Trusted Snowbird Auto Transport

Dreaming of warm weather? Want to escape dreary wintertime? Sounds like you’re ready to stretch your wings as a snowbird. Making the move to a warmer locale, whether it involves whale-watching off the coast of Hawaii or the sugar-white sands of Florida’s Gulf Coast, is probably a no-brainer. But when it comes to relocating your car, you might want to think twice about doing it yourself. Along with fighting winter conditions on the road, you’ll have to consider wear and tear (on your vehicle and yourself) as well as additional costs like food, gas, lodging, and more. Not to mention the potential for an accident or auto damage.

Better option? Leave it to the pros. Caravan Auto Transport makes it simple (and affordable) to book a reliable & qualified auto shipping service. Our network of carriers services all snow-bird destinations (including Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, and South Carolina from other parts of both the US and Canada).

Reasons to Ship Your Vehicle Instead of Driving

For snowbirds, seasonal travel opens up a world of possibilities. But what are the top reasons to hire an auto transport company instead of driving yourself? Let’s find out.

Save Time, Effort, and Money

As we mentioned in the intro, there are several drawbacks to transporting a car yourself. It might be tempting at first, but long-distance driving is no joke.

Instead, avoid all the hassle. With a shipping service, you can focus on getting prepared for your new adventures in a sunny state. This allows you to be refreshed and relaxed by the time you make it to your destination. Plus, shipping can be surprisingly cheap!

Safety and Security

There are many hazards along the way when driving yourself. Along with accidents, you may have to contend with storms, traffic jams, and a host of stressful situations.

If you’re looking to protect yourself and your investment – from a van to a collectible exotic – going with a professional carrier is the ticket. This way, you can bypass many dangers on the road, including falling asleep while driving and debris hitting your vehicle.

Shipping Options

Own a family, luxury, or unique vehicle? Want to ensure a drama-free trip to its new spot? From open shipment to expedited service, there’s a multitude of options available when it comes to transporting your vehicle.

Snowbird vehicle shipping can be tailored to your specific requirements. Plus, you may have the option of shipping a suitcase or other items in your trunk, saving you the labor of taking it on a plane. Definitely a win-win situation!

Convenient Drop Off and Pick Up

Want to save yourself from the pain of DIY driving? With a snowbird car shipping service, you’ll be on your way to fewer headaches and more fun times via easy drop-off and pick-up.

There are two main options: terminal drop-off or door-to-door shipping. Either way you go, the bulk of the transport is taken off your shoulders. The effort (and stress) you save not having to drive the distance to your winter destination is worth its weight in gold. And if you want to make it even easier, door-to-door service (see below section) does just that. Sit back while it’s taken care of by a pro!

Snowbird Car Shipping Options

Offering convenience, safety, and security (as well as surprising affordability), seasonal car transport is a fantastic way to get your car to its new sunny location. Here are the main options for snowbird auto shipping:

Open Carrier Transport

Fast and economical, open-air shipping is a highly popular pick. It’s also more readily available compared to its enclosed carrier counterpart.

As the name implies, this type of transport is open. There are no walls or roofs. If you’re not too concerned about your car being exposed to the elements during transit, this is a fantastic pick, particularly if you want to save time and money. However, if you’re looking for an option that provides more protection, consider enclosed transport (more on that below).

Enclosed Carrier Transport

Have a special car – vintage, classic, or exotic? From luxury SUVs to super rare supercars, enclosed carrier shipping is the ultimate in security and safety for your vehicle.

Unlike open shipping, this option provides full cover and special handling of your prized vehicle. Whether you need to safeguard a custom paint job or ensure your ride arrives in absolutely pristine condition, enclosed shipping is the way to go. The downside is that it does cost more (and is less readily available). But for the peace of mind, it can be worth it.

Door To Door Shipping

Want the easiest, most convenient service? Too busy or simply don’t want to drop off or pick up your car at a designated depot? Door-to-door transport is a breeze!

Saving time and effort (plus wear and tear), this service is virtually effortless. Rest and relax while a transporter picks up your vehicle, securely hauls it, and then drops it off at your new residence. When coupled with an enclosed option, this is the definitive high-end service.

Expedited Shipping

On a tight time schedule? In most cases, standard shipping times work well. But there can be several reasons for quicker delivery.

From auto shows to planned road trips, getting your car shipped fast is super handy. Of course, expedited transport comes with an added cost. Caravan makes it easy to compare and save on services that fit your exact needs. Don’t be shy to ask about expedited shipping.

Senior Discounts

Are you a retiree that’s interested in affordable auto shipping? Senior snowbirds may qualify for discounts from select auto transporters.
