter Weather and New Drivers
With winter now in full swing across multiple areas in the US, many new truck drivers are getting their first-hand experience driving in the snow. This can cause severe delays.
Not every truck driver receives the same training. If you grew up and live in Los Angeles, chances are you haven’t had much experience driving in the snow. Now, most CDL Class-A schools provide adequate training for these conditions, but as a native New Englander, the best bet is to learn via experience. Oregon is no stranger to these conditions as well.
It can be scary if you’re transporting your vehicle to or from a place where they are getting slammed with a snowstorm. Typically, a truck won’t smash anything up. That is the worst-case scenario. Chances are, your shipment might be delayed. If your car is going through 14 inches of snow to get to where it needs to go, expect some delays.
How To Choose the Right Transportation Service for Winter Weather
This can be an easy one. Find a transportation business that specializes in reliability. A reliable company will be able to inform you of every step of the way. They will also be able to provide any and all information in regards to your shipment.
If Your Shipment is Delayed
Don’t stress. A reputable company will be able to find an alternate route. The goal is still to deliver your shipment in a timely manner. The safety risks being attributed to driving through winter weather can be costly to the driver and others who share the road.
The company will be able to contact the driver and have word in regard to the estimated time of your delivery. Delays will happen. To find the right auto transport service is key.
