In Orlando, we’re blessed with excellent weather for nearly the entire year. However, that’s not the case for much of the rest of the country. As the weather turns colder toward the end of the year, shipping cars becomes slightly more difficult. Orlando Car Transport has no trouble helping people with their winter car shipping needs. Here’s how we take extra precautions to keep your car safe during the winter:
Routing Is More Important During the Winter
The biggest impact that winter weather has on our operations is with routing. Inclement weather, like driving rain or snow, can make certain areas unsafe for our drivers to drive through. After all, they’re carrying precious (and heavy) cargo. So, we’ll make sure that our routes are safe for our drivers. We’ll avoid really bad weather and large elevation changes as much as possible. This may mean your car takes a little bit longer to get to your destination, but don’t worry; it won’t take too long.
Our Drivers Will Take Greater Care
Safety is important all the time, but the danger to our drivers is much greater in the winter. Therefore, we make sure our drivers know to drive slowly and carefully as they take their routes. They also know to perform any maintenance they may think they need before they leave with your cars. The winter can have serious impacts on vehicles, from reducing tire pressure to salt erosion. So, we’ll make sure that our drivers are taking their vehicles seriously so they can take care of yours!
We Always Recommend Enclosed Car Shipping in the Winter
We do everything we can to keep your cars safe while they’re in our care. However, we can’t protect your car from everything that the world might throw at it. That is, unless you choose our enclosed car transport service! With this service, your car will be completely covered by a protective metal trailer. Yes, this service is more expensive than open car shipping, but the savings you get on your car itself are definitely worth it. If you’re shipping your car in the winter, we definitely recommend protecting it with enclosed transport.
