California Traffic Information
As we all know, the traffic in California isn’t always friendly. In fact, there are certain areas throughout the state that may seem impossible to drive through and when the weather acts up, these traffic patterns may become more persistent or even change routes. There is a lot that must be taken into consideration by a transport company if they are to deliver the vehicles in their care in a time efficient manner.
A reliable car transport company will have the knowledge and tools to get the vehicles on their hauler delivered successfully regardless of traffic or weather. Traffic patterns don’t always persist throughout the day. Your professional transporter will pay close attention to the traffic patterns of California by staying current with reports. For example, the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration will update you of all traffic incidents each day. GPS systems and other Wi-Fi enabled devices will also guide the driver of the car hauler as it is en route.
Road construction, city driving and weather may all affect the flow of traffic. Luckily, live traffic cams set up throughout California are also very helpful to auto transport companies picking up or delivering a vehicle elsewhere in the state. It is important that a transport company expert stay on top of reports for all possible deterrents. By employing the right tools, they can plan accordingly for any incident or upcoming weather distraction that may cause a buildup of traffic in a region of the state.
What Will a Transport Professional Do When Traffic Is an Issue?
As professional drivers of car haulers and freights in the auto transport industry, you can rest assured that they’ll avoid traffic at all costs. If there are certain times within the day that traffic slows down within an area, the transporter will try to schedule their passing through those down times. Otherwise, they may decide to take an alternative route. Either way, their desire to get the cars delivered on time to satisfy their customers is something that they take very seriously.
Assuring a Timely Delivery
If it is absolutely imperative that the vehicle you are shipping arrives to its destination by a specific date, ask the transport company about high priority services. These services are designed to get your car delivered even faster.
Expedited shipping puts your car at the top of the company’s priority list, seeing that it ships out faster so that it can reach its destination even faster. Guaranteed delivery services will see that the car arrives on the date specified. A dependable and experienced transport company can offer these services because they have learned to pay close attention to traffic patterns and reports that may affect the time of travel.
