Shipping your car in the summer is more expensive because there’s a higher demand during the warmer months. Think about it: families want to move when it’s nice out, and snowbirds are returning home after their time in tropical weather. In addition, there are a lot of car events across the nation that car carriers service including the Pebble Beach Car Week, which nearly all major enclosed carriers attend. If you want your vehicle quickly, be prepared to pay more because there may be limited space on carriers. Typically, cars move easily during this time, though cars won’t ship as fast during holidays like the 4th of July. If you don’t want to face the rush, it may be in your best interest to wait until fall. The weather will still be mild, and prices may decrease once summer is over.
