Snowbirds and seasonal travelers are a cornerstone of our business. In fact, some of Executive Auto Shippers’ first and most loyal customers are a short list of people who’ve wintered down south. Some include Florida snowbirds, clients that winter in Palm Springs CA, and others like Scottsdale, AZ or Corpus Christi, TX. Although the warm destinations are the common choices, the people come from a variety of different places including Midwest states like Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, Northeastern states like New York and Massachusetts, a few from the Pacific Northwest in Oregon and Washington, and from the Rocky Mountain states like Colorado.
At Executive Auto Shippers we’ve been helping snowbirds and seasonal travelers get their vehicles safely to their winter destinations since 2009, and some of our staff have been in the industry for decades longer with other companies. All our customers are unique in their needs, and you are no different. We understand that snowbirds and seasonal travelers have specific needs when traveling and we’ve learned over the years how to best meet your needs. Since you aren’t moving permanently, but are going for a longer stay, you have more items you need to take with you. Unfortunately, luggage at the airport can get expensive. That’s why we allow up to 100 lbs of non-valuable personal items to be packed into your vehicle. These items need to be in the trunk or cargo area of your vehicle, with the back seats up and below the window level. This helps drivers to safely load your car onto their trailer. If you think you’ll have more than 100 lbs of clothing or other items, we are still able to assist you with your transport for an additional fee. Since carriers have to stay within a specific weight for their loads, the fee is passed along to the carrier to help cover costs of possible penalties and/or fines for being overweight.
We can also charge your entire shipment onto your credit card so you don’t have to worry about payment at delivery. This is available for an additional fee which is passed along to the carrier. This way, if you aren’t able to be present, your car will still be delivered where it needs to be and available when you arrive. If for some reason the shipment is delayed past the guaranteed transport time, you won’t be stranded thanks to our Rental Car Guarantee.
Don’t let your winter vacation start with a long drive! Let our knowledgeable and friendly staff help you start enjoying your time away sooner.
