Understanding the Seasonality of Car Shipping

The auto transport industry experiences ebbs and flows throughout the year, influenced by various factors such as weather conditions, demand and supply, and even holidays. Understanding these seasonal trends can help you plan your car shipping for maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The Six Best Seasons to Ship Your Car

While you can ship your car at any time of the year, certain seasons offer distinct advantages.

1. Early Spring

Early spring, particularly late March and early April, can be an excellent time to ship your car. The weather is generally favorable, and the demand is not as high as in the summer, leading to lower prices.

2. Late Fall

Similar to early spring, late fall offers mild weather conditions and lower demand, making it a cost-effective season for car shipping.

3. Summer

Summer is the peak season for auto transport due to high demand. While prices may be higher, the availability of carriers and faster delivery times often compensate for the cost.

4. Snowbird Season

Snowbird season, typically in late fall and early spring, sees a surge in demand as people migrate to warmer climates. If you're flexible with your schedule, you can take advantage of this trend.

5. After Major Holidays

Shipping your car after major holidays can be beneficial as demand usually drops, leading to lower prices.

6. Off-Peak Winter Months

While winter weather can pose challenges, shipping your car during off-peak winter months like January and February can save you money due to decreased demand.
