Miami, FL (Vocus) April 23, 2010
A University of Florida study cited that the temporary residents in the prime vacationing state of Florida swelled every year from around 170,000 during the summer to 920,000 during the winter months. On a state by state basis, about 13% of these temporary residents came from New York while 7.4% traveled from Michigan. Residents of Ohio and Pennsylvania also made this study’s list with 6.7% and 5.8%, respectively. They stayed in Florida an average of 5 months before returning to their permanent addresses back up in the northern areas. The average departure month for Florida vacationers was in April.
Every year, the primary moving season is from April to October, directly conflicting with the traffic from snowbirds traveling to the temporary homes. A large percentage of these movers and travelers uses auto shipping services to transport their vehicles to their new or temporary home. However, this makes it very important to secure auto shipping services early rather than later. A much less significant but important factor that also influenced the stretching of auto shipping services took travelers to the North that enjoy temporary homes near ski resorts into account.
Auto shipping services such as Budget Auto Shipping allow booking at any time of the year for the snow bird season through October. Booking such services earlier allows for a variety of benefits:
- Prices can be lower because early booking allows for planning for large
- As auto shipping is often first-come-first-served, travelers can be sure that their car travels when they do.
- Budgeting for vacation becomes easier with one flat fee rather than hidden fees associated with traveling.
For people moving a new location for a job during this busy season should remember that all auto transport services are tax deductible. This means that they do not have to pay taxes on any money that they spend to ship their vehicle to a new location when doing so is required to take a new job. When tax season approaches, calculating such expenses and filing for the associative deductions is easier when auto shipping is booked in advance. This is an especially important consideration when rising fuel prices are concerned.
