We pick up your vehicle

A few hours ahead of your scheduled pick-up time, you’ll be contacted by the snowbird car transport carrier. This is because they need to confirm the location is accessible for large commercial vehicles. Let them know if you think it might be a problem and an alternative can be arranged. You could, for example, meet them in a parking lot, a wider street nearby, or where you work. The carrier also needs to confirm someone will be available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be present, nominate a third-party to act on your behalf, such as a neighbor, friend, relative, or colleague.

You and the snowbird shipping driver closely inspect your vehicle before it’s loaded. Any dings, dents, scratches, or other existing damage must be recorded on the Bill of Lading. You’ll be given a copy of this important document, so make sure you keep it safe. Your vehicle is then loaded into the snowbird car transport trailer and it’s time to say goodbye. The progress of your shipment can be tracked by checking in with the driver. You can also opt for receiving regular updates by phone, email, or Live Chat.

You receive your vehicle

Before you know it, you’ll be contacted by the carrier to let you know your vehicle is almost home. A few hours before its arrival, they get in touch to make sure you’re available. If you’re not, a trusted third party can be nominated to accept your vehicle on their behalf. Think about asking a neighbor, friend, acquaintance, relative, or colleague, as long as they’re 18 years of age or older.

Finally, your vehicle arrives and you have the opportunity to check its condition before signing the Bill of Lading. If you opted for the Discounted Cash Price, this is when you pay the remaining balance, either in cash, by cashier’s check, or money order.

Which auto transport service do snowbirds prefer?

The most popular snowbirds car shipping service is one that uses an open transport trailer for transporting vehicles. It’s by far our most budget-friendly option, while still providing a safe and secure way to transport a car.

If a snowbird is the proud owner of a custom, classic, antique, or luxury vehicle, it’s always recommended they use our enclosed auto transport service. It costs a little bit extra, but offers complete protection from the elements and traffic grime.

One other service that’s very popular is our Hawaii snowbird car shipping service, as this is a very popular destination for people traveling south to avoid the harsh weather in the north.
