Just exactly what is meant by the phrase "seasonal fluctuations in auto transport"? Everybody talks about it but hardly anybody explains it. The auto shipping business just assumes that the phrase is self explanatory, and to a degree it is. Obviously, as the seasons change there are ebbs and flows in the car transport industry that change with it. But what does that really mean for the customer? How does that play out in real life? And why should a customer give it any concern? Here on this page we will attempt to answer those questions, because inquiring minds want to know.
If you own or operate a company that uses limousines, chances are that unless you build your own custom limos you’ve had to have one or two transported before. Typically, limousines are no different to transport than a regular car – however, because of their length, chances are they’re going to take up two spots on an open car transport carrier, which means that it’s going to cost about double what it normally would to transport a standard automobile. This can’t be avoided – shipping a vehicle that takes up two spots means that the carrier can’t haul as many cars, which in turn means he can’t make as much money as he normally would on the route he’s driving on, which means he has to charge more for vehicles that take up more spots. It’s just the way it works.
If you’re transporting a super-stretch limousine, or one that is really tall, it may not be able to fit on a standard carrier; in that case, it would need a flatbed shipper, which does indeed cost more. However, this is a last resort situation; most limousines, while they do take up more than one space, can still fit on the back of an open carrier just fine.
