Snowbirds: Why winter visitors ship a car

 

When my husband-to-be first mentioned the term “Snowbird” several years ago, I must admit that I thought he was talking about a specific kind of car or transport vehicle I had never heard of.  The term reminded me of a classic Thunderbird I guess.  When he saw the confused look on my face, he began to explain… 

Snowbirds are seasonal travelers who choose to leave higher latitudes and freezing temperatures to join a warmer region for the winter months.  Snowbirds seem to be intelligent humans who prefer longer days and sunny afternoons rather than bundle up at 4AM to scrape ice from their windshields.  Mostly made up of retirees, snowbirds tend to prefer locations such as Texas, Arizona, Las Vegas, California, and Florida.  

Although a significant portion of snowbirds still travel via motor home, there are still many that opt to fly.  This is where we come in!  We ship their cars to any destination they choose.  Since most of them will visit the southern states for months at a time, it only makes since that they would want their own cars.  Public transportation can be time consuming, confusing, and downright scary at times. Renting a car for three months straight is not a realistic option either. 

Since we are writing to you from Texas you may think that we are biased, but here's the thing...Texas is a thing of beauty and many of these intelligent birds forsake their own states actually choosing to move here permanently.  They cannot bare to leave our friendly southern lifestyle.  So, what do they do then?  They take on another rare namesake and leave the cold behind. 

The Sunbirds.  Now that they live permanently in the south, we simply ship their cars to the north for several weeks out of the year in order for our birds to visit family and friends.  It works out perfectly for everyone! 

I guess it is important to mention that these are my words and my descriptions of our birds.  Mr. Jackson would never dream of writing a 5-6 paragraph blog.
