Holiday Auto Shipping Services
So. You’ve had months to ship a car to your mom for her Christmas present and you’ve waited until a week before the holiday. Hey, don’t worry – we’ve all done it from time to time. Of course, with car transport services, waiting until last minute probably isn’t the best idea, but we digress. If you’ve waited until the last minute for your holiday auto shipping services, there are a few things you should know.
What to expect with holiday auto shipping services
For starters, we need to talk about major holiday auto shipping and minor holiday auto shipping. So, major holidays include Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Easter, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Minor holidays include Halloween, President’s Day, Veteran’s Day, and any other one-off days that the kids may get off of school.
So, with major holiday auto shipping, carriers tend to want to spend those with their families. This means that those carriers try to clear their schedules to do so. This can make finding auto transport services around those holidays a bit more difficult, and usually a bit more expensive. If you’re shipping during the major holidays, book early and speak to an agent about how your services will be affected.
For the minor holidays, though, while some carriers may take the day off most of them will still be on the road. As such, minor holiday auto shipping services are a lot easier to find and don’t normally disrupt carrier schedules. You still want to talk to an agent about shipping around those minor holidays, just to have all your ducks in a row. But you shouldn’t expect any of the issues that come up during major holiday auto shipping.
